PAC has known Colin since he was a puppy- this sweet and sensitive boy’s life has had hardship, more than any puppy should ever have to endure. As a puppy he was surrendered with his littermates to PAC because his owner had an accidental litter. When they were brought in we noticed that Colin wasn’t using his back left leg- we were told “oh, yes he hurt it a week ago.” Turns out his leg was broken and he had been suffering for over a week without care. Poor Colin! Despite the pain Colin was happy, gentle and affectionate with staff. We had no choice but to amputate his leg immediately to get him on the road to recovery quickly.
Colin was quickly adopted as a puppy but returned to us recently due to a change in life-style of his family. Sadly due to some antiquated advice from the family’s veterinarian, Colin wasn’t socialized much as a puppy and as a result he can be shy, reserved and even somewhat suspicious of new people. He adores other dogs though and is most certainly a dog’s dog- he knows and trusts dogs pretty much right away. People on the other hand need to prove themselves first before he gives kisses and tail wags. So a home with another dog would likely be a wonderful placement for Colin!
When Colin returned to the Center it was immediately apparent he could not handle the stress of the noisy, busy shelter. He was very lucky to find a foster home willing to let him bunk in their house and he’s been reported to be house trained, crate trained and excellent with their dogs. A very low-key, routine life is what Colin is looking for where he can live life at his own pace. Taking time to get used to the unknown is really the only accommodation this 50 lbs shy guy needs. He gets around great on three legs and loves running around the yard. He can walk shorter distances and rides well in the car. While he loves playtime he also loves to snuggle and hang out on the couch watching tv, or just relaxing.
Colin is up to date on vaccines, neutered, and micro-chipped! He’s move-in ready! To meet Colin, email email@example.com to set up a meeting or to learn more about him!
