    Default Picked Up My New Best Friend Today

    Hello all
    Long time reader, first time poster.
    Today I finally got my little guy which means I actually have something to write about now
    His name is Banjo and he is about 1 year old and a real bitza (if anyone can see the profile picture and has an idea of what he might be would love to hear your thoughts! Im thinking he has some papillion in him for sure- doesnt matter a bit though)
    We went to the RSPCA down in Lonsdale and they were very helpful and im glad there are people like them in the world.
    Anyway the main reaosn for posting (besides saying hi and showing off his picture) is to ask some thoughts.. He was desexed 2 days ago so still has his stitches in. I am a bit worried though as he will not stop licking them and he has a rash not for from that area. Other then that though he seems fine, is eating, playing and doesnt seem to be in any pain or discomfort (aside from licking constantly) I am definitely taking him to the vet tomorrow- both to get it checked and to have him checked over and discuss worming etc. I am just hoping my mind could be put at rest for tonight, should I call the emergency vet or is it fine to moniter for tonight?
    Also this might sound weird but he still has his little nuts- I thought when they desexed male dogs they took them off? not that I care I am just wondering why they are still on? Anyone know? Is this a new way of doing it?
    Anyway sorry for the long post, will most likely be posting a lot more now that I am a bonafide dog owner.
    Oh and if anyone can reccommend a good training group in Adelaide for my naughty little fella I would love some advice/ reccomendations.
    Till next time!

    Welcome! Good on you for getting a rescue. Try to stop him licking the wound site, your vet will be able to give you something tomorrow, it's not an emergency vet visit situation. He still has his ball sac, just no balls lol, over time it will shrink down, but there's always be a dangly bit there, although it may shrink down to virtually nothing.

    Can't help with training places, but someone else here will be able to!

    Hi and welcome to the forum! for taking on a rescue!

    I'm sorry I can't help with recommendations for a training facility BUT I do know that as Greys has said, the swollen sac is normal, it will go down and it's probably either red looking or purple? Definitely stop him from licking every time you can though, as it can cause problems to the wound

    Hello Banjo looks very cute. No doubt very lucky to find someone to love him.
