Drover, a 6 yr old, Desexed, shorthaired BC, is searching for his forever home.
Drover has Cerebelar Abiotrophy,(Wobblers Disease) and ideally he needs a space to call his own. I have had Drover for about a month now with the intention of him being a mate for our other BC. Sadly this arrangement has not worked out.
Drover does not need any special medical care or medications. He does not require special food. I have experimented with Fish Oil and Vit E in his food and on these supplements he does seem to have "better' days.
But the aggression towards our other dog still occurs. I have been informed by his previous owner that he was friends with a female dog and that worked well. I have not explored this avenue. Drover does not require any extra care to any other dog, just an understanding of his condition.
Drover LOVES his walks.....he gets 2 per day and the rest of day he sleeps as he gets quite exhausted. He falls down a lot but gets straight back up and keeps going. He craves human contact and its very obvious when he's happy with humans. So he needs a family where there is someone around often and not out for long hours.
The current situation I have to keep the 2 dogs in is unacceptable for both of them and to be fair to both of them. I am needing to move Drover on. He is in good health, has a hefty appetite , has had an initial vet visit in which they recorded his condition, wormed and vaccinated.
He is a lot smaller than most Border Collies. He is located in Tarneit, Melbourne's west. I would like the potential new home to come and view Drover out on a walk and we can discuss his needs.
I just wish to find the best home for Drover that he deserves. If he got along with our other dog, he would be staying. But the situation is not good for either.
