Original Listing: Beau is approx 10 years old. He is about 35 pounds and is a Terrier mix. He was found running as a feral dog in the swamps of Virginia where he was trapped and turned over to rescue.He had a broken back, pelvic and hip that healed but not in great alignment. He was shot in the ankle at some point and has bullet fragments in his lower leg. His leg works but he does limp and it has the shape of a spatula. He was HW positive and had other swamp issues upon rescue. He is now HW negative and actually is fairly healthy at this point. He has the skeletal issues and his fractures are to old and numerous to fix per his Vet.
His biggest issues are emotional. While he is friendly to me, potty trained, uses a doggie door and knows the routine, he is still unable to be walked on a leash. He goes ballistic...he has to be carried to the Vet appointments and he thrashes the whole time. He needs a securely fenced yard due to his fear issues and he needs an adult home that is quiet with a nice routine. He can be bed territorial with other other animals.
