Soooo... the time has come to say good bye and to let go. We have got to make room for the others who will surely need us. We are searching for the BEST family ever for our boy, Wyatt. He will need a very special family. Someone who is committed to making sure his physical, as well as emotional needs are met. Daily care of Wyatt is to express his bladder and bowels. Bladder every 4 hours, so he does not get a uti that could ultimately kill him. Bowels so there is less mess, a lthough he can express them on his own. His emotional health will require he be socialized with people and other dogs. He loves to go for walks at the park and meet new people. He has only ever met one dog he did not care for. That pup growled and lunged at him first. He is good with cats, kids and dogs. He does get frustrated when there is too much activity for a prolonged period of time, because he is only able to be the bystander. He should be in some sort of therapy and a rehab facility that allows dogs to swim, close to your home would be ideal. He does leak urine, but requires a carpeted surface to get around on. He cannot move through the home without it. A larger living area is a must. He is currently being fostered in a small 3 bedroom home and it is often times hard for him to navigate the doorways.
We LOVE this boy! Our lives and rescue stopped for him. We want him to live life to the fullest, and with as busy as our rescue is, it makes it hard on us to attend the many events that are needed to keep us afloat. This boy is heavy, at almost 76 lbs. He requires baths frequently to make sure he doesn't get urine scald. His caretaking is not an easy task. He is spoiled. He LOVES squeaky toys and the toys that have the crinkle sound. These are important to keep him mentally stimulated also.
If you are interested in making Wyatt a member of your family, please fill out an application on our website www.onedogatatime.us.
Please be patient with us. We are an all volunteer rescue and it is summer, so we are spread very thin at the moment.
