What a wonderful change in Cory. He has totally come out of his shell and is starting to be playful and is totally settled. Cory got to spend a few days at Run Free Canine Centre. http://www.runfreecaninecentre.com/ and had a blast. He got along with everyone there although he felt he had to monitor the puppies playing. He also spent the better part of 2 weeks with little dogs and once they were brave enough to tell him off for licking them, he stopped.
Cory has had his dental. He had 5 teeth removed and we have seen a huge change in his appetite. He now gobbles his food and clearly enjoys every single bite.
We also had his hips rechecked. Cory does not have hip dysplacia. He has Spondylosis. What this means is that there is bone growths on his lower spine. He is tender in that area and we are looking into accupuncture and hydro therapy.
Cory is now ready for adoption. He is learning that getting in the truck is not an awful thing and he is totally fine once he gets going. If you are looking for a dog that just wants to hang out with you, then look at bringing Cory into your family. This affectionate boy really deserves a home of his own.
We think Cory is between 6 - 8 yrs old Cory came to us from a shelter on Vancouver Island. He was turned into the shelter when someone saw him limping down the highway.
Cory is a smaller fellow at about 65 lbs. He is lean and needs to be kept lean as he has hip dysplasia. We dont' think its too bad and any discomfort is kept well away with inexpensive meds and some great suppliments.
This guys is a treat to have around. He takes a day or two to warm up but once he loves you, he loves you. He is always full of kisses and bum wags. and if your not watching he is quick to crawl up on the couch. He has proven himself to be great in the house and will make someone a wonderful addition.
Cory lives with a little dog that has no trouble telling him off, but we think he would do best either with a submissive female or as an olnly dog. Cory loves to chase small furry things and we doubt he could live with a cat or other small creatures.
And the other thing about Cory is he is not fond of riding in a car. He is learning to go in and out of our SUV on a rampbut will need to continue to learn that great things happen when you go for a car ride.
Cory will only be adopted within British Columbia. Feel free to drop us a line if you would like an application emailed to you.
