?Yukon is Dog of the Week?
Right lovely people we really would appreciate your help with sharing Yukon. He has a few hurdles that make him less likely to be adopted. He’s a bigger dog, he’s black and Yukon has an over reactive thyroid which means we need to find someone that is happy to fund £30 of medication roughly a month. BUT we’re hoping someone will know that he’s worth it as he’s an extremely loving dog with a sweet temperament. Please share for Yukon ?
Yukon is fostered near Norwich. He is a gorgeous, cuddly Rottweiler cross of around five to six years old.
Yukon was rescued from a kill shelter in Romania two years ago and has waited patiently for the chance of a home since then. He is a favorite with the carers at the shelter as he is such a charming and loving boy. On our recent trip to Romania we noticed how much weight he’d gained since our trip in April. This combined with a chance remark from one of his carers about how little he eats led us to ask for him to be bloodtested for thyroid problems. Sure enough the results came back as overactive and he is now on treatment for the condition. Over the next few weeks we will be prioritizing building up his exercise alongside the medication and soon he will be in a much more comfortable physical condition. The future now looks brighter for Yukon. His condition will need to be managed for life but it’s a simple tablet daily and a blood test every six months. It will average out at a cost of around £30 a month and we are hopeful we will find someone who thinks he’s worth this.
Words cannot express how affectionate and comical this boy is. He is as big in character as he currently is in body and has double the volume of love to give. He is also happy to live with cats.
Update: Yukon is no longer available for adoption but please have a look at our current Dogs for Adoption.
