Other information (optional):
Sherry was shot in a village in northern Bulgaria and left disabled and incontinent (diet helps with this). After extensive rehabilitation with us at our home in Bulgaria she was rehomed through our partners in the UK to a fabulous home. There is fell in love with her brother, Splodger. She was happy and contented there for a year. Unfortunately her new Dad has been taken very ill, with little prospect of recovery and so Sherry and Splodger are currently back living with our partner rescue in the Manchester area.
Sherry has wheels and loves to be outside. She does need someone able to lift her into her wheels and who is not put off by having to change a nappy. She also gets pressure wounds and scratches from dragging her back end, when not in her wheels. She can be a bit lazy and must be encouraged to exercise. Splodger is just a loving, affectionate boy. Him and Sherry love to play together and we do not want to separate them.
We will only rehome within the Manchester area where we can provide constant support and back up. The rescue back up will include having both dogs for whenever new owner wants to go off on say holiday and can include some day care for the dogs as required from time to time.
A flat secure garden would be good for Sherry with grass so she can safely lie on the grass and move herself around.
She comes with wheels, harness, special nappies........
Taking on a disabled dog is not an easy decision but you will be rewarded with so much affection.
