Meet Rex! Rex was surrendered by his guardian when they didn't have the time or resources to keep him. When he arrived, he was very fearful and unsure of his new environment and interacting with us. It took a week for him to trust one person, and over time he has slowly gained confidence meeting new people.
Rex needs a very patient guardian with experience with fearful dogs. He bonds very quickly and will need a human who has a lot of time for him as he is a high energy boy. Rex has EPI which is exocrine pancreatic insufficiency. Sometimes called pancreatic insufficiency for short, EPI is the inability to break down and digest food properly. This requires daily medication which goes into each meal to help him digest his food. At this time, he still needs to gain weight and requires a special diet. He is also on medication to help with his fearful behaviour, which has been very successful in rehabilitating him! His new guardian should have the financial means to take him regularly for vet check ups.
Rex has lived with a dog before. He can be quite excitable meeting new dogs. This behaviour will need continued work. This boy is incredibly engaging and affectionate. You often will see him with a toy in his mouth which is security blanket. He loves his babies and his super playful. If you think you can provide the right environment for Rex, please give us a call!
