Staff at Dogs Trust Ilfracombe Rehoming Centre are keen to find a loving home for a gorgeous eight year old brindle Staffie cross called Cassie.
Cassie is a very friendly lady who loves fuss and cuddles, but is in need of some extra love and attention as she is deaf and also has a back condition called Spondylosis.
Cassie is housetrained and good out on a lead and her favourite activity is playing with her toys. She would love to be the only dog in a new owner’s life, as she loves being the centre of attention.
Her deafness shouldn’t cause concern for perspective new owners as she has learnt to respond well to people’s body language, but she is in need of some tender loving care regarding her back condition which can cause her discomfort.
Chris Laurence, Veterinary Director of Dogs Trust comments: ‘Spondylosis is a condition that causes inflammation of the spine. The condition is quite common in German Shepherd dogs, but it can affect all dogs.
‘The condition is progressive, but it can be managed with medication.’
Due to her back problem, Cassie is on Dogs Trust’s foster scheme, so once Cassie is rehomed, the new owner would only have to pay for routine vet treatment, such as worming, flea treatment and vaccinations and the first £7.50 of any additional treatment, but Dogs Trust would continue to pay for the remainder of the cost of veterinary care for her condition.
For anyone interested in rehoming Cassie, please contact Dogs Trust Ilfracombe on 01271 812709. The Rehoming Centre is open everyday from 12-4pm, except Wednesdays.
