FOR ADOPTION in CORNWALL/DEVON
NOAH - Barak Hound
FOR ADOPTION IN CORNWALL/DEVON
Darling Noah here will arrive in Cornwall on the 17th April. The following profile is based on information given to us by the Bosnian rescue shelter. If you are interested in helping Noah by short term fostering him until adoption or would like to offer this little guy his forever home, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
"A special rescue dog with a beautiful name, full of promise for a safe and peaceful future ahead.
NOAH means Repose or Rest and Peace. In the Bible, Noah was known for gathering animals “two by two” and creating an ark of refuge. The personality of the name NOAH is said to be calm and patient, waiting for things to evolve instead of pushing for an outcome. They are good-natured and easy-going, and care deeply on an emotional and spiritual plane."
A fitting name for a dog with Noah's past and faith in a better future.
Size: 50-55cm approx shoulder height
Age: 10+ years approx (April 23)
Child friendly: yes, but at his age we would prefer a quiet retirement home for Noah. Visiting dog savvy children would be fine who know how to respect a dog's boundaries.
Dog friendly: yes, Noah is ok with other dogs and could live with another dog who is calm and not too playful.
Cat friendly: not assessed
Behaviour/Temperament/Unique traits/ Training needs:
Needs to be assessed, but general training needs to be expected. As well as slow introducing to home and outdoor life as we know it.
House trained: not assessed
Blood tested/Health: Tested negative for Brucellosis, Leishmans, Heartworm, Lyme Disease, Anaplasmosis, Ehrlichia and passed his general pre-travel health check. Noah is sill in poor bodily condition and will need gradually building up with good nourishment and gentle loving care.
Rescue story: Being a Barak Hound we can only guess his past. Most likely Noah spent a lot of it on a chain until he was found of no use and was abandoned. Living as a stray is hard and Noah had his share of hardship and abuse. He was picked up as a stray, most likely after people complained about this 'unsightly' dog, and he was clearly not coping in the shelter where he was always last in line when food got provided. We were shocked when we spotted him in a video. So we decided to help this poor boy and brighten up his future. Once we reserved him Noah was taken out to a separate outdoor pen. They trimmed his fur best they could until the vet was able to neuter him and give him a shave. Noah is already feeling better, but still has a fair way to go. But what a beautiful dog there was under all this matted fur!
Ideal Home: Noah will need a quiet, kind, sympathetic and loving home with no expectations on him. He needs to live with someone who can give Noah the time and guidance he needs to settle in. We have rehomed Barak Hounds before and they make lovely pets with super temperaments. We are confident that Noah will be the same. His family needs to be patient and caring and be guided by Noah as to what he needs and when. A large enough secure grassed garden where he can relax and potter around in is essential. A rural/semi rural setting would be ideal as he won't cope well with the stresses of town living.
Vetting process applies. Meet & Greet will gladly be arranged after the application was approved.
