June 2012 - There are no rescues needing homesCatalan Rescue
Hobi - our handsome pet
Hobi is a clipped Catalan Sheepdog.
Dogs who are not intended for showing are sometimes clipped, particularly if they are working dogs.
Hobi is clipped because we have to take him for regular hydro-therapy session.
Hobi is one of Mei's pups (tell by the hansdome face) and when he left us he was heading for a good home and potential show wins. That was before he came up against an over caring, over feeding, regime.
Obeseity for a young pup who's muscles and bones have yet to strengthen, is just about the worst thing that can happen to it.
Hobi's hip joints could not stand the weight. Of course hobi could never be shown but at least now he has a relaxed life bedsitting any pups we have.
Once we found out we took him back and tried to help, and although you now see a lean, playful, machine, the damage has been done.
Never over-feed a puppy.
