Dogs Name: Scooby (number 2)
Date of Birth: approx: 2007
Breed: Bull Lurcher ( large-Mastiff type)
Date came to AfGs care: January 2009
How dog was acquired: Saved from stray kennels
Was noticed at a stray kennels when AfG were there picking up a Greyhound.
He had been seen by a member of the public straying around the Norfolk coast for sometime and later managed to be caught then taken to the stray kennels by a dog warden.
We were told he was well over his statutory 8 day period, they were concerned he was not eating well, was underweight and had a cough.
AfG soon found a suitable foster home for him so were able to pick him up a few days later.
He first went to our vets ( photos taken 1 and 2) to have a full examination/health check, whereby it was discovered he had quite a bad case of kennel cough with a high temperature, chest infection and mucus coming from his eyes and nose.
He received medication and went on to his foster home, where in the weeks which followed he steadily improved physically and mentally and was soon able to be neutered then start his inoculation course.
By the size of his head and bone on a skinny frame it was obvious this young hound was going to mature into a very large lad.
Several weeks passed and Scooby was passed fit and healthy and went on to his forever home with the company of another female Bull Lurcher and a Labrador cross.
One year on Scooby (2) had grown into a big strong muscular hound weighing 42 kgs.
