Donald waited 10 whole months to come over to the UK from the Romanian kill-shelter and was very close to his PTS date. The poor boy has been absolutely traumatised by the public shelter and his treatment from people.
You can see in the photos above how frightened Donald is. He is making very slight progress as he's settling but it breaks our hearts to see this boy so frightened.
Donald is getting into the swing of the rescue structure and will come in and out of his kennel on his own. We have caught glimpses of him trotting around the yard with his friends when he thinks we are not watching.
Donald needs a very, very patient person that can build up his relationship with people and will not force him to do anything he is not ready for.
As he is very shut down at the moment we are finding it challenging to introduce him to new dogs without overwhelming him, he has come on little bits since we have paired him with a couple of the female dogs in the rescue.
He is much too shy to live with young children so will suit a quiet home with kids over 16 years.
He will need a polite but confident female dog to lead the way and teach him how to be a dog.
He is not lead trained and will not be ready to do this for some time - for now he needs a permanent home that will allow him to come out of his shell slowly.
Kids: Over 16 years
Dogs: Yes - medium female
Fencing: 5ft minimum
