Hootie, Collie Mix, four years-old
Hootie is a well-educated canine
companion who is housebroken, knows basic obedience; plays fetch
beautifully, and will "go find an object on command. But he
has not always walked an easy road, literally. Soon after
Hootie was rescued from a local animal control facility by North
Shore Animal League America, it was discovered he needed more
than just a home. Diagnosed with bilateral hip dysplasia and
bilateral stifle (knee) problems, Hootie underwent a series of
four separate surgeries at the League's medical center,
successfully correcting both knees and hips. Though Hootie may
not be the most graceful canine in the pack these days, he has
recovered well and loves to run and play.
Recovery required months of
inactivity and confinement, which can be hard on any dog,
especially a smart, affectionate dog like Hootie. Treating the
mind, as well as the body, both the League's medical and
behavioral staff has been on the case. He spends a great deal
of this time out of his kennel run in either the training office
or in the shelters"Real Life Room "(an area designed to imitate
a home environment). Now he needs a home with people who know
what it means to have a dog and are committed to providing a
strong leadership role. He needs a loving family with children
over the age of twelve and to move out of the "Real Life Room"
into a real home.
