Lewis 3yr old Springer Spaniel HOMED

Postby kaydoyle » Tue Aug 29, 2017 2:02 pm

Lewis 3yr old Springer came to us last week in shocking condition...he has had a chain mark on his neck and was so matted he had to be shaved. He is on anitibiotics for a skin infection Thanks to Naoimi Tracey in @The Canine Centre for grooming him at a moments notice. He is now in foster with Adrian & family where he is getting all the tlc he so deserves....

Lewis has settled in well with us now. He is full of life, loves lots of walks and really enjoys his cuddles. He is also great in the car, once he settles down ;)
He is a bit of a fussy eater at the moment but am sure that will improve while he is with us and once he is off his antibiotics.
He is not a barker and is really friendly with all people and other dogs. He pulls a little on the lead at the moment but this is only because he want to sniff everything along the way :)

His first trip was to Leixlip for a walk to "The Wonderful Barn" as seen in this picture.

On Sunday we took Lewis to Donabate to see how he would get on at the beach.
He loved the wide open space and sniffing around the rocks and did venture in for a swim with a little help from Michael :D
See his beach day video at the link below....

Lewis enjoying his Friday evening walk over at "The Wonderful Barn" in Leixlip while his best buddy, Michael, was at Rugby Training in MU Barnhall RFC. :)

Lewis is with us a week and is getting much better with his eating. He seems to prefer one sitting in the evening and a mixture of dry and tinned food with a little water to soften the dry food. He is getting better on the lead and when off the lead he loves to run over and say hello to any person or dog around. He does come back most of the time when called. He is currently enjoying a chew on his hide bone....
