As you can imagine, this involves a great deal of work and money - which often comes out of the pockets of the AGK9 team. Waifs & Strays rely on the generosity of donations and support via their Facebook page, and the kindness of dog lovers who take home and care for the strays.
The back story for Cain the rottweiller is a particularly sad one. Before finding his way to AGK9 via Waifs & Strays, Cain lived in a cage and, aside from a quick visit to the garden, was hardly ever let out. This previous bad treatment led to Cain developing dog-to-human aggression issues, mainly towards males, and he has now been rehabilitated by the hard working team at AGK9.
Liam, professional dog trainer at AGK9, says "We've worked really hard to help change Cain's negative behaviour and have seen great improvement;
Unfortunately, despite Cain's new found happiness he has taken a turn for the worse.
Liam continues, "We were hoping to offer this loveable rottweiler for rehoming in the near future, but he started showing signs of ill health and a visit to the vet confirmed the bad news that Cain has a heart murmur. He needs regular medication costing £135.00 a month to stay on top of his condition, and we've already spent £700.00 towards his medical bills out of our own pockets."
The AGK9 team have several stray dogs currently in their care, and can no longer afford to support Cains needs. Without the medication his condition will worsen until there is no other choose but to PTS.
Their hope is to find a Forever Home for Cain to enjoy the rest of his life out of kennels and on regular medication.
Liam says "Please help support him if you can, via Sponsorship or by taking this poor dog home. We will give free training to anyone interested in taking good care of Cain, to help keep him on the right path."
