Neo is a special boy with one of the worst stories we have ever came across here at the rescue. Along with another dog, he was viciously attacked with an axe at the hands of his owner in December 2017. The catalogue of injuries Neo suffered were just incomprehensible and broke our hearts, he is very lucky to be alive.
Both dogs spent 6 months in police kennels before being signed over to us for rehoming in June 2018. Thankfully the other dog (Santos) has now found a fantastic home and we are desperate to find the same for Neo.
We cannot even begin to imagine the suffering that Neo had endured not only through this deliberate act of cruelty but also in the months following after finding himself in kennels and separated from the only life he had ever known.
Despite everything Neo has been through he is such a sweet, friendly boy.
He finds rescue life quite stressful and can take his frustration out by grabbing plastic bottles or stones on walks. He can also be quite vocal during play and can get a little too over enthusiastic around toys! We have found that with a consistent routine involving a small group of trusted dog walkers Neo is starting to improve. He enjoys his walks and is generally a happy boy.
Neo will take time adjusting to his new home after spending so long in kennels.
At this stage we will be looking for an adult only, pet free home for Neo with a kind and patient owner who can help him overcome the traumas of his past. We do not know how he will cope when he is left alone so ideally his new owner will be around for most of the day. He is such a beautiful dog and will make a truly devoted companion.
Update November 2018: Neo has possible kidney problems which we are currently investigating further, he will be having a repeat blood test shortly. In addition to this Neo is also awaiting X-rays as he does walk with a hop.
