Battersea Dogs & Cats Home resident, Brody, loves cuddles and has a happy-go-lucky personality – in fact those who meet him find it hard not to fall in love with him. But despite his charms, Battersea staff face a challenge in finding the right home for this lovely five year old black Labrador.
Seeing Brody play happily with his human and canine friends, nobody would guess that Brody has a medical condition similar to arthritis of the spine. Brody’s condition is called Lumbosacral Disease.
Brody was brought to Battersea’s Old Windsor centre when his owner’s circumstances changed, meaning they could no longer take care of him. Due to his condition, Brody isn’t able to play rough and tumble games with other dogs, and as he ages it’s likely that he will need ongoing medical treatment.
Battersea Dogs & Cats Home Old Windsor Centre Manager Kaye Mughal says: “Brody is such an affectionate dog and all the Battersea staff love to sit with him and have cuddles and kisses. But we urgently need to find our resident snuggle-lover a home. He’s a super happy boy, but ultimately the kennels are not a good long-term environment for a dog with his condition so we want to get him into a new home as quickly as we can.
“We know it’s going to be hard to find the perfect family for Brody- but we’re crossing our fingers for a Christmas miracle. We know there’s a special home out there for him, where he can have all the cuddles and attention he deserves.”
Brody loves other dogs and children, but due to his medical condition a home where he is the only dog will be best for him, and older children will be his best companions.
