Dogs Trust is launching an appeal to find a very special dog her forever home.
Beau, a seven-year-old female Rottweiler, hit the headlines in December 2020 after she was abandoned at night outside the charity’s rehoming centre in Finglas.
Following the incident, Dogs Trust released CCTV footage showing two people walking up to the gates of the centre with the dog on a lead. They subsequently dropped the lead over a metal post then fled the scene, leaving the dog behind.
Upon veterinary examination, it was discovered that Beau had a severe ear infection that left her in enormous discomfort and caused her head to tilt. She also needed surgeries to remove several tumours.
Beau has been enjoying life with her foster family, but she is now ready to move to her forever home.
Given the number of complicated veterinary issues she has, Beau will need a very special home with people who are willing and financially able to care for her into her old age.
Niamh Curran-Kelly, Veterinary and Welfare Manager, Dogs Trust Ireland said: “Beau is doing really well, none of the conditions she has are active at the moment and she is currently not on any medication. However, she may develop lumps in the future, and if she does they will need prompt veterinary intervention. She also has pancreatitis, which will need management with a very specific diet.”
Beau is an affectionate dog who enjoys snoozing on the sofa.
She would do best in an adult-only home where she is the only pet so she can enjoy all the love and attention.
She also needs a home with a securely enclosed garden for her to enjoy.
Despite her past, Beau has a lot of love to give to the right family.
