After just a couple of hours of being born, Gendry, along with his nine siblings, was rejected by his mum. And with his owners understandably struggling to cope with them all, they placed the pups in our care to be hand reared and rehomed.
Not only was Gendry a bit bigger than his brothers and sisters, his character was larger than life too! Sallyanne in our dog rehoming team really took a shine to him – hear from her in our behind-the-scenes interview, below.
At first, there were some minor teething issues for the litter – quite literally. A health check revealed that Gendry and some of his siblings needed dental treatment. For Gendry, that included extracting one of his lower canine teeth. Aside from that, the pups were in good health and ready for the next step in their journey to finding a forever home.
They were then placed in the capable hands of a Woodgreen fosterer for hand rearing. Meanwhile, back at our centre, the search got underway for their new homes. Just over a month later, Gendry and his siblings were brought back to Woodgreen, where our teams worked a bit more on socialising them. And before long, they were ready to start life in the loving homes we’d found for them.
