All about Hudson

Hudson is a gentle, well mannered boy who knows his basic commands and has nice house manners.  He enjoys spending time with people, is friendly and affectionate, and loves to give big kisses!  He is gentle and an overall big, lovable fella'.

Hudson has been happily hanging out with the other four footed pals at his foster home.  He could join a family where there is another well mannered, gentle dog. He is also respectful of cats.

Having said that, Hudson does at time guard his food bowl (from some dogs only - never from humans), so should not be left unsupervised with other animals when he is eating.

This sweet boy came to us through no fault of his own when changes in his family meant that he was not receiving the care that he needed.

Hudson was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2015 but sadly was left untreated.  As a result of this he had been experiencing weakness, pain, swelling and feeling very unwell.  When he entered our care we started treatment promptly and Hudson is feeling loads better!  His treatment is now complete and he is all better!

On intake he was suffering from severe skin, ear and eye infections, likely due to low thyroid function.  He has responded very well to treatment and now looks and feels loads better!   A healthy diet, and proper management of his thyroid, will help Hudson to stay in good condition.  Hudson takes meds to stabilize his thyroid function and is now receiving the correct dose and is no longer exhibiting symptoms of hypothyroidism.  These pills cost about $25/month.  He is also benefiting significantly from daily eye drops, which will be a long term requirement for Hudson.

Hudson is being fostered in Stayner, ON. His approved adopters will be required to pick him up in person. An adoption donation of $500 will apply.
