Needs to have a fenced environment and would benefit from obedience training.
Alfie came to us from a breeder. He is super cute and sweet! Our ortho vet partners diagnosed him with HOD or hypertrophic osteo dystrophy. It is a disease where the bones grow faster than the rest of the body. It is common in large breed dogs and usually presents itself between 2 to 4 months. The cause is really not known. The treatment is pain control with drugs and restricting calories so he will grow slower. He is in foster care where he is getting plenty of TLC and attention. He's adorable! Stay tuned for updates on his health.
