Resident DUBLIN returned to Glen Highland in 2021 at age 12, many years after his first rehoming when he was 4 years old. This change will be his last as he is with us for the remaining years. We’re happy to help this great guy. A happy, super smart Border Collie, he loves his ball as much as his person! Focused for lots of attention as well as ball tosses, he wins over anyone he meets.
Dublin has mobility challenges with very severe arthritis in his back-end so we’re providing much-needed pain management. When he exercises a bit too much, he has great difficulty getting up or maneuvering for normal play sessions and laying down easily. Like many Seniors, he pushes through discomfort with a strong focused will but as he ages, he will need greater pain relief since the range of motion in both back legs is so badly limited. He cannot manage any steps whatsoever and all ball games must be played ‘in close’. He sadly has a very challenging case of arthritis, worse than what we often see at Glen Highland at his age.
Dublin is a wonderful Senior full of spunk and the desire for physical activity but in reality, he will need more mental challenges since his body is so compromised. Thankfully, all his lab work indicates good health otherwise. He lived with Gypsy for the past seven years and easily fits with the other Glen Highland rescues.
