Kos came into rescue in June 2014 he was found as a stray in Edinburgh so little was known of his previous life.

Older dogs are often over looked in kennels as people worry they may not have a long time with them. Kos had been 15 months in kennels and this length of time for any
dog means they can become depressed, after no enquiries maybe because he was older, had some arthritis and that he is a very big GSD.

We had lost two of our Shepherds so we had the room for him with us and we didnt want him to have another winter in kennels. He has settled well in our home and does get along with or GSD girl.

He does have pain relief for his arthritis but then he is an older man. He loves his walks but he decides how far he wants to go, he likes to chase the birds but he could
never catch them now. When the weather is good he loves to lie at the front of the house watching the world go by.

He adores his food and Im sure he can hear a crumb drop, he is so tall that he can put his nose on the table to have a look to see if he can reach anything we have learned
not to leave food out as in the early days he had pinched steak butter and garlic bread but who cares.

We have had Kos for over a year now and he is loved to bits and it is a pleasure to have him as part of the family and great that with a little patience the two dogs can live

Please dont pass by an older dog even if you dont have them a long time at least they wont spend there retirement time in kennels.

Thanks to Eileen at the kennels who did a great job of looking after him she does an amazing job.
