Bucko, a magnificent golden charmer, is in search of a forever home where he can snuggle up and live a life of luxury. He’s a sight to behold with his soft golden fur, playful smile, and lively fluffy tail that never seems to stop wagging, all of which reflect his cheerful disposition.

Bucko, once a stray in dire straits, has been transformed by the loving care of our rescue team. His resilience and cheerful spirit shine through every day.Bucko would be delighted with a home that has a secure garden where he can bask in the sunshine. He’s not demanding in terms of space; a dog bed and a handful of toys would suffice for him.

He may be selective with other dogs in the home, which probably originates from his time on the streets where he had to compete for food. He’s comfortable on walks when other dogs are present, but he would like to be the sole dog in the household to enjoy undivided attention. Surprisingly, Bucko prefers cats over other dogs, he is absolutely fine with the resident cats in the shelter and could happily share his home with a feline companion.

We would rehome him with children over the age of 12.

Bucko is a Leishmaniasis positive dog. Leishmaniasis is a parasitic disease caused by infection with Leishmania parasites. These parasites are spread through the bite of infected sand flies. It is likely that he caught it while on the streets and has no lasting effects from it. He has undergone treatment with Milteforan and continues on Allopurinol, which we will supply to his owner for his lifetime. It’s simply a daily tablet that he takes with his dinner, eating it happily without any fuss, along with annual blood tests. He can run and play the same as any other dog and will live a long, happy life with his forever family. It is a shame that the stigma of a disease has prevented dogs from being adopted. Leish CANNOT be spread to humans or other animals.
