A senior dog brought into the BC SPCA after he was found wandering alone on a residential property in Grand Forks will be available for adoption soon.
Kringle, a hearing-impaired seven-year-old black Labrador retriever, was transferred to the BC SPCA’s South Okanagan animal centre before being brought up to Kelowna.
“Kringle is a very sweet old man, who based on the scars on his face, has had a very hard life,” explained Shannon Paille, manager of the BC SPCA’s Kelowna animal centre.
“He just wants all the attention and love he can get. He will give you one look with those big, endearing eyes and you just know he wants a cuddle.”
A veterinarian examined Kringle and found he had serious dental issues, so he was put on pain medication immediately and has since had surgery to have four teeth removed.
“He was also suffering from a number of teeth that were dead and ground down, as well as a chipped canine,” noted Paille.
Unfortunately, there were some post-surgery complications for the dog.
“Kringle had to be taken to an emergency clinic after his sutures broke open,” Paille added. “He had to go back into surgery to have his gums re-sutured.”
With all his troubles hopefully behind him now, Kringle will be available for adoption in around 10 days and will hopefully be able to find a forever home in time for the holidays.
The BC SPCA is also accepting donations to care for Kringle and other animals, which you can do through the organizaton’s website.
Petsecure Pet Health Insurance were so inspired by Kringle’s story that they will match up to $3,500 in donations.
