Wyatt (estimated to be 3-4 years old) was found as a stray south of Bisbee, injured, not using his rear leg. His sweet temperament quickly won the heart of the Bisbee Animal Control Officer. Xrays found that Wyatt had prior knee surgery that did not have the appropriate post-operative care or rehabilitation. He is regaining use of his leg by building muscle and now walks easily on all fours. He tip toes around the house quiet as can be, rarely barks and can hypnotize you with his sweet brown eyes. He does well around dogs of all sizes. He is beyond the age of silly puppy antics and can be trusted in the home when you are not around. You will come home to find him curled up in the tiniest little circle in a warm spot where the sun comes through the window. He is a gentle soul and wise beyond his years. We don’t know how he initially injured his leg but this cowboy will likely always have little “hitch in his get-a-long” although it doesn’t slow him down when he hears the dinner bell. All who wander may not be lost, we think that Wyatt was just out looking for a new family who promises to provide him a security, love and he in turn will always stay close to his “amigo”.
Wyatt adores affection and attaches to his people and fellow pups for comfort. He seems to have been handled rough in the past and is a big scared of loud voices and rough movements. Wyatt is a dog that should only be trained with positive methods. He is crate trained, walks well on a leash, and enjoys having his nails trimmed.
