A three-legged dog is looking for his forever home after spending two years at a shelter in Glasgow.

Staff at the Dogs Trust rehoming centre are “flummoxed” as to why eight-year-old Flump has yet to be adopted.

The Staffordshire Bull Terrier is described as having a “sweet” nature despite having a difficult life, and is said to have faced his challenges with great gusto.

When he arrived at the Glasgow rehoming centre in August 2022 he had been neglected, and had a damaged right hind leg that was eventually amputated.

Sandra Downie, manager at Dogs Trust Glasgow Rehoming Centre said that the pup has adapted to life on three legs “brilliantly”.

She added that the blue-eyed boy is “very clever and loves to learn new things”, adding: “The training team have spent lots of time with Flump which has paid off.

“He is an expert at responding to voice cues including going to bed, standing behind a gate and settling on command.

“Flump learns quickly and we are keen that his training continues in his new home.”

Flump also has a skin allergy which the charity says may require short term treatment.

“Flump is such a beautiful boy both inside and out and we encourage anyone looking to share their life with a loving and loyal dog to come and meet our fabulous Flump,” Ms Downie said.

The charity said that while Flump is super friendly with people he can feel overwhelmed around other dogs so requires an adult only home with no other pets or neighbouring dogs.

“He would also enjoy being exercised in dog free areas where he can relish relaxing walks. A secure garden space would ensure Flump is one very happy boy,” Dogs Trust said.
