About Hennessey

Adoption Fee: $300
Australian Cattle Dog
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

Hennessey has waited a long time for this day, but he's ready to find his new adoptive home. He came into rescue after being taken to the local shelter after being hit by a car. He was not able to sit or stand. But despite his injuries he was the sweetest boy and had the most soulful eyes. He deserved a chance. After seeing the vet and having X-rays it was determined he had a fractured pelvis and dislocated hip. He spent over 10 weeks on crate rest to allow his pelvic bones to heal. He then was scheduled for an FHO ( Femoral Head Osteotomy ) which is the removal of the head or ball of the femur. This allows him to regain some mobility in the leg with the dislocated hip so he can walk pain free. After a few weeks of recovery he spent several weeks visiting the local Water Bark for water physical therapy to gain some strength, mobility and muscle tone. His follow up visit to the vet showed he needed to continue to build muscle and strength so he was ready to begin walking and increasing his activity. He's a happy dog who loves other dogs both smaller and his size. He does great with kids. Likes people but can be a little timid and nervous at first until he gets comfortable. He listens well and his foster mom looks forward to working on more training with him. He is house and crate trained. He would do best in a home that can let him have a regular trip outside to potty or he may need to be crated of left alone for longer periods of time. Hennessey may always have a wonky gait but it doesn't stop him from enjoying life. If you think he might be your next companion and have the time to continue to give him regular walks and exercise so he can continue to build muscle and get back the the best he can be please apply.
