Hello, my name is Orson and I’m seven years old. I arrived at SPR in November last year suffering from an extremely under active thyroid, a very itchy skin condition and that bane of a Pei’s life – entropion!!!!

Well, of course Amanda went into full gear and in no time I was de-sexed, on thyroxine (which I will need to take for the rest of my life – but two tablets a day– no drama), on a proper diet and had entropion surgery.

At the moment I am staying with my foster mum and a Pei foster sister, who I have a lot of fun with, especially playing tug of war with a rope toy. I am really ready for a forever home, though.

My foster mum says –

Orson is a beautiful, affectionate, cheeky, playful boy with a quirky personality and big soulful eyes, who just wants to be loved. He sits waiting for his food (and indeed anytime the fridge door opens) smacking his lips like he can already taste it.

He would be great with a female dog or on his own, a family with teenage children, or would make a perfect companion for someone living by themself as he follows me everywhere, even out into the dark when I put the rubbish out. He doesn’t ask for much – a warm bed inside (he’s used to a dog door), good quality food, some play time and of course lots of TLC.  I n short Orson is just AWESOME!!!!!!

Orson has recently been diagnosed as diabetic.  This does not effect his life span or his quality of life while ever he takes his daily medication, which is 2 x injections of insulin per day which are easy to administer.  That brings the total cost of Orsons daily meds (thyroxine and insulin) to about $3 per day.

With this new medication requirement, we would like to offer some financial assistance to anyone interested in adopting Orson.  We want to see him settled in his very own loving forever home.  Please be advised that Orson's adoption fee is now by donation to SPR.
