This lovely 2 year old lurcher, Chico, came to us (via the vet) in April with a fractured leg and we’ve been minding him at the Shelter ever since. Thankfully, the leg has healed well and he has made a full recovery. Chico is fully back on his feet and rearing to go. Truth be told, it was difficult to keep him quiet through the healing process as this young guy has plenty of energy and is anxious to be out and about.

Chico is very used to human contact, having been minded and pampered so much, and has endeared himself to all the volunteers. He is a friendly boy and is now ready for his new life.

Chico has been neutered, microchipped (972274200409842), vaccinated and treated for worms and fleas.
