Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, the RSPCA is looking for a very special home for Donald the dog, who was named after the cartoon duck – because of his waddle.
Poor Donald has been diagnosed with hyper extension of the carpi ligaments which means he walks with his front feet slightly turned up.
But despite his disability, this friendly chappie is full of life, and has oodles of love and energy.
Donald is now six months old and a typical little staffie and is full of beans.
He is currently being cared for at the RSPCA Gonsal Farm Animal Centre in Shrewsbury.
Di Jones, deputy manager at the centre, said: “Donald does look a little funny when he trots around the centre, but he is such a gorgeous little fella and despite his deformity he takes it all in his stride.
“Despite his condition he won’t need any surgery and he will have a good quality of life, it just might mean that he has to wear some special surgical socks on the pads on his feet to protect them.
“He was brought in to the RSPCA because of concerns over his health. We think he was the runt of the litter and was born with this condition, but it has never held him back, everyone who meets Donald simply falls in love with him, but as yet, nobody has come forward to offer him a home.
“Donald was named after Donald Duck because of his funny little walk. He is full of beans and loves people, and gets on with other dogs and cats, but he would benefit from some basic obedience training and puppy classes.
“Donald is a sweet little lad with a good heart and would make the perfect companion.”
