Santa was rescued from Chestnut dog farm in late December 2018. He was a very heavy dog as the farmer was feeding him 10 meals a day to fatten him up.
When he first arrived at the shelter he was always hungry and could only walk very short distancs before he had to sit down. Now he is eating less and taking more interest in activities around him, and can walk a lot further.
He is an incredibly affectionate dog who alwasy wants to be very near people. When Santa has slimmed down a bit more he should be healthy enough to fly.
