Elvis is a good-natured , docile dog of about 3yrs, who loves life.

Unfortunately he has not had an easy life and has spent some months in kennels, before he was found a foster home.

He has adapted very well to living in more spacious surroundings.

He loves human company, has shown that he can play and learns quickly. He is laid-back and is not phased by other animals.

Excellent on the lead and obedient.

Elvis has Leishmaniasis.

Leishmaniasis is a disease that is transmitted by the sand fly Mosquito in Spain, A sand fly has to bite an infected dog and carry the infected blood to the next dog it feeds from and will then infect that dog, You cannot catch Leishmaniasis from a dog with the condition, you need to be bitten by a sandfly and we do not have any in the UK, so a dog with Leish is not contagious to you or your family. Mediterranean Leish is not the same as African Continent Leish which can be transmitted to humans.

In the Uk vets do not have much knowledge of this condition and often can give advice that may be over cautious. We us Vets Klinic and they now have a good understanding of the condition.
Dogs who come to the UK with Leish, come with their blood tests and medication. Stress in dogs with Leish can lead to dogs having a higher reading and once settled in a loving home many dogs reading lowers, sometimes to the point they no longer need medication.

Medication will be provided for life should it be needed.
