Saint Bernard St. Bernard - Dale - Extra Large - Adult - Male
Dale is approximately 4-5 years old. He is a great big baby that needs a loving home with a family that has the time and ability to care for him. Dale loves to play. He has a few coveted toys of his own, which he keeps a close eye on, he wants you to take a toy and throw it for him to retrieve…..but he wants YOU to work for it. He is very smart.
He is a special needs companion. Dale came into the world with some defects…a jaw deformity which requires his owner to wash his mouth out after each and every meal since food and hair debris collects under his upper lip (which without proper care can cause a very foul oder). He has a normal size tongue, but a mouth too small to accommodate it, so his tongue is always hanging outside of his mouth. This also makes drinking water a challenge. So keep the towels handy as he will need you to wipe his mouth and dry his chest and front legs often during the day. It is necessary to make sure that he is getting enough food and water. He has trouble eating and drinking due to his mouth defect. He has an eyelid condition (entropian) that makes his eyes appear to have a cold and the mucus needs to be wiped away a couple of times a day. This condition can be corrected with surgery. He will need his nose cleaned daily... no explanation as to why it runs like it does, but he doesn’t mind you wiping it with a warm cloth.
He is very lovablewithout a mean bone in his body. Because of his mouth defect he really can not defend himself, so he will need you to make sure he is safe at all times. If you are able to give Dale the extra care and love he requires, then you too will find out what a great dog he is!
