Ludo Neutered 2 YO Male - Georgia 

Fee = $ 350

Ludo, is a beautiful 2 year old malinois. He is very friendly and loves his people. Ludo came to rescue from a shelter and was brought in to rescue during the COVID crisis. Ludo is a mini-mal weighting in at just 48 pounds. He is untested with cats or children and seems to do well with other dogs. 

Ludo came to rescue with some wounds. The shelter was treating these and ABMR is continuing that treatment. After he was at his first foster home for a few weeks, he came down with a mysterious illness. Many great ABMR volunteers have been supporting him and doctoring him back to health. You can see some of the sores in the photos. Ludo is nearly recovered. He had lost weight but has gained back up to 53 pounds. 

It was thought the illness was a tick borne illness that would be treated with antibiotics. Ludo was on antibiotics for several weeks before test were ran, but these came back negative. This is likely due to the antibiotic treatment, however, an autoimmune illness can't be ruled out fully. Additional blood work is schedule for early July.

Since his recover he is very active. He loves his people and he loves his ball. He is obsessed with the jolly ball on a rope in his foster's back yard. Ludo will destroy his crate in order to try to get to a toy.  He will need someone with some training experience to work with him on releasing his toys and ball.

Ludo is a very special and loving boy. He has intense toy drive and would do best in an experienced sport home.  However, his health issues will not make him a good candidate for someone looking for a serious competition dog.

Ludo's perfect family is going to love him for life. They must also be able to provide him with high quality food, supplements and excellent vet care.. Ludo prefers being close to his people and getting lots of attention. He is housebroken and crate trained. He is so very sweet. It is unknown at this time if he will need maintenance drugs. 

It is recommended that Ludo remain on a high quality diet for his life. He also gets a variety of supplements to keep him strong and healthy.
