hi, i am writing to ask for some advice on my new dog. its nearly 3 years old, its deaf, has a pin in his leg, has hurrendous teeth and the vets are due to remove most of them, his eyes get so bad with gunk in the corners, it goes hard and its like torture to clean it off. i have tried all things but it still remains to be a struggle. he is very grumpy and a really stubborn dog. ive never seen a poodle before nevermind know about their temperment and ailments. id be very grateful if you could give me some tips on how to make sure he is happy and pain free many thanks nicola x

I admire the fact that you are trying to provide a better life for this dog. Keep on going, and I'm sure he'll get to feeling better soon. We all need to know that someone cares, and apparently he hasn't had anyone caring about him in the past. Three isn't very old to be having all these problems.
