Boots made for the dog that is allergic to going for walkies outside
Bluey the weimaraner must wear tailor made boots otherwise his paws become unbearably sore if he goes on grass.
It’s a rough life for a dog if you are allergic to the great outdoors. But lovable Bluey has overcome his problem – by wearing a £50 set of boots. The eight-year-old weimaraner used to spend hours licking his poorly paws after walks.
Vets were stumped by his bizarre condition. But owner Julie Farr, 38, from Pembrokeshire, West Wales, solved the problem with boots specially made in the US. Julie, a nurse, said: “His paws were often inflamed and red. I tried tying carrier bags round his feet to ease the problem, but it wasn’t very practical. At first he wasn’t impressed and walked like a clown, but now he will happily wear them. It’s fantastic to see him running round without problems.”
