  • People friendly. He has not shown any signs of aggression towards people in his original home or those he has met during the short time he has been in our care.  He seems to really enjoy human interaction.
  • He has not experienced much outside of his original home and so is under socialised and looks to his handler for support and guidance in new environments
  • He will need clear boundaries setting in the home
  • He appears to have quite a high prey drive
  • Has lived with female dogs but is not good around male dogs and is easily overwhelmed and can react when meeting any new dog
  • He had limited obedience training
  • He may not be fully house trained (a crate is advised to help with this, but he will need crate training)
  • Ok travelling in the car
  • Has been ok on trips to the vets

Meet and greet booked – Mack (11mths)

A lovely young man who has been given clear boundaries and has several basic obedience commands in his tool kit, although he has shown signs of resource guarding, and the odd thing (e.g., loud noises) can make him anxious.   He’s a big bouncy pup still and so play with other dogs can be full on but in general he is good with them.  He is ok in the car but does bark and howl at times.  His crate is his safe place, he loves it and so settles best when in it and it keeps him out of trouble (chewing) when left at night or left unsupervised throughout the day.
