This handsome chap is with us through no fault of his own. He is sociable with people, and dogs he meets out and about, but he is not suited to living with other dogs. He travels well in a car. He’s a bouncy boy that needs a bit of work on his general obedience, recall and loose lead walking. He is crate trained and uses it at night, when left unsupervised in the home and when his humans are eating.
We know very little about this young man because of the way he came into our care. He is nervous but appears to be a sweet natured boy around people. He needs muscle tone building and a good quality food to help improve his coat quality. He is currently under assessment.
Crated trained and can be left up to 4hrs. He loves ball play. Travels well in the car. He has played nicely with dogs that he knows but on one occasion he pinned a puppy down. He can walk nicely on lead but does pull on occasion (needs work) and barks at other dogs whilst on lead. He’s not really been socialised around fast-moving objects (e.g. joggers, traffic, cyclists), or livestock but has been known to chase the odd cat or two. He has proved to be unreliable around children, although the circumstance/triggers for this are unclear.
A needy boy who struggles to settle in the home, he’s not been left to his own devices but when his hoomans do leave the home for short 10-minute stints he watches at the window and howls. When frustrated/anxious he chews things he shouldn’t. His play biting is harsh and will need work. Travels well in the car. He is cautious around children. Nervous around loud noises. On lead he’s not really interested in other dogs, but if they come to meet him, he will sniff and then want to play. He’s not been off lead around other dogs. Moving objects (cats, joggers, cyclists) get him excited, the harsh play biting starts along with other behaviours that make walking on lead tricky.
A delicately built young lady – it appears she has probably had a litter of pups. She chews household and personal items, including walls, carpets, door, sofa, coats – we’ll have to work on this and get her crate trained. She has displayed aggressive indicators towards strangers and other dogs, both on and off the lead. She doesn’t like cats; she pulls on the lead and has no recall. She has yet to be neutered. In the little time we’ve spent with her it is clear she is a nervous dog. She is currently under assessment and so these details may change – watch out for ‘introducing’ to change to ‘all about me’ indicating her assessment is complete.
A big strong lad who likes a quiet life as can react to unexpected noises and interactions – not suited to a home with young children. Doesn’t chew household or personal items and can be left on his own for periods of time. Hasn’t had any exposure to cats but does like to chase squirrels. He is settled when travelling in a car. Has some great basic obedience skills including recall. He has only just joined us and so is only just starting his assessment and so these details may change – watch out for his ‘all about me’ when the assessment is complete.
