DOGS OF THE WEEK - TOAST and PRINCE

Toast and Prince are looking for a home together as they are very bonded and have a lovely relationship. They can often be found curled up on the same bed together and rely on one another for companionship, and Prince will often rest his head on Toast’s back when they stand together.

With other dogs, they tend to like to keep to themselves, though they have shown to be more comfortable with other dogs after having an opportunity to get to know them over a period of time. Toast in particular finds playful or overly interactive dogs quite intimidating and they would both prefer walks in quiet places where they will not be forced to greet lots of dogs. They are quietly affectionate with people- Toast is the more confident of the two around people and will push your hand with his nose for attention and loves a back scratch. Prince needs a bit of time and food to make friends but once he knows you, you'll have a friend for life.

Toast and Prince will need some further training whilst settling into their new home, this will include house training and recall. They both enjoy their walks and are playful at times, but also settle well and are gentle and relaxed, as long as they have a comfortable bed big enough for them both.

They are a lovely pair, who will reward their new owners with lots of love and affection.
