About Me

This gorgeous boy was found straying and came into our care a few months ago. We think he is around 18 months old. He is the most adorable dog, who loves human company and affection and loves nothing more than to sit on top of you on the sofa for a cuddle. He is a bit large for such activities but he still insists on doing it. He is friendly, confident and outgoing and enjoys pretty much everything.

He is a bright boy and has spent some time getting used to a home. He is housetrained, walks really well on the lead and doesn’t pull. Because he loves people so much we think he would prefer being with someone who is around most of the time to help him settle into a routine.

He is good with other dogs and loves to play. He can sometimes be a bit enthusiastic when playing so would need a companion with similar play styles and energy levels. He could live with any breed of dog pending introductions. He also loves children but because he is rather boisterous we think he would be better with teenage children, unless they were used to big bouncy dogs.

He would prefer an active home with someone able to continue his training and also give him some good outlets for his energy, being a young dog. He would be great at something like agility or cani-x where he can run and use his brain! Or just with someone who like to do long walks. Although saying that after he has had his walk/play he is happy to chill out on the sofa as you can see.

Please please don’t let his looks or colour put you off, he really is a super special chap, who so deserves a loving family of his own.
