Dougie has been with us for a while now whilst we get more of a hang on his behaviour......

What can we say about our Douglas? Well he is an engima for sure and the other thing we can say about our Douglas is he is definately NOT bright and this is why he sometimes portrays himself in a bad light because his one engaged braincell goes into overdrive!

That said we ADORE him and the teenagers at the kennels walk him each week and are very firm with him and he is very responsive to them so read on and do not be put off him straight away............

Dougie makes us laugh, Dougie definately makes us smile and Dougie himself NEVER ever stops smiling! This boy is fantastic with people and so loving and sweet. At the kennels he is great with some of the dogs! Usually the bossy bitches who wont take his sillyness but with some he can be a bit snappy and shouty. We feel Dougie would love a home as an only dog with someone around all or most of the time especially to begin with, experienced and willing to put some time and work in with what is as said a not very bright but wonderful character. With time and patience Dougie is going to make a fabulous dog for someone.

On walks he walks beautifully but will have a bounce lunge and shout if dogs run at gates and we feel typically with the breed he will do the same on walks if he sees running cats or offlead dogs. Dougie would definately benefit from training classes.

Dougie is NOT cat friendly

Dougie travels well in the car settling to sleep and although in kennels works hard to keep his immediate area very clean!

This lad is defiantely one of the kennel walkers firm favourites!

I really hope that someone reads Dougies thread and takes it in the honest vein it is written... ie a bit of a goofball and would be better as an only dog or with a VERY bossy bitch and see's beyond his not so brightness and gives this wonderful lad the chance he deserves!

Dougie is vaccinated, kc vaccinated, de flead, de wormed, microchipped and castrated
