A little bit about me

My life has been turned upside-down after the sad passing of my favourite human. It’s taken me a little time to adjust to my new surroundings as this is all new to me.

I’m going to be up front and honest with you as I feel this is the right thing to do. I have some issues and this means that I am looking for a very specific kind of person, or people, who can help me. I am often uncomfortable with formal handling which means I don’t like being examined by the vet and I’m not comfortable wearing a harness so I may growl if you touch me in a place that I don’t like. Putting that aside I am quite an affectionate little chap and I will rub myself against people I know to get fuss and attention. I’m also a very playful boy and I think toys are just the most amazing things in existence but because of this I won’t let you take them off me. Definitely not! The same goes for really delicious food items. I can be quite unfriendly if I’m challenged for either of these so I’m looking for caregivers who have dealt with resource guarding in the past and are able to help me in a positive way.

I enjoy getting out for a walk, I prefer to walk in quiet places as I don’t like other dogs, when I see one I will shout at them to make them go away. I think the moors would be a great place for us to spend some quality time together without interruptions.

I’ve got a lot of potential and I know in the right hands I will flourish, learn some new things, go on lots of exciting adventures and leave some of my insecurities behind me. It may take time and it will definitely take a lot of patience and training but if you have had a dog like me in the past then I would be thrilled if you could fill out an application form and seek to find out more about me.
