I’ve been lucky enough to live in a nice, happy family home with people who have taught me lots of great things, including sit, lie down and paw. Unfortunately after a while they were struggling to find the time to spend with me and I was too strong for them to take me for regular walks, so I didn’t get out much. This has left me a little under socialised, especially with men but since being here I have been enjoying lots of lovely walks which I’ve very much enjoyed. Running about in the paddock is just the best.
I’m always full of energy and I find it hard to settle down and relax. I often get over excited and sometimes this means I can be nippy, but I’m a very clever boy and I know that with the right positive training and calm owner I will be able to learn how to control this.
I’m a sweet boy but I don’t always know my own strength, which is why I’m not suitable to live with young children, I’d always end up accidentally knocking them over. When I’m calm and settled I do enjoy gentle fuss, but sometimes this can over excite me too.
I really love playing with toys, and I’m learning to go and get a toy when I get too over excited as this helps to calm me down. It’s best to leave me alone when I’m eating as I’m not happy sharing my food and I don’t want to have to tell you to go away.
What kind of home am I looking for?
Potential adopters will need bags of experience with high energy dogs. I need lots of training and positive experiences as I can get upset when I see men, they frighten me. I will need lots of guidance and training in positive ways to help me settle in to a new home and be the best boy.
I will need lots of exercise in my new home, around two hours a day would be perfect. I’d be a brilliant running partner (but you’d need to train me first).
