Bobby is a tricolour male, who is estimated to be around ten years old. Bobby is looking for a new home as his owners are moving to accommodation where he is not allowed. He is vaccinated, neutered and microchipped.
Bobby likes to go for a walk wearing his harness. While he can pull on the lead, he is well trained and walks to heel. He has not been walked off lead, but has the use of a long line to give him a sense of freedom. Bobby is happy to travel on the back seat of the car, and enjoys days out. Bobby is not usually aggressive, but he values food highly, and if he’s going to fall out with anyone, it will be because he thinks his food is going to be taken from him. Having said that, he is a different creature at his doggy day care, and joining the pack mentality there stops food from being a worry. He is a good judge of character when it comes to other dogs, and quickly knows whether they will want to say hello to him or be left alone.
At home, Bobby is house trained and crate trained, although he has not used a crate since he was a youngster. Bobby has not spent a lot of time on his own, so if he needed to spend time without his family, this would have to be built up slowly with him. Bobby’s current garden is an enclosed flat roof, so he will need introducing to a very secure garden. He is not destructive of household items. If he steals an item, he will return it unless it is food.
Bobby has never lived with a cat, so would need a cat free home. He has never lived with children, and due to his obsession with food, we would recommend that his new home is one with adults only, or adults with older children who have quick reflexes and could keep him away from their food. Bobby is a very loyal hound, who hates being apart from his people, and would like to continue this closeness with his new owners. His favourite toys are anything which squeaks, and tennis balls, which excite him so much that he’s likely to go for zoomies when he sees them. He would need a high fibre diet as he can suffer with his glands, but nothing you can feed him will ever top a good sausage!
