Plato is a tricolour male, born on 11th September 2009. He is looking for a new home as his owners are finding it difficult to give him the time and attention he needs. Plato is vaccinated and microchipped.
Plato is walked on a harness with a retractable lead. He walks very nicely for everyone who takes him out on a walk, but has not been let off lead as he always seems to find something interesting to wander off and investigate. Plato is happy to travel in the car. He has never shown aggression to other dogs or people.
At home, Plato is house trained but has not used a crate since he was a puppy. He was previously happy to spend a lot of the day on his own, but as he has got older, he now finds this quite worrying, and is showing severe signs of separation anxiety by becoming vocal, and would prefer to be part of a home where he’ll have plenty of company. He is not destructive and has never tried to escape from his secure garden. While he doesn’t steal, he may help himself to food which is left unattended.
Plato has never lived with cats, so would prefer a cat free home. He has lived with children, so dog-experienced older children could be part of his new home; however, particular attention should be paid to Plato when there is food around, as it might go missing from small hands! Plato adores his people, and enjoys spending his evenings sprawled across his family on the sofa. His idea of good fun is being chased, or pulling the stuffing out of dog toys, although he views noisy washing machines with a degree of suspicion.
