Freddie is a 3 yr old Collie cross who is looking for a quiet home in a quiet area due to his fear of loud noises and new people. He is a lovely boy who is brilliant with other dogs and also cats – we would like to find him a home with at least 1 other confident dog. Freddie is also fantastic around the house – he is housetrained, does not chew and happy to be left alone for 4-5 hrs at a time. He travels well in the car. Freddie needs an understanding home, ideally with previous experience of dogs with nervous, sensitive personalities. He is super affectionate and brilliant with his family, but is worried by new people coming into the house, so he uses his voice (which is loud!) to ‘scare away’ his percieved threat and if he’s really pushed, he may nip. He needs careful, managed introductions with people coming into the home – we will give full advice on this, but it is really just a case of letting a guest in first, sitting guest down, and then letting Fred in and allow him to approach in his own time. He also needs management around the front door if the super scary postman/delivery driver is there! Freddie is a very special young boy who will be the most amazing dog in the right home who understand his needs. Our behaviourist is on hand for advice at every step of the way with Freddie’s adopters (if needed of course!).
