Aslan is a very handsome tri-pawed Labrador cross. He has had a difficult start to life and has learned to survive on his own wits. This means that he has developed some traits that he will need help in leaving behind with his past. So many endearing qualities about Aslan. He loves being out in garden and will happily spend hours just laying around but door has to be open so he knows you are about.
While changing bedding, hanging out washing or shaking clothes he loves to help grabbing a corner and playing tug. He likes playing fetch with his toys and sometimes will fetch it back to you for you to play tug or he will take it back to his bed preferring to just watch you running around like an idiot. Even though he likes to know you are there he does prefer to sleep at a distance, at night he sleeps in living room and sleeps all night, in the morning he is quite lazy. He loves a belly rub also he loves having the stump where his leg is missing rubbed. He will sit on command (normally waiting for a treat). He has been to the Dog groomers and was a perfect gentleman.
Aslan loves humans and men in particular. He is fine with children and seems to enjoy the attention of all shapes and sizes. Aslan is fostered as an only dog but seems indifferent to other dogs when out for his walks. He does get annoyed by small happy dogs, but would like to be an only dog in his new home. No cats. Aslan loves to bark at the Ice-cream van. Food is an issue with him. He gulps his food, even bought an anti gulp bowl which he has learned to tip over. This is probably a result of his life on the street. He has slowed down a little since first arriving. At first hand feeding him was risky but he does take food out of hand a little slower now. Aslan is happy to be left but things must be stored out of reach. Aslan will empty bins looking for food. He will take children’s toys to chew if left laying around and he will reach up onto kitchen units and pull down anything he can reach.
Aslan does not like getting in the car but, once in, travels well although he pants a lot. He is good on a lead when he wants to walk but can be really stubborn and refuse to move even though no aggression is shown. Aslan deserves company and would be perfect for someone that is home a lot, will need a large garden as he loves being outdoors. As he only has 3 legs he does like to rest a lot. Even though he enjoys his walks he doesn’t need to walk far as long as he has space at home and in garden.
Aslan is neutered, chipped, vaccinated and up to date with his flea and worming treatment. Potential adopters will be expected to travel to meet him in his foster home in Bridgend South Wales.
