Colin – 9 month old male Labrador Cross

Colin is a 9 month old Labrador cross. He is a very lovely dog who spent his early puppy years on a chain and was rescued thank goodness. When I met him I really fell in love with him I am told he is a Spanish Water Dog but they all seem to have curly coats – he looks to me like a Spaniel crossed with a Labrador but he does look like he a breed, will do some more research on this as he is quite unique looking.

Anyway Colin is the most gentle boy you could wish to meet, he has a lovely temperament a bit unsure and shy but you can tell a very kind soul – he was lovely with all the dogs he met and people. He just needs time to build his confidence – he has the makings of a fabulous dog with the right owners.

The right owners will have another confident dog for Colin to follow their lead, be experienced with shy dogs and have lots of patience and love to give to him to help him become the dog he should be – he will be a pleasure to watch him come out of his shell such a lovely boy – I took some videos of him below.

He loves the water as they have a dog pool in his kennels but was not quite brave enough to go into the swimming pool.
