Duffy is a 4 year old English Springer Spaniel and was the sad and scared boy that came to us severely overweight never having been walked. Well no more this is a different dog! Duffy is a lovely tempered dog who quite simply is a cuddle monster who has no idea of personal space! After not been walked for 4 years it’s understandable that he loves his walks. And I mean he loves them. He currently wears a figure of 8 lead and will still pull at the start but he does settle quickly. He is still learning how to act when outside on his walks but is learning quickly. His recall is about 6/10.
Again this is mainly because he is so engrossed in sniffing and running round like a loony his hearing becomes selective! But he is getting better! Duffy will need someone who has the patience to continue his training and somewhere enclosed at the start to continue to build on his confidence and trust with recall and with you and he will truly be a remarkable boy. No cats or small furries. Not tested with children so maybe dog savvy teens as again he is still learning to be a dog again. Will be okay with another dog but may struggle in a busy household as he can get stressed.
Duffy also barks when first left so ideally someone who is around most of the time but can be left for short periods of time.He really is a lovely boy who really does deserve all the happiness in the world.
He is in foster in West Sussex and he is neutered, chipped, vaccinated, wormed and flead. Adoption subject to meet and greet, homecheck and a minimum donation of £200.
