Paddy is a 2 year old male English Cocker Spaniel cross Poodle. You may remember Paddy who came in with Morag as the pair of English Cocker Spaniel cross Poodles not long had a litter. Well as is often the case the dogs used and abused for money and greed often turn out to be the sweetest dogs and Paddy is no different. Although chipped as a English Cocker Spaniel cross Poodle he is more Springer size and foster Mum Rachel calls him her hairy springer which is a perfect description. Here is his foster write up. Paddy is a lovely doggy who just needs an experienced dog owner who can work on a few small issues. Paddy eats well, behaves impeccably in the house and knows the commands sit, paw & get down. He loves his cuddles and is a 19kg lap dog! He has been left 2 hours with no issues and I think could be left up to 4.
Paddy definitely enjoys being an only dog, and really likes all the attention to be on him. Paddy sleeps on the floor beside the bed, but is not disruptive, just likes to be aware you’re in the room. Paddy is a great house protector and will bark when the door goes, or any loud noise that he interprets as a threat. Paddy growls and whines a lot, but it’s not aggressive he is just chatting and expressing himself.
He loves his walks and will go for as long as you like. He pulls like a train, but a halti helps a lot. Unfortunately (although very slowly improving) he has no recall and goes completely deaf on his walks. When he sees another dog he gets very excited and lunges forward and often gives a couple of barks. This is all show and all he wants to do is have a sniff and say hello.
In the house he likes chilling on the sofa, but still puppy mouths a little. Sometimes he likes a seat in the garden – doesn’t matter if it’s pouring! And refuses to come inside, unless you have a treat! Paddy is dog and cat friendly. He needs a home with no children please as we have no child history on him.
Paddy is 2 years old and he is neutered, chipped, vaccinated, wormed and flead and is in foster in Aberdeen. Adoption subject to meet and greet, homecheck and adoption donation of £200. Applications via forms section of website please.
