Patch is an 11 month old male English Cocker Spaniel. We would recommend an adult only home, he was showing resource guarding tendencies in his previous home with a child. No visiting children either please, which means grandchildren unless they are adults. He has been good with all dogs during his assessments but due to his resource guarding we would recommend he lives an only dog to reduce any potential difficulties in a home with another dog. Has not yet been cat tested. He was relinquished for resource guarding, but we feel it is relatively minimal and would be comfortably managed with sensible handling and continuing to make him feel comfortable and confident that people aren’t going to take things from him. He is very strong on lead, this is going to be a long process and he wouldn’t suit anyone frail for that reason.
Patch would best suit an active household that can stimulate him mentally and physically. He loves toys and training. We feed him a raw Diet, Barking Heads or Natures Diet at Glendee. He has been healthy during his stay with us.
