Pep or Peperreeno is a 3 1/2 year old black and white Sringer cross Collie, who has come into foster due to guarding and biting issues. Along with his previous owners moving into a flat. In his previous home Pep would guard sofas or things on the floor and has bitten in the process on some occasions. Since coming into foster there has been no guarding of food or sofas or beds, maybe a bit stubborn to come ‘off’. With only half hearted attempts of guarding items on the floor, amounting to nothing and needing only a simple treat.
Pep doesn’t exhibit huge signs in these situations but they are there and you must be able to read these subtle signs to avoid bringing out his problems. He is fantastic with children but unfortunately due to his guarding they must be older or none. Pep loves to run especially if another dog is running with him and can spend all his walk running if his friend Toby is there. However Pep works on a pack order basis and if you are below Pep in the pack he will be aggressive with lunging teeth and touch with nips. He needs a very dominate dog or no dogs unfortunately.
This also applies to people, in that Pep needs to know he is not top dog to avoid his guarding and biting issues. He has lived with cats but will chase. Pep loves attention especially his back or belly being being scratched, he however will still puppy mouth play which he is learning not to.. Pep is also overweight and on a very strict diet which for his benefit needs to be continued in his new home.He needs an experienced active home. Pep is in foster in Malton Yorkshire, and he is neutered, chipped, vaccinated, wormed and flead.
