Calling all patient, caring, understanding, dog lovers – meet Sonny, a 3 year old brindle cross-breed boy. Sonny needs an extra special home with someone that is willing to spend time prior to adopting to get to know him and vica versa. On first meetings Sonny is very scared and nervous and very untrusting. It doesn`t take an awful lot to bring him round, but potential owners need to be aware that this process will be needed for every new person that meets him.
We advise that he should wear a muzzle in public and at the vets (air on the side of caution), and he be taken to training classes, to train and socialise with people and dogs as he does tend to get on well with other dogs but sometimes can bark in unknown situations. He is a very playful boy who worships the people he trusts and all he wants to do is love and please you. Here in kennels he is extremely stressed and so we have left him in a quiet area. A home with children over 16 years is advised.
He has previously lived with a cat but we’re not sure if he would be best suited in a cat free home or with a dog confident cat. He will be fine to be left alone for 1-2 hours but will ideally need a special home with someone available to spend time with him most of the day.
