Bilbo is a 7 year old male Labrador cross Scottish Terrier. He is a stunning and rather unique looking lad and we are looking for a specific home for him. He came in as an unclaimed stray but we do have a history for him which we will be happy to discuss at length with potential owners.
Bilbo loves people, he does have a few quirks, we suspect due to his past life but he is a friendly social dog. He can be a little reserved initially but once he has bonded he enjoys human company. Due to limited history we will be looking for an adult home for Bilbo. It’s a definite no for any other animals for Bilbo.
Bilbo must be the only dog in the home, this is a definite requirement for his re homing. Bilbo has no ongoing health issues, he does have a small fatty lump which has been investigated and is no cause for treatment or concern. He has settled well into the home and is clean and not destructive and enjoys company on his terms, like many terriers he is quite independent and happy to settle himself whilst his fosters are busy. He loves a game of ball in the garden and will play for as long as you have time.
Bilbo is walked in a muzzle due to an incident with anther dog that was off lead. Prior to this incident Bilbo had not had issue with other dogs whilst in our care. As a result of this incident we now ensure that Bilbo is wearing a muzzle when out on a walk and is kept on lead, he is used to the muzzle and is able to pant and drink and take treats and has adapted really well to wearing it. We will discuss this incident at length with any suitable applicants. Please do not let this deter you from adopting a dog who is a really great lad.
A home where Bilbo’s needs are met with owners who understand Terriers and their traits is a priority. In the right, understand home , this lad will flourish. Please look past the need for a muzzle and see the potential this lad has and the fact he deserves owners who will ensure his life is full and fun going forward.
Bilbo has been neutered, vaccinated and micro chipped and has also had a full dental. He is up to date with flea and worming treatment.
Potential adopters will be expected to travel to Brixton to meet Bilbo.
