Borbolya (Barberry) is a 1 year old, medium size, neutered male Cross-Breed (weight: 16 kg, shoulder height: 50 cm). We took him over from another rescue organisation that found him in the streets in August. They had no rescue space available and he’d already spent over 2 weeks near a busy auto way in direct danger of being hit by a car.
Borbolya is a lovely young boy who has adapted really well to his new environment and lives with a pack of dogs without issues. He is quite an active boy who likes running around and loves to play. He loves his ball more than anything else and also retrieves it nicely. He likes jumping up which he will need to be trained out of. He is friendly with dogs and people, a cuddly boy who could be a wonderful addition to an active family.
Although we have no background information on him, it almost looks as if he may have had a family at one point as he seems to be familiar with the lead. He also travels nicely in the car and is well behaved at the vets. He currently lives in an outdoor kennel and his new family needs to be prepared to toilet train him if needed. He is currently not taken on regular walks and he will need to be trained to walk nicely on and off the lead.
Borbolya would be best suited for a family without children where he is not left alone for long periods of time and there is time for his training. He needs an active family who take him on nice walks, adventurous holidays, include him in their activities and he can be part of family life. He could live with another friendly, playful dog, but he would as well be perfectly content living with his humans to care for him only. He’s not been tested with cats and hence will not be rehomed in a household with cats.
As all rescue dogs, he will need time, patience, love and commitment from his adopting family to become a happy, well balanced dog. Experience with rescue dogs is strongly preferred.
Borbolya is currently in Hungary and can travel to the UK as soon as the right family is found for him. He comes neutered, fully vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed, flea and tick treated, with an EU passport and DEFRA approved paperwork.
