Fergal is a 5 year old male Labrador Cross. Happy chappy Fergal has passed his second assessment in foster and is now ready for his forever home! Fergal is extremely loving and loves nothing more than belly rubs and cuddles on the sofa with his foster family.
He also loves walks on the common and playing with his foster sister Matty, who also allows him to share her squeaky toys. He is good overnight and can be left for a period of time throughout the day. Fergal is housetrained.
In the beginning he was lead reactive to certain breeds of dog, which pound dogs often are, but is currently doing really well with lots of training with a behaviourist, thanks to his fab foster parents. He can be nervous when he first meets other dogs but this is getting better all the time.
Fergal will make a really wonderful addition to any family. He is very good around children but as he hasn’t lived with them, regrettably we cannot rehome to a family with young children. He can still be a little nervous when meeting new people so a high activity household with lots of people in and out wouldn’t be suitable.
He can air-snap when nervous but is easily distracted with a toy. He does have a high prey drive and isn’t keen on cats, but adores his foster sister so a resident dog would be ideal. He has brilliant recall.
Whoever is lucky enough to adopt Fergal will need to continue the training that his foster family have put in place to ensure he feels safe and secure.
Fergal does have Leishmaniasis and is currently on an inexpensive daily medicine. He has been treated for the condition but will need monitoring – we can advise on this so please do just ask.
