Hunky Hooch – 9 year old male Dogue de Bordeaux

Hunky Hooch is a 9 year old male Dogue de Bordeaux. He is in a foster home in Hampton Hill, Middlesex, waiting for someone to offer him a permanent, loving home. Although it’s believed Hooch had lived with another dog previously, he is reactive and protective of his owner and territory, so he would prefer to be the only pet in the home.

Hooch chases small furry and feathered things! Hooch doesn’t like lots of noise, so older children and a calm home would be ideal. Hooch now walks well on the lead and rarely pulls unless he sees another dog. He has no recall at the moment, but this is being worked on with help from a behaviourist. Currently, he is walked once a day for between 40 – 60 minutes.

He loves playing with his squeaky toys and human company. He’s an affectionate lad and thoroughly enjoys his tummy rubs. He also likes his walks and sniffing/exploring. He does not like other dogs approaching, especially off-lead. Hooch has reacted to the sound of roller blades on the pavement.

Hooch needs a calm, loving home with people who have plenty of time for him. He would love a big garden to patrol and would suit a quieter, semi-rural location.

He is currently being walked on-lead and he’s happy exercising this way. He plays with balls in the garden and likes a tug-of-war game.

Hooch has been neutered whilst in foster care and he is chipped. He has a few lumps and bumps, but the vet has checked these and said they are harmless cysts.
