Beautiful Jaffa is a 5 year old male Cross-Breed. He is a medium sized boy who was taken out of a public shelter where he had spent approximately 18 months/2 years. He was very stressed in the shelter and would circle his 6ft x 6ft pen. He was much more relaxed in foster care in Romania, getting along well with his carers. He arrived in the UK in early April and has settled very well and is becoming calmer and growing in confidence daily.
He has been clean in the home from the day he arrived. Settles well overnight and is quiet. Away from home he walks very well on the lead but is quite cautious in new places, with strangers and new dogs. He spends a lot of time sniffing and observing what is going on around him. To help him adjust to life in the UK we are sticking to a routine and walking in the same areas to help him build confidence away from home.
The kind of home we are looking for is one with people that are experienced with rescue dogs and willing to take things slowly. We do not think Jaffa is suitable to live with other dogs or cats due to his tendency to guard food from other animals. With people there has been no guarding issues but we would not recommend a home with small children.
Jaffa is a loving, friendly boy once he has got to know you. He is intelligent and athletic and we think in time he would benefit and enjoy fun training like agility/hoopers etc. This lovely boy has so much to give to the right people and he has potential to be a delightful companion.
Preference will be given to people living in the North Yorkshire area as ideally visiting to get to know him a little would be beneficial.
Jaffa is vaccinated, neutered and microchipped with UK registration. Full rescue back up. Homecheck and adoption donation of £350.00 apply
