Mikey is an 8-year-old male medium/large cross-breed.

Meet Mikey, this big loveable boy is looking for a new home unfortunately due to his owners health declining. Mikey’s owner adopted him around 3-4 years ago and at the time Mikey was quite a challenging dog.

Mikey’s owner has worked amazingly with him, gaining his trust, working on his manners with food and with people. He loves meeting new people and is a big softie at heart, he is a strong willed boy who does like to take charge, this he won’t take long to get to grips in a new home.

He does seem to take lead from males better than females, so would prefer a male home. Mikey is currently blind in one eye, he has a condition which means his eye is too small, this does not affect him. He is a very hair boy who is always malting, he is currently brushed twice a day but loves this!

He is a very loyal dog and loves to always be by your side keeping you company and making sure you are safe, even if he doesn’t understand personal space! He is a very playful boy and loves to play rough with his favourite people, he is very understanding of his strength and is always careful with the visiting child and children he meets on walks.

He is a very clever boy who loves to be obedient and learn new tricks, especially for treats! He enjoys when his owner plays the harmonica and even enjoys singing along.

Mikey can live with Dog savvy children 10+ following sensible introductions. He is great with the visiting children in his current home.

Mikey cannot live with other dogs, he is very reactive towards other dogs and will need a home in a quieter dog free area. Mikey was unfortunately attacked by another dog in the past, with this and his blindness in one eye, we do feel has contributed to his reactivity towards other dogs.

Mikey would prefer a cat free home. However he will ignore cats on the street and has previously lived with birds who he is great with.

Mikey accepts a collar, harness and lead and loves his walks. He is best walked on a chain collar with a strong lead. He loves to meet new people on walks. He can pull on the lead to begin with however will calm down once he has done his business.

Mikey is toilet trained and will sit at the door if he needs to go out. Mikey is not crate trained. Mikey can be left alone for long periods of time with no issues. Mikey has not been destructive within the home and sleeps well overnight.

He can be nervous on shorter journeys and in the back of the car however once he has arrived at his destination he will soon calm down.
