Shankly is an 8 year old male Patterdale Terrier. Handsome boy Shankly originally came into our care in 2016 due to the arrival of a new baby, however his family felt they had made a mistake and so we allowed them to take him back. Sadly Shankly has now found himself in our care once again but this time due to a change in his owner’s work hours.
Shankly is a sweet, sociable boy who is still very active and thoroughly enjoys walkies and playing with toys. He has mixed well with other dogs in the past but we are unsure how compatible he will be to live with them at this stage. He does not like cats. Shankly came to us from a busy family home with young children, however we are told that he is best suited to a home with older children and therefore we are looking for a home where any children (including visiting children) are over the age of 12.
Shankly is clean and non-destructive in the home and is okay to be left alone for a couple of hours. He has seen our vet and is in good health but does currently require ear drops. Overall Shankly is a fun, friendly little chap who will fit well into most homes and desperately deserves a second chance at happiness.
