Ted is a 6 year old male Bichon Frise cross Terrier. He came to us from the wardens after he was found in a terribly sorry state. He’s had a good groom & vet check and is feeling much better. He originally could not even mobilise without his matts pulling. He is a sweet boy who enjoys fuss on his terms but isn’t a fan of being picked up especially without warning.
Ted does have some reactive tendencies on walks so we are looking for an experienced home with people who can manage this properly. We are starting to muzzle train him so that these risks can be reduced significantly. Ted does now have a bite history after an incident of redirected aggression towards another dog when the other dog was allowed to directly approach him by its handler.
It is a shame a mistake by a stranger led to this but these incidents can happen as sadly not everyone has their dogs under control and is respectful towards other dogs in public. Given his past & some of his behavioural issues, Ted cannot live with other dogs or children but IS ok with cats in his foster. We are happy to explain Ted’s needs in further detail with any suitable potential adopters.
Ted will benefit from a dog experienced home who is capable of giving him very clear boundaries and structure in a kind way as Ted will push boundaries. A home with a big secure garden will be ideal and someone committed to using a muzzle when out and about.
Ted is neutered, vaccinated, chipped & is up to date with flea & worm treatment. He is in foster in Blackpool but meet & greets can be arranged in Melling also should a suitable applicant request this. Ted does still need a dental which we will cover when he is settled in his new home.
