the Month


Poor Fido has found himself back in kennels after bring returned to us, so is now looking and hoping for another chance at a happily every after!

Fido was returned after 2 weeks in the home due to his reaction to some dogs out and about walking. Unfortunately the owners decided not to go ahead with assistance from our behaviourist, so we cannot be sure of what the behaviour looked like.
Since coming back to us we have certainly put him through his paces and we can honestly say he has been a good boy, the only time he has reacted is when a dog barks at him first. Fido was impeccably behaved walking around our recent Fete here at the kennels, there were dogs everywhere and he coped with everything amazingly. Even in the busy atmosphere of people and dogs his tail did not stop wagging, he really impressed all the staff! 
Although Fido will never be happy enough to live with another dog we believe that with work he will become less bothered about dogs. As previously mentioned the only time Fido has barked at another dog was when the dog barked at him first, we have walked him around the fields with numerous other dogs with varying temperaments and he has not put a paw wrong.
On the lead he is generally a good boy walking by your side but his excitement and inquisitive nose sometimes gets the better of him but this is soon corrected. 
We have found that Fido is very keen for his food and not too happy about you lingering near him and his bowl when he's eating which may be due to the kennel environment but as we cannot be sure we would suggest him being the only dog with no young children in the home to interrupt his dinner.
In the playpen he loves to run round and have a sniff around as to who's been in there before him... he loves to chase a ball and will bring it back to you to throw again... well 90% of the time he will unless something more interesting takes his fancy! 

Despite all his areas for improvement Fido would make a superb pet, giving back treble of the work put in to him, he's a beautiful boy who deserves a new start with sympathetic but knowledgeable owners.

Not cat tested, no young children

If you think you can offer FIDO the home he so deserves, please contact the kennels on

Thank you!
