Ideal Home

Button has come into us in sad circumstances along with another dog as their owner very sadly passed away but hopefully we can find him a new home very soon as he isn't enjoying his time in kennels - poor boy must be terribly confused.

Unfortunately due to his previous owners declining health Button hadn't ventured out of his home and garden for some time so when he first arrived he was pretty shut down, no sign of a tail wag, didn't really want to move from his bed and was evidently struggling with the change of losing his owner on top of finding himself in kennels but he has made great improvements since then!

As mentioned Button has come into us with another dog, we have split them as Button was very overbearing with the other dog for example he wouldn't allow him to walk freely instead glued himself to the other dogs side and cut him off when he didn't want him to go any further almost herding him, the other dog was also of poor health so we decided that it would be best for both dogs to be separated. Since the split Button has come into his own, rather then latching on to the other dog and ignoring everything around him including people, he is really coming out of his shell, interacting and becoming a very happy wiggly Labrador!

On the whole he does/can walk well though he can be very strong at times and will pull you especially if he wants to pee up something! We are working on this at the moment but further work will need to be continued in his new home. As he hasn't had many walks of late he is loving all the walks he can get here, so we are definitely looking for an active home where he can make up for lost time going on plenty of adventures!

One of Buttons favourite things is tennis balls, he gets super excited when you pick one up and loves to retrieve them for you, though sometimes he isn't the best at finding them especially in the long grass! He has been off lead in our playpen and fields where he was brilliantly behaved, not straying further then eyeshot of the person throwing the ball, happily fetching the balls and dropping them back at their feet.

Button is generally quite an obedient dog, he has a good knowledge of commands and is always looking to please his handler.

Ideally we are looking for a dog free home for Button, along with no children as he has no experience of them at all however we have information that he has previously lived with a cat whom he ignored but he hasn't formally been cat tested here so we wouldn't want to take the risk.
