Little Striker has come into us from a very sad situation and full disclosure will be given to those interested in adopting him. He has now completed his assessment and is definitely ready to get out of kennels, start fresh in his new life & be settled in ready for Christmas!

Striker is a typical super happy and friendly puppy, he is full of fun, energy and enthusiasm! He absolutely loves people, he greets everyone with a waggy tail and can't wait to receive cuddles and attention from anyone willing to give it!

In the playpen he loves to zoom round and will come back to his name 90% of the time however we would recommend some recall training before letting him off in the big wide world as his attention span can sometimes waver if there is something more interesting about.

Striker is all about the toys, he will play with anything and everything, even better if it makes a noise! The only negative we have to say about him is that he will need some work with toys in his possession, there is no problems playing tuggy with him and no problems trading toys for other ones but we are currently working with taking a toy from him that he has in his possession on the floor. He is still young, super motivated to appease you and also loves his food so someone with a bit of know-how experience could continue this work to solve this.

We are looking for a home where he can go to training classes, he is so eager to please he just lacks the basic commands so just needs a helping paw to get up to scratch - as mentioned above, he is a 'foody' so armed with treats, his clever little mind should pick everything up like a sponge!  He has already nailed his leadwork as he walks quite nicely, just the odd occasion where his excitement gets the better of him does he need a reminder to walk to heel.

Striker is good with dogs, he has met lots since being here and his reaction is always the same... super pleased to see them and really wants to play. We do think he could live with another dog, one perhaps a bit older but still  likes to play!

Overall Striker is a wonderful happy playful pup who just needs to gain some weight and find a family to give him the training, cuddles and attention he deserves!
