BREED: Poodle mix
AGE: 6 years

GOOD WITH CATS: no
MORE INFORMATION: Mushu is a typical Poodle mix, plenty of energy, very intelligent and very sweet natured. He loves walks and being out and about but also lying on the sofa or sleeping under the desk in the office, in the home he is very calm if he is familiar with the people in the home, he is uncomfortable with visitors to the home if they enter his space and barks when the door bell rings etc.
IDEAL HOME: Mushu would be best suited to a relatively active adult only home. He will need to be groomed regularly and stimulated mentally and physically so he doesnt feel the need to make his own entertainment! He suffers from mild separation anxiety, but can be left for up to 4 hours if set up over a course of time.
FEEDING: he loves his food and at the kennels is fed a raw diet of natural instinct
HEALTH: he has been healthy during his stay at the kennels
LOCATION: At Glendee Rescue,Hertfordshire
TRAINING REQUIREMENTS: Mushu has a tendency when he is frustrated on a lead to redirect and chew the lead. This can be because of large traffic or a dog he is trying to get to. He will need patience and training to modify his behaviour. He is a super intelligent dog and loves food and toys and he is making progress with us but this would need to be further worked on at home
This is our current assessment, the assessments are on-going as always, and although we temperament test our dogs in many situations, we can not know how they be when they arrive in your home, support is given as always be given by the trainer you are matched to.
