NAME: PADDY (Paddington)
BREED: Terrier Cross
CHILDREN: We would recommend an adult only home, with no visiting children.
OTHER DOGS: He has been good with female dogs during assessments but we would recommend he lives as an only dog, as he is reactive to SOME dogs on walks.
CATS: Has not yet been cat tested.
FEEDING: We feed him a raw diet, which he loves.
HEALTH: He has been healthy during his stay with us.
MORE INFORMATION: Paddy is an active little terrier. He loves to be out and about and loves his food. He loves being fussed WHEN he is trusting and comfortable of his human; he does not like being touched by people unknown to him, and he is especially untrusting of men.
IDEAL HOME: Paddy would best suit an adult only home as he can be cautious being handled initially by people he doesn’t know. He is reactive to males on walks.
TRAINING REQUIREMENTS: Paddy’s main issues are being handled in certain circumstances - for example - having his harness taken off and being groomed. He would need to build a relationship with his new owners before leaving and they need to be patient and understanding of his concerns. Trust is really important to Paddy and he needs very gentle handling.
LOCATION: At Glendee Rescue, Hertfordshire.
