Diggs (Rehomed 20 Nov 16)

This handsome boy is Diggs.  Diggs is looking for a new home as his owners are now having to work longer hours and aren't able to give him the time and the daily walks he needs.

Diggs has just moved to a foster home so our experienced fosterers can assess him and get to know him better.  He is used to living in a family home with children of 2 and 4 years old.  He is in date for his vaccinations, microchipped Initial resports are that he's like a bouncy puppy, and has been very good with their young grandchild. 

He is not good with cats.

Diggs is a big boy but walks very well on the lead.

Update on 19 Oct 16 from foster family:

He has settled in here really nicely and, apart from being a little restless his first day (only to be expected), has shown no signs of stress and, at times, is positively ‘chilled’. He’s brilliant with our graddaughter. I asked her “How do you feel about Diggs?”, her reply “Good. He’s a big teddy bear”.

He loves to play, both with his toys and us, and thoroughly enjoys his walks.
We took him for a walk in the park on an extending lead, and popped into the tennis courts so he could have some ‘off-lead’ time. He was so well behaved that we decided to see how he would react outside the courts (I don’t usually attempt off lead walks until a dog has been with us 2-3 weeks). I shouldn’t have worried, he was brilliant – responding well to any commands given and not attempting to run away.

He did get very upset on Sunday evening when my husband went out. He sat by the front door whining, and it took quite a bit of distraction to get him to calm down. Each time he goes out Diggs cries and whines, but, this is now lessening. My husband is in and out such a lot this week that I think he’s becoming desensitized to it.

Regarding dogs. We have walked him on lead and off and found that he doesn’t make a b-line to go for other dogs. If another dog has a go at him (verbally), then he’ll bark back at it – which is fair enough. We have been cautious when he’s been around little dogs, and he does want to sniff them, but he hasn’t been aggressive towards them. When we were leaving Pets At Home we, literally, walked straight into a little dog, (I don’t know the breed), and, apart from sniffing, he didn’t do anything. I’ll monitor him over the coming weeks and let you know how he’s doing.

 

If you think you could offer Diggs a forever home, please fill in an application form.
