Our special appeal is for the dog that most people would not give a second glance to. Most people when looking for a new companion are looking for a Spaniel, Labrador, little dog or Collie type. This appeal is for the dogs that would normally have to wait many months for new homes because of how they look. These dogs all have huge potential and lots of love to give, they just need that special person to look beyond and see the wonderful dog they really are.
Ned is a small male Crossbreed. He came into our care via the pound. Ned is a good all-rounder dog. Ned is in a foster home, below is what his foster mum has to say about Ned. Ned is good with other dogs and can live with older children.
Update: From Ned's foster mum.
I had met Ned at the rescue before fostering him and always found him a really charming little dog. So when the opportunity arose that we were able to foster him we jumped at the chance. Ned has the sweetest nature and on our journey home that very first day he sat calmly in the car taking everything in his stride, no crying, no fuss. On our arrival home he investigated the garden and house and met our own dogs, again taking it all in his stride no fuss. Ned is good with other dogs and has mixed in with my own without any issues of both sexes, big and little. He will have a play and run around with them and his favourite playmate is a Staffie cross female who adores playing and will try to get Ned to play at any chance, she paws him and nudges him and if he is tired and not wanting a game he will simply walk away and ignore her advances.
Ned is a good eater and likes his food, he would be great at reward based training.
As with the first day Ned travels well, he sometimes travels in a crate or in a seat belt and is quite content with either. He loves his walks and although pulls on the lead at first does settle down and is not difficult on the lead.
In the home we have found him a really easy boy to have around, he has a calm nature and likes to snooze, he can be alittle timid of some things like the hoover which is a big rather nasty monster in Ned's eyes. The first night he came home he slept on the landing on his bed, some dogs will have a cry and can have a rather disturbed first night in a new environment but Ned settled down and was quiet all night and has been since.
He enjoys a fuss but is not over the top, he is gentle and greets people well. Ned has not met cats while with me, so cannot say how he would be.
he is a crossbreed and looking at him I would suggest he has some Staffordshire Bull terrier in the mix he certainly has the fab nature of the breed, also maybe some Bassett hound, he has little legs and a rather long body and is just the cutest little lad.
Ned would suit most homes and is a smashing companion.
