Dougall is a very friendly and excitable dog. He is still only young so needs to learn some basic manners. When visitors come to the house he usually rolls onto his back to get a belly rub. He may jump up at children and accidentally knock over smaller children due to his weight and size. He can occasionally be a little wary of some men, and has occasionally peed when meeting them. He is however fully housetrained. Dougall enjoys going to the vets as he gets lots of attention. Dougall has never bitten before however he is very mouthy. He is quite strong with it and he needs to learn that this is not acceptable. Dougall is happy to play with his friends that he already knows, however he can be a little rough. He doesn’t mean any harm he just forgets his size. With dogs that he does not know he will be cautious. If the strange dog wants to play then he will happily interact with the dog, or if the other dog growls at him he will run away from them. Dougall is looking to be the only dog in the home. He is happy to be left for short periods of a time, in his current home he is very rarely left but he is used to chilling out in his pen when they do leave him. As he has not had free run of a room when left his current owner is unsure if he would be destructive. As he is still young he possibly may still chew items, however this would just need further training. Dougall loves going in the car especially when he knows he is going for a fun walk. Dougall usually walks well when walking on his lead unless he sees other dogs then he may pull to get over to say hello them. His recall will need further training as he is not always consistent with it, mostly when there are other dogs around his recall is not great. Dougall is such a happy chap and loves nothing more than having all the attention on him, especially if it includes a belly rub. He loves to play games in the house and will do anything for treats. Dougall is very active and enjoys going for long walks, especially to places where he can be off lead for a good run around. He is looking for a nice active home where he can continue his daily walks. As he is used to having company during the day he would like to spend time with a human companion for the majority of the day. Dougall is very strong willed which is typical of both breeds. He must attend training classes as he does need further training on his recall and his mouthing. His owner must have owned and has experience with Bullbreeds or Staffies. Have you got a Dougall shaped hole missing in your life? If so he may be the one for you! As Dougall is not neutered, the Society will pay for this to be done at the local vet once the dog is settled (if you live in the Edinburgh/Lothian area we ask if this can be done at ICR Veterinary Surgeons, Loanhead). This is part of the Society’s re-homing policy and promotes responsible dog ownership. If you are interested in Dougall please go to our website www.dogaidsociety.com and click onto Dougall's page.
