Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre
A Male Cocker Spaniel who is age 1 year 3 months
Dovecotewell, by Glencaple
Dumfries and Galloway
Approx Age: 1 year, 3 months
Ziggy lived with children in his previous home aged from 4 to 12 years old. We have been told there was an incident involving young children while Ziggy was visiting them at their home. Due to this, we will not rehome Ziggy to a home with children or visiting children. Ziggy appears to be friendly towards other dogs but can be quite full on with smaller dogs. He has never lived with other pets before, so we are unsure of how he would be with cats. Ziggy is still a young boy and requires further training, he has been known to chew blankets and beds and is very strong on the lead. His recall is good unless he is distracted, we have been told he cannot be trusted around livestock when off lead. Ziggy is crate trained and travels in his crate in the car. He isn’t used to being left alone so would prefer a home where someone is home most of the time. Ziggy is very clever and knows basic commands, he is also house trained. In the correct home environment, we feel that Ziggy will make an excellent companion.
Ziggy was brought into the centre for rehoming because of an incident involving young children while visiting them at their home.
Ziggy needs a home with no children and no visiting children. He needs an active home with an owner who is willing to commit to further training. As he is very affectionate, he may prefer a home where he isn’t left for long periods of time.
If you'd like to help rehome Ziggy simply complete the Homefinder Questionnaire to get started.
