A Male Black Patterdale cross who is age 1 year
Dovecotewell, by Glencaple
Dumfries and Galloway
Approx Age: 1 year
Rico is a bouncy, friendly and affectionate boy who loves attention and is very toy focused. He is only 13 months so is still very young and needs lots of exercise. He has lived with children in the past, however they were a little too rough with him, he now lacks confidence around children and would be better suited to a home without. Rico seems happy with other dogs and in his previous home he was learning to live with a cat but would still push boundaries. This playful pup can be destructive when left alone for too long, he has been used to a crate but doesn’t always settle. He will need help with house training and help to better his recall. He is fine with getting bathed, going to the vets and travels well in the car.
He was originally brought into the shelter back In August, Rico was adopted for a few months and is now back. The new owners felt he may be better suited to a family without children as he has been known to snap a few times.
Rico needs an active home, preferably without young children. He is looking for an owner who understands he will need help with further training, socialising and getting settled in a new home.
If you'd like to help rehome Rico simply complete the Homefinder Questionnaire to get started.
