Description

26/3/2021 NO MORE ENQUIRES- as of 16:00 we will be taking no more enquires whilst we work through the ones we have already received. 

Paddy is around 6 months old and has had a very unsettled start in life, he is now looking for a home where he can stay forever. He arrived with us as he didn't get on with the cats in his previous home. We have since tested Paddy with cats and he was happy to share the same space but he will chase them. We would prefer a home without cats but wouldn't rule it out completely. 

Paddy could potentially live with another dog but this would depend on meetings here at Oak Tree. In his current foster home, Paddy has been around children and his foster carers say "he's more than happy to be around children and is very gentle and loving" Any potential owners must take into consideration that Paddy is still a puppy so will likely go through the chewing/mouthing stage. 

We are looking for a home with a secure garden for Paddy so he has somewhere safe to play off lead. His foster carers say he is coming on well with his house training but his new owners must be willing to carry this on.

Paddy can be nervous of loud unexpected noises so his new owners will need to socialise him and also start work on preparing him for firework season. Due to being transported long distances at a young age without any real training, Paddy finds car journeys very stressful so his new owner will need to carry on with the training so that hopefully he will learn to enjoy going in the car.

Lastly, Paddy's foster carers say "He is a remarkable little dog, he loves cuddles and affection and has plenty to give in return"


WE HAVE MORE DOGS IN NEED

On average, we have 400 animals come into our shelter every year. Please take a look at some of our dogs looking for loving homes and see if you can find a friend for life. Where appropriate, all of our animals are vaccinated, microchipped and neutered. We also give each animal a behavioural assessment to identify their needs and help you find your perfect companion.
