Description

* 21/09/2021 WE HAVE HAD A FEW POTENTIAL ADOPTERS FOR SMUDGE SO FOR NOW WE ARE NOT TAKING ANY NEW ENQUIRIES FOR HIM. *

Smudge is a 5 year old terrier X.  He came in with another dog but they have recently been spending some time apart in separate foster homes. They have done so well that we are looking now for homes apart.

Smudge's super foster home is giving us regular feedback so we can find his perfect home. They tell us: Smudge is such a lovely fella, very affectionate loving easy dog, he is perfectly house trained, travels well in the car, is calm, loves nothing more than a cuddle up on the sofa (or in your bed). He is great with the kids, and loves chasing a ball. We are working on the one issue, which is that he is still not keen on some dogs and will bark and pull on the lead towards them; he is getting better but it still needs working on.

Smudge is very keen to play games so may be a great candidate for an owner who would like to do agility or a similar activity. He definitely needs an owner who enjoys training a dog using positive and reward based methods.

Due to the fact Smudge can get quite excitable on lead when he sees other dogs, which leads to him to barking, we prefer a home where he can be walked in quieter areas. 

HOMING REQUIREMENTS

  • Adult home or with children aged 12+
  • Owner willing to train Smudge using positive methods
  • Home without cats
  • Active home with a garden, left maximum 2 hours
  • Semi rural or quiet location so that he can build up dog socialisation slowly

Please email in the first instance to: smallanimalteam@oaktreeanimals.org.uk Tell us a a bit about yourself and why you think Smudge will be your perfect companion. Please include your full name, address and contact numbers. 


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.
