Woody is a 5-7 approx year old shar pei cross.
He is a big lad with a big heart full of love. Woody is an incredibly loving boy and loves a belly rub and a teddy bear cuddle. He is with us from the pound so we have no background information on him sadly which is why his age is an approximation. Woody is house trained and crate trained as well as being neutered and microchipped. He can be left by him self for upto 4 hours and is happy to chill in a large crate with a comfy bed to sleep in.
At the rescue he has achieved the nickname Spud as he is like a potato with legs. Woody needs to go on a diet and lose a few pounds to prevent any joint issues later on in life and increase his quality of life. At the moment he is rather unfit and gets worn out easily so would like someone who will build his exercise up slowly. We’re sure he will want to look majestic in his bikini this summer!
On lead Woody is rather laid back and pulls lightly until he’s tired out a bit however he can be very strong should he with to be. He will chase cats and squirrels should they be spotted so his new owner must be ready to hold his lead and have control. He bows some basic commands such as sit, down and paw but can learn Moreno with further training.
Woody is not dog friendly and is a bit nervous of them however with the right training and positive reinforcement this should be helped. Helping his emotions towards dogs eg, fear will help his behaviour towards them. In the rescue Woody aka Spud is a couch potato and is very chilled out. He could live in a house with children aged 4+ but must be the only dog and have no cats.
He is a very sweet and laid back boy who just needs some TLC and a diet to get him back in his prime.
.If you are interested in viewing a dog then please message or call to arrange a day to come along to the rescue. If you're not sure which dog you would like to see then just ask, tell us what you're looking for eg. If you have another dog, age of children (we do not have a minimum age), activity requirements (active, lazy), how long the dog will be left alone (we do ask that if it is anymore than 6-7 hours then someone must come in between to check on the dog and let them out and give them some company. Just let us know what your lifestyle is and we will tell you which dogs may be suited to you.
.After a meet up with Jan and the dog at the rescue and if you decide that you would like to adopt and Jan agrees then you will arrange a day for Jan to come round for a home check/ deliver the dog to you. You don't need to decide on the day and can of course have a think about it as it's not a decision to rush.
. If there are many people interested in a dog then it is NOT first come first served. We will meet as many people as possible and then choose which would be best for the dog so please do not be disheartened if this is the situation
.A donation of £150-£200 is required to cover the cost of neutering
. ongoing support is always provided if needed
. if at any time the dog cannot be kept it must be returned to the rescue
. All of our dogs are neutered and microchipped. Dogs under 14 months will need to be briefly returned to be neutered once they are old enough
