Little is known about Denzil as he was found as a stray and taken to the pound. He has lots of scars around his face and neck, we fear that Denzil has been severely let down in the past and has gone through a lot. He is around 2 years old and is a large crossbreed.
When Denzil arrived at Staffie and Stray Rescue in Dorset, he was a young boy but so quiet and calm. He has now been with them 6 months and it is clear that he is a shy boy who likes his own space and prefers to get to know people in his own time. We will be requiring any potential furever homes to meet with Denzil several times prior to rehoming.
Denzil has a fair few scars on him around his head, neck & ears, including an old tear in one ear. We think he has had probably been hit a few times as he sometimes cowers if you raise your hand quickly, which is why we are looking for a quiet adult home for him so that life will be less overwhelming.
He can be sensitive to loud noises, but with time and patience he has become much more confident in his foster home
Although just a young boy, when he arrived, he seemed so much older than he is. Since being with us, his young spirit is returning.
Denzil is generally quite a lazy and sleepy boy, he’s a snorer too!
He prefers his own space and isn’t a particularly cuddly dog.
He does enjoy playing with toys and balls, he also loves his bed as it’s his safe place. He is a quick learner and very responsive to commands. He knows sit and is picking up others such as stay, leave, come etc. and he walks very well on the lead.
Although a work in progress due to not being taught as a puppy, he is pretty good in the house (toilet trained, not a chewer, not noisy). Advert contiues on website ...
