Nero is a handsome young dog, slightly bigger than a labrador in size (26kg) and with gorgeous brown eyes. He is responsive, intelligent and playful and shows great potential in further training, obedience or sports. He is a very affectionate and loving boy once he gets to know you. He can be left on his own for a few hours without problems and is clean in the house. In his first home he developed shyness around strange men and mild over-excitement/anxiety around younger children, which is why he is looking for a home without children.
Nero (was Angus) had been adopted for about a year and was then rehomed again but unfortunately neither home worked out. Nero struggles to cope with social households and loud noises so would prefer a quieter home, with no children or small furries and without too many visitors, allowing him ample time to settle in. With his experienced fosterer, he had been meeting dogs regularly on- and off-lead and getting on well with every dog he met. But he struggled with over-arousal and frustration on lead with his previous adopters, therefore Nero needs experienced adopters who have commitment to continue his training and gentle acclimatisation. He can be playful and boisterous so may be best homed with a calm but confident dog, or he could live as an only dog provided he receives enough calm activities and enrichment.
He likes nothing better than to be in the woods or countryside – ideally meeting other young lively dogs to play with. He is quite high-energy and an agile dog, so would really benefit from an active family who will involve him in dog sports such as canicross and bikejour. His whistle recall is excellent, especially in return for a tasty treat and he is so responsive and eager to please (view video below). He is a very intelligent boy, eager to learn and shows amazing promise in training. He could turn his mind and body to anything and is just waiting for someone to release his true potential.
Nero was originally rescued from the streets of Greece as a young puppy. His mother and siblings have all been happily homed in the UK and Nero would love to have a forever home to truly settle down in. Please consider giving this boy a home, he will be a loyal and loving friend.
