Sadly Phoenix was clearly very poorly socialised as a young puppy so due to his subsequent behaviour issues was relinquished into rescue a few moths ago.
Phoenix has come a long way with his training since being in our care. He now walks well on a lead and harness and no longer pulls like a steam train!
Phoenix is still very reactive to other dogs and we certainly would not risk him around cats or any other smaller animals.
He does now sit for his dinner and treats and he has learned not to knock the staff who are feeding him over, in order to get to his bowl of food. We are feeding him in a slow feeder due to him guzzling up his dinner too quickly.
In the right and dog experienced home, Phoenix will no doubt become a lovely companion. He needs someone with time, patience and understanding, who is prepared to continue his socialisation and training. He does get bored very easily so would certainly benefit from having someone from his new family being home for the majority of the day.
He truly is a gorgeous dog, very playful and loves his exercise. He enjoys playing with his humans – especially with squeaky toys, ballks and cuddly toys!
Could you offer this handsome lad the home he so rightfully deserves?
