Chilli is looking for an adult only home with no other animals. He is a very complex little character who has already had a lot happen in his very short life. He is looking for a special home that will be able to do behaviour work and training with him.
Chilli has a number of behaviour issues that need to be worked on over a period of time, he is going to be a very challenging adoption and is looking for a home that has patience, time and is willing to provide him with all the training that is required.
He is a dog full of bounce and character, he knows how to sit but he often can not control his excitement and will wriggle and yelp and will not stand still. He will play with toys but is easily distracted. He does have the potential to learn and when out walking on his own with one person he will listen and walk nicely.
Chilli appears to lack social skills with people and dogs and this is a key area that needs work, he will bark at everything and anyone that he comes in to contact with and with the mixture of excitement and anxiety he is very difficult to calm down which is why he needs a home that is willing to work with him.
He has issues with traffic and bicycles and his barking extends to noises outside of the home. he is a reactive dog but being so young and with training he may well improve. Chilli does not do well being left alone and would need people around him regularly.
He has lived with another dog in his previous home but is very selective about dogs so ideally would be best suited as the only dog. He has not been tested with cats but from his behaviour we would advise no cats in the home.
All our dog viewings are by appointment only and this is only arranged after an application has been received. The criteria for Chilli is specific to his needs and we will only consider applications that meet this.
