Nigel came in on the 11th of April via another rescue. He was originally picked up as a very fearful stray back in June 2021. Nigel can still be nervous of strangers but is quick to befriend people (with a few treats thrown in!) He is a big lad so physical strength and a good amount of experience of dogs is needed in his new home
Nigel knows sit, down, paw and his name on command, is clean in his kennel (so should pick up housetraining easily) and enjoys playing with toys. He loves his food and if he thinks you have a treat will give you his full attention! He can be quite mouthy and still very much acts like a pup so his new owner will need to be understanding of this.
Nigel is dog friendly although he does play quite rough so suits play with equally matched dogs. it’s best to avoid smaller dogs as he doesn’t realise he’s not tiny! He will need a home without cats.
Nigel is looking for an experienced owner in a rural or semi-rural location and he will need his own garden. He would not suit city life. As we have no history on what has happened to him before he was found as a stray we will be looking for an adult only home.
Anyone wishing to adopt Nigel will need to be prepared to make a few visits to the shelter to get to know him.
