Vladimir arrived in our care incredibly worried and shut down.  He needed time to settle, adjust to kennels and to trust his handlers.  Due to his behaviour around fast hand movements, we believe he has been hit previously.  Even if you throw a treat or a toy for him he cowers, so it’s important that new owners are aware of this. 

Despite that though, he is an absolutely wonderful boy and once he has spent some time with new people, he quickly comes round and is a lot more relaxed. He really doesn’t have a nasty bone in his body, he is so gentle and loving once you build that bond with him.

He has had some previous training and knows sit, down (lured with a treat) and paw, he will also do a wait.   He will enjoy learning new commands and tricks.  Not only will this provide him with much needed stimulation, it will help his confidence and strengthen the bond with his owners. 

Vladimir has tested well with other dogs and will play and interact nicely with them.  He is currently kennelled with a female Lurcher type and they love to play chase and zoom around together.  He is very respectful when meeting other dogs and reads their body language well.  He may benefit from living with a confident, playful dog.

In a home with owners who have owned dogs before and have the time to bring Vladimir out of his shell more, he will make a loving, loyal and fun companion.

Can you offer this lovely boy a loving and permanent new home?
