Wellington is a very sweet boy who adores getting love and attention from his handlers. He does not cope in kennels well and is very stressed when left on his own. He would much prefer to be out getting lots of fuss and playing with his carers.

Wellington suffers with separation anxiety and becomes very vocal when left. Welly is looking for a home where his new owners would be around to help him feel safe and secure and have home alone time built up gradually. He adores his toys and enjoys working to get his treats from activity toys. Giving these things to Wellington will help him to cope when left on his own.

Wellington is worried by other dogs and doesn’t know how to interact with them.  He can become quite stressed and vocal when seeing them but he is highly treat motivated, so rewarding him for calm behaviour around other dogs works well when he is under threshold.  Due to his reactivity, Wellington is muzzled on walks, but this really doesn’t bother him in the slightest, as he can still be rewarded with tasty treats. 

He is looking for a calm home in a quiet, rural area with a large fully secure garden that he can play in and enjoy. He can be stimulated mentally through interactive games, calming scent work and learning new behaviours. He adores playing with his toys and will enjoy spending time with his new owners playing long games of fetch. He loves playing with his tennis balls and also enjoys playing with his soft squeaky toys.

In a home with owners who have experience with the breed and are willing to continue working with Wellington and his anxiety, he will make a wonderful companion.

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