Lloyd has been spending time in foster and has really opened up and started to relax. He's loved having a big garden to stretch his long legs in and his fosterers have worked with him and his anxiety when left alone. He now feels secure and safe in a crate when left. New owners should continue with this in helping reduce his anxiety when left alone. Will need continued support and confidence building in a home environment. Lloyd is an affectionate boy, although shy initially does like to have a fuss once he knows you. Especially wary of men, so takes longer to bond with men. He has lived outside for most of his life so would love to have a warm sofa to snooze on. Generally he is not interested in other dogs but is not keen on them getting in his face so will need to be kept on lead whilst out on walks. Lived with children before, could do so again with children used to living with a dog, Lloyd does jump up to greet so mindful of smaller children. Travels well in the car and is house trained. Lloyd is a really sweet, bouncy boy and very loyal once he trusts you. He is a lot of fun and really deserves his forever home.
As the owner you are responsible for providing everything your dog needs to keep them healthy and happy:
· Companionship - Dogs are very social and love spending time with people and sometimes other animals.
· Physical exercise - At least a couple walks a day.
· Mental Stimulation - Activity that keeps their mind busy / training.
· A healthy diet - Normally two feeds a day of the food type and quantity appropriate for the dog. Access to clean, fresh water.
· Veterinary care - When needed. Annual health check.
· Comfortable environment - Not too cold, hot, draughty or damp, where they can rest.
· Respect of their needs - Especially ensure children know how to behave around dogs to help them build a lasting friendship.
Each dog has specific needs, depending on its age, breed and type. For more info on caring for your dog please order our free pet care guide here: Pet Care Guide
