Black and white, long coated, male, 6 years old.
Marty is a loving boy but lacks confidence and will need reassurance. He has been in foster care for 4 months now receiving lots of love and rehabilitation. He is now a calm boy who loves to sleep and although he needs a good walk he mostly plays ball so does not need long rambles (although he wouldn’t say no)!
He does like being in the garden but not being shut out. Balls are an important part of Marty’s life and he is happy when surrounded by them!
Marty’s confidence does affect his interaction with other dogs. His recall is excellent and he can be called away from other dogs very easily. More often if dogs pester him he will growl but on occasion he will snarl and chase the dog off. You can see from his eyes that he is frightened rather than aggressive.
As his foster carer and trainer I would like nothing more than to keep Marty. Sadly his previous home had a child and he felt he had to compete for attention. As we hope to start a family we are not the best forever home for him. He is an absolute joy and his positive reaction to retraining has been amazing. He is an extremely intelligent boy who loves to give big wet licky kisses!
Would suit an older couple with no other animals especially dogs or cats (Marty is not liking the feline race). He is an excellent guard dog. He thinks birds and squirrels are playmates! We have a full history for Marty and he is up to date with vaccinations.
Marty is in foster care so please contact Louise on 01189 775080 or 07590 651921 if you are interested.
