Ringo - Sydney, local adoption only
MC # 900164001700374
This is Ringo, a young fellow who was found on the streets but because he wasn’t microchipped, he was never able to reunite with his family.
Ringo is a small boy at 10 months old and weighing in at around 20 kilos. He’s a quick learner and watches his furry foster brothers learning how to behave. After only 5 days with his foster family, he had already learned not to go upstairs and not to go on the carpets.
Ringo is energetic as are all puppies and makes a great watch dog as he will bark to alert you of anything and everything....the postman, birds flying overhead, cars passing or strangers approaching the house …Ringo will let you know. He will also help you with the gardening digging holes in the grass for treasure. We haven’t found any yet.
Ringo is house trained, knows not to climb furniture and not to counter surf. He loves belly rubs, sitting between the sofa as the family watches TV and of course, walkies !! He will pull at the lead and will need more practice to stop that. He is not good with recall yet.
During walkies, Ringo is cautious of strangers and can growl or bark as a warning until he knows it is safe and is still learning how to walk comfortably and happily. He has made some great improvements in this area but will need an owner who is confident at walking him and can continue to teach him good manners on lead. He is not yet suitable to be walked off lead. With good handling this behaviour will continue to improve as he gains confidence in the world.
As he is still a pup, Ringo will chew toys to destruction however, he’s been very considerate and has not chewed any shoes or socks. He has however chewed a pair of old gardening gloves. They were left on the floor so I guess Ringo thought it was fair game. He has learned to sit and wait for permission before tucking into his dinner and he knows his bedtime routine. Ringo sleeps in a crate.
As with all youngsters, he has a lot to learn so he will need to go to a family who is willing to continue his training and maybe have an older friendly dog to teach him the ropes. He just wants to be part of the family all the time.
Ringo is suitable for a family with children aged 10 and over. As for all pups, he would benefit from ongoing socialisation and training to grow in confidence.
Ringo is located in Sydney NSW and is available for local adoption only as he can get travel sickness. Ringo comes desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm and intestinal worm treated with a ton of love and a gorgeous smile for the right family for a re-homing fee of $700.
