Alex - NSW
HELLO my name is Alex. I am a 5 ½ year old “Puppy” and just love to be petted and hang out with my humans.
I have spent a lot of time living outdoors so everything inside is new to me and so I need to investigate as much as I can. Because I have spent a lot of time outside I don’t have many inside manners and whatever is yours is also mine, but I am slowly learning appropriate inside behaviour. I like to play with anything I can get my paws on – pillows, thongs, shoes, soft toys, clothes – you name it and I want it.
My new owner will have to be prepared to work really hard to teach me more inside manners and how to be relaxed and calm when I am inside. I will stay on my designated mat but only if you are there beside me to pat me and keep me calm. I don’t like it much when visitors come to the door and I get very scared and bark a lot. You may have to be prepared to bring in a lovely dog trainer to help me get over this. I am also learning how to walk properly on a lead and harness and have improved so much in the short time I have been with my foster family – who knew walking could be so much fun! I have basic obedience such as sit, drop and stay but I have never heard of recall and have no idea what this is.
I currently live with a foster brother but I would love to be your one and only pet as I want all your love and constant attention. I absolutely love to swim and have my very own special pool but I really love it when my foster family let me in their big pool – it is so much fun splashing around and swimming! So if you have a property where I could run and swim all day that would be heaven to me. As long as I get my morning walk and some play time I don’t really mind being home by myself as long as you are prepared to walk me again and give me your constant attention when you do come home. I don’t pay much attention to the wildlife (ducks / birds / rabbits) whilst out walking as there is more interesting things to sniff and investigate, my foster family do not have any cats so I don’t know if I like them or not.
Oops….two more things before I go. I am a bit on the heavy side so my diet is pretty restricted until we get my weight under control so you must be firm and not give me too many treats no matter how much I beg you with my adorable big brown eyes. And, at the moment, I’m too big and reckless to be with any children under age 10.
If you think you are the perfect human to help me become the absolutely fantastic dog I know I can be then I would love to meet you very soon.
Alex is located in NSW and is available for adoption. He comes desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm and intestinal worm treated. This gorgeous boy is available to the right family for a rehoming fee of $500.00
