Description

Likes

Sid is a handsome three-year-old New Zealand Huntaway cross Collie. He is an affectionate and soppy boy who loves a fuss and snuggles. Sid needs and enjoys lots of exercise, a good long hike in the countryside, quiet walks with lots of open space so he can have room to move away from other dogs and strangers if he chooses. Sid lacks confidence around other dogs, but he has been doing well with walking alongside calm, sociable dogs here at the centre. Adopters will need to continue with his training for him to carry on improving his dog social skills. He loves and responds so well to praise; he thrives on hearing that he is a 'good-boy' and a 'clever boy.' Sid knows a few tricks, sit, down and paw, he loves treats and he loves to learn which is great for mental stimulation - keeping his clever brain working! Sid is housetrained and happy to travel in the car.

Type of home needed

Sid is looking for an active and loving home. He could live with older teenage children (Fourteen-years plus) and he has good history of living with a cat so could perhaps live with a dog savvy cat in his new home. Sid will need to be the only dog in the home. He will need a home away from fast moving traffic, he is especially worried by lorries. Sid needs access to quiet walks with lots of space. Narrow, busy tracks would not be suitable! Care is needed around livestock; Sid may bark at sheep. Experience of the breeds would be helpful but not essential. We recommend that potential adopters do some research about the breeds.
