3 yr old Bearded Collie / Australian Cattle Dog X

Listing #: 1451940943
3 years old

Finley is a really healthy, endearing dog in need of an understanding home, as he can be a bit of a Jeckyll & Hyde around strangers. At home with everyone in the family he knows he's a big submissive softy, eager to please, quiet and very obedient, but when meeting strangers he's often over protective and unfriendly. Out on the lead he does tend to react in certain situations with barking and strong pulling. He's done some training courses which have improved things but the wife's 'nurses back' means she can no longer walk him. He needs an experienced dog owner with time, techniques & patience to acclimatize him to new people. Whilst he's always been fine with our 12 year old daughter, he's very unsure with her friends so would probably suit family without children.

Fine with car journeys & doesn't bark when left with our female Huntaway, to whom he's very submissive. Hasn't really been exposed to other animals and has bit of a sensitive stomach. Can be overly boisterous in open public spaces, but doggy care care owners confirm always plays great with other dogs when off the lead with them!

Micro chipped & all vaccinations and de-sexing done.
