Handsome Hunter was found running loose in the park with two little dogs , he was not claimed and although microchipped the contact details were not up to date.
He is a powerful friendly boy but a real livewire at the moment, partly because he is finding kennel life very stressful. He just cant seem to relax , even when he is out it is like he is looking for something - or someone? maybe his last owner?
As you can see from the picture he loves to pick up anything soft,  and when over excited it doesnt have to be a toy,  scatter cushions will do!  or sometimes his lead - this is already improving but are habits which can be off putting to some and  that will need continued training to overcome.
We would really like to find him a home asap if not his forever one then a foster home where he can start to relax and show his true personality. Sadly as we have no history we do not know if he has been around children, cats or other dogs, although he has mixed with dogs while out for lead walks and been very good.

Hunter has now been castrated and is settling down and building friensdhips with his carers, he loves companionship and im sure with come on leaps and bound when he can build that special bond with a new owner
He will need direct access to a secure garden and someone around to help if needed teach him the house rules and work calmly to help him overcome his anxiety at being abandoned

Why I'm special

Our Hunter has come on so much since arriving an anxious boy always looking for someone, but kennels is no place for him to really relax and settle,
what Hunter  needs is a home of his own with that special someone who can see the potential he has if given a chance.

Nobody has even been to see Hunter yet, we dont know why , maybe because his last owner chose instead of signing him over to a rescue just to abandon him, so we have no real history to pass on ?  I cant believe its his looks because he is such a handsome boy !   Maybe its  because he might pick your cushions up or rag on his lead ? I have to be honest he might to begin with but this behaviour he uses to comfort himself when stressed and we can provide behavioural support to help with this if it continues.   But he has so much more to offer as well , some rescues are already perfect and adjust quickly  but the special ones need a little work , some time, training ,  patience and love to get over whats gone on in their past.

Help feed animals in our care

It costs on average £8.52 to feed a single animal in our care for just one week!

We rehome thousands of animals every year. Whilst some are lucky enough to find a new home in just a few weeks, many more stay with us for months until we're able to find them their perfect family.

Will you help us cover the costs of feeding dogs, cats, horses, rabbits and more with a donation today?

*The funds collected will be used wherever the need is greatest.
