Foxy is a handsome medium sized crossbreed that arrived at the rescue as a stray, he was spotted roaming around an area for a few weeks and was eventually caught and brought to safety using a dog trap. Since his arrival we have done lots of work with him to help him gain confidence and get used to walking on a lead, it is very clear that he has previously been allowed to roam as he is a free spirit! He will need a very secure garden with decent fences as when he first arrived he did attempt to escape and climb our paddock fences, as soon as he settled a bit he was fine and hasn’t tried since, but just in case. His recall is non-existant so he will need lots of work on this. Since his arrival he has met lots of dogs and is generally quite sociable and does have a few playmates, however he isn’t very tolerant of rude/boisterous dogs and will tell them off. He does have potential to live with other dogs once slow introductions have been done here at the rescue. Foxy is looking for a home with sensible teenagers 14+ as we have no idea of his history prior to being caught and brought to the rescue. Foxy doesn’t seem to know any commands, and we aren’t sure if he has lived inside a home before so he is likely to need training. He needs daily consistent walks to ensure he stays socialised and if he went to live in a busy area he needs to be introduced to things like built up areas, traffic and crowded places slowly and gradually. Ideally he is looking for a rural home as he was seen roaming a rural area and will be more comfortable in that type of setting. Foxy is a cuddly, needy boy once he is comfortable with you and adores having lots of fuss. Anyone interested in rehoming Foxy will need to make a few visits to the rescue in order to build up a bond with him before taking him home, and will also need to work with our behaviour team to ensure they are fully aware of Foxy’s needs. We really hope the right home comes along for him soon as he has so much love to give.

Foxy now enjoys mixing with other dogs in sessions like this…
