Bandit – Available for Adoption
Bandit – Age 4 (10-02-2017)
Dogs – To be homed with calm companion dog/s
Cats – No cats
Children – Older, dog respectful children 12+
Dogs – Bandit is currently an only dog who can be reactive when meeting other dogs she doesn’t know when she is on the lead. She is much more able to cope when off lead and after initial shyness socialises well.
Cats – No cats
Children – Bandit has lived children previously, but due to her somewhat unpredictable behaviour on the lead we are recommending older, dog savvy children 12 +.
Personality – Bandit is a loving and sweet natured girl. She loves to play and lets her family know when she is ready for a tumble, by tapping them with one of her soft toys. Bandit is lovely with people and even welcomes delivery people to the home.
She is an active girl and would love to be out and about, happily accompanying her family on a run through the countryside. She currently has about 1 ½ - 2 hours a day, but could easily manage more. Bandit has good recall, but also quite high prey drive whereupon she can become fixated on whatever has her attention.
Suitable home – Bandit would benefit from living with an active outdoorsy family. She absolutely loves to be outside running and playing. She can be left for short periods of time, and is not destructive, but we will be looking for a home where someone is around most of the time to keep her occupied and stimulated. Bandit does not cope well living in a busy area, she would be far more suited to a rural setting. Her current family are certain if she were to meet fewer dogs, but on a regular basis, her anxiety would decrease and she would begin to enjoy and benefit from being out in the open air, rather than constantly on edge wondering which dogs she will meet next.
Additional Information - We would like Bandit to go to a home who have experience of coping with a dog who can be reactive on the lead. Bandit will also need continued training and desensitization to dogs on the lead.
