Please complete the Expression of Interest form if you wish to meet Hercules.
Hercules is a gorgeous, smoochy dog with a big smile. He is living in harmony with a puppy (pictured) but does not get on with another family dog (not sure who is the problem) hence the need for a new home. An experienced dog walked recently took Herc out for a walk and said he ignored another dog in a yard and also a small dog off lead who came up to him. He is looking for someone who understands that he has not had much to do with other dogs for a number of years and we are not sure how he is with other dogs. With a little guidance and some direction we hope Hercules can learn to trust other dogs again. We recommend Hercules is an only dog as a precaution.
Yes but as he might accidentally knock one over we recommend any kids be at least teenagers.
Medium - playful and energetic.
How is your dog on a lead?
Like most dogs he starts off pulling but settles down. As Hercules can also pull when he sees another dog he will not suit people with mobility issues or who are frail.
How is the dog off the lead?
His recall is not good.
No. However, we recommend all dogs have a secure yard.
Nuisance barker or destructive?
He is not currently a nuisance barker but will alert you to something strange. He also eats shoes if they are left lying around.
Tolerance to being alone
Yes. However, preference will be given to homes where he does not spend extended periods of time without any company – we don’t want dogs sleeping their lives away because their owners are time poor.
Hercules loves getting out for walks and also playing tug of war.
Hercules is not good with other dogs.
Hercules needs a medium to large secure yard. He is a big sook around his family and can forget his size while leaning in for a cuddle. He will not suit first time dog owners. He needs a firm but kind owner with the skills and time to work towards socialising him.
He will not suit residents who are young, frail, elderly or time poor.
When eating food Hercules is gentle and you can even take food off him. He will also sit, shakes hands and high five. Hercules is territorial to strangers but affectionate, loyal and playful with his family.
Hercules has been a cherished member of the family but needs a new home by mid OCT 2017 due to family and rental pressures.
Special thanks to Michelle Morgan for her fantastic photos.
