More About Me
Likes, Dislikes, Fears, Endearments and Quirks
Buckley has a warm, gentle temperament and is loyal and affectionate.
His easy going nature would see him easily slot into family life.
Buckley is very intuitive and can sense when his owner is unhappy and provides steadfast companionship.
He has a striking appearance with one eye a different colour.
Buckley is not fond of water.
Buckley will appeal to many families but ideally he would love to share his life with kids and another friendly dog.
He is ok for full time workers (9am-5pm) as long as he is a central focus when people are home.
As Buckley is people orientated he needs to be part of family activities.
He will not suit homes with residents that are very young, frail, elderly, renters or time poor.
Type of Yard Required
Medium to large interesting and secure. He may take advantage of an open gate and wander off but does not usually try and escape. Normal 6 foot (2 meter) fencing is fine but needs to go into the ground as he may dig underneath if able to.
Tolerance to Being Alone During the Day
Buckley will alert to something strange but is not currently a nuisance barker.
He will suit any of the following:
Medium - playful and moderately active (can miss a daily walk). Needs a medium to large backyard.
When ON a lead ...
Like most dogs he starts off pulling but settles.
When OFF a lead ...
May take off if excited but usually comes back when called.
