Despite having a rough start Risk’s ability to love and trust has not been quashed. He lost his mother and most of his siblings as a puppy after they were left in a shed with limited access to food.
Despite a tough start as a puppy Risk’s ability to love and be loyal has only been made stronger.
His current carers are struggling to give Risk the attention he needs due to the pressures of a young, expanding family, only having a small yard and limited opportunities to exercise. Risk has become sad.
Risk loves being with humans and other dogs. He requires a home where he will be welcome to be involved with family activities. Risk loves to receive and give affection and is loyal and eager to please.
He will be best suited in a home with a large, interesting and secure yard or even acreage. He will thrive in a clam and relatively quiet environment where he is a companion for someone who is at least moderately active. He needs a home where he will overtly be loved and feel safe.
He will be fine with another dog in the home but as he is people orientated he will be suit homes with a stay at home parent, active retirees or folks who work from home. He tends to become anxious if left alone for more then 5-6 hours or so.
His new owners will need to understand it is not unusual for dogs to take time to settle into a new home, which is why we do not recommend he is adopted by a novice dog owner.
He will not suit homes where residents are very young, frail, elderly or time poor.
Yes, Risk enjoys being with other dogs and humans alike. If another dog is intimidating he will stand between the dog and his family but not be aggressive.
Yes with caution. Risk has been ok with cats at the homes of other people but has never lived with a cat. We recommend he does not live with a cat as a precaution.
Risk thinks chickens are playing when they run so he will run after them. While he does not attack the, his play is too rough for them.
Risk is fine with kids but has accidently knocked over the 2 yr old with his tail. We recommend any kids be primary school aged or older and only if gentle and calm around dogs.
Medium – he is playful and moderately active and would make a great jogging buddy. Unfortunately Risk is currently only able to have a walk once or twice a week.
How is this dog on a lead?
Risk is well behaved and slows down when his name is called.
How is this dog off the lead?
Risk usually stays close by and comes when called.
Risk needs a secure yard with normal (2 meter high) colour bond fencing as he can jump over low fencing. He can also use a trellis as a ladder so fencing will need to be clear.
If Risk is left alone for extended periods with limited space and not much exercise he will bark. While he may whinge a little when you leave he usually settles after a while. He may join in with another neighbour barker.
Understandably, if Risk is left alone for extended periods without exercise or mental stimulation he will dig holes.
Tolerance to being alone.
Risk needs someone home more often than not or who can take him with them when they leave.
Cuddles and running.
Being left alone.
