More About Me
Likes, Dislikes, Fears, Endearments and Quirks
Shadow is a loyal, affectionate, pretty obedient dog and a popular designer breed. He will make a wonderful companion for the right home that understands him.
Shadow is also a loner, wary and is not a social dog. He likes a quiet routine, tends to be more comfortable around women and will bond to one person.
His new owner should be a patient, observant person who is unafraid, nurturing and not a novice dog owner. A novice may not notice that Shadow is being pushed beyond his limitations (with lots of kids, noise or unusual activity at home) and if not corrected may feel frightened and as a protection mechanism, nip.
Shadow is generally a relaxed 'smoochie' dog at home when his environment is calm and quiet.
When Shadow feels safe and happy he will 'shadow' his owner around the house and garden, dutifully sitting at their feet or close by.
A single mature person (preferably female) or couple with a relaxed demeanour that can give Shadow lots of love, patience, exercise and a sense of safety.
As Shadow with thrive in a calm, quiet environment he will not suit someone who has a lot of visitors. When strangers visit he will need somewhere he classes as safe to retire too.
Shadow is fine alone for up to half the day but has never been left any longer.
Shadow needs to be the only permanent dog in the home and be kept on the lead when walking as he can quickly turn from being a relaxed, happy dog to being anxious and unpredictable.
As Shadow is people orientated he needs to be part of family activities.
He will not suit homes with residents that are:
Tolerance to Being Alone During the Day
Will alert to something strange but is not currently a nuisance barker.
Shadow will suit any of the following:
Medium - playful and moderately active. Shadow does become bored if he misses a daily walk.
When ON a lead ...
Like most dogs he starts off pulling but settles.
When OFF a lead ...
Shadow has never been off the lead because his responsible owners have been cautious. * When relaxed he is obedient but when anxious he will stand his ground if challenged by another dog.
