More About Us
Maggie and Duke need a quiet and calm environment with an attentive and doting owner that will prioritise the dogs. They need to be welcome to be involved in family activities. You will need to be able to cope with a breed that is prone to skin allergies.
They will not suit homes with residents that are very young, frail, elderly, renters, full time workers or time poor.
Low - short strolls or playtime at home.
When ON a lead ...
When OFF a lead ...
Will stay close by and come when called.
Type of Yard Required
The dogs are not destructive. They will wander off if a gate or door is left open. Need a small to medium interesting and secure yard.
Tolerance to Being Alone During the Day
Will alert to something strange but are not currently nuisance barkers. They will suit any of the following:
Likes, Dislikes, Fears, Endearments and Quirks
They love to be close to their human family, playing in the park and spending time with each other. They are also cheeky, affectionate, friendly and inquisitive.
The breed is prone to skin allergies but this should be improved with less stress and more attention than they are currently getting.
