Shay is quite the lovable rogue. He is fine to walk with female dogs but does not get along with males. His table manners are not the best so care has to be taken when giving him treats as he tends to snatch at them. With some positive training this problem should be able to sorted out. He will also require some assistance with his house training as he does tend to cock his leg everywhere. He is very people friendly, however care has to be taken if picking him up for any reason as he can take issue with this if taken unawares. With a little effort and assistance Shay should become a lovely companion. Shay does unfortunately have a grade 4 heart murmur which means he will be on medication for the remainder of his life. It is not known if Shay has been around cats before.
Shay was rescued from a Dog Pound. He had been surrendered by an elderly owner who unfortunately was no longer able to care for him.
Due to Shay's lack of table manners, we will not be rehoming him to a home with young children in case of an accident. He will require quite an experienced home with someone who is prepared through positive training techniques help him with his behaviour.
