Scooby dooby doo!
Big Friendly Giant
Well like his name sake Scooby likes to think he's tough, but he is not as brave as he likes to think he is. This boy is beautiful inside and out.
He is a very affectionate goofy boy. He will sit on your lap, all 45kgs of him, if you let him. He loves fuss and attention. He really enjoys lazing on his bed in the sunshine, you could say he's a bit of a couch potato and will love it even more with his special person sitting by his side.
Could you be Scooby Doo's Shaggy, unlike the cartoon character you will need to be a confident person, Scooby needs a kind confident loving leader, so he can be the very best he can.
This boy has bags of potential, he is generally very laid back, but can be a little excitable at times, but is responding very well to training.
Scooby came into the centre, having been found roaming the streets.
Scooby's ideal home would be with people who understand his anxieties and are willing to work through them with him. As previously mentioned Scooby is big in stature but not in confidence, his new owner will need to show him that life isn't as scary as he sometimes thinks it is. They will need to take things at Scooby's pace when introducing him to new situations and new people and not rush him, this boy is going to take a good while to settle into his new life. A home with teenage children, if any, would be best. A quiet home with not too much going on in a quiet location would be best for this big lad. He is a bit too keen on the sheep next to the centre, so a garden that doesn't back on to farmland is a must. He would need to be an only pet, although walks with doggie friends on leads may be possible if introductions were taken slowly. His new owners must be fit and physically able to handle a large strong dog and be keen to continue his training.
