Eigenn is 9 years old, and has not had the easiest life. This is something that we are determined to change for him! He is a wonderful boy with a lot to give, but needs to be able to do things at his pace. He needs a special kind of person that has the time and patience to gain his trust and not worry about wanting to take things too fast.
Eigenn loves toys, loves tennis balls, loves squeaky toys (they last for seconds!). He knows where the toy cupboard is in kennels and gets very excited anytime anyone goes near it – just in case there may be a new toy coming his way! He is a real water baby and cannot resist any kind of water, from a puddle to a river, He loves to paddle, but sadly is not allowed to swim anymore due to a minor back issue. He is a good traveller and loves to go to new and exciting places for adventures, is good off lead and has good recall. He is clever but stubborn, loves food and treats so easy to motivate for training – just have to be careful that he does not become demanding.
Eigenn has not lived with another dog before and we feel that he would be happiest as the only dog in the home so that he does not feel that he has to compete for anything. Out and about he is very sociable, loves meeting new doggy friends, quite happy to meet new people provided he has time to assess and to choose.
Eigenn is a really sensitive boy who has had a real mixed bag of experiences from humans. He needs a quiet, adult only home and time to get to know you and to trust that you are safe. He had been kept predominantly as an outdoor dog, so is very used to having his own space, and we feel that it will be crucial for him in his new home to have his own quiet room where he can “time out” as and when he needs to – a good sized utility/boot room or well ventilated conservatory would be perfect. Eigenn is a loyal boy and tends to bond strongly with people he does trust. Anyone applying for him will need a good understanding of dogs and in particular dogs who have extra needs. He has a lot to give back, but this will need to be in his own time and with a lot of support from his new owners.
