Puppy Womble needs a loving home
In their latest Man's Best Friend column, staff at the Jerry Green Dog Rescue Centre in Algarkirk introduce us to Womble...
Meet our wonderful Womble, who is a beautiful puppy on the verge of adolescence.
We are looking for very experienced owner who have a lot of experience using reward-based training methods to help Womble become a more confident young dog.
Womble can quite easily become excited in the home and this can lead him to jump up and mouth like many adolescent young dogs, but due to the intensity of this behaviour, he is not suitable to live with children and needs an adult only home (18 years-plus). At present we are assessing Womble’s ability to live with other dogs, so whilst we are welcoming applications from homes with another dog, the experience, home set up and personality of the other dog will be taken into consideration.
Please be aware Womble cannot live with cats or small animals. He is also very noise sensitive and becomes frightened quickly, so we are looking for a rural or semi-rural home for him.
He would make a great match for someone wanting to continue these in a non-competitive setting, or other dog sports such as fly-ball or hoopers when he is fully grown.
Due to Womble’s age, he is looking for someone that is at home most of the day to help dedicate the time to his house training and other training needs – he is a busy young man that requires a lot of attention to ensure he doesn’t get up to too much mischief.
If you are currently working from home, please consider the time you are working as the time he will be left on his own as getting much work done whilst Womble is settling in may be difficult.
Applications for Womble will close on Monday evening. Unfortunately, we will be unable to respond to those that have unsuccessful applications. If you don’t hear from us by the end of the week, please assume that on this occasion your application has not been successful.
Womble has lots of specific criteria, so we have organised an application process for him. We will only be taking interest via the application.
If you would like any further info on Womble and his need please read through his profile on our website at www.jerrygreendogs.org.uk/adopt-a-dog and if he sounds like he would be the perfect pup for you please don’t hesitate to apply through our application form at the bottom of his profile.
