Gilbert is looking for a quiet forever home as he doesn't cope well with lots of visitors coming and going. Once he has built up a bond with you he is a very sweet little man but his new owner should remain hands off and let him take things at his own pace. He will need an owner who has experience with his breed that can continue further training with him using positive, reward based methods.
Type of home needed
Gilbert is looking for a home with adults of 18 years plus and no visiting children. He has bitten previously in situations where he was uncomfortable so his new owners should be committed to managing his environment to avoid putting him in similar circumstances. He will need to be kept on lead when in public places due to this but walks nicely and doesn't pull. He would benefit from having direct access to his own private garden with a 5ft fence to give him somewhere safe to run free and relax. He will need to be the only pet in the home.
More about me
Gilbert is used to having someone around for most of the day so would prefer company in his new home. The time he is left may be built up to an hour or two once he has had a little time to settle. Gilbert will make a great companion in the right home and given a time and space to build trust.
