Shep is a sweet chap with a sensitive side. It will take him a little time to build trust in new people, but when offering him a calm greeting and allowing him the time he needs, you'll begin to start the foundations of a life-long friendship and Shep will relish your company & will show you how affectionate he can be. He really enjoys his food - whether it be gaining treat-rewards when doing some training, settling down with a chew, working out a food puzzle or tucking into his dinner!
Type of home needed
Much more of a 'ladies' man', Shep can be worried by strangers but is particularly wary of men. His potential owners must be willing to spend time coming to the centre on several occasions to get to know him and he cannot live in a male-only household. He is looking for a quiet, adult-only home with minimal visitors and with no more than three people, so he can build a strong enough bond with those around him. Shep enjoys the company of other friendly dogs so he could have walking buddies, but he will need to be the only pet at home. Relaxing walks in rural, quiet areas are essential, as is a garden of his own to spend time in.
More about me
Shep has some insecurities about the world and is hoping to find understanding owners who could help develop his confidence by participating in positive, reward-based training and he will make a loyal and loving companion.
