The Ark Rescue & Rehoming Centre, Ashbourne, Derbyshire
Ed is a handsome young lad who has had a bit of a unsettled start to life, he spent a lot of his time as a puppy in a crate, and then got taken to kennels! The kennels closed down, and he came to us looking for a new home!
We did find Ed a new home, but sadly it didn't work out and Ed was returned to us. In the home he took a dislike to the man of household and would react in some situations, he also proved to be quite boisterous and took a while to settle when visitors came, which in a busy household.. was quite stressful. Ed was good in the home in many ways; he was toilet trained, not destructive and had some manners.
In kennels, Ed is a big soppy character, and loves nothing more than giving you a big staffy cuddle... which often involves a headbutt!
Ed can be boisterous, but he's also an anxious lad.. and doesn't enjoy life in the kennels... probably due to him spending alot of his life caged!! Ed will need a home where there are people around a fair amount, to try and help him gain confidence and settle into a new routine.
Ed is very sweet, and desperately needs a forever home to give him a chance at happiness.
Ideally Ed would go out on a foster basis to start, so we can see how he behaves in the home with the help of our animal behaviousist.
