Sven, 20 month old Lab x Collie

Sven will need an experienced dog owner with their own (not shared) secure (fence of 6ft) garden.

Sven will be 2 in August, he has spent much of his life in a rural outdoor kennel with another dog who was bullying him.

As a result of this Sven is quite anxious and could even be described as a bit feral. When he arrived Sven found having a lead put on very stressful and would throw himself to the floor, he now wears a collar and will walk with a lead on but has poor lead skills so would need someone experienced and perhaps willing to enrol him in training classes going forward, we will continue to work on this while he is with us.

Sven does not appear to be house-trained although his kennel is not as messy as it was when he first arrived. He hasn’t spent a lot of time indoors so any new family will ideally have someone home most of the time at least initially while he settles in.

Sven has not been around young children so teenagers only please.

Sven has never seen a cat but his owner advises that he has a high chase instinct so we would not recommend him be rehomed with cats.

Come and meet Sven
