Sweet Sonny is our longest resident, having now been in the kennels since August 2018. Sonny was rehomed by us in October 2017, sadly his new owner had to go back to his home country and couldn’t take Sonny with him. Sonny has had a tough life, he’d had at least 4 homes before he arrived with us.
Sonny’s previous owner had him neutered and his behaviour changed after castration, Sonny now isn’t great with other dogs although he did live with a female companion dog. His owner advised us that he’s worse on lead than off but of course any new owner would have to be sensible about introductions and letting him off the lead, certainly for the first few months. His lead manners are pretty good and all the dog walkers here are really fond of him. Although he is quite excitable when he sees other dogs, cats or even sheep!! So his new owners will need to be strong and fit in order to hold on.
Sonny is pretty clever, quickly working out how to open all kinds of doors. He’s happy to be left at home for a few hours at a time, just make sure you’ve locked the doors or he’ll be out after you! He loves being brushed – which is handy because it needs done regularly.
Sonny is a big strong boy and so we believe that he really needs to be around children at least 10 years of age – not that he’s a danger to them – they’re just harder to knock over!
Sonny can not be rehomed with cats, having killed a cat in his last home.
Sonny’s new home should be semi-rural with a fully enclosed garden as he loves lying outside in all weathers.Come and meet Sonny
