Handsome boy Shankly originally came into our care in 2016 due to the arrival of a new baby, however his family felt they had made a mistake and so we allowed them to take him back. Sadly Shankly recently found himself in our care once again but this time due to a change in his owner’s work hours.
He was soon rehomed but has been returned to us after several weeks due to biting twice, both in high stress situations.
Shankly had never bitten prior to this and we believe a combination of stress, along with an ongoing complaint with his ears sadly led to this. He desperately deserves a second chance, in a quiet home where he will be allowed time to settle.
Shankly is a sweet, sociable boy who is still very active and thoroughly enjoys walkies and playing with toys. He has mixed well with other dogs but we are unsure how compatible he will be to live with them at this stage. He does not like cats.
Shankly came to us from a busy family home with young children, however due to the incidents that occurred in the last home we are looking for an adult only home, free from young children (including visiting children) and with no children planned for the future.
Shankly is clean and non-destructive in the home and is okay to be left alone for a couple of hours. He is in good health but is currently on medication for issues with his ears that we are hoping will improve with treatment.
Overall Shankly is a fun, friendly little chap who will fit well into most homes and desperately deserves a second chance at happiness.
