An absolutely gorgeous 13 month old Kelpie x Whippet who just loves hanging out with people.
He is full of energy and enjoys running, jumping, chewing and playing fetch. He also loves to snuggle up on the couch or bed for some cuddles whenever the opportunity is available.
He is still learning some basic skills and manners that may have been missing from his early upbringing but as a very intelligent dog he is picking these up extremely quickly. With continued, consistent training he will be a very well-behaved, friendly companion. He already understands several basic commands and has a natural inclination to learn and always wants to please his people.
He walks very well on a halti harness but could do with some more training to not pull when on a standard collar.
He gets along with most dogs but can growl if he feels threatened. He can get a bit excited by cats but gives them a wide berth once he’s been put in his place!
He is VERY athletic! His new home will need to have secure, high fences as he can easily scale a 5 foot fence if he feels so inclined. He also does not like to be left alone. He has made some good progress in becoming comfortable by himself but will need some ongoing understanding while he settles in at his new home. He would do best with a family that has someone around most the time and he would love to live somewhere that he is allowed inside and gets to be involved in the action and be treated as part of the family.
He has a slight overbite leading to his nickname of “Phteven” while in foster care. He also swallowed some rope as a young puppy resulting in an operation so rope toys are not recommended.
Charlie is desexed, vaccinated, Microchipped, flea and worm treated and ready for his new forever home.
His adoption fee is $500 and is located with his carer in Gilles Plains.
