He is an absolutely gorgeous little fluff ball. He loves having his fur brushed, long walks, and snuggles on the couch.
He really likes company and gets pretty sad when he’s left home alone and will get super excited when you get home. At the moment we leave him inside when we go out just because he does bark, because of this he’d be suited to someone who is home a lot.
He’s really good with other animals. When we first got him he’d never met chickens before, he chased them a few times but after a week he had no interest in them and now goes in the backyard happily with them.
He also lives with 2 cats, he will sometimes bark at them if he thinks they’re getting a treat that he wants but they mostly just ignore each other.
At the moment he is living with a 10 month old baby and a 4 year old child, previously he has also lived with young children but he definitely isn’t a dog for young kids. He would be fine with children visiting but I find having the kids around 24/7 makes him more anxious and I think is contributing to some anxiety issues he has overall. He doesn’t hate the kids but he isn’t super into them either and would rather play with me than them.
Although Severus loves his walks and is perfect on the lead he is very scared of other dogs and will frequently bark and jump when he sees other dogs. I’ve tried a few different ways to get him to stop but I haven’t had any luck. The dog park is a totally different story and he generally gets on really well with other dogs and has met friends dogs and gotten on fine with them. So he isn’t necessarily an only dog but I think he would be better housed with smaller dogs.
He knows how to sit but at the moment will only do it at home and not out in public or on lead, no idea why.
He is such a beautiful little dog who has had a bit of a rough start to life in the family department so I’m really hoping we can find him a forever home.
He will come with his bed, collar, lead, and harness.
Severus is desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, flea and worm treated, his adoption fee is $450 and is located in Reynella East.
