Spuddy ~ Approx 18 week old Mixed Breed ~ $400
Meet Spuddy! This gorgeous guy was found wandering the streets and was picked up and taken to the local pound. Nobody came to collect him so he came to us! He came on transport sharing a pen with our little battler Zara, so once we discovered she was sick, poor Spuddy had to spend 2 weeks in quarantine to make sure he didn’t get sick. He was certainly very happy to go for a big run after those two weeks! It is a bit unclear as to his breed as he is a real bitza, however, we can definitely see heeler in him. We think he will grow into a medium-large breed dog. He has many working dog traits, stalking his toys and foster sister (a kelpie), very intelligent, but doesn’t seem to have the same stamina for running around all day! One good run or play a day would tucker Spuddy out. He has learnt to sit for his food, sit on command, drop, roll and fetch. We are continuing lead training, not jumping up and socialisation with other dogs. He is still very much a puppy and will need continued training now while he is still small and young. Spuddy just LOVES people. He would suit just about any home, but would best be suited to a family with another dog or with who is around most of the time to keep him occupied, as we know how destructive a puppy can be. If you have younger children, keep in mind he is still learning not to jump up and not to nip (as all puppy’s need to learn!) but with continued training, he will grow out of these. He gets on well with other dogs, and while he doesn’t mind the cat, he just wants to play, and will chase him when he runs. Once he has had his fun, Spuddy loves nothing more than to rest his head on your leg, or snuggle up with you on the couch (if you let him!). Such a fantastic pup, who with plenty of love and training will certainly make an incredible life companion.
Spuddy is desexed, microchipped, and up to date with vaccinations, flea and worm treatments.
