Comet is a very nervous boy who is fearful of everything, so needs a calm and dedicated owner who preferably has experience with nervous dogs. His new owner needs to be dedicated and willing to commit to long term training and confidence building, while always being mindful of how anxious he will get in new situations. He is working hard to improve his manners and become more comfortable when he sees another dog, but this is something he will need to continue with his new owner. Comet is very loving and playful when around people that he knows, and he loves any kind of human contact, especially getting his ears scratched. He is lots of fun to have around and will make a very rewarding pet for the right person. He does love his treats and he is always keen to work on his training so he can get some tasty rewards. He would suit being the only pet in a quiet, adult only, home with an enclosed garden. As Comet has some specific requirements we will carry out a home check for any possible homes.



Bamboo is a sweet boy who needs to gain some confidence. He can be quite shy around new people, but he does come around quite quickly. He is affectionate when he gets to know you and enjoys getting petted, especially a head rub, but he likes his own space too and prefers for attention to be on his terms. Bamboo would like a home with a garden so he can go outside to explore. He would like to be the only pet in his new home and may suit living with high school aged children.
