Caring for English Springers since 1990. Charity No. 1154632
|Age||Around 6 years|
|People Status||A happy go lucky and friendly boy who likes a bit of space sometimes. He prefers it if you like playing football -Messi is a good goalie!|
|Dog Status||Lives with one, likes to play, but doesn’t like unknown pushy dogs|
|Handling (Grooming)||Good, though having his feet touched worries him|
|Training||Good recall on a whistle. No prey drive -good basics. He responds very well to the positive reinforcement methods used in his current home|
Other Comments: Messi is crate phobic so cannot be put in a crate as he will panic -his early experience of life was not good, though he is a much loved pet in this, his 2nd home. Absolutely loves the beach and water games.
New owners: We are looking for a family with older, dog savvy children. Messi is over attached to his female owners and we think a family of footballers would be perfect for him. His current owners are very keen that he should have the space he is used to, both indoors and outdoors.
