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.
