Dave is a 2 year old Dogue de Bordeaux cross. He has been a much loved companion previously and very well cared for.
Dave has three legs but has been like this from birth due to a defect affecting his front leg meaning it had to be removed. He still gets around very well. He isn't a very confident boy so would prefer a home with teenagers and adults rather than younger children and an owner used to large breeds. Dave has lived with other dogs in the past but he again isn't very brave so he does careful handling around other dogs and further positive training and socialisation. If he was to live with another dog it would need to be a calm and confident female. Dave is very affectionate once he knows you and loves playing with his toys. He is clean in his kennel and is housetrained. He will make an owner who is used to large breeds a very rewarding companion.
Whenever dogs comes into our care they are assessed before they are adopted. This is because the majority of our dogs come from Local Authority pounds and with little or no previous history. This initial assessment period allows us to assess temperament, personality and the best match for a new home. We do not work on a first come first served basis but always strive to find the ideal home for each dog.
All Hope Rescue dogs are neutered, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and microchipped prior to adoption. A homecheck is required, and you will need to come along to the centre to meet the dog with your own dog(s) and family. Our adoption fee is £180.
