7-12-18 Chivers  very handsome boy but completely overwhelmed to find himself he and  just lays in his bed at the back of kennels at the moment.  He has spent his life in kennels and never seen the outside world so is finding this very scary at the moment but he is ok to pick up. Chivers will need at least one gentle and kind dog in his new home to help his confidence with people and who he cab watch and copy to learn about house training.  These things will take time but if you have the patience and understanding he needs he will repay you tenfold.  Chivers has a passport.

14-12-18 UPDATE
Chivers is the most scared dog we have had for a long time, love him. He flinches and shakes with human contact but seems happy in the house thank goodness!
He was put in the huge crate in the middle of our living room with us and the other dogs milling around it 24/7 and he coped fine seemed happy enough but did not  move a muscle all night! I popped a piece of scampi in to him  when my lot where having a piece last night,  and he did not touch it,  instead he hid it under his chin ! I removed eventually .
We moved him late last night to another really big crate by the one he had been in,  for overnight sleeping ( as the the one he was in earlier is " IF ONLYS "  crate for overnight sleeping )
He was totally happy in it all night , and so we fed our lot this morning and we popped some of his food in a bowl in his crate and left the room, and he ate it so yayyy for that !
Took him out of crate to garden this morning  to see if he would wee at least,  and saw he had already toileted in the crate.
He lay in garden in a heap shaking so we took him back in and bathed him as his back end was dirty then took him back into living room and put him in a cubby hole under a built in desk which all the dogs love and he's now snoring his head off !
He's going to take a bit of time and working with to try and help him function normally at least a bit! But for now he's eating and sleeping

Wow ! What a brave boy this is ! In kennels he was shut down not moving  from his bed all day and when he was carried out to the excerise yard and put on the ground he would not move  , just petrified and the kennel staff were so very sad for him,  but since being here he has blossomed quicker than we could of dreamt of !  This boy is a darling so sweet natured,  really pushing himself to watch you and then sneak closer tail wagging desperate for love,  bless him . We can now stroke him a little , sometimes he visibly cringes when you stroke his body , he does let us pick him up but is worried when you do,   so we only do this when we need to until he's more settled  . He sleeps all night quietly in his  crate in the same room with all his mates . He is very good for toileting going out when the others do , he is still now and then marking in the house but day by day this is diminishing and I'm sure he will stop in time . There is nothing hard about this boy but he has lived 8 long years as a stud so will need another dog or several to live with . He is very friendly with all dogs , Male,  female big or small and cats . He would be terrified of small children so an adult home is needed for him and someone home most of the time to be able to consistently build trust and a bond with him . We are always smiling when this boy trots around as he's a lovely  boy , and its wonderful to see him galloping round the garden so happy now .We love this sweet boy , and he deserves his forever home as soon as possible

 

PLEASE NOTE: We nearly always home dogs who have come from breeders where there is ALREADY A RESIDENT DOG living in the house. They have usually never lived in a house before and are only used to canine company. They usually get their confidence and learn faster with another dog to copy from. This also helps with house training and learning how to walk on a lead. They will make lovely pets but do need a lot of love, time and patience. If the ex breeding dog you are interested in can be an only dog it will say so in its write up. Please read our information on ADOPTING EX-BREEDING DOGS before you apply.
