George (South East Dog Rescue, Kent)
14/10/20 – Gorgeous George has been rehomed. Wonderful news!
George is a lovely Lab X Staffy boy of 9 years in foster care through South East Dog Rescue (SEDR) in Greenhithe, Kent. He was finding life with 3 boisterous children a bit much so, very reluctantly, his owner decided he needed to find a quieter retirement home. Not that he’s over the hill yet. Life is for fun!
George is a very bright boy and would like to tell you about himself in his own words. He says, “I am a delightful older gentleman. I still love my walks and get very excited when my foster mum gets my harness. In fact, I jump up and lose my inhibitions a bit, so you might want to work with me to help me become a little less enthusiastic!
“Once I have my harness on, I like to make sure that we get to the park as quickly as possible, so expect me to pull like a steam train! Choo choo!! However, my foster mummy says that I will ‘wait’ when asked to during a walk, so this is definitely an area of training which can be worked on.
“I have not lived with dogs previously and due to the fact that I would like a quiet home, I would prefer to be an only dog in my new home. Whilst I have not met any dogs in my foster home, I have walked past other dogs without any issues. My previous owner says that I am very well-socialised with other dogs and am happy to have a natter at the park. However, I do expect other dogs to treat me with respect (I am a gentleman, after all), so if a dog is too forward or rambunctious, I will let them know.
“Although I have been good with children in the foster home, I was becoming immensely shut down with demanding children in my previous home. Therefore, my friends at SEDR feel that as I have had fearful experiences with children (and now that I’m in my twilight years), it would be appropriate for me to live with older children only (if any).
“I do like to chase kitty cats so unfortunately I cannot live with cats or small furries. I am fully house-trained and have shown no signs of separation anxiety in my foster home. I have no current or past medical issues. If I do say so myself, I am a well-rounded boy who will slot into the right home for my needs. I still love my walks and adventures each and every day!”
