Hi, my name is Angus and I’m looking for my perfect snuggle buddy! I’m 9 years old but I like to think of myself as a “young 9” as I’m still very good at running. Though I’m thought to be a Jack Russel Terrier cross, I’m more like a Staffy size and have some staffy traits. I certainly know how to talk like a Staffy, often yodelling across the oval to new friends and telling you how much I like my pats.
I’m told I’m a very sweet and good boy, with beautiful brown eyes that like to stare at you and tell you how pretty you are. I like to think of myself as the perfect lap dog, big enough for a cuddle, small enough to fit on your lap on the couch. I’m very clever at sneaking under your arm and making sure I can give you a cuddle at all times, I’ll tell you I’m nice and comfortable with a couple of sighs to tell you how happy I am.
I would prefer to be an indoor dog, just so I can be sure to be keep you company, but am a good boy outside by myself during the day without digging. However I am a great escape artist and will need a secure yard. I like to be around you when ever I get a chance, I’m the perfect company, If you show me where my bed is I’m very happy to sit there and be in your company. I can sleep in my bed while you are cooking in the kitchen, give you a cuddle on the couch or sun-bake while you’re hanging out the washing. I am well behaved indoors during the day, I don’t have any interest in chewing any possessions and am toilet trained, but I can be a little cheeky and tuck myself in your bed while you’re away and wait for you to come home for a cuddle, so any doors to bed must be closed during the day.
I get very excited when I get to see you when I get home and a prone to jumping, because of this I’m not suitable to families with small children or if there is someone unsteady on their feet. I am also not suited to a house with cats, although I’m often not phased when in their company, I can get distracted when they start running and want to catch them. Of course, the most important thing to me, is being in a home with lots of cuddles and pats.
I have completed some training and am responding well to direction and socialisation. Although I get along very well with my foster brothers and am well behaved on the lead without pulling, I can get too excited when I’m near other dogs, this can sometimes be a little scary for other dogs as I like to pull towards them and try to be the boss. So I need to be reminded of my manners and need someone to put in some extra effort into my obedience training to make sure I’m I focus on walking rather than other dogs. I have been responding well to a choker chain and has been a great tool for me to be better behaved as well as frequent walks. I tend to like smaller dogs better than larger dogs and would suit a home that has no other dogs or a similar sized small dog to keep me company.
I am desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, up to date with my flea and worm treatments and to meet my new forever family.
