Colin is a gorgeous 3-4 month old male Belgian Shepherd Cross. He and his sister were found in a small village in Northern Spain before he came into our care. His sister has been rehomed and we hope that Colin will also find soon his new forever home. In the meantime, he is in foster care in Spain and enjoying the funny and lovely moments, making mischief, and growing into a happy and carefree puppy.
Colin is for his age a calm puppy at home. He is great with other dogs and very playful. He has also been tested with cats and was fine. Colin will become a large-sized dog when fully grown. We expect him to be around 25kg, but that isn’t a guarantee and means he can also become larger. Like typical for his breed, he is becoming a young super bright, and intelligent boy. He therefore absolutely requires someone with experience with complex breeds.
Colin is a dog who at a young age will need guidance and support to develop into a well-adjusted youngster and adult. In the right environment and with the right experience, he has the making of a star. But, as is the case with intelligent dogs, the opposite is true too. He could become guarding and protective of his home and people if he feels his person needs protecting and lacks confidence.
Colin loves being outside and is very energetic, he will need an active family who will be able to offer him a variety of outdoor pursuits to build his confidence and to keep his working dog brain engaged. He loves playing with toys and the other dogs at his foster home and once he knows you he is a cuddly, excitable pup.
We are looking for an adult-only home, as we want dogs who require more time like himself to be the priority. We are also looking for stability, maturity, and solid experience with complex breeds. We are looking for people who are into the outdoors, go on different adventures at the weekends for example, and generally want to explore the world with their dog(s).
It would be helpful and also great for him to have a further dog companion at home, but that is not a necessity, as long as he has opportunities to socialize with other dogs on a daily base. He has a very energetic play style so it would need to be a dog with a similar play style and energy level.
Colin is currently in Spain and ready to England and Wales (NOT Scotland) as soon as the right family/person comes forward he could join his family in September when he becomes old enough to travel.
If you have the experience, time, love, stability, and commitment that his upbringing requires and think that Colin would be the perfect addition to your family, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
Please take into account that we will only consider adult and dog-experienced homes that already had or currently have a complex breed at home.
