Introducing...Juno! Juno is a large, friendly young Retriever cross Poodle looking for a home experienced with managing and training dogs with resource issues.
Juno is a friendly lad who isn’t used to being left alone and may be vocal and destructive when left, so is looking for an owner who has time and experience to support and train him using reward-based training methods.
Juno has a history of sometimes guarding his food, toys and confined spaces, such as a crate. He has also in the past displayed some barrier frustration behaviours; barking at people or dogs that are on the other side of a fence.
Juno is doing well with staff at the centre, loves attention and shows affection once he gets to know people. He will need ongoing management in place to help manage guarding behaviours. This may include using pet gates around the home to allow him access to safe areas, muzzling for vet visits and in busy public areas, and keeping him on lead when out on walks.
In our experience at the centre, Juno has good communication through body language and will show clearly when he is uncomfortable.
Due to his resource guarding, Juno cannot live with children or other pets.
Juno is most comfortable and relaxed when he has plenty of space around him, so he does not feel trapped or under pressure. He would be best suited to a spacious home with a large, enclosed garden.
