About me

I am the gorgeous Cheeko and I'm 7 years old.  I have been at the Centre for a number of years now and am a special boy looking for an extra special home.  Sadly I show signs of having harsh handling in my past and now I am very wary of people. It takes me a long time to build up a bond and trust someone so my new owners will need to do lots of visits so that I can get to know them.  I will need an adult only home with someone who leads a quiet life and who has experience of the large guarding breeds. I walk well on my lead, although I'm not overly impressed with rain!  I can have my stubborn moments but once I have a bond with you I can also be a big softy and enjoy having tummy rubs! I also like playing with toys and am good at bringing them back although if the sun is out, I'd rather sunbathe than do anything else!
