Foxy is a gorgeous, affectionate shepherd cross from Bosnia. Foxy arrived in the UK at the end of 2017 and sadly did not settle well in his first home. Foxy lacks emotional control and can get overexcitable and nip his handlers, unfortunately his owners did not feel experienced enough to give him the training he needs.
Foxy loves to go on walks and have a good sniff but needs practice on the lead. He loves nothing more than a stuffed kong and is food orientated. Foxy is intelligent and quick to learn, picking up commands very quickly. He can be nervous around traffic and needs some positive reinforcement training to help him grow in confidence.
Foxy is good indoors but needs to learn how to play as he can get carried away. He needs a firm, experienced owner who can teach him what is acceptable and not. He will make a great dog with the right guidance, training and owner.
Foxy loves to be around other dogs and we believe a multi dog house hold or at least one other is key. He would be suited to a rural or semi-rural environment with experienced owners.
Foxy is an excellent dog and would make a great family pet given the right training. If you are interested in rehoming or fostering Foxy, please get in touch!
