Pluto was found in Romania when he was around 8 months old and lived with his rescuer for almost 2 years, unable to find a home of his own. When Pluto's luck eventually changed and he was offered a home in the UK it sadly didn't work out as he was too overwhelmed and stressed by being close to a city centre.
In November 2016 Pluto relocated to Stoke on Trent with a long term foster family and then moved on to his current foster in April 2019 where he is doing really well!
Although Pluto is a work in progress, with the right environment and preparedness we feel he could overcome his anxieties and settle comfortably. Pluto is overall a calm and loving dog, but he will need an experienced owner who is prepared to give him the time and patience he needs to settle so that he doesn’t become overwhelmed, which can lead to fear aggressive behaviour.
Pluto has some very endearing character quirks- He stamps all four legs when he’s excited and will often sing for attention! He loves a fuss and is generally very friendly with people but he can take a while to trust strangers and be protective of his home and people.
Pluto would be best suited to a quiet adult only household without too many comings and goings. He could also benefit from sharing his home with another dog, preferably female.
