Whiskers had a very difficult start in life when found abandoned with his mum and siblings. The puppies weren't in good shape, and sadly one puppy didn’t make it. Thankfully Whiskers has always been a big, strong boy! Being part Podengo - he is full of fun but quite sensible for a pup his age and is laid back.
Whiskers can be a bit of a shy boy at first but once he knows you is very affectionate and playful. He loves to play with the volunteers at the shelter and the other dogs. He walks well on a lead and enjoys his walks.
Although Whiskers can be shy he definitely has a cheeky side! He enjoys stealing things around the kennel, and playing "catch-me". He has been known to run around the shelter with a work-glove or trash bag!
Whiskers is a gorgeous, friendly dog who would make an amazing family pet. If you are interested in rehoming Whiskers, please get in touch!
