The lovely Corky is a 7 year old boy looking for his forever home. Corky is playful, affectionate and full of character. He will paw for strokes and grunt for attention, and loves nothing more than company and chasing his squeaky pheasant.
He’s incredibly responsive, be it calling him to his bed, away from the front door or to move from the sofa to his bed at night time. That said, he’s clever and stubborn when he wants to be! Cheese, sausages and roast chicken might not do it. But ultimately he wants to please so he will do as he’s asked.
He is fully house trained and, since arriving in his UK foster home, he has learned to sleep and go to his bed at night, walk on a lead and follow a routine. After a morning walk he will happily spend the day in his basket snoozing and listening to the traffic until his evening walk. He’s very good with all dogs (puppies through to big, less friendly dogs) and is always keen for a sniff and a wrestle if possible. If he meets a dog he’s unsure of he cowers rather than reacting.
Sadly, Corky has developed a fear towards men. He has been around men before, and has become good with them other time but initially, Corky can be very reactive towards men in his space and therefore needs a female only home, or an experienced couple who can help corky with his fears. He’s friendly with all people out of the house (in the park and even in pubs, shops and cafes!), and if unsure of something (eg someone with a trolley) he’ll cautiously watch rather than react.
He doesn’t like very loud noises – motorbikes, cars with loud exhausts, fireworks and will attempt to bolt home if he hears them so will need to be walked on a lead and long line in open spaces where this is a risk. If you meet the criteria above and would like to offer Corky a loving forever home, please do get in touch.
