Update on Fudges assessment from his fosterer:
He is walking well on the lead and doesn’t pull as much since using the harness. He is not so reactive to other dogs although he does sometimes react if he sees a dog in the distance. Recall is still a work in progress but he is improving. He is easily distracted by scents and will follow his nose rather than listen.
Overall fudge is a work in progress and with time and commitment he will be a fantastic dog for somebody.
Where to start with Fudge? He’s such a contradiction. He’s a lovely cuddle monster in the house and turning into a lunatic outside.
Fudge behaves really well in the house he has slept all night either in a bed downstairs in the lounge or on the sofa. He does bark when someone comes to the door but soon quietens. He has got on reasonably well with our resident dog although he has gone for a visiting ex foster both inside and out but after the initial confrontation he settled quite well. He has no obvious guarding issues and will give up toys etc. He hasn’t had much contact with children although he did snap at my grandson last week (we put it down to so much going on. …but it wasn’t a good sign)
Fudge pulls on the lead but we have had him on a harness which is working a bit better. He walks well with a halti or figure of eight lead. He lunges at passing dogs although mostly to say hello but in some cases he his reactive and screams and barks until they have passed. We haven’t let him off the lead as his recall is poor but he will bring a ball straight back. We have exercised him on a long lead when we can.
Fudge would be better as an only dog and child free. He would be happy with someone who can stimulate him ie agility or Cani or as a possible working dog. He is nose down sniffing. He needs an experienced owner who can get the best out of him.
