Alice was rehomed because she apparently fought with other dogs – it’s been just her and Spikey with me, and they play- no fights. She is the dominating one though. Loves to swim, in the pool almost every hour.

Absolutely the best with my 2 children (6 years and 2 years) – I trained them basic walking skills and to sit/wait and greet. She socialises well with other dogs- does growl at them at first but has her motherly instincts still in tact and very gentle. Will only fight is fought with.

Name: Spikey

Breed: Labrador

Age: 5

Sex: Male

Sterilised: Yes

Dewormed: Last had July 2016

Vaccinated: Yes

Healthy: Yes / Has a limp – was born with a broken foot apparently- I had a vet look at it, he suggested we leave the foot skew – because to break his foot at this age not a good idea. But we live on a hill- I think the limp actually got worse because of the uneven ground- would be ideal if he is rehomed on a flat piece of land- less strain on the foot.

On Medication: No – I give him vitamins for stronger bones.

Has any Diseases: No

Good with kids: Yes

Good with dogs: Yes. He apparently was fighting with the boxer

Good with cats: Not Sure

Good with domestic staff: Yes

Scared of storms: No

Spikey was rehomed with Alice- they apparently come from same parent- siblings. Grew up together.
He stole my sons heart. Knows basic training skills. He socialises well with other dogs, except for this boxer that keeps picking a fight – there are 3 other small dogs that he plays well with. Very Energetic- Loves to jump (even though he has a limp) and he has not lost the habit to chew shoes or toys yet – Alice collects an item out of the house takes it outside and Spikey chews it broken
