Louie is a 2 year old, male Cocker Spaniel
A description from Louie's past family..
Louie is a pure bred golden English Cocker Spaniel who has been bred from top show dogs - one from France (http://domainedesmatalis.
He is a very happy and playful wee dog who loves balls, Frisbees, walks, and swimming (loves the water). I have put a lot of work in with Louie and as a result is very well trained as he will do anything for food. He is great on the lead and can be let off and controlled with your voice easily. He absolutely loves other dogs and it was very evident from a pup he was a dogs dog not a people dog. He is also crate trained so very easy to travel with.
Why is he being rehomed?
We have made the hard decision to rehome Louie due to our changing family situation and his behaviour around strangers. Louie is a great dog who we love to bits and is very affectionate with people he knows and trusts however is very uncertain around some people he meets and when getting patted occasionally growls at them to tell them that is enough. He has never bit anyone or even made an attempt to snap however this has been an on going behaviour we have noticed since he was a pup and we have a very large and very sociable family.
We have put in a lot of time and effort with Louie to stop this behaviour however as we are now beginning our own family and as I am out of town more and more for work we do not believe we are able to do this effectively anymore. This is a heart breaking decision to make but we love Louie and he is a great dog so deserves a great family.
As of 16/01/2017
Louie is living with his current owners while we look for the perfect home. He hasn't come to stay with us just yet. What usually happens when we are responsible for rehoming a dog is that the dog comes to stay with us while we work on their behaviour
