Little bit about Russel

Hi everyone!

My name is Russell and aren't I a handsome lil' fello'! If you are looking for a distinguished gentleman to join the family, look no further!

I'm a little ball 'o' fun that loves a good run around a paddock and to play with my toys. I'm the goodest boy and know how to sit for treats. I can smash out a kong in my down time and have lots of fun opening enrichment puzzles.

I would do best in a household where everyone is over 15, and would love to meet everybody in my new family before going home with you to make sure I will be a good addition. I can get a bit overwhelmed at times especially in a new environment and will need my new family to be understanding of when to give me some space. My own little special cozy spot in your house will be great for this, and maybe even in a nice warm sunny spot for me to snoozy in comfort.

I am happiest being the only dog in the household because I get a little too excited around other dogs, so I would rather you all to myself but I've had a few social walks so there's potential for me to have a walking buddy in the future once I'm all settled in your home. Please allow me indoor and outdoor access that way I can spend lots of quality time with my family indoors and have my me time in either the garden doing all the exploring or in my cozy corner napping away the days.

If I sound like the perfect dog for you please come and meet me at the shelter!

My restrictions:

-Experienced owner

-No kids under 15.
