Hector: male dog to adopt

  • Hector

    4 years, Male, Large Mixed Breed (Lab size)

    Hector is a shy boy, once he gets to know you he's very loving and enjoys attention. He can be submissive and is worried that he's going to be manhandled or hit. At times if he is really worried he can do a nervous wee, it pains us to imagine what abuse he has been through to get to this stage.

    Hector can bark at new people and he can be flinchy if people move quickly. He needs a very patient and understanding owner that will take things slow with him to allow him to build up his confidence.

    Hector is doing well with his lead training and enjoys to go out for walks.

    When he gets used to a dog he does enjoy a good play but he can be a little wary of new dogs to begin with. He can be very full-on when playing which will overwhelm a quieter or elderly dog, if he were to live with another dog it would have to have energy levels and a play-style to match.

    Hector is a beautiful dog with lots of potential, in the right home he will be an active and playful boy.
