Meet Angus

Gentle, sweet, snuggly, affectionate aren't the sort of description people expect when they are considering owning a cattle dog.. but young Angus is all that and more... He is a lively little fellow who is proving to be a very quick learner. He recognised his name within hours of being named Angus, and has since proven to be obedient when called, responding well to sit and come as well as other commands. Angus is a smoochy boy who loves cuddles, being showered with affection and attention, and is looking for a home where he could come inside on a daily basis and enjoy the company of his humans. He likes to play with the other cattle dogs where he is living at the moment, and mixes well with dogs of all ages. He is a submissive boy when he is approached by other dogs, then comes out of his shell and enjoys play and banter with them. His current foster home has also afforded Angus exposure to the cats living there, and continued interaction with them should enable him to consider a home where there is a dog savvy cat. He likes to play with his toys, however would much prefer the company and play that comes from interaction with other dogs and would be best placed in a home where he has the company of another dog. Angus is still only a pup with much to learn from humans willing to continue teaching him, and would enjoy being part of an active family who will encourage him to direct his energy in a positive way, through play and exercise. If you are looking for a boy who loves to run and play but also settle down at night for cuddles with, then Angus could be the friend you have been looking for.
