Meet Kirbey

Kirbey is still shy and cautious of strangers. He is perfectly fine with older kids but comfortable with small children and wont go near them. Carers sons are 9 and 11 and he plays really well with the boys, they chase each other, play ball, wrestle and have even been known to sneak him into bed with them to sleep So he can only go to a family with older kids. He is very affectionate, endearing and excitable. He walks exceptionally well on a lead and sits at curbside before crossing the road. He is a very energetic dog and needs to be walked daily - if not, he can become bored and will revert to puppy habits like chewing up the backyard. Whilst we don't have another dog, we have noticed he is scared and intimidated by other dogs when we walk him. Kirbey thinks he is a human and insists on people' chairs for sitting. He is an outside dog but is allowed inside and has his own rug next to the lounge and has been trained to understand on your rug as a command.

Kirbey was adopted on 21 August 2010 after 6 months in foster care
