Cillian is in a predicament and needs a new home with a little less social activity than his current home. He is about 18 mo. old, neutered, weighs about 55 lbs. and, best guess, is Cattle Dog/Kelpie. He’s located in Redwood City and here’s what his current guardians have to say about him:
Since he was adopted, Cillian has been living with an 11 & 13 yr. old and their parents. Every week he goes for a playdate to work out some of his boundless energy with other dogs. He always gets a good report from the staff and has fun playing with the other dogs. He has completed 2 obedience classes and knows how to sit, stay, lie down, shake and can even “fist bump”. However, his household is a very social one with people always coming and going. When he gets walked, Cillian sometimes strains at the leash and barks defensively to keep others away. He is very loyal to “his” people. He sometimes barks/pulls on his leash with some dogs as well, if they are on a walk. He has never been around cats but will chase squirrels.
Much as they love him, his owners realize he is never going to be the therapy dog they were looking for and would be better off in a new home that has a little less social activity going on. Cillian would love to be in a quieter home with experienced dog owners that have the patience and understanding he needs. Could that be you?
