Meet Farley *updated Bio*
Are you looking for a sidekick on the couch who loves to relax? Do you need a goofy gentleman who is all about belly rubs? Look no further, Farley is here! Farley was recently in an adoptive home in the city where he found all of the noises, people and animals were far too over-stimulating for this once rural fellow. Farley needs a home in a quiet neighbourhood with yard access. Apartment living is not suitable for this boy.
Farley is well trained in the house and has great manners. When it’s not walk time or dinner time, he can be found sprawled out having a snooze or snuggling with the nearest humans.
He loves walks, treats, and receiving affection. This sweet boy does get incredibly vocal towards other dogs on walks (he wants to go play!) and is currently on impulse control medication to help manage this behaviour. He is showing great improvements and is learning proper manners when meeting and greeting. He is very strong and will need continued work with a head-halti and desensitization exercises.
Farley would love a home with a yard to play in and people to cuddle with. He is currently being fostered in Vancouver and looks forward to meeting his perfect match!
