Trey came into our care as a stray and is now looking for his furever home! This sweet guy loves spending time with people and getting lots of scratches and cuddles. His new family will need to work on his mild separation anxiety, Trey loves attention and will let you know when he isn’t getting enough. Once he is content, he will lay on his bed and take a nap. He loves going on on walks but can be a strong puller and will need a strong human to take him on and work on leash training. Trey is getting used to walking on a Halti and walks amazingly! Trey can be jumpy and mouthy when he is excited to see you, so his family will need to teach him some manners. Luckily, he is a smart boy and loves treats, so training will be easy. Because he can be vocal when alone, he would do best in a house with no shared walls.
Trey is very strong and excitable and would do best in a home without small children or elders. Trey is good with other dogs and could go to a home with another canine friend. He has a high prey drive and would not do well in a home with cats or other small animals. Due to his breed and some mild skin irritation, we believe that he may have food sensitivities. He is currently on a limited ingredient diet.
Do you think you could be Trey’s person? Here are some ways to find out:
1.) Visit our centre to meet this pet during adoption viewings Friday to Tuesday noon to 3pm, learn more about their ideal match, and apply to adopt in person; or
2.) Submit an online application adopt.spca.bc.ca and staff will contact the first suitable adopter to set-up a visit! Kindly note that due to the high number of applications and the availability of walk-in adoptions an online applicant would have to be available to come in for a meet within 24 hrs.
