Meet Timmy

Add to favourites

He’ll listen to Tim, Timothy, or Timmy, but likes it most when you call him handsome! This handsome fellow is on a mission to find a fur-ever family. Timmy is in need of an adult-only home where it is all about him. He is a SUPERSTAR when it comes to fetch and hopes his new owner has an endless supply to balls and a large yard to play in. You’ll often see him flying through the air to get the ball and he will happily bring it back and drop it at your feet for more.

Timmy does experience dog reactivity and it is imperative he finds an owner dedicated to working on it through positive reinforcement training. He is working on his basic cues and sometimes needs a few reminders, but is eager to learn and loves his treats. Due to his dog reactivity, a home that isn’t in a dog-filled neighbourhood would be best for him as he really struggles when he see’s other dogs, even from across the street. Tim really needs a patient person who understands dog reactivity to manage him appropriately and keep him feeling safe.

Timmy is currently eating a Hydrolyzed protein diet as a trial to help his itchy skin. Timmy will make a great companion for a dedicated person who wants to help him be the best version of himself.
