Calm & Sensible
Large Bull Arab X
Riddick is a deaf, desexed, 5.5yo BA x (approx 32kgs) who has absolutely thrived in care with one of our amazing trainers these last few weeks! Riddick also has heterochromia but does not have any sight issues.
It was clear when he came into care that he was once very loved.. He is doing really well, such a quiet and considerate boy with a beautiful soul. He walks well on a Halti and this will need to be continued in his new home. He knows: sit, drop, stay and ‘check in’ when walking, he LOVES to check in with his carer and is very enthusiastic! He loves to give you a really good ‘sit’ when waiting for doors to open which is very respectful and to be expected from this gentleman. He has progressed with his other signs, lead training and going on bush walks and walks to anywhere with water - dam, beach, creek etc!
If left alone, Riddick mostly snoozes the day away, but it’s important he is provided with enrichment each day as well so he doesn’t become bored. This can look like using puzzle toys, Kong Wobbler, bones, kiddy pool with water or sand, lickimat or some durable chew toys. He hasn’t shown any separation anxiety either but would prefer someone to be home more often than not if possible.
He would be fine with an older, very independent female dog who isn’t a fan of playing too much, if at all, as he enjoys his own space too. A calm dog that is not in his face and just wants her own space, or he’d be absolutely amazing as a solo dog too! Riddick is also good with cats with slow introductions to begin with and ability to separate a must. Unfortunately, no pocket pets sorry!
He is such a sensible, calm fellow who loves his humans SO much. A retirement home where he can be inside and outside wherever his family is would be his idea of heaven! He’d love to accompany you to the beach, to the bush, anywhere with water! Riddick loves open spaces so somewhere with a yard or opposite an oval, bush, creek or park would be in his best interests but not essential.
LAST WORD FROM HIS CARER…
This boy deserves the very best forever retirement home! He would love to be a companion for a single person, family with teenagers or a retired couple looking for a mate. He will need ongoing training and of course, all the love in the world! He’s a very special boy who has made a lasting impression on his foster carer for sure
