Gatsby ..we are currently taking no further enquires

This is Gatsby, a 6 month old puppy who is now in our care. We believe that Gatsby is a German Shepherd/Ridgeback cross and he will grow to be a big and powerful dog. He is very happy with humans, but has not had a lot of contact with other dogs although he does not react to them while he is out walking. He has no great interest in playing with other dogs so he would probably be best going to either a dog free home or a home with a quiet dog… a meet and greet would be required if there is already a dog in his potential home. He has learned to walk on a lead, but typically of a puppy he tends to weave a bit when walking. He is not yet house trained, and we would recommend to anyone who would consider adoption that they should attend puppy training classes with him because a dog of this breed mix needs to be trained properly from the outset to ensure that you have a happy, well behaved and well adjusted dog. He is very affectionate with humans and really loves attention. He is not house trained. We do not recommend Gatsby to a home with children under the age of ten as he is still inclined to nip, as puppies do. He is chipped (972274000277171, origin Ireland), has had his first vaccination, and will be neutered. His second vaccination will be covered by the kwwspca if taken to a vets with whom we have an account unless the vaccination can be given before he goes to his new home. We invite application from people who have previous adult experience of larger dogs. If you are interested in adoption please email to request a pre adoption form. We ask for a minimum adoption donation of €150 to partly offset our veterinary costs, a licence and collar tag will be required, and a secure garden is essential Please do not apply if you do not reach all of the criteria listed as you will be wasting both your time and ours.
