Taylor D2023-42

  • Can be an only dog
  • Can live with other dogs
  • Dog savvy children
  • Patient owners who will give him lots of fuss and attention

Taylor is a 5 year old westie described by his foster mum as being great in the home. He is as cuddly as a westie can be. He especially likes lying as close to you as he can get and if you fall off the settee or bed then tough. He is really coming out of his shell and his cheeky side is emerging.

Vet history to be discussed.

He walks well on a lead and likes to say hello to other dogs.

In the home he is very food orientated and is excited when given his food or treats. He needs to be reminded of his manners around these and we would recommend a slow feeder .

Taylor loves to play with a ball or plush toy. He hasn’t yet got the hang of bringing them back but he is super happy when he has them. He likes to run around with the toys and you chase him however we are trying to discourage this as its not a good game to play especially if you need him to come to you quickly if there was an emergency and he thinks you’re playing.

He is far too interested in cats and if he sees one he wants to chase so we recommend a home with no cats.

He can be homed with sensible dog savvy children.

He has been left for short periods with the resident dogs and has been fine watching out the window and guarding the house till foster mum comes home.

Taylor is house trained if he is allowed regular access to the garden or taken on walks. He doesn’t however like to be shut out anywhere alone. So, if he goes to the garden the door needs to be left open or you have to go with him and hold his paw.

He currently sleeps anywhere he likes but the closer to his human the better.

He does get travel sick as he has not spent a lot of time in the car but as he gets more practice and learns he is going exciting places this will improve.

Taylor is such a good all rounder he could be homed as an only dog if owners around most of the time or with a playful resident dog. He needs some work on his basic training and enjoys going for walks but wont be climbing Snowden anytime soon.
