|Home needed||Active, no cats or small furries|
Buster is a 4 yr old Labrador Collie mix. He came into our care due to his owner sadly passing away and there were no family members able to take him in. As you can see he is hugely overweight at a whopping 54.5 kg, so it is safe to say this chap loves his food! Any family looking to adopt him must be very active and committed to his ongoing weight loss, as he needs to shed around 20 kg. Buster is quite shy and aloof to start with, so he needs to be given the time and space to build trust on his terms. Once trust is established, he is very affectionate. He is playful and loves his toys, especially a tennis ball. He has displayed signs of guarding his bed so any potential adopter must demonstrate knowledge and understanding of this behaviour. He is exceptionally strong on the lead at times, and can be quite headstrong and stubborn. He would not be able to live with cats or small furries. He has not shown any reaction to other dogs, however careful introduction to any dog he will be socialising with is essential. He could possibly live with dog-savvy children over the age of 10 yrs.
