Adopt a Dog


Age: 2

Breed: Cockapoo

Vaccinations: Up to date

Suitable environment: Adult Only Home, Dog Friendly, Not tested with Cats


Bertie, a 2 ½ year old chocolate Cockerpoo, has a big heart and a big character. He’s generally a happy, loving chap who adores other dogs. However, his play can get boisterous, so he needs gentle guidance to prevent overexcitement. His adorable mannerisms, like tilting his head when listening, add to his charm. While he’s improving on recall in secure settings, he’s better off on a lead or long line due to his tendency to chase anything that moves.

Health & Behaviour

Under his previous fosterer’s care, Bertie has made remarkable progress, retrieving balls and learning boundaries in the house. He has some resource guarding issues that will need continual training and patience are key to building trust with him. He seems to take instruction better from men and is in good health.

Perfect Match?

Bertie requires an experienced owner who can provide firm guidance, especially with his guarding issues regarding toys or items he shouldn’t have. While he doesn’t guard food, he’s highly motivated by treats. A home without young children is essential, and an active household would suit best. Bertie can live with other dogs.
