PROFILE

**BUZZ IS AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION**

Buzz is a 4-year-old Patterdale X Staffordshire Terrier.

Buzz is looking for an experienced owner.

He is a very high energy dog and when exploring new places, Buzz likes to sniff everywhere he can and runs from one end to the other. Training sessions will need to be short and varied to keep his attention as he is easily distracted.

He takes treats nicely, and is not a hugely treat-orientated dog. Buzz enjoys toys, in particular tennis balls/raggers/flirt poles. Buzz has very poor recall, and knows only the basic command 'sit' so the new owner will have to continue training with him.

Buzz can be very aloof with people when out and about we have found that when in Reception if you sit on the floor with him on a sheet/duvet he will come for a fuss. In particular he loves his belly being rubbed and the top of his tail.

Buzz is a sweet dog, who unfortunately just has not been exposed to many stimuli throughout his life. As a result of this he can become over stimulated and hyper-frustrated very quickly. He requires lots of mental and physical activities to keep him busy and lower his frustration level.

Buzz will need some work on house training as well and he does struggle to settle.

Buzz’s new owners will need to be patient with him and slowly expose him to new stimuli and take it at Buzz’s pace. We think it will be best for Buzz to be the only pet in the home and he could live with children aged 14+.

If you are interested in adopting Buzz please contact the centre at info@rspca-preston.org.uk to request an application form.
