1-2 year old male Cross-Breed available for adoption


Biffy is a 1-2 year old male Cross-Breed. He is an awesome, kind and friendly young boy. He is medium to large size : around 28 kilos. LOCATION : Scarborough 3AL. He arrived to UK as a puppy ,more than 6 months ago. Current family loves BIFFY, but due to change in their work schedule and due to his food guarding (even if it is very mild), what they considered as not safe having young kids around they took a sad decision to rehome BIFFY.

BIFFY is a young and active boy, who loves and needs his walks and exercise. He already has a lot of skills, but will only benefit from further training, especially socialisation with the other dogs, as the current family preferred just to avoid meeting other dogs, what doesn’t really benefit BIFFY’s socialisation. BIFFY will perfectly suit as a single dog in active family, preferably in countryside or quiet place without kids or with kids over 10-12 years old, who learn to keep the boundaries when dog is eating or sleeping.

Biffy is a huge part of our family. Re homing him will leave a massive hole in our lives. I never thought I would have to be this person but it just goes to show how hard rescuing is. We are devastated but feel we have done our best. Biffy is a beautiful dog. He gets so many compliments on walks. He is starting to walk well on his Halti head collar without pulling. This could obviously be changed with the correct training. He is reactive to other dogs sometimes but is learning to walk past them without bothering. It’s a slow process but he’s getting there!

He’s good off the lead in areas with no one around. But he’s never met another dog or human while off the lead so this would need to be thought about. When he knows you he is your best friend. He’s not constantly snuggly but comes to you for love and has no idea how big he is when he gets on your lap! He loves his food, toys and especially Buffalo Horns. Which are the one chew his can’t instantly break down! .

He loves the cat. Unfortunately she doesn’t love him. Although he loves my husbands 2 boys, I would not suggest a home with young children. If we didn’t have the kids we would not be re homing. Unfortunately Biffy snapped my husband last week. Very close to the youngest kids face. This was over treats and nothing more, but it’s something we obviously cannot risk. He has since gone for my husbands foot while he was stepping over him (behaviorist comment: the human should never step over the laying/sleeping dog and such reaction on sudden threat when dog sleeps is absolutely natural) .

He can be grumpy around food but is happy to be left eating in a separate room. Which is what we do with him and this works. Biffy seems to be sensitive to all sorts of stimulus. Little things put him on edge. We live in a quiet area and have a calm home. He definitely needs this. He is used to being left while we go to work. But I would like to see him go to someone that is around more and can adapt their life to suit his needs.

He learns things super quick. He can sit, give paw, lie down, up and speak. He sits are roadsides to wait to cross and will wait for a short period. That’s something that we practice regularly. It’s seems he’s more content when he can lay outside all day. Which he can only do on weekends when we are in all day. It would definitely be worth a new owner meeting Biffy first. He sometimes take some time to trust.” BIFFY has no known health issues; Not neutered. Full vaccination pack (rabies, DHLPP), microchipped.
