Dougal is a 10 month old Huntaway x boy.

He has a bubbly personality and is a lot of fun, he loves galloping around with a toy in his mouth and adores playing fetch.

He is an energetic dog who needs an experienced, confident owner who can carry on with the excellent training he has been given in his foster home. He already knows basic commands and is very people focused and keen to please but he missed out on training in his early life so has things to learn.

He is highly food focused and really loves toys so this will really help with his training. Dougal needs to work on meeting other dogs on lead, although he lives with another dog and they get on very well.

Dougal would be ok with a confident cat and proper introductions, he would also live happily with another female or steady male dog. He is currently excitable around farm animals although would be highly trainable in experienced hands.

Dougal loves anything soft and cuddly, blankets and soft toys are big favourites.

He’s a lively, energetic, lovely, loving boy and just needs someone to give him the boundaries he needs to be the great dog he can be.

As with all ARAN dogs, Dougal must sleep indoors and live inside the house with his family. He must never be kept chained up.

Dougal is de-sexed, vaccinated, microchipped and registered and is up to date with flea/worm treatments.

There is an adoption donation of $300.00 to help towards these costs.

Dougal is located in West Auckland.
