Eddie is about a year old, Mastiff x Staffy we think

His foster mum says:
“He is super affectionate and adores being with people. He will follow you around the house and garden but equally happy to chill when you chill. At bed time he happily jumps into his bed and settles down all night. He is a pretty silent doggo at the mo, hasn’t made a peep, only heavy breathing when he gets excited and pulls on the lead. Without the distractions of interesting things he is good on the lead keeping some slack.

Did I mention he LOOOVES humans, makes it his mission to say hi to every single person he passes!”

Eddie has been good with the other dogs he has met, after the initial excitement on the approach he just sniffs and is friendly.
He really does like a LOT of human attention though so might do better where he is the only dog, though this is just a guess.

More from Eddie’s foster mum:
“Eddie has met a cat on his adventures, Meh wasn’t too bothered just had a look and went on, so could probably share a home with a cat.”

“Eddie is very energetic and excitable while playing in the garden and needs some training to set limits. He tends to jump and play bite and does not realise his strength so would not be suitable for a house with young children.”

“Responsive to training but will need some patience and persistence and he will be just the sweetest (and most handsome) doggo!”

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

Eddie has been de-sexed, has had his first vaccination, is 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.
