Say hello to the highly affectionate, extremely photogenic bundle of puppy energy, Eddie. He is 7 months old and a medium mixed breed dog. His mum was a Jack Russell cross, but Eddie has grown to be a strapping boy with gorgeous caramel and white colouring and is approx 18kg’s. His father is an unknown, but the pound made a guess when he was a pup that perhaps he was a Mastiff, and that is depicted on his paperwork.

Eddie is a highly energetic boy who loves to be near his people. He also adores his foster brother and plays with him at every opportunity. They have been caught snuggling in a kennel together most evenings. Eddie will definitely need an active family who will take him on big walks and adventures and another dog for company. He will also need to be enrolled in a good manners training class. He is desperate to please and responds well to food rewards. He is crate trained at night and does a great job sleeping through the night with no accidents.

Eddie has lived with small children, but his energy levels would best be matched with kids over 8, who are confident with his exuberance. If he had an owner who could safely take him to work, that would probably be his idea of heaven. Eddie needs some reassurance when meeting new dogs until he realises they are not going to eat him. This will come good with some consistent socialisation and training.

Our lovable Eddie is a sweet dog who just needs someone willing to show him the do’s and don’ts of appropriate behaviour, with patience and consistent reinforcement. What you will get in return is a loyal and loving companion. His black lipped smile is just the icing on the cake!

Eddie is currently in care in Salamander Bay and is available for adoption interstate. If you would like to meet him contact his carer Lauren at hitthesand@hotmail.com

Eddie’s adoption fee is $450. He is desexed, vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms, microchipped, and lifetime registered.
