Theo ~ 2 Years ~ West Highland Terrier
Meet Theo! This handsome boy is looking for a FOREVER home as he has been rehomed three times already in his young life. Theo needs a child-free family where he is the only pet and where his "Westie-tude" is understood and appreciated. As a high energy breed, he needs an active human companion who can drain his brain and his physical need to move. A fenced yard would be ideal for Theo so he has lots of opportunities to run and play in addition to his daily walks. Due to his prey drive he is not suited for a home with cats or critters either.
Theo is housetrained and well-mannered in his home. He is familiar with basic commands, and though he can pull on leash, it is manageable and he is easily corrected. He is happy to meet and greet other dogs on walks, but due to his possessive nature of his beloved humans, he really does need to be the solo canine in his happily-ever-after home.
Theo does have a tendency to resource guard his toys and treats, and he will need a human who is committed to understanding and working on improving this behaviour with him by setting firm rules, boundaries and limits around his food and high valued items.
Theo has been moved so much in his young life that he needs someone willing to build a trusting relationship with him where he feels safe, confident and loved. Attending training classes with him would be an excellent way to strengthen the understanding and bond with a dog like Theo, and he would most definitely thrive in high energy activities such as agility training to help keep him in balance.
As a hypoallergenic breed, Theo will require regular grooming to keep his coat fresh and mat-free.
