Wiggles is a very gentle but very anxious and stressy boy. He is very social with other dogs but is not keen on men and needs to be clipped under sedation. Wiggles is happy and friendly with women and likes to have his humans around a lot of the time. He does not cope being left in a small cage. Wiggles can get reactive at fences when people or other dogs are on the other side. He has a non-shedding coat and weighs 4.5kg.
Apartment Friendly: Could cope in an apartment environment. Regular walks or use of an artificial grass patch is suggested.
Adult Home: Nervous or not tolerant of children. And/or too high a level of excitability for children to control.
Home Based Worker or Doggie Pal: Unable to cope alone and has shown signs of separation anxiety. Needs human company or other dog pals.
RESCUE EXPERIENCE: Many people grow up with, or own a dog who has had no bad experiences in life. A dog who is confident and well rounded. However, many rescue dogs have not been as lucky in their lives.
Unfortunately, some rescue dogs have been physically abused, neglected and left traumatised. These dogs need someone with previous rescue experience in rehabilitating traumatised dogs with an in depth understanding of and experience in building relationships with these kinds of dogs.
Wiggles comes desexed, C5 vaccinated, heartworm free and microchipped. Also included for the love and health of our doggies, is a free Health and Wellness Voucher with our DR Vet .
DoggieRescue is a charitable organisation and as such we rely very much on volunteers to manage our adoptions. We answer initial adoption enquiries by email or phone and then arrange an appointment for you to meet some of our rescue dogs.
At DoggieRescue we believe our dogs deserve to find that special someone who will love them and look after them forever. We know that there are homes out there that are willing to accommodate one more little member of the family and dedicate time to their well being.
