Large Male Maremma Sheepdog Mix Dog
- Rescue group:
- Animal Welfare League NSW - Kemps Creek Shelter
- PetRescue ID:
- New South Wales
With his flowing white coat and friendly face, Loki is certainly a creature to behold! A Maremma Sheepdog by name, this boy is not a typical example of his breed.
The Maremma is bred to live amongst sheep and protect them from predators, a dutiful sentry with a deep resounding bark to alert his flock to danger. While Loki would certainly enjoy the rolling green hills and fresh air of a country farm, you would more likely find him frolicking and exploring in the grass than lying in watch over the land. Young and spirited, this pooch won't be tied down to a 'job', and is seeking an active family who can understand his need for fun and adventure.
Loki would do best with plenty of space to expend his energy and indulge his senses, so a large backyard or rural property would be perfect. That said, this boy is not a "backyard" dog to be left to his own devices; Loki loves to play and hang out with his human pals, so his ideal human will have lots of time to dedicate to their new canine. Affectionate and sociable, Loki would love to be invited inside for quality family time, and with ongoing training will be the perfect house guest in no time. Loki isn't too keen on making other canine friends, preferring all of the human attention for himself, so he cannot go home with another dog. Livestock and other pets should be no problem, provided introductions are slow and comfortable for everyone involved.
Though someone with Maremma breed experience would certainly be able to understand and provide for this boy, we think Loki's cheeky and warm character will appeal to all kinds of people. If you have the space and time to commit to training and caring for a handsome young Maremma, Loki might be your boy! He looks forward to meeting you at the shelter.
