Cockapoo

1 post in this topic

I am currently fostering a young Cockapoo dog. The reason for him coming to me is that his dad died a short while ago and his mum has terminal cancer. The couple took him in as a rescue from a home where he was not wanted once children arrived.

Baxter is male (neutered) 4 years old. He has a very loving nature and want nothing more than to be fussed all the time. This means that he finds it hard to cope if left but that can worked on. It would be better if the new owners were around most of the day. He gets on well with other dogs. Like many of his breed he is a bit possessive over his toys. He can be fed among other dogs though. He is quite good on the lead if a little enthusiastic when first leaving the house :) Recall is excellent. He has had a few issues with people doing things to him. In particular he does not like having his feet wiped. I think that someone has lost patience with him in the past. His nature is so nice that I am sure that, with patience and time he would come to accept it.

He is used to sleeping on the bed, with his owner, but he is now settled in a crate in the bedroom at night. I will be gradually moving him towards the door over time.

I only wish I could keep him, but along with him came two nine year old dogs that would be much harder to rehome than him.

Below is Baxter on the first day we had him when he had to attend a Scent Work course with my other dog. He showed great promise!
