4 years, Male, Medium Mixed Breed (Collie size)
Nacho is a beautiful soul once he knows you. He walks on a lead well and is an active collie type that needs an active owner to wear him out. He is incredibly intelligent and picks up training within seconds!
He can play mouth when excited and he is frightened of new people. Nacho can bark at new people and is very worried about making friends. He needs multiple meets to accept a new person as a friend. We are ideally looking for someone with reactive dog experience, is a trainer looking for a new project or someone that is willing to take on a little more of a challenge.
Nacho needs training sessions with a positive reinforcement trainer when he is settled into the home. Staff are happy to advise and offer lots of support but the adopter will need to be open to seeking training.
Nacho's adoption will take longer than your average adoption as we need to show him that you are not a scary person and you are not going to hurt him; due to his abusive past he does not know that the people he is around nowadays just want to be friends... Nacho will be a project but the love he will give you when he trusts you will be so much more meaningful than you can imagine.
