Meet Bugle who has just arrived in the UK having been rescued from a terrible shelter in Crete. He is a sweet natured lad who gets on well with other dogs.
He is adapting well to UK life. Everything is still a bit new for him, so he still needs time and consistency and will adapt well. He is a quick learner and is a kind soul.
Bugle is fully vaccinated, microchipped and neutered.
The decision to adopt a dog should not be taken lightly - we have had dogs returned as people have not been fully prepared for the hard work that can come. If you invest time and energy into the advice we give you, Bugle will adapt well. But please do not underestimate this can mean a few weeks of consistent work.
With the right boundaries and guidance he will easily adjust and make a great family pet. We ask our adopters to be 100% sure they are ready to commit to the training and hard work required.
Our foster home has provided the feedback below:

Bugle needs a home where someone is around most of the day and preferably with another dog to play with. If he was on his own he would need a playmate of some sort.

He is such a sweet dog and so ready for his forever family. He needs a loving household who will give him the time and love he needs and make him part of the family.
