Cashew is available for adoption through GSRE – this is what his current owner says about him.
Cashew is a 3-year 9-month-old, male, semi length coat, white German Shepherd cross Rottweiler. He is neutered (Feb 23), microchipped, vaccinated and worm/flea treated. He has no known food allergies. He had a lump removed from his armpit when he was a puppy (no further treatment required) but has no other disclosed medical issues. He wears a muzzle when visi1ng the vets. He has lived in his current home since he was around 1-year-old.
Cashew is being rehomed through GSRE as his current owner has a baby due and does not have the time to continue his training and address his protective behavioural issues in the home.
Cashew’s reaction towards children is unknown as he has not been exposed to them. He is selective towards other dogs but appears to be noisy and not aggressive. He has lived with two dogs before but ended up figh1ng with the male (possibly over the female) before both dogs were neutered. He is good with cats and currently lives with one without issues.
Cashew is currently left for up to 6 hours alone, four days a week and does not show any destructive behaviour. He is good at travelling in a car, crate trained, lives indoors and is fully housetrained. He is not comfortable when people visit the home and is described by his current owner as being very protective over it. He will snarl, lunge and mouth at people when they enter the home but has never bitten anyone. He will, however, ignore the postie!
Cashew Pulls on the lead to start with when taken for a walk, does not have a recall but does know sit and wait. Previously he has snapped at people removing his toys/food but his current owners have worked on this and he has moved forward, no longer doing this with them. He loves to cuddle on the sofa, sunbathe and play fetch.
When the GSRE assessor arrived to visit Cashew, he barked and jumped up at the stairgate that was across the door of his room, when they entered the house. His current owner was not comfortable lettng him into the house whilst the assessor was there, however, he settled quickly after their arrival. His owner said that he often barks for a long time after someone arrives and appeared to be behaving better than he normally did that day.
Cashew was put to sleep by his owner as a home wasn’t found quick enough. Sleep tight lovely boy, we are so sorry we could not help.
