About Spot:

Spot is a medium-sized, male Heading Dog X, aged 8 years old.


Spot has been living on a lifestyle block but due to owner moving overseas he needs a new home. He is desexed.
Would be best suited where he is the only dog so he gets full attention but is okay with other dogs (better with females) and cats. He is ok around kids, but doesn’t like his face to be grabbed so a home with older children would be more suitable. Spot used to be a working heading dog so can be trusted around stock, however he does still think he’s working so barks at stock occasionally.

Is Spot used to children? No.
Is Spot used to cats? Yes.
Is Spot toilet-trained? Yes.
Is Spot used to stock? Yes.
Is Spot used to chickens? Yes.
How well does Spot get on with other dogs? OK.
Spot lives in Apiti, North Island.
A bit about Spot’s personality:

Spot is such a loyal loving boy who adores cuddles, kisses and ALLLLL of the attention.
