Sign training help for Gromit

Gromit, a young bulldog cross, has been residing at the charity’s Angus rescue and rehoming centre for 136 days but so far has attracted very little interest.

Rachael MacLean, regional operations lead (North East Scotland), said: “The team have been working on Gromit’s training and have even implemented some sign language training which he loves!

“He is very food-orientated and loves to learn. Gromit has daily walks with other dogs and is enjoying their company, but he can get quite strong on the lead, especially if he wants to play with another dog. He may well benefit from living with another dog as long as they can cope with his boisterous and playful nature.

“Gromit loves to play and have fun. This big bouncy boy doesn't realise his size sometimes and can be a bit of a bulldozer but he never fails to put a smile on all our faces with his funny antics. Due to his background, he also hasn't seen much of the outside world so he needs somebody to help build his confidence and keep him on the right track.

“Gromit would prefer an adult-only home where he has access to his own secure, private garden so he can have safe off-lead time to explore. He is a fantastic dog and would make someone a very lucky owner!”
