Gomez is sweet boy, looking for a quiet home with experienced, understanding owners that are at home with him initially whilst he gets used to his new surroundings. Potential adopters should be prepared to commit to multiple visits so that Gomez can build a bond with them before he goes home. 

Gomez is becoming more affectionate the more he gets to know his carers here. He is unsure when meeting new people so will need a quiet home without too many visitors. He can give off mixed signals initially, so will need owners that are able to read his body language and ensure he isn’t put in situations that make him uncomfortable. In the home, Gomez will need time to come around in his own time – once he knows you, he loves to be groomed and will pay for more! 

Walking areas will need to be quiet for Gomez. He can get stressed by dogs and people that he doesn’t know and though he walks nicely most of the time, he can bark and lunge when worried. Gomez would love a secure garden to call his own so that he can have a safe space to relax, as well as visits to rented paddocks so that he can have a proper zoom around. 

Gomez is very under socialised with other dogs. He has met a few here with us but is very vocal and full on, so not many cope with his greeting. With careful introductions to the right dog, Gomez could have friends to walk with, but he will need to be the only pet in the home. 

Gomez can live with adults only. He will make a wonderful, rewarding companion in time.
