Joe's CV: Hey, I’m Joe a 9 year old Golden Working Cocker. Until last month I lived on the remote West Coast. I miss the peace & quiet so thats why I am looking for a forever rural/and or quiet home. I do have good house manners, And i love a cuddle. I am exceptionally anxious and noise sensitive and react by barking at any time, but this is because i worry what the noises are.I am not used to loud noises but my foster mum is working with me on this. I am currently sleeping in a crate, but would love to sleep with you if i was given the chance. Travelling in a car is something that I have not really done in my previous home, so I am therefore noisy, I whimper away for a good part of the journey. I don’t mind cars or bicycles near the car but will bark incessantly at motor bikes until they are well passed me, again these are loud scary things i’ve never seen before. My diet has been changed to kibble twice a day which I enjoy, half my meal is put into a treat ball, to encourage me to play. I don’t know what to do with toys, my foster mum is trying to encourage me to play but I’m not really interested. I do grumble and tell you if I’m not comfortable doing things, especially regarding paws and knots on my coat. I can be stubborn but hey thats loveable right! I have been getting plenty of walks on a long line, I don’t pull on it, i enjoy being out walking in quiet areas.When walked on a short lead i can pull out of excitement but will quickly calm down, my foster mum is helping me with this. I should tell you that I get very anxious and can seem aggressive towards other dogs, I am just worried about them, I have never been used to so many when out and about as i rarely seen another dog in my previous home, my foster mum, again, is helping me with this and to boost my confidence with other dogs, she will be able to give you lots of advice to help me I have had my health check by a very nice vet and was passed fit, my weight is right, my teeth are ok but may benefit from a clean in the future. Since coming to my foster mum she has been trying to help me get accustomed to a less rural life with the assistance of SRS’s dog behaviourist, so far I am fine with adults, children are unknown to me as I have never met any. Cats are definitely a no no for me. My new home requires to be somewhere rural preferably, or somewhere quiet with a large garden , no young children and no cats or other dogs and definitely not in a busy populated place due to my reactions to noise. The SRS behaviourist will be accessible to my new family if required however I hope if l get all my wishes for quiet then they won’t be needed.
