Introducing... Jude!

About Jude:

Jude was one of the most confident dogs coming off of the transport van and he came over for tickles very shortly after! He is a very sweet boy with a terrier/slight corgi look about him!

He is short in height but long bodied. So far Jude is enjoying spending time with staff and volunteers, and is very food oriented!

He does have an overbite but by heck, this does not affect the way he eats! He just looks a bit goofy at times when you catch him on a side profile. 

Jude does enjoy touches and strokes but at times can be a bit anxious with too much handling and will wriggle away, his owner will need to build this up with him overtime so that he is more comfortable.

One aspect about Jude is that he is ridicuously hard to photograph as he either wants to sniff a smell across the field or be right up in your lap! So applicants will only see his true beauty in viewings!

He has the potential to be a cheeky boy in future and will need gentle guidance to know what is and is not acceptable behaviour.


With other dogs: 

Jude can be dog social and has made friends with several dogs at the rescue. His best pal is currently his next door neighbour, Toby. He has become more playful with dogs over time and seems to enjoy their company, however, Jude has displayed signs of food guarding which means that he can become grumpy with other dogs if there is food around. This means that Jude will need to live in the home as an only dog, and interactions with visiting dogs must be well managed. He has not shown an interest in toys at this moment in time, but may potentially become protective over items once he settles in the home. Jude could have doggy friends on walks. He has not displayed guarding behaviours around people, but staff will explain how to continue to keep this positive in the home to prevent this from becoming a problem.

Jude underwent lead training not long after arrivng with us and he now enjoys nothing more than a long stroll with our kennel volunteers. He can still get very nervous on walks if he has been spooked on the previous one or if it's dark and he is feeling unsure but with plenty of reassurance, it usually only takes some gentle encouragement and he is off exploring again.

Moderate energy

So far Jude has shown a moderate level of activity, however this has potential to increase once settled in a home


Jude could be trained to be left 3-4hrs in the future, but to begin with he will need to be left as little as possible

Requires further lead training

Jude is doing well with lead training but some days he does require more support than others

Training required

Jude will require at minimum, a basic level of training when settled into the home
