More About Guinness
Hi my name is Guinness, but I go by Guinny most of the time because I’m being a very good boy. I am about 3 years old and I’m a kelpie (mostly), and after a short stint in Crookwell pound I landed in iso with ARF, I’m now on the lookout for my forever ever after home.
A bit about me and what I’m looking for in a new home. I am a super friendly and affectionate boy. I absolutely love having another dog to play with, I love my foster sister so much so I’m looking for a home with another playful female dog. I love cuddles from adults and I’m excellent at snuggling up to help watch TV or providing support while you’re working from home, I’m proficient at meetings via Zoom, Microsoft Teams and Skype for Business. But, while I love adults, I find children very, very scary so I’d prefer a home without children. I’ve become used to having human and dog company I am also okay with being left on my own while they go out without me. I’m happy pottering around the back yard or keeping warm in the house, my new home will definitely need to include me in their activities and let me live and sleep inside, I’m well behaved! I really enjoy my exercise and in a new home I would be an excellent daily walking or hiking partner, after my walk I’m a pretty chill guy. I’m also crate trained and happily sleep or hang out in there when you don’t need my assistance. I haven’t met cats or other small animals so we’d have to see what I think if you have any.
I also have some special needs, while in ARF I’ve had some tests and have been diagnosed with epilepsy. I was having seizures once a week but since being on medication haven’t had any more, as my diagnosis is new we are still working out dosage and I haven’t yet had my big boy surgery to be desexed but that will happen in June. My epilepsy will require medication for life and this means my new home will need to be prepared for the cost of medication, the annual check-ups and will make sure I have my medicine everyday. Here is an information sheet about epilepsy in dogs, to be honest being epileptic doesn’t bother me at all!
If you are interested in adopting me enquire below, make sure you tell me about the other dog you have and your ability to meet my medical needs!
