Unfortunately for Hendrix he suffered a fractured femur and has undergone 2 surgeries and spent nearly 5 months recuperating in a crate. His leg has now healed and he is able to be out of the crate, although he still has another 3 weeks before he can go back to rough play. During all this period he has been a star patient and very easy to manage.

Hendrix has the most loveable, goofball nature and tries very hard to please. He loves his crate (fortunately) and travels well in the car. While he is a good boy he will require ongoing training.

Will you look at what they've made me wear?

He is a fairly large dog (32kg) and being a bit of a goofball, he will need a reasonably strong and capable handler.
Hendrix is good with our other dogs and cats although he can get a little anxious when meeting new dogs on outings but has always been friendly.


He is used to being around our horses and cows and is learning that chooks and guinea fowl are not for dinner, although he doesn’t worry them in their chook pen. Had to laugh at him the other day when he ran up to the chook pen and the chooks flapped and made a racket, he ran for his life back to the house in fright. With more practise and good leadership he will be an amazing partner.

If you are looking for a dog that makes you laugh and you can provide good leadership then Hendrix may be the dog for you, he is a really loveable clown, Due to his size and happy go lucky nature Hendrix would best suit a home without small children as he would likely accidentally knock them over.
