its very sad that my 1st post is in regards to finding a new home for my 3 yr old male cavalier called murphy
he is finding it difficult to adjust to me going to work full time, resulting in distructive and attention seeking behaviour
i am at a loss as to what to do for him, he is caged at night but not during the day, he is able to get outside (via the cat flap). he has always been fine with this, but, since i've been working full time he has gradually started showing signs of boredom and attention seeking, i regularly come home now to find he has shredded paper/card etc and urinated around the house. He never did anything like this when i was at home more and never does these things when i am home. I can't bring myself to cage him for 11 hours a day whilst i am at work and he obviously isn't happy with the situation, so for his sake i have made the decision to try and find him a loving home.
as i have already said he is a 3yr old male, tri color cavalier. although he has not been registered as a pedigree i do have a copy of his family tree (all kc registered), he has been neutered and chipped. He needs a home where he will get lots of love and attention,where he won't be on his own for long periods of time. he can be wary of strangers but i have found how to deal with this when new people come into my home (will discuss this in more depth with any interested parties). Although he is fabulous with my 5 yr old son i wouldn't trust him with other young children because of behaviour he has shown towards other children he doesn't know when we have been out and about. I know i am not painting a wonderful picture here but just want to be honest to find the most suitable home for him. he really is a lovely dog, he just needs an owner with more time to fuss him
i am in rochdale, and would be more than happy to do a slow introduction if you wanted to visit a couple of times, maybe take him for a walk and build a bond with him before you take him home
