Bumble is in kennels near Fleet, Hampshire, he arrived with us on the 24th September 2021 and he was born on the 12th July 2018.
Bumble and Bee are brothers and have been kennelled together for a while. These two enjoy each others company but can you tell them apart?
Bumble is timid of new people but once he has got to know you, his real character comes alive! Bumble is going to need more time to settle in than his brother but don’t give up on him as he has such a sweet character to share, once he trusts you.
These stunning looking brothers are both adorable and when you see them you will not be able to resist!
They do have separate personalities although they are nervous, once you have unlocked them these two become different dogs!
Bumble will not ‘sell’ themselves in a viewing, the lads nervous side will unfortunately get the better of him, when he first sees new people. We would ask you to not over look him, any new owner for either of these two brothers, we would ask to visit a couple of times before the homing date so they can start to feel more confident, before actually moving into a home environment.
Bumble has started to make good friends with a few of the kennel hands that he sees daily and will greet them with a big waggy tail. Sometimes he needs a few minutes in the morning to realise who you are but once that has been completed he then wants to be with you! He just needs a little time and patience as once he trusts you, a loving boy comes out of his shell and you will not believe that it is the same dog!
He is quite quiet within his kennel but enjoys time out in the yard with a greyhound friend who he can run around with and play ‘catch me!’ This lad would need to be homed with another dog in the house, this will encourage him to become more settled and build his confidence up.
He could be homed with his brother if the right home came along. We are also looking for a family who have experience with training nervous dogs.
We would ask for a quiet home with no young children, Bumble could live with older teenagers who are familiar with nervous dogs.
He loves his outings, travels well and is always very keen to get into the car, unaided. This boy can walk nicely on a lead and enjoys going out for his walks however if he is spooked by a noise in the bushes, car or motorbike Bumble may get anxious. It is these times he needs a confident owner and one that will show him how to react in those situations. Bumble’s confidence has grown in the few days he has been with us.
Bumble has shown he can be sociable with other breeds, if correct socialisation is carried out. He enjoyed meeting Chloe and loved racing around the yard with her.
He enjoys being outside, either going out for walks or just stretching his legs in an enclosed area.
There is a lot for Bumble to learn about the outside world, with time and a confident owner he will learn and his true character will start to shine. Bumble will not show his true colours in a viewing, he needs to learn to trust his human friends, before he becomes more confident around them. Poor Bumble might be overlooked because of this, he would love to have a viewing and a home, just like his other friends.
We would consider homing the brothers together as they get on so well together but they can also be homed apart providing they have a doggie companion in their new home.
Bumble enjoys a good game of chase, with his soft toys, he will sometimes pick them up whilst he is running around at top speed! This boy will only show you his love for toys when he has a doggie friend with him.
This lad needs time to settle into a home and an owner who is confident. They need to spend time with Bumble earning his trust and giving him space to develop his character in a new environment. Any owner who takes on this lad will not look back. Once Bumble has become more confident he is such a loving boy who just wants his own home. In just a few days his confidence has grown massively around people he knows well.
Call the adoption line and come and meet Bumble – what a fantastic lad he is!
