Please note: Lew will be rehomed as an only dog no cats please.

Lew’s ideal home would be a farm where he can potter around and help with all the jobs, or with someone who can take him everywhere they go. He really does loves to be in on the action and loves going in the car. Lew prefers to have his people around at all time, although his carers have been working on him spending some time alone in the afternoon and he is getting much better at this, but he can get quite anxious if he thinks he is being left.

Lew longs for human company, however, can be reactive with other animals and as such should be an only pet. That means no visiting dogs either. He can be fine with some dogs but not like others so he is best just to have walks in quiet places where there is not too much interaction with other dogs. Lew does display typical heeler traits and as such would benefit from an owner that has previous experience in this breed. Lew enjoys two twenty-minute walks a day and would love just hanging out with his person.

Lew is a bright little guy and would benefit from mental stimulation, games, tricks or being taught something new. He came to us as a palliative care dog but he has really bounced back. There is a little bit of urine leakage, usually at night, so not ideal for those with pristine carpets everywhere.

In most ways he is a total sook, so you must want an affectionate boy. He adores music, and if you are a shower-only singer be assured Lew will be an appreciative audience. He loves nothing better than to be either sung to or to have music playing. And as far as singing to him while you massage him gently and he drifts off to sleep, well that is his idea of heaven.
