Please note: Lew will be rehomed as an only dog.

Lew is an active and highly entertaining old dog who is looking for a new best friend to take him everywhere and share adventures with him. Yes this is surprising to usas Lew first presented to us as a doddery old guy on his last legs, but now far from it.

Lew is an easy going, super friendly guy who is stocky but undersized, which makes him a total crowd favourite. He is a typical blue heeler in that he is determined, great at heeling, knows verbal and hand signs and needs at least two good walks a day. He is at times boisterous and enthusiastic but can also be snuggly and quiet. He eats and drinks with gusto but will politely sit whenever asked and give you his paw. Being a working dog breed, he needs to be kept active both mentally and physically, so if you want a cute oldie to sit in front of the fire with, Lew probably isn’t the dog for you, unless you’re planning on going for a very long walk first!

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 in eyesight at all times, 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 does want to be an only dog and he can take umbrage at dogs in his area. But let’s face it in all other 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.

We hope this lovely old boy finds his new best friend soon as he really deserves it after a long time of being down on his luck.

No cats.
