7 MONTH OLD LABRADOR DOG PUP
I appreciate the market is flooded with hundreds of litters of pups and that an “older” pup may appear “broken” or as a “covid buy” etc but this is not the case with this pup aka Fletcher and I am trying to give as honest an appraisal as I can of him and his ability He is KC registered, chipped, vaccinated , not needed to see the vets since his vaccinations, he is DNA clear by parentage for CNM, EIC, PRA and SD2 and has had no health tests as he’s not old enough , both his parents are health tested, his father won the Irish Retriever Championships his mum is a working dog sired by a FTCH so he is well bred and he was bought with the intention of becoming a gundog. I work my dogs a lot of days in tough terrain and they need a hard edge and determination about them which Fletcher doesn’t have hence moving him on.
He was crate trained inside the house till 4mths then moved out to the kennel with an older spaniel it would not take much to have him house trained and re-train manners inside the house, he is social with myself and my pack of dogs and has shown no aggression to either. He has not been exercised and taken to areas with loads of people, cars, kids, cats, livestock etc as due to covid I have not been willing to trawl myself through these areas so he will (like any 8 wk old pup) need careful and gradual introduction to these scenarios, upon meeting you he may seem quiet, subdued and slightly wary but that’s ok as to him he hasn’t met anyone in his garden yet, so this is new to him, he is a well mannered pup, kindly and very laid back, off-lead as the video shows he will wander about but then happily on his own accord come back to my side, or recall if asked and will walk happily on a lead, he will happily retrieve balls and canvas dummies to hand and has had cold game if you wish to train him on as a gundog, he would be ideal as a peg dog as he is a lovely natural retriever with a very laid back attitude.
His price is lower than some pups out there less than half price of some………..why ? I am not a business and he is being sold for what he has cost me simple as that, he has been well cared for, fed a good quality sensible diet has not been allowed to over exercise and is only available as I needed him to fit a gap in my working team which unfortunately he won’t be up to doing…not his fault, he simply hasn’t the drive I am looking for.
Please only contact me if genuinely interested, if this advert is still up then take it he is available, we do have some potential interest but I want the ideal home for him so if contacting tell me about yourself, the home on offer.
