Irish has turned it in after 3 short races. He is still new here at AFG and we are getting to know him better. Could this lad be the one you are looking for?
Irish is a super sweet and loving boy. He loves to cuddle and can easily turn into a mommas boy for sure. He seems to be a little nervous around men but hasn’t had any issues around women. We also feel that Irish would do best with a more confident dog to help him come out of his shell.
He is very shy/nervous so he will need someone that is super patient with him and understanding to the idea that he’s just going to need time to adjust to new situations. He can be jumpy when it comes to things that scare him. Because Irish is scared of loud noises and sudden movements we feel it would be best for him to not go to a home with small children.
He does not do well in a crate, an ex-pen or gating him into a room. He has separation anxiety and barrier anxiety so trying to pen him up only results in his anxiety getting amped up and causing destructive behavior. We have found he does best free range, this helps his anxiety. When he is free range he does not get into anything and usually just plays with a toy and sleeps all day.
Irish does have a leg that he limps on after any exercise whether it be a full on run with the kids or just jogging around the yard. His leg will get stiff after laying down and he will not put weight on it. I massage it for him when it happens and that seems to help and further helps when he stretches his leg.
All around we adore Irish because he really is the sweetest boy. He’s so quiet and calm when his people are home. He doesn’t have any space issues and can be manipulated around with no issues. We have not noticed any sleep aggression either. He plays well with our dogs and enjoys their company.
