Wondering who this very handsome bearded boy is? Meet Kinder, a 3.5 year old Podenco cross who is currently in the area of Brighton BN3 (UK). He unfortunately has been very unlucky in the past and we really feel it’s time this changes.

He traveled from Spain to the UK when he was adopted with the tender age of 4 months. He grew up alongside children and enjoying time in a home. After 2 years and due to circumstances totally unrelated to him, Kinder found himself in need of a new home. We were so happy when a home came forward, who was able to give him the activity and attention Kinder needed. A lovely adopter who had the time and patience to care for Kinder and to re-train him in the areas he needed help with. With her he has become a much more settled dog, able to live in a more urban environment and to handle noises and stressors more easily. Heartbreakingly, his adopter now has a long term recovery from an operation, and isn’t in the position anymore to offer Kinder the care and activity he needs why Kinder sadly is again looking for a forever home. After so many changes in his 3.5 years, he now has to move on once more.  

Kinder is very sweet with everyone he meets (dogs and people alike). At the same time he is also both an active boy (true to his Podenco nature) and a sensitive soul at the same time. He can be frightened by buzzing noises and loud traffic (he is afraid of drones, flies and remote control toys). He loves cuddles, plenty of praise and his teddy bear. He’s great with other dogs, and is calm around nervous ones, but he also loves a proper run and chase with his more confident doggy friends.  

His favourite activity is hunting, whether it be a street walk and sniffing around or a run in the woods. He generally has good recall these days, and his adopter has worked hard on this, but he gets distracted in parks or anywhere there are trees and bushes, as he would rather look for squirrels or foxes. Although he may occasionally ignore if he is in full hunt mode, he will return even if not straightaway. He is whistle trained but hardly ever needs it now as he will check in every couple of minutes when he goes for walks in the country. Future adopters will need to be mindful of cats and livestock such as sheep, as Kinder cannot be trusted not to chase. Kinder walks well on the lead but will suddenly pull if he sees a cat/squirrel. He is fine with heavy traffic and also fine in crowds of people, but we do feel his nature is more suited to a semi-urban or rural area. He loves attention from people and he enjoys reassurance and affection.

Kinder needs a kind and understanding home, that is also active, offering lots of opportunity to run and explore the outdoors. He wouldn’t be happy without this as part of his daily routine.

Kinder has lived in both a house and a flat. He doesn't bark too much but he is fairly sensitive to noise, and while he has become much better in recent months, this is something future owners should be aware of. He can be jumpy if certain noises are around him. This gorgeous boy is affectionate, playful, active, fun and very gentle. He is true to his breed in his love for the outdoors, and his future family needs to be prepared to manage his prey drive and activity level. He is a large dog- slender but tall in stature - with beautiful big ears and an adorably scruffy beard.  Kinder is health checked, neutered, vaccinated and micro chipped.

We absolutely need Kinder’s new home to be the last. He has handled all the changes in his life remarkably well, but it’s time for him to finally feel settled and comfortable in a home he will never have to leave. Please consider this carefully before applying. If you feel you can offer the commitment he deserves for the rest of his life and are happy to spend the next 12-15 years with Kinder and include him into your family, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We are more than happy to answer any questions you may have. Please be aware that we require from all potential adopters that they are able to travel to his current place to meet Kinder in person prior adoption.
