Swarley is a handsome 3.5 year old boy who is looking for someone special to love him as much as he will love them. This big, beautiful boy just adores his humans and is super affectionate with adult visitors, he just wants everyone to love him and shower him with attention.

Swarley has always been an inside dog and very spoiled; his owners recently had a baby and Swarley has found himself outside, desperate to be in with his people. Swarley will need someone home often in his new home, he likes to be wherever his humans are and wants to be your shadow, he must be included inside as part of the family in his new home.
Swarley has not received the necessary socialisation and training he needed in his earlier years and as a result is a very confused and conflicted dog. Whilst Swarley loves adult humans, he is worried when around children and will need to avoid them in his new home. Swarley needs a home where everyone is over the age of 12 years old, a home with visiting children/ grandchildren under this age would not be suitable.

Swarley has not been socialised with other dogs and becomes very hyper-aroused and reactive when he sees another dog out walking. Swarley needs a confident handler that has experience with large, reactive dogs that can help to practice and teach Swarley calm and appropriate behaviour when he sees another dog. Swarley needs to keep his distance from other dogs for now and will need to be the only pet in his new home, he would not be suited to a home with cats.

This big goofy boy loves to play and cuddle, he is a softie who just wants to show you how much love he has to give and how loyal he is. We know that with a confident, experienced handler who is willing to put the time and effort into setting boundaries and slowly exposing Swarley, that he will make an amazing companion. He truly just wants someone to cuddle up on the couch with, spending his days by his human’s side.
