[rehomed!] ADOPT: Kendalle (Ken Ken)- sweet, friendly, well-behaved 3+yo male bearded collie cross aka shaggy dog

Kendalle, the lovely three year plus cross bearded collie aka shaggy dog is looking for a home. He is sweet and friendly with people and children and has a marvellously happy healthy appetite.

Ken Ken, as we affectionately call him gets along wonderfully well with cats and can be seen licking little kitties just like a proud daddy would. Our shaggy boy also get along well with dogs, big and small as long as they do not challenge him because he is an alpha dog. If the present dogs are mild mannered it will do Kendalle fine as he takes pride in his pack, just like a big Lion leader.

Kendalle found abandoned, a thin, boney sorry sight of a dog with lifeless eyes and when brought to the vet discovered to have heartworms. He responded very well to treatment, the vet had full praise for him for his temperament and docility. He is now in the prime of health, has been sterilised and we discovered, Ken Ken is an awfully good jumper.

Ken simply loves jumping and we know if a potential owner has plans for agility classes, you have found yourself a champion hurdler. Kendalle is also paper trained and contrary to myths that big dogs don't do well in apartments, Ken is actually pretty good in one as he knows how to behave indoors and outdoors. Ken enjoys lying next to you watching the lastest K-drama or listening to Gold 90.5 as much as he loves a good walk. He is a good walker, sometimes in his excitement he may pull but retracts as he listens to your commands

He is not boisterous but a well behaved, happy and friendly dog, with much zest for life and a great big appetite for food, treats and lots of cuddles. In return he gives you his big heart, his shaggy bear-like head and life-long loyalty and affection. At less than three, he has seen his share of misery and shed much tears at being left behind and left to die, so now he takes upon every minute to enjoy his life and endeavour make yours happy ones with his nudges for pats on his big shaggy head.

Kendalle is not suitable for HDB as he is big in size, around a Retriever's but he will adapt well in a condo and of course a house with garden will be perfect, as long as there is no low gates and fences. Remember our young big boy is a champion jumper, of course.
