Hello, my name’s Nigel and I’m a strong four-year-old American Bulldog Cross. I came to the National Animal Welfare Trust in September when my owner’s circumstances changed.

I’m an energetic boy who just wants to be around people so I’m looking for a home where my human is around most of the time.

My favourite thing is to play with toys – especially the football. I’m a boisterous lad so I’ll need an experienced owner who understands big breeds and will show me how to play politely. I love food and have a talent for catching treats.

I’m a smart dog who needs plenty of mental stimulation and am doing well with my reward-based training here at the NAWT. I already know ‘sit’, ‘down’ and ‘paw’ but I’m still learning, so need an owner who’ll continue my training and reward me for keeping ‘four-paws-on-the-floor’.

Watford Observer:

I’m looking for a home with adults or families with children aged 16 or over and, ideally, one with a secure garden and not many visitors as I can be wary of new people. I’ll need to be your only pet so I don’t have to share your attention.

Coming from the NAWT, I’ve been medically checked by a vet; vaccinated, microchipped, wormed and neutered; given an individual training plan and four free weeks of Petplan insurance.

If you can give me the attention I need, call on 0208 950 0177 (option 2) or email reception@nawt.org.uk to meet me.
