Hello, my name is Chopper but close friends call me Mister Chops. Can you believe I’ve only just turned a year old? I was brought to the National Animal Welfare Trust in July when my owner’s circumstances changed.

As a big pup, I can be a handful so am looking for somebody active who has owned a young, energetic large breed before. They’ll need to enjoy using positive reward-based training methods because that’s what I respond to the best. I’m young so still have a lot to learn. I’m a clever boy who picks things up quickly and a tasty snack or fun toy usually gets my attention.

Watford Observer:

I need a quiet, adult-only home where I’m the only pet. My human will need to provide me with plenty of mental and physical stimulation, like puzzles and obedience training.

The trainer here says I’ll need a large garden as I love to run around and my owner will have space to continue my training without too many distractions. My new owner will need to be home most of the day to keep me company.

Watford Observer:

I’m being trained to wear a muzzle for trips to the vet and socialisation with other dogs but still need to work on my loose lead walking and keeping four paws on the floor to greet people politely.

If you can give me a good home, call the NAWT on 0208 950 0211 (option 2) or email reception@nawt.org.uk so we can meet.
