Special skill: Chasing the water from the garden hose!

Flint is the biggest lap dog in the world. He is such a sweet guy, adores people and has been very good out and about at fundraising and awareness events for Hope. He is good with people of all ages and likes children. He can be rehomed with children aged 5 years plus who are used to bigger dogs (he can be a bit clumsy and even a thump of his tail could knock smaller children down).

Flint will be looking for a new home who have experience around larger dogs and can work on his lead training as he is a strong lad and does pull on the lead. He is however a fast learner and already has some basic training. he will just need some further tweaking using kind, positive methods only. He can be let off lead once he gets to know his new owners and has good recall.

Flint is a very social dog and likes to have company. He is never left for long by his foster home and he is not a huge fan of being without his humans. He would like a new home where someone is around for most of the day.

Flint is very good with other dogs and can be rehomed with canine companions or as the only dog. He is currently living in a big pack and gets on very well with all the dogs. He is good with dogs he meets out on walks and is very playful. We do not know how he would be around cats or small animals.

Flint will need a secure garden in his new home.

All Hope Rescue dogs are neutered, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and microchipped prior to rehoming. A homecheck will be required, and you will need to come and meet the dog with your own dogs and family. Hope Rescue rehomes throughout the UK. A Pre-Home Interest Form can be downloaded from www.hoperescue.org.uk and should be returned to dogs@hoperescue.org.uk

Flint has been attending the Meet and Greets. What a sensational looking dog radiating confidence and self assurance. He is a very friendly boy but is not slow in coming forward. However he took no offence when pushed away from taking all the treats. He is so friendly, loves cuddles, tries sitting on your lap which is a struggle due to his size!!! The kids that met him loved him and he was great with them. Not one sign of nervousness or aggression at all - which I think shocked so many shoppers!!!! An ambassador of the breed.

He is gorgeous, could possibly be crossed with a ridgeback, looks like a male chunkier version of Juno.
