He loves his ball and his game times and we think a confident owner and a super active, energy burning house would be ideal. Digger has shown no problem with dogs in kennels, but due to his confidence we feel the single dog house is best suited.

The charity would also love to hear from Patterdale Lovers who have ever owned this breed and anyone else who has committed to teaching the cheeky pooch ‘fair boundaries and rules’. Avid hikers and families with older children are welcome.

The shelter adds:

Digger is handsome and very friendly at the kennel and we need to find him a home with experience as soon as possible.
