Age: 1 year
Alfie (Lurcher-maybe Saluki x? Approx 1 year)
Alfie was taken in after he was found straying, he was a little underweight and in need of some care and attention. Since being rehomed he has come out of his shell and has made good progress learning some basic commands like “sit,” “stay” and general recall (although not perfected!) This cheeky Chappy is only around 1 year old so he is still very puppy like in his behaviour, often very giddy with bundles of energy although will snooze throughout the day. He is house trained and loves going for lots of walks exploring new smells, getting plenty of attention and playing lots of fetch! His interaction with other dogs has been limited so he will need some socialisation training where he can learn his boundaries. Unfortunately, his stay can only be temporary as his foster parents cannot fulfil his needs full time so regrettably Alfie is looking for his forever home.
Thank you again for helping us find a home for Alfie. We really appreciate your understanding and help with the situation.
We have attached a brief write up about Alfie and photos for your website but we also thought it necessary to add a few extra good/bad traits we have noticed, although our knowledge is somewhat limited and we are unsure as to whether it is typical “Lurcher behaviour:”
· Not displayed any food aggression
· Has never snarled or showed his teeth
· House trained
· Generally good on lead (when no dogs in sight)
· Nibbling/ Mouthing us for attention.
· Occasionally barking back when told off
· Mostly playful with other dogs, but can get rough. Has started to show aggression (particularly to Spaniels)
· Separation frustration (suggested by behaviourist).
· Barrier Frustration when sees other dogs?
Should he find a home through Tia we’d be happy to make a financial contribution as a thank you for your efforts and we’re also happy to give the new owners any “bits n bobs” i.e. collar, lead, bed etc if it helps.
