SOLI – LURCHER
Came to the care of AfG June 2018.
He is estimated to be between age 3 to 4 years though possibly nearer age 3. He is a rough coated blue lurcher, ( 25kg ) believed to be a mix of Border Collie, Deerhound, Saluki and Greyhound (predominantly Collie/Deerhound).
He had been neglected and not properly socialised, probably not had a real puppyhood. It was obvious he was not used to being in a house.
He has been in foster care with the company of a medium size female dog since end of June. He is neutered and fully inoculated. He is now house trained.
He eats well, travels well and is now good walking on the lead. He is a very intelligent hound, very fit and agile. He is a very affectionate boy and loves cuddles and tummy rubs.
Due to him not being well socialised or trained before he came to AfG, he is not yet good at recall, so cannot be let of lead unless in a 100% fully enclosed safe area. He is used to a large garden in his foster home and enjoys long walks.
He is good with other dog breeds, he enjoys the company of other sighthounds, though a little fearful of large exuberant dogs. He does not take notice of cats until they run, so we are not yet 100% sure if he can be passed as’ cat safe ‘ and would prefer a non cat home. He seems to be non reactive to livestock and chickens/geese so we believe he has been around them in the past.
Soli will need a home with at least one quiet gentle dog for company. He will need a home with people who have experience with looking after rescued sighthounds who can continue with his socialisation and further training.
He also needs a fully enclosed secure garden with at least 5ft fence throughout.
