Cagney

Cagney

  • Cagney is a stunning and friendly saluki x girl who is 8 months old and stands 21 inches to the shoulder.
  • She currently eats and sleeps in a crate – she arrived fully crate trained. She settles well immediately with a kong and the radio on. She sleeps well overnight in the crate.
  • Like any young dog she may still chew and is basically a big puppy still needing to be supervised at times.
  • She is bouncy and does jump up though is slowly learning. She also will counter surf if given the chance.
  • Cagney’s recall on long line is pretty good – she will come back with out distraction. However, in typical saluki style she will look to go looking for things of interest down holes and in ditches.
  • She gets on brilliantly with other dogs in foster with 5 resident dogs and goes out daily on walks with all sorts of other dogs. She loves to play with other dogs-the faster and higher-energy the better as far as she’s concerned. She may need to be muzzled for play due to a tendency to nip in a characteristic sighthound way and not for aggression.
  • Cagney loves people, she loves to cuddle up on the sofa of an evening or is always up for a game with toys!
  • She currently gets 30 minute walk in the morning, an hour at lunch and 15 minutes on lead in the evening. She wears a harness with longline on the first two walks, she can pull a little on the lead but isn’t strong.
  • She is just a typical exuberant puppy who is now learning how to interact better with a whole range of other dogs.
  • Cagney is happy meeting new people out and about and could live with kids from around 8 years upwards – she’s a bit too bouncy for younger ones.
  • Cagney does have some prey drive – she would chase birds and squirrels but fine around horses and cattle.
  • Her house training is still a work in progress – its doing well but she does need to be encouraged to go out.
  • Cagney is happy travelling in the car.
  • She would need a fence of 6ft – she has jumped a high baby gate in the home.
  • She is in foster in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.
