Applications for Milo are now closed while we work through the list of people who have applied.
Milo is a small lurcher – most likely a whippet cross bedlington terrier. He stands 22 inches to the shoulder and is 18 months old.
He is basically still a puppy. He is a happy little dog, who settled very quickly into foster. He is always super excited and enthusiastic to be doing stuff and interacting with people.
He would benefit from a home that can give him a decent balance of exercise AND brainwork. He needs 1-2 hours walks and some training time or brain games.
Milo is quiet in the house and sleeps well. He plays with toys and chews by himself during the day, knows to look in the toy box.
He can be left for a few hours after exercise and shows no problems being left either alone or with doggy company.
Milo is living happily with another male lurcher. He does barks at dogs when he sees them out walking but once introduced and walked he is fine. If a dog tells him to back off he does so straight away.
He can bark at some people when out but not in an aggressive way and he is just excited. If they stand still for a moment he will go to them and lick their hand and say hello.
Milo is great with kids and used to live with young children with no problems.
Milo is not cat tested but did live happily with a rabbit previously. He doesn’t show much interest in squirrels in the park. Its possible he could live with a confident cat who did not run and an owner experienced in introducing dogs and cats in the same household but he may be too full on for a timid cat that runs.
His prey drive is generally quite low – he shows a little interest in wildlife and is easily distracted.
Milo is partially house trained – he may occasionally have the odd accident and needs to be taken out regularly to ensure he stays clean indoors.
As with most beddie whippets he is barkier than your average lurcher – its all excitement barking though.
