Reserved – Saffi

  • Saffi is a rough-coated lurcher girl who is 15 months old – still a baby really.
  • She stands at 26 inches to the shoulder.
  • Saffi is not keen on being left at the moment and will bark and cry – she is currently left for about 30 mins with a kong but is improving all the time. Crate training is a work in progress. She will sleep in her crate downstairs overnight.
  • She is an energetic girl who will need two good walks per day.
  • Saffi loves people of all ages – she is a bit too bouncy and mouthy for young children. She would be OK with older kids with good parental supervision.
  • She is in foster with other sighthounds – she is not worried if they tell her off but can lack some doggy manners and any dogs in the home would need to cope with her bouncy nature – she is good natured though and its all puppy habits she will grow out of in time. She is fine meeting and greeting dogs out and about.
  • Saffi does have prey drive  – we would not home her with a cat or small furries. She is very interested in sniffing rabbit holes and will need lots of work to manage her around wildlife distractions.
  • She is now clean in the house but doesn’t know how to tell you she needs to go out yet.
  • Saffi is very food motivated – she will jump onto worktops to pinch food.
  • She knows a couple of commands (Off and Wait)
  • She walks nicely on lead – will pull if she sees a cat or something of interest.
  • Saffi will need a high fence – at least 6ft. She has also tried to get through some very small holes in the fence so will need a very secure garden.
  • She loves going out in the car!
  • Saffi is a very friendly and happy girl who is keen to be involved in whatever you are doing! She is very energetic and would love a home with another dog of similar disposition or as an only dog with lots of doggy friends for zoomies and fun in secure offlead areas.
  • She is in foster not far from Stevenage in Hertfordshire.
  • Due to coming in season when she came into foster Saffi has not yet been spayed. She will be homed with a neutering contract and costs will be covered by Hounds First. She therefore cannot be homed where there is an un-neutered male in residence.
