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.
