Sansa is a stunning 5 month old lurcher girl – she is a mix of several breeds and her father was a full greyhound.
She currently stands at 20 inches to the shoulder but will grow much larger.
Sansa loves everyone – especially children and can be homed with dog savvy children of any age who understand that she is still in the puppy mouthing stage sometimes.
Sansa can live with a cat that is used to dogs and wont run – she may need a bit of work to get used to the cat but has met some and is not aggressive with them.
Sansa has no SA and can be left for around 3-4 hours without issue and after a walk.
She loves other dogs both in the house and out and about. Typical of her age she is always keen to play with the resident dog and so other dogs in the house need to be tolerant to her puppy antics. She could also be an only dog.
Her recall is coming along really well – she shows a little interest in wildlife but can be distracted away.
Sansa will need work to get used to travelling in the car.
She is a typical 5 month old pup – some chewing and mouthing is to be expected but she is bright and learning well. She is partially house trained, but doesn’t know how to tell you when needs to go outside and may have the odd accident while she settles.
She will need PLENTY of exercise and mental stimulation as an adult dog – as she is going to be a big girl though she needs to have small amounts until she is grown.
Sansa will need to attend puppy training classes approved by Hounds First as part of her adoption contract.
Sansa – or wiggles as her foster mum calls her – is a very cheerful, happy pup. She holds no grudges against anyone and has a “life’s too short” attitude to pretty much everything. She is a highly intelligent little monkey with legs that get longer every day, a proper little super model. Sansa loves living with the resident dog but isn’t necessarily concerned if she goes out without her, she is a people’s dog just as much.
Her fosterers describe Sansa as “poirot with ADHD”. She wants to know what you’re doing, why you’re doing it, how long you’re doing to do it for and most importantly; can she join in?! But as soon as she knows everything shes gone to investigate something else. She will play tug of war with the resident dog but then loses every time because she loses interest too quickly to persevere. The world is an exciting place and Sansa wants to explore every little bit of it!
Sansa is a truly wonderful little dog who is full of love, life and joy. In a home that will provide her with the activity she needs, she will really thrive.
