Sully is a 18 week old gentle Saluki x Greyhound boy. He stands at 24 inches to the shoulder currently and will probably make about 27 inches fully grown.
Currently Sully’s recall is good although he is easily distracted which is natural at his age.
He is living happily with other dogs and could live with kind children over 5 who understand he is a sensitive boy.
Sully is eager to please and just needs to be shown how in a kind and understanding way He loves cuddles and kisses and sleeps in a crate in the bedroom.
His house training is coming on brilliantly.
So far Sully has shown little sign of prey drive – he has met a cat while in foster and shown little interest – in fact he was a bit scared! He could live quite happily with the right cat and some training.
He is timid around new people indoors but is a lot more confident outdoors. His fosters are working on his confidence and getting him to have lots and lots of positive encounters.
Sully does cry a little when you go out but is better if he has a good tiring game or a walk before going out. He is not destructive and should settle as he grows and gains confidence. Ideally we would like to find him a home where he was not left for long periods at least at first.
He would benefit from a confident friendly dog or dogs in the home but would like to be fed separately while he gains confidence.
He meets and greets happily outside the home.
Sully is scared of loud voices and sudden movements and certainly needs positive reinforcement. He is more nervous of men than women and so needs kindly male role models to give him lots of love.
He is a very loving boy who loves attention and to play when he has trust. Desperate to please and a pleasure to be around. He loves to love!
In the right home he will blossom further – he needs a family who understand that his past means he may be more nervous than some pups and that he is gently introduced to new experiences in a fun and positive way.
As with all our young dogs we will ask adopters to attend positive reward based training classes with an accredited trainer as part of the adoption process.
