Dash is a delightful, friendly, boisterous young lurcher of around 18 months old.
He stands approximately 24″ floor to shoulder. He may have some growing still to do.
Dash loves people! This sometimes means he gets a bit over excited when meeting them and may jump up and/or mouth.
He has a busy bright mind and needs an experienced active home where he will get mental as well as physical exercise appropriate for his age.
Dash walks nicely on a lead but will pull a little at first or if he sees something of interest.
He greets other dogs out and about appropriately as long as he is given space. As with all dogs, he will need time to fully settle into a new home, gain confidence and take things slowly, building up new experiences and introductions rather than being thrown into meeting lots of new dogs out and about straight away.
He travels well in the car and seems to enjoy it.
He is house trained and will ask to go out.
Dash will need a home with somebody around most of the time. He is learning to cope with being left and is best left in the company of other dogs. This is something that his current foster carer is working on but in his current foster home Dash will currently cry and sometimes howl when left.
Dash would be best homed with another dog but they would need to be tolerant of puppyish, boisterous behaviour. A female companion may suit him best but it would all be down to temperament and introductions.
Dash could not be homed with a cat.
His behaviour is too energetic and rough for young children. We think he could be homed with dog savvy, sensible children of around 12 plus.
His recall is a work in progress. However, he does show potential for good recall with positive reward based training.
