Morty

Morty

  • Morty is a 1 year old saluki x boy. He stands at 28 inches to the shoulder.
  • Morty is a lovely, young, enthusiastic big puppy. He is a very sweet and loving fellow and gives wonderful sloppy saluki kisses. He is always happy to see you and greets with lots of enthusiasm!
  • He is a very strong and energetic lad but he also loves stretching out on the sofa and sleeping for hours!
  • Morty will steal from worktops or bins and can reach a long way. He does also love hooves and antlers and all kids of dog chews though so can be distracted from mischief with those.
  • Morty is fine living with another lurcher in the home and would benefit from the company of an older settled dog to help him in the home.
  • He can bark at dogs out and about but its excitement not fear or aggression. He just wants to play with everyone.
  • He does make noise if left in the day but is OK being left at night for a few hours with another dog for company.
  • Morty could be homed with older children as his large size and bouncyness means he may knock smaller ones over. He does love children though.
  • Morty has previously lived with 3 cats and could be homed with a dog savvy cat/s and an owner willing to put the work into getting them comfortable together.
  • He knows lots of commands including sit, down, heel, drop and leave but does get easily distracted!
  • He is not keen on car travel at the moment his new owner will need to do further work getting him comfortable travelling in the car.
  • Morty can be a little shy of meeting new people but he just needs his confidence building generally so he knows the world is not such a scary place.
  • Morty will be homed with a neutering contract to be neutered at 16 months as he is a large and very puppy like dog. For this reason he will not be homed with entire female dogs. The cost of neutering will be covered by Hounds First.
  • Morty is in foster in Corby, Northamptonshire.
