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.
