Zero – under assessment

Zero – under assessment

  • Zero is a young saluki cross lurcher boy of around 1 year old.  He stands 27 inches floor to shoulder.
  • He has recently moved foster homes so will be under assessment again for a couple of weeks whilst he settles.
  • He is a lovable good natured boy who is still quite puppyish.
  • Zero loves to play with his toys or with his whippet foster brother and also adores snuggling up to humans on the sofa.
  • He gets on great with other dogs and greets politely. He is fine with small dogs and is respectful of their size.
  • He can be a little bit shy around men at first and will hang back but is great once he gets to know them and decides they deserve cuddles too.
  • Zero could live with children but being a big bouncy boy we would be wary about homing him with very young chidren as he could knock them over.
  • He walks nicely on the lead although does pull at first or if he sees something of interest.
  • He is house trained and will ask to go out.
  • Zero does have recall as long as their are no distractions so has the potential, with training, to work on a solid recall.
  • When left, Zero can become anxious and may howl.  He can currently be left for 2 to 3 hours at a time. This is gradually improving but he will need someone to be around at first until he has settled into his new home and then have the time left built up gradually.
  • This gorgeous boy does get a bit worried by car travel and will drool but is not car sick.
  • In his previous home Zero successfully lived with three cats so we feel he could be homed with a dog savvy cat or cats and an owner willing to put the work into getting them comfortable together.
  • Being a saluki cross Zero does love to sing the song of his people!  He is not for you if you expect sighthounds to be seen and not heard.
  • Zero 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.
  • Zero is in foster near Oxford.
