Zero

Zero

 

  • Zero is a stunning saluki lurcher boy of around 18 months old.  He stands 27 inches floor to shoulder.
  • He is a lovable good natured boy.
  • Typical of a saluki type, he is a sensitive soul and will need a family who will take things very slowly with him and help him get used to the world one thing at a time.
  • Also typical of a saluki type, he can be vocal at times (especially if anxious).
  • He gets on great with other dogs and greets politely. He is fine with small dogs and is respectful of their size.  In fact he seems most comfortable in the company of smaller dogs.
  • 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 if he sees something of interest and is a strong boy!  He does have a prey drive out and about and will get excited if he sees something of interest.
  • We would not home Zero with a cat as he shows too much desire to chase.
  • 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 will be anxious at first but after 5 minutes or so will settle and can be left for 2 to 3 hours at a time on occasion and will give you a lovely enthusiastic greeting on your return.  He would not be suited to being left for long periods regularly.  He will need to fully settle into his new home before feeling confident enough to be left.
  • This gorgeous boy gets a bit worried by car travel.  He will need time to settle and build up confidence before undertaking much car travel with his new family.  He prefers someone to sit with him in the car to reassure him on journeys and then can manage a couple of hours at a time.
  • His foster carer says ‘Zero is a very good natured dog, a real cutie and generally quite easy,  he just needs lots and of love and reassurance and once settled in his new home would like to enjoy lots of lovely walks and space to run around.’
  • Zero is in foster near Wallingford in Oxfordshire.
