Suitable environment: Children from 7 up, Dog Friendly, Cat Friendly

Personality

Rocky at the tender age of 7 months old, was taken to a local vets for euthanasia so we stepped in to save his life.. Although Lurchers by nature can be quite anxious, Rocky seemed to be on the extreme end of the scale when arriving with us, he was petrified of everything and everyone. Slowly with lots of encouragement and support, he is coming out of his shell. Rock has been great with us, he is incredibly playful and really loving. He now enjoys lots of attention from the team. We have been introducing him into the rescue pack, he is getting along very well with other dogs and thrives socializing with them. Recently we have noticed when meeting new people Rocky’s tail has begun to wag more and more! He is becoming a genuinely happy little soul.

Health & Behaviour

Rocky has no known health conditions. We were told Rocky has resource guarding in the home however we have not seen any of this behaviour. He will need guidance with toilet training as he can have accidents in the home, although he does keep his crate clean. Rocky walks nicely on a lead, he does not pull.

Perfect Match?

There is definitely ongoing work to be done with Rocky, however he is young and with the correct guidance this should not be a problem. Anyone thinking about adopting Rocky needs to understand they need to go back to basics when training. His new family needs to show him patience and kindness while leading with a firm set of boundaries in place. In return not only will you feel a sense of achievement helping Rocky through this tough time, you will also be rewarded with lots of love and affection. We encourage any potential adopters (without breed experience) to do some prior research around Lurchers to ensure a solid knowledge base, with regards to their nature.
