Sandy was destined to be a racing Trailhound but didn't make the grade, so he hasn't lived in a home before. He enjoys the company of other calm dogs, especially hound types. He is at his happiest running around the fields and following his nose. Sandy takes his time to get to know you and can find strangers a bit scary so he will need owners who are willing to take things slow. However, once he has built up a relationship with you, he is a gentle and affectionate chap.
Type of home needed
The hustle & bustle of urban life isn't to Sandy's liking. He would love to live somewhere peaceful with local easy access to open fields & fresh air, as he is currently worried by car travel. Owners who can be at home most the time while he settles in and have a secure private garden to help him get to grips with toilet training would be ideal. It is likely that Sandy could live with another dog and maybe livestock too. Sandy will need an area where he can take himself if he gets a bit overwhelmed, so an open plan house isn't ideal. Sandy can live with children aged 16 and above and can have visiting children no younger than 12 years. Sandy can be quite a worried boy, so his new owners will need to take things slowly with him and allow plenty of time for him to settle in and get used to living in a home.
During these uncertain times, whilst we have had to unfortunately close our
rehoming centres to the public, we’d like to reassure you that our wonderful
staff will continue to provide the best possible care for our dogs. We are now
able to start the search for new homes for a small number of our awesome dogs.
This will really help us to support even more dogs who are most at risk of
being put to sleep as a result of this crisis. We have been overwhelmed by
your offers of support, and we wouldn’t be able to do any of this without
your help. We’d like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to
those individuals, who are doing everything they can to make sure our dogs
get fed, walked, looked after and, as soon as we are able, finding them
their forever home. We appreciate you thinking of us at what is a difficult
time for all. If you would like to make a donation to support whilst we continue
looking after the dogs in our care you can do so here...
