Bert is a 9-year-old Lurcher who has been through a lot over the past year or so. Don't let his age fool you, his is such a fun, loving lad who is full of beans and up for any adventure! He LOVES toys, especially squeaky ones, so his new home will need an endless supply for Bert to play with! He has a cheeky side, where he knows how to wiggle his way into your heart and get extra treaties off you. He has really been enjoying his training sessions here at the centre and is eager to learn more. He has made amazing progress with his dog socialisation here at the centre, so new owners will need to continue this once home.
Type of home needed
Bert is going to need a secure, private garden to run around in as he will be going home on an onlead in public disclaimer. Bert can be quite greedy around food, so his new home will need to have a place for him to go during human dinner time! He won't be able to live with cats or other dogs but can have dog friends out and about if introduced in the right way (our behaviour team can give you some guidance on this). He can live with children aged 14 and above. Bert would love a quieter household with owners who will let him have all the toys he desires. Owners who will be patient with him and that are willing to manage his socialisation with other dogs and take him out on adventures as he loves to explore. New owners should also be willing to work on his separation anxiety.
