Watkins is a gorgeous, smart, friendly 1 year old Lurcher who is full of bouncy, fun energy. He loves to zoom around outside in our large field, sniff his way around our wooded compound and absolutely adores playing with toys! A good supply of teddies will keep this lovely boy very happy! A friendly lad with people and dogs, he greets everyone with an enthusiastic, bouncy, waggy hello but is quite respectful of dogs that need space. Once he gets to know you he loves a really big, fussy cuddle! Watkins travels well in the car, does a really good sit and is working on giving his paw. He is eager to please, so has lots of potential and loves tasty treat which will be a great tool for his ongoing training. He will make a wonderful, fun companion to share walks, games and cuddles with!
Type of home needed
Watkins is looking for an active family who like to go on long walks and will play lots of fun games with him. Watkins' new owners will need to continue with all his basic training with patience as he is still very young. He can live with children aged 16 and over who are confident with bouncy breeds. He will need to have owners who are at home for the majority of the time at first and are willing to build his leaving time gradually in a positive way once he has settled. Using enrichment activities like lickimats and stuffed kongs will be good to keep this clever boy busy. Watkins gets on well with other dogs and could potentially live with another dog pending successful meets. Watkins has a high chase drive so would not be able to live with cats or other small furries. He will need access to a secure, private garden. Watkins will need to meet his new owners multiple times at the Canterbury Rehoming Centre prior to his adoption, so please consider this when applying for him.
More about me
If Watkins sounds like your perfect match, please get in contact to express an interest. Please note if you rent your property, you must be able to provide written permission from your landlord to keep a dog to complete the rehome process. Due to expected high levels of interest you will only hear back from us if we are able to proceed with your application. We will conduct a rehoming interview with successful applicants and home visit via video. Access to emails and video technology will be essential for this process.
