Swede

Age: 14 months

Breed: Lurcher

Gender: Male

Ref: BD40724

 

Suitable with children: Yes

Other animals: Can live with dogs

Swede is a gorgeous young man who is a little nervous of new experiences. He loves being around people and enjoys being fussed but will need to form a strong bond with you before he is comfortable with some handling.

Although Swede would prefer a quieter home, he can live with older children who will respect his boundaries. He loves to play with soft toys on his own but can be wary of toys that are thrown. He may enjoy playing games with his family once his confidence improves.

He walks nicely on the lead but does have a high prey drive so will need to stay on his lead when out walking in his new home. Swede can be nervous when first meeting dogs and will need to learn some more social skills. He could live with a polite dog, pending mixes at the Home.

As long as his new owner is happy to continue his basic training with lots of positive reinforcement, Swede will be a wonderful addition to his new family.
