MORE INFORMATION: Boots is a beautiful rough coated Lurcher. He walks beautifully on the lead, loves both dogs and people and is a pleasure to spend time with. He is toy and food motivated but also happy to sit down and watch the world go by.
IDEAL HOME: Boots is a very adaptable boy. He would suit most family homes, he is gentle and loving but becomes attached to his humans and enjoys their company so he needs a home where someone is around most of the time, he can happily sleep on his own downstairs at night time though.
FEEDING: He likes lots of food but we feed him a raw Diet, Barking Heads or Natures Diet at Glendee
HEALTH: He is still a little underweight bit is otherwise healthy. We had been told that he suffered with epilepsy, but months into us knowing him, still no sign.... we are just wondering if it was an excuse to not keep him anymore, but we just can't confirm either way and want to be clear, this is information we need to pass on to any potential home, at the moment it is a very low probability. And he has now gone over 5 months without any signs of it.
TRAINING REQUIREMENTS : he is currently doing basic training with us but has no large behavioural issues to overcome that have shown up during his stay with us.
This is our current assessment, the assessments are on-going as always, and although we temperament test our dogs in many situations, we can not know how they be when they arrive in your home, support is given as always be given by the trainer you are matched to.
