Tommy, Lurcher

What we know about Tommy…

Tommy was abandoned at the roadside so we don’t have any information about him.

He is shy of new people initially and will not approach. He doesn’t look for affection or attention but enjoys a little pet when he receives it. He loves jumping in the van and was happy to be handled by the vet. He finds the kennels a bit overwhelming and some days he doesn’t like to leave the safety of his bed – unless Lucy our Sunday girl is here! He LOVES Lucy!

He’s currently receiving veterinary care for immune mediated vasculitis and is on steroids to remedy the matter, this may be a lifelong condition to be managed by steroids but of course stress, caused by kennel life, may be a contributing factor.

Tommy likes other dogs, as long as they’re not too rough. And another dog in the home may be beneficial for him to show him the ways of domestication!

What kind of home are we looking for?
A patient and kind person who will give him the space to find his feet and who might allow for a few accidents in the home while he is housetrained.

Sighthound experience would be great of course but if potential adopters could at least take the time to do some reading on the breed we’d be grateful. Lurchers cannot be off lead in public places given that they can be a danger to small animals so a garden would be nice for off lead zoomies or someone with the means to take him to a secure field for off lead fun on occasion.

We do not rehome dogs found as strays to families with children less than 12 years of age.
