Hello! My name is Gertie, I’m almost 2 years old and a Lurcher type.
I’m a sweet girl and a firm favourite with our walkers, but I can take a little while to trust new people, more so men, than women. I adore the staff and have formed lovely bonds with the carers. I am muzzled when I am out in public as I have a very strong chase drive – the muzzle doesn’t worry me though and I am comfortable wearing one, so do not let that put you off as I am such a wonderful girl! I have lived with another dog previously and could live with another dog pending some successful dog mixes. The other dog would need to be playful but also give me space when I want it. I will need to have my home alone time built up gradually as I may suffer from some separation anxiety, but hopefully once I’m settled in my new home this will improve. I have been provided with a crate in my kennel as I like to ‘hide’ away at times and this is something that can be transferred into my new home. I would benefit from further training, this will not only strengthen the bond with my new owners, but it will help with my confidence and provide mental stimulation too. In an understanding and calm home, I will make a wonderful companion as I am a fun, loving and active girl. Can you offer me a loving and permanent new home?
