Can Live with Another Dog
WE ARE NO LONGER TAKING ANY MORE ENQUIRIES FOR TED (10AM 28/3/21)
Ted is an elegant, friendly and handsome 5 year old whippet. He is on the lookout for a new home!
Typical of a whippet, he can be a tad nervous and wary of new situations until he is has had time to suss it out. When he first arrived at the centre, he lacked the confidence to venture out without some moral support from his kennel buddies. Now though, he is enthusiastic to go out and explore the outdoors and loves having a good sniff round our local woods.
When he isn't following his nose, he loves company and a gentle fuss. When he gets to know you, he likes to sit as close as possible to you!
He is from a working background and has only ever lived in an outdoor kennel. As a result he will require some pointers on how to behave in a home, including toilet training. This will require someone to be around for the majority of the day, at least at first. A large and escape proof garden is essential.
Due to his sometimes skittish nature, we are only re-homing him to an adult only home or if there are kids, they must be sensible and dog savvy.
Ted cannot live with cats but could potentially live with another dog.

WE HAVE MORE DOGS IN NEED
On average, we have 400 animals come into our shelter every year. Please take a look at some of our dogs looking for loving homes and see if you can find a friend for life. Where appropriate, all of our animals are vaccinated, microchipped and neutered. We also give each animal a behavioural assessment to identify their needs and help you find your perfect companion.
