Lassie has come into WARS after being retired from racing. She has lived in Ireland and Cumbria so a bit of a jet setter. She is a peoples dog and will chose to be around humans rather than other dogs. She walks well on a lead and will lap up any attention and fuss coming her way. She loves her food, so be mindful you don’t leave your lunch lying around.
She will want a family at home for a good part of the day as she is a sociable girl and she will need a fully enclosed garden with a minimum 6ft fence all the way around. We feel she would be best as the only dog as she can be unsure at times and prefers her own space. She would suit a home with children 10+.
Trailhounds are very adaptable dogs who make very good family pets. They have fantastic temperaments and tend to be great around children, other dogs and other animals. They need plenty of exercise but in once in the home love nothing more than curling up in front of the fire. They do however, love a smell.. so their noses are likely to be found centimetres off the ground, so recall often needs some work. They are relatively quick learners who are highly motivated by food.
