Nell has come into WARS after being retired from racing. She is a lovely, laid back girl who is anyone’s friend, especially if you have a treat in your hand or pocket. She doesn’t have good manners and will jump up at everyone she meets, but the staff are teaching her this is not the way to do things. When food is invloved she learns fast. She is great with other dogs, happy to play or just mooch around. She is very foodie, so you need to be prepared for a little bit of food pinching, so sideboards need to be cleared and pockets empty.
Nell will want a home where people are around for a good part of the day, and able to take her out for some nice walks. She would enjoy an ample sized enclosed garden to potter around in and could live with another compatible dog and/or a cat. She could also live with children of a suitable age and would make a wonderful companion to any family.
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.
