Pogo has come into WARS after being found as a stray and was sadly never claimed. He likes to make friends of the 2 legged and 4 legged variety, however, can be a little shy in new situations. He is abit of a gentle giant, he walks well on his lead and loves affection. He is not really treat or toy orientated, so this can make training a little harder, instead he craves attention from his handlers. In saying that, he does like a bit of a play with a soft squeaky toy, if the mood takes him.
Pogo will need a home with a full enclosed garden, with minimum 6ft fences. He could possibly live with another suitable dog, however no cats of small furries. He would benefit from a calm, patient home, to help him build his confidence and taking him to training and socialisation classes would be recommended.
Pogo is a Lurcher type. Lurchers are crossbreeds so their temperaments and behaviours can be influenced by other breed traits. He is still learning but is bright eager to learn more so dog training classes would be strongly advised. He, like many Lurcher types has a strong prey drive so it’s important that this is channeled in the right way.
