Rocky has come into WARS as sadly his owners were no longer able to care for him. He is still a young boy with plenty to learn including basic commands and further socialisation skills. He is like a lanky teenager, especially when he is trying to catch a ball. So far he appears good with other dogs, this assessment is still ongoing. He is known to be destructive in the previous home though, so his new family will need to work on channelling his energies into more appropriate activities.
Rocky will need a home experienced with the Lurcher breed and in channelling their energies. The family need to be not to house proud as he may want to chew some objects around the home, so this will need to work on from day dot. He will need a garden with minimum 6 ft fences as he is a tall dog. He could live with children 8+ as he has done in the previous. He could possibly live with another dog, however no cats or small furries.
Lurchers are crossbreeds so their temperaments and behaviours can be influenced by other breed traits. Like most Lurchers, Rocky would enjoy a good snooze in front of the fire in between racing around the garden. Being young, 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 channelled in the right way.
