Brady – 9 years old

  • Lurcher
  • Can live with children, any age
  • Dozing
  • Needs to be an only dog

Very sadly Brady has come into our care after 6 years in a home.  He is 9 years old, around 28 inches to the shoulder, he is a beautiful Lurcher.

After 5 years in the home he developed separation anxiety and unfortunately it wasn’t dealt with and was then never left.  A year later and he has landed back into kennels which really is no place for a dog desperate for human company.

He can be walked around other dogs including our resident Shih Tzu but does like his own space.  He would adore a home that didn’t leave him, he doesn’t worry who stays home with him just as long a someone does, this may be worked with over time, with the correct Behavioural Training and a home prepared to give this awesome boy the time he needs to adjust., OR he would suit someone who would be able to take him to work with them.

He travels well in the car and has excellent recall (he doesn’t leave your side and if he does, he runs back when called) but as he is worried about strange dogs he would prefer not to go off lead unless it was somewhere safe and secure for him.

Brady would like a home with no other dogs as that’s what he feels most comfortable with, he can live with children of any age though!

Brady does walk well on the lead, clean in his kennel and will shower you with love, cuddles and kisses.

He could suit an older person if they were happy to walk a healthy, fit lurcher out and about (it doesn’t have to be miles!) or have someone to walk him if they feel less steady on their feet.

Brady may want to sleep on your bedroom floor but in time may be comfortable to sleep anywhere in the house you are not.

No dog deserves to be in kennels and without a family, but definitely not a 9 year old used to being in the comfort of a home.  We know he is not going to be the easiest dog to home due to his ‘quirks’ but every night we go to bed with our fingers crossed that there is a very special and loving home out there waiting just for him……
