Adoption Status: Available
Foster Status: In Foster Care
DOB: Approx January 2016
Breed: Lurcher (Whippet x Beardie?)
Size: Small Medium (currently approx 18-20kg, he's not a big guy)
Fencing Requirements: Minimum 1.8m of secure, dog-proof fencing around the home
Hobbies: Going on adventures, hunting rabbits, cuddles on the sofa in front of the fire, gardening (well, digging actually!), going for rides in the car, WALKIES (he'd make a fab running/hiking buddy), being up high (Nev loves to climb stuff - up on the bar leaner, into the back of your car, on top of the firewood pile...)
Good Habits: Clean, smart, quiet, crate trained, toilet trained, social with everybody and everything (except pigs), gentle, affectionate but not needy
Bad Habits: Super social with most dogs, but is dominant towards entire male dogs.
Personality Type: Soft and sweet, an absolute honey with people BUT he does have hunting instincts with small furry things.
Special Requirements: Daily exercise is an absolute must, and Neville requires a low-fat diet as he has suffered from severe Pancreatitis previously.
Ideal Home: A calm and quiet household with daily walks and adventures, then just relaxing around the home, preferably with day-time company or another dog for company. Older children (over 14) or a child free home would be best - he likes his people calm and quiet, just like him.
Adoption Fee: $285
Neville is one out of the box. He is soft and gentle and the loveliest dog but he's got character too. He's a handsome and happy guy, keen to climb up beside you for a chest rub but happy to do his own thing too - he's not needy but he IS a best mate sort of guy.
Neville deserves the very best home, and we are determined to find that home for him. He's great on lead, great in the car, a GREAT size (that perfect small medium) and pretty much all round great...although his new hooman will need to be mindful of his masculine attitude towards some entire male dogs and take care to prevent altercations. He loves being active and getting out for a spot of exercise so would LOVE to be someone's walking, running or hiking buddy - he's not an around the block sort of guy.
We love this guy, he's the ultimate package wrapped up in a hairy little body. Perfect for those looking for a best bud to share their life with. He's loyal and loving and eager to be there for ya, without being in your face. We can't wait to find our Nev his forever human. Neville wants to be loved, and he will give 200% back to you.
Can you offer Neville games, adventures, fun, quality food, a warm bed, regular flea and worm treatments, cuddles, and good conversation?
Do you have an understanding for what individual dogs need, and are you committed to providing for those needs?
As with all Pound Hounds, Neville must be allowed inside the home (this includes sleeping) so he can really be part of the family.
ADDITIONAL INFO: No young children, No cats
