When Yana arrived in the care of SDR as an unclaimed stray via a local pound, she was incredibly scared and worried. She has since been rehomed from us but unfortunately due to her not getting along with the cat in the home, she was returned. Yana can be hand shy and will cower to the floor when you try to interact with her. Even though she is worried at first, it doesn’t take her long to start to trust her carers and she has already started to show her sweet and playful side. She loves to have affection and once she is confident with her handler she may even roll over for a belly rub.

Yana enjoys her time out of the kennel and loves playing in our enclosed gardens. Like many Lurchers, Yana enjoys her zoomies and she will need a large, fully secure garden so she can enjoy running and playing in her new home. She will need to have a solid and reliable recall taught to her before she can go off lead in open spaces.

Yana has been mixed with a few different dogs since she has been with us. She has shown to be quite playful, which can be too much for smaller dogs, as she does sometimes want to chase. As such we would not rehome Yana with a small dog. She is a little nervous when meeting bigger dogs, especially if they are too boisterous for her and will sometimes hide behind her handler if it gets too much. Therefore we would recommend Yana could live with another dog of a similar size that has a calm temperament and would let her gain her confidence.

Yana doesn’t seem to have any previous training. Once she has gained her confidence with her new owner, teaching her some new commands will help with her bonding process. She is highly motivated by treats and works well for them so it won’t take her long to learn new skills.

In a home with owners who have experience with nervous dogs, Yana will make a wonderful and no doubt loving and active addition to the family.

Can you offer this lovely girl a loving and permanent new home?
