When Cranberry arrived in the care of SDR as an unclaimed stray via a local pound, she was incredibly scared and worried. Cranberry is very 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.

Cranberry enjoys her time out of the kennel and loves playing in our enclosed gardens. Like many Lurchers, Cranberry 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.

Cranberry has been mixed with a few different dogs since she has been with us. She has shown to be very fearful when meeting other dogs, especially if they are boisterous around her. She is more comfortable with calm dogs, but she is still very nervous and will sometimes hide behind her handler if it gets too much. In the future Cranberry may be able to live with another dog, however we feel that at present it would be best for her to be the only dog in the home so she can have the time and space to gain her confidence with her new owners.

Cranberry 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 fearful dogs, Cranberry 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?
