Frazzle is a lovely and talkative boy who has a lot to say about the world. Frazzle took a couple of days to settle in and was a bit stressed having his life completely changed. However now with regular walks, meeting new people, playing ball or racing around with other Lurchers in the paddock he seems a lot more settled, and his appetite is slowly coming back.
He finds himself here due to no fault of his own but being a bit too much for his elderly owner who struggled to hold him on walks and wasn’t possible for his family to help him out due to having their own dogs.
He is a friendly and sociable boy with pretty good manners when being introduced other than sometimes barking at you, as if to say too much talking and waiting and not enough moving or doing. He doesn’t mind a fuss and attention but is a bit restless unless after exercise where he will have a cuddle and stay still.
Don’t be fooled by his slightly greying muzzle. Frazzle is active and can be strong when he gets going on his walks. Frazzle isn’t fazed by much on his walks but does bark and pull when seeing other dogs. Frazzle does have a high prey drive and like most Lurchers uses his nose well on walks and will try and chase cats, rabbits, or squirrels if off lead. Frazzle is not high energy but would enjoy a good run around off lead when it can be done safely. However, for the most part, Frazzle would enjoy frequent walks or adventures to somewhere new.
Frazzle is friendly with other dogs and could potentially live with a female sighthound. He is very vocal and a little bit chaotic to start off with but doesn’t have a lot of stamina, eventually calming down. His behaviour could potentially put off some dogs and has come off as rude with his very forward greeting with an awkward play style.
Frazzle loves food as well as playing with the flirt pole and squeaky balls. His appetite is still low at the moment but should come back when more comfortable. Currently, Frazzle will spit out most treats when given to him.
He will need some basic training but has lived in a home before. This will include some work on his lead walking and building a relationship and engagement with his new owners. Which will also help him be a bit calmer when seeing other dogs out and about on his walks.
Frazzle can be left but isn’t used to being alone for more than 2-3 hours so with this in mind he may need his home alone time built up slowly. When left he would mostly play with his toys but could be vocal or occasionally steal food if it was left out which might have added to his extra weight.
Frazzle is looking for a loving home that has a secure garden with owners who have had dogs before and understand that Frazzle might not be perfect and have a few quirks or two.
Frazzle will require a minimum of two visits from everyone in the household ahead of the adoption process.
The adoption fee for Frazzle is £200.
