About Bones

Bones is a very strong dog who isn’t really aware of his size and does have his moments of silliness! He will need an experienced owner who will have the time to give him lots of exercise and play to keep him stimulated in the home. New owners must have the time and patience to work with Bones to improve his sociability and introduce him slowly to new situations and environments. Because of his Lurcher nature and dislike of other animals, Bones will need to be kept on lead in public areas. He would however benefit from someone who is able to take him to a training school where there is a fenced in exercise enclosure so he can stretch his legs off lead.

Bones has weekly sessions with our behaviourist, and is currently on a training program which he will need to continue in the home. He is proving to be a very intelligent boy, and loves learning and being rewarded for doing things right.

What Bones Needs from his Forever Home

Bones will need to be the only pet in the house as he does not get on with other dogs or cats. He will make a really loving companion to the right owners; can you give him a second chance?

We’d love to introduce you to him!
