Important: Please read our latest COVID guidelines before you apply to adopt this lovely hound
Arty is a handsome 3 year-old saluki cross, who is a new arrival therefore still under assessment. However, he has already proven himself to be social with staff he has met.
Whilst he is comfortable in human company, he can be a little uncertain around other dogs when out and about. To prevent any potential reactivity, adopters should have an awareness of canine body language to check he is coping with any situation he might find himself in. The behaviour team will provide support in this respect. Arty has previously lived in a home with another dog, however his assessment is still ongoing with regards to suitability.
Arty will need a semi-rural or rural home as he has displayed some anxiety with passing traffic and sudden noises. He will need adopters, preferably with previous sighthound experience, who are committed to following his training and management plan. Arty responds really well to both food rewards and verbal praise as he loves a fuss!
