Important: Please read our latest COVID guidelines before you apply to adopt this lovely hound.
This handsome young man is bouncy saluki-cross Crosby, who’s ended up in our care before his first birthday. Still very much a puppy, he’s keen to find a home where there are people around most of the time, and ideally another well-adjusted dog who can cope with his playfulness and show him the domestic ropes. Originally found straying, he’s already well on the way to becoming a professional pet, having spent some time in foster with two other lurchers. His foster mum reports that he settled in really well, was clean in the house and slept through the night. As you can see from her pictures below, he loved hanging out with his foster sisters too!
A happy chap who enjoys the company of people and dogs, Crosby could live with children over the age of 11, in a quiet suburban or rural area. He cannot co-habit with cats, small furry animals or chickens, however. He’ll also need to be kept on the lead in wildlife-rich areas. A large, secure garden where he can burn off some of his boundless energy would be greatly appreciated!
Due to his difficult start in life, Crosby does have some health issues that his new family will need to support. He has an unusual gait due to minor deformities in his back legs, probably due to malnutrition. This is unlikely to cause him future issues, but should be monitored. He also appears to have retained testicles, which may require a procedure to remove them in six months. Forever Hounds will cover the cost of the surgery, but his family need to be willing to nurse him back to health.
This is a great opportunity to adopt a joyous young hound, who will grow into a loyal, loving companion. If you have the time and energy to keep up with Crosby, and can provide the lashings of love he deserves, then do get in touch!
