Dewey is a loveable lurcher who was found straying, came into our care, and is now looking for a forever home to call his own. We think he may have a hint of German shepherd or Belgian malinois in his ancestry due to his handsome looks and soft, downy coat. This six-year-old lad has only just arrived with us, but we’ve already fallen head over heals in love with him. In fact, that’s why we’ve named him Dewey: it means beloved!
This affectionate lad returns that love in bucket loads. He invites you to come in for a cuddle and lavishes kisses upon you, curling his body into you to offer maximum fuss potential. He’s impossible not to adore! Dewey is just as gentle and affectionate with children, and would make a great family pet. He’s playful, but generally far more interested in investigating the world around him and seeing who’s available to give him a fuss. Dewey has been friendly with almost all the dogs he’s met, though he’s understandably concerned by dogs who are not displaying social behaviours. For the time being, Dewey will need to stay on lead and continue to practice his greetings around other dogs.
It’s clear that Dewey has lived in a home before – he’s clean in his kennel, and we expect him to adjust to domestic life relatively quickly, given time and space to settle in. He enjoys his food, but due to his background as a stray, is a little nervous of taking treats from people. Dewey will need a calm home where the people understand how scary fast movements can be – he will flinch if you move too fast around him, but with love and patience he should grow in confidence.
Dewey enjoys a dip and has had a great time splashing around in a local lake and stream. He visited some stables recently and had a lovely afternoon tootling around and meeting lots of new people. He was sensible but cautious around the horses, and merrily helped himself to a couple of their carrots!
This adorable hound was born on Valentine’s Day, so it’s no surprise that he’s won all of our hearts. If you can you find a place for him in yours, he’ll give you his in return.
