Ella is a lovely one year old saluki cross with great potential. She’s super clever, eager to please and loves playing with her human friends. She’s very pretty, but please read on before you are tempted to apply for her based on looks alone…..
Ella has been in a home previously and it really didn’t take her long to be a really good girl! Although we can never guarantee behaviours in new environments, in her previous home she was housetrained, slept well through the night, was respectful around furniture and was ‘easy’ to live with in the house.
Ella’s main struggle in life is her behaviour around other dogs – she can find the company of dogs quite worrying which means she can do a lot of shouting and can be ‘silly’ on her lead. She has been working very hard on this with our behaviourist, but this work will need to continue and there is a possibility it may never be conquered. Ella will need to be walked on a lead, in quieter areas away from lots of other dogs. A safe enclosed garden to have a run around in is a must, and new owners may wish to consider renting a secure field to allow Ella to have a zoomie blast!
Lead reactivity is not for the faint hearted, so Ella will need a home with ample experience of lead reactivity preferably with salukis/saluki crosses. People interested in training and behaviour are a must for Ella to help her with these issues and provide her with both mental and physical stimulation – Ella LOVES to learn and play! She will also need someone home most of the time with any time left being built up slowly.
Princess Ella really is the stunner, but please DO NOT apply if you don’t meet the criteria mentioned above, you will only be left disappointed. Whilst Ella will need ongoing support from her new family, when she knows you, she’s just delightful to be around! She has a lovely temperament and a really cheeky personality which is sure to make her new family smile!
