If you adopt Floyd (or any of our dogs), you will be entitled to receive FREE behavioural support from our qualified team of behaviourists for any issues you might need help with during their lifetime. Further information will be given when homing Floyd. Please note, this support is only available for dogs adopted from Forever Hounds Trust.
Fabulous Floyd is a laid back lurcher boy of around 9 years old. Originally a rescue, Floyd has been living as a much loved pet for the last 4 years. His current owner has made the difficult decision to find a new home for Floyd, due to a change in circumstances which means he will be spending large amounts of time on his own in the near future. Floyd is a loving, affectionate dog who is used to having someone around most of the time – although he is able to spend a few hours at home alone, it would be unfair to expect him to be on his own for most of the time.
Floyd is an easy-going dog who is very settled in a home environment, and a pleasure to live with. He is fully housetrained and spends most of his day snoozing under a blanket! Floyd enjoys his walks and is a dream on-lead – he can happily walk for around an hour if needed, but is very content with just short walks morning and evening. He is able to run off-lead in secure areas or places like the beach, where there aren’t likely to be any rabbits or similar small furries – otherwise he will take off after them, and he has has injured himself in this way a number of times! Floyd can be worried in the car until he realises he’s going somewhere fun (rather than the vet!).
Although Floyd has always been an only dog, he’s friendly with others on walks and has been happy to share his home with visiting dogs in the past. He’s not always a fan of barky, boisterous dogs and will tend to run away from them, but would probably be able to live with another calm, gentle dog. He could live with older, respectful children but would prefer a home without very young children. Floyd is very good with people and always happy to welcome visitors into his home!
Floyd is very scared of fireworks and will tend to shake and try to hide. He wears a muzzle for veterinary examinations just as a precaution – due to having had painful injuries in the past, he can understandably be worried about going to the vet!
This lovely boy will be staying with his current family whilst we look for his new home, so any potential adopters must be willing to visit him at home in the Bristol area. Floyd is a truly gorgeous boy who will make his new family very happy! If you’re interested in offering him a home, please get in touch.
