My favourite thing is:
Luna is a 14-month-old lurcher with fabulous fawn merle markings dispersed through her creamy white coat. This beautiful girl has always lived in a home and is used to savvy children over 10 years old. Luna is clean in the house and likes to sleep in her open crate den of an evening, though I’m sure she wouldn’t say no to a spot in the bedroom if you’d prefer.
Luna has been well socialised and is friendly with other dogs, though she can be a little too friendly and persistent when out walking – she really loves to play and doesn’t understand why other dogs don’t feel the same. Still, she very much enjoys her time with doggy friends of all shapes and sizes and has stayed often with a dog sitter who has a dog, Luna appeared to love having another dog around and pending introductions may be able to live with another dog.
Luna is used to a lot of exercise, getting a long walk of 1-3 hours daily on top of quick 15-minute block walks at each end of the day. She’s currently on lead for these but has been let off in the past, she shows good promise for recall. She does have a high chase drive and so would benefit from a large garden and local secure paddocks to allow her off-lead time. Luna walks well on the lead as her home spent a lot of time teaching her loose lead walking, though she still may pull if she sees something to chase.
Luna has been to lots of training classes and knows all sorts of tricks, including “sit” “go to bed” “give paw” and “turn around” which asks her to spin around. I’m certain she would love to continue her training and she’s much-adored in her training school.
Luna is used to both urban and rural walking, her daily walks consist of an urban block walk and walks through fields and woods that are local. She definitely prefers the fields and woods, she’s an adventurer!
Luna has a scar on her back right leg where she ran into barbed wire when off lead, she has fully recovered and it does not affect her in any way.
Luna would love a home where there is a clear routine, she likes to know things happen on time. She can be left for up to 3 hours at the moment and we would expect this to be possible in her new home with a little work to build the time up as she settles. Luna enjoys visitors but would like a quiet home where she can relax. Luna can live with savvy children over 10 years old as she’s quite bouncy.
