Ebba

  • Lurcher
  • Female
  • Somerset

When beautiful Ebba first came to us, she was really lacking on confidence, but is gradually coming out of herself. She likes to be near people, and is getting used to being touched, although she’s not sure about cuddles yet.

A striking tri-colour lurcher, Ebba was found straying in Ireland, so we’re not exactly sure of her age – her vet check suggested she is around four years old, but she is as energetic and playful as a dog half her age (not that four is old!). She’s sociable with other dogs, and could live with a canine pal, but they will need to be quite confident as her play can be a bit rough and tumble. She loves toys, and is happiest when someone is throwing them for her.

Ebba can be worried about new environments and experiences, until she learns that they are safe. She will need time to get used to new things at her own pace, so needs a home where she can come out of her shell in her own time, with adults and teenagers only – ideally people who have experience of dogs. Ebba really deserves chance of a new life with a loving family – could you give it to her?
