Gracie is a delicate blue lurcher with a fantastic fun-loving temperament! Gracie is about 2 years old and absolutely loves to play. She can’t wait to meet new people and thinks everyone is her new best friend! But although she is always raring to go, Gracie can be a cuddler too – she is very gentle and loves a good snuggle.

Gracie will need a family who understand that she will need continued training to keep her brain busy as she is very clever and needs to have things to do! Gracie can become frustrated when she sees some dogs out on walks, and can become quite vocal at times if she forgets herself! She has worked on this whilst staying with Forever Hounds Trust but will need support to continue her learning with her new family. She would benefit from a home with people who are willing and able to do this. She would like to live somewhere with quieter walks as she can find busy places overwhelming at times, and would love a home where she is able to have a good run in a secure garden to burn off her energy with some good play sessions. Gracie is always ready to join in with anything that she can do with people, so if you’re excited about weekend hikes, going running, nights on the sofa watching films or all of these activities, Gracie will be right by your side.

Gracie does need support at first when meeting other dogs but once they have made friends she loves to go for walks with them and explore. Gracie could live with another dog pending successful introductions. She could be left for short periods once she has settled in. She will love a home that is able to give her time and energy and lots of fun!! 

We know you’ll wonder what you did without Gracie once she is in your life!
