Playful Jay

  • Lurcher
  • Male
  • Needs an active home
  • Somerset

Jay just loves to play! This adorable pup, who’s less than a year old, loves people, other dogs, toys, and even just zooming around by himself! Happy and outgoing, he’s a waggy little boy who will lean in for cuddles and is pleased with any amount of fuss. He’s clever and energetic, and will thrive in a family that has time to continue his basic training – and even teach this young dog new tricks!

Jay has lived in a home before, with cats and younger children, but they didn’t have the time and energy to keep up with him. He would do best in a home with experience of raising puppies, with older children, as he can be very enthusiastic in his play. This cheeky cream saluki-cross lurcher could live with another dog – as long as it was happy to charge around with him all day! He’d prefer not to be left alone for long periods, so someone who works from home would be perfect.

Our little Jay has so much love to give, we’re hoping that special family comes along soon to give him the active, happy life he deserves. If you think it could be you, give us a call today!
