This is Lenny the 18 month old Lurcher. His mother arrived from Romania heavily pregnant and gave birth in rescue. Some of the litter were not rehomed and Lenny was one of those babies. The rescue who took them had a lot of land, but was not expecting them to form a family pack and run riot all over the place! It was therefore necessary to split mum and pups and each one went to separate rescues to allow for training and to split this unfortunate bond up.
Since getting here, Lenny has settled very well. He loves his food and likes living with other dogs. He has had no reaction to either cats or small animals. Lenny is diagnosed with ‘Small Eye Syndrome’ (Microphthalmia) and is blind, but copes absolutely fine. It is as the name suggests. His eyes are small and do not work. He was born with this condition. We will be looking for a home for him to live with a spayed bitch as he does prefer to live with other animals. Lenny could be homed with teenage children (13 years plus), but no younger as care has to be taken not to leave doors or gates open in which case he could escape without supervision.
Lenny must be kept on lead when out for his walks. This will be for life as he loses his handler very quickly and will run off and away. In the home he much prefers to hang around his owner, but can be left for short periods of time on his own. He is not destructive when left and does not have any form of separation anxiety.
Lenny has been castrated, fully vaccinated, microchipped, wormed and flea treated. A homecheck will be required and a minimum adoption fee of £150 applies.
