Alexander and Orlov are 4-5 year old male Cross-Breeds. They are super friendly Crossbreed boys are looking for a home together or individually. Originally from Portugal. They were found at just a few days old in a bin. They were hand reared along with some abandoned kittens. The lady who reared them tells me she had 17 cats, and as young pups the boys played happily amongst them. The groundwork with cats has clearly been done, and with careful introductions and supervision, I’m sure they could live with dog savvy cats again, though they have not seen cats now for a long time.
They came to as a very bonded pair, they had spent some time kenneled prior to arrival so we’re quite wild indoors at first. They have calmed down a lot, and settle down nicely now – as long as everyone else does. But as young clowns they are prone to boisterous excited behaviour and if wound up. The boys are clean indoors and have not been destructive, but if left unsupervised with cushions and small movable items I suspect they could become part of some pretty exciting games. ( only what one would expect from a couple of youngsters left alone to party).
They walk pretty well on a lead. Their recalls are good, but as sighthound type dogs we are selective about where they run free. They adore other dogs and love to play. The boys are living with dogs of all sizes. It would be lovely if they could stay together, but we are well aware training two dogs at once is hard work, and they can be a handful, so will consider applications for individual homes. Ideally if separated there will already be at least one other resident dog. The boys are very friendly and will make lovely family dogs. However they may be a bit bouncy for toddlers unused to dogs.
Note: it goes without saying that ALL dogs should be supervised around children, and ALL children should be taught how to behave with and around dogs. Tail pulling, poking, sitiing on or climbing on dogs is NEVER acceptable behaviour.
Alexander And Orlov are living it up with Fionna and her pack at the Sanctuary, near Kidwelly, South Wales, whist they wait for their forever home.
We will require you to complete our pre-adoption questionnaire before we can proceed. All applicants will be vetted, & will need to be able to travel to the Sanctuary near Kidwelly, South Wales.
