Enzo is a 4 year old castrated male Whippet cross. Enzo came in to the rescue as an unclaimed stray, so sadly we have no history on him. Enzo is a lovely boy, he is good to be left for up to 5 hours, is crate trained, he is clean in the house, however he was an entire male when he came in to the rescue, so if he goes in to a house that smells of dog, he will try to mark, but if you tell him no he does stop, this habit will die down as the testosterone wears off!
Enzo is great with all dogs bar small fluffy, yappy dogs (chihuahua types) This is down to his one negative point, his prey drive!! Enzo has a very strong prey drive, he has now been taught to wear a muzzle (This is to be on the safe side) He will ignore horses, but will chase if they run, he is not good with sheep, rabbits or cats. Enzo does pull on the lead, and is great off the lead, however his recall will disappear if he see’s something to chase.
We always walk Enzo on part of the forest where you can see for miles, that way we can call him back and put him on the lead if we see anything he might want to run after. This process seems to work well. At home Enzo is a delight, he loves a cuddle and is great with children over the age of 8 years old, ironically he has no interest in chickens and ducks! Enzo needs to go to a home that has experience with high prey drive sight hounds.
Enzo is fully vaccinated, micro chipped, neutered, up to date with all flea treatment and wormer and comes with 5 weeks free insurance.
