Lassie – 8 year old female Lurcher

Lassie is an 8 year old female Lurcher. She has come to the rescue with her daughter Lady. She’s probably about 24″ to the shoulder and about 24kg. Lassie is quite laid back. In the kennels, she’s relaxed and settled, and we usually find her asleep on the bed. Lassie has probably never lived in a house before, but we get the impression she’d like a sofa and a fire.

Lassie shares her kennel with her daughter Lady without any issues over food or toys. She is fine when walking with other dogs, and her previous owner also reported that she has no problems with other dogs. We can’t decide if she’d be best rehomed with her daughter or not – Lady annoys Lassie but they also curl up together and rely on each other.

If not rehomed together she would need another dog – male, similar age, laid-back, but with some life left to play. We have been told Lassie is okay with older kids, travelling in the car and being left home alone.

Lassie has some basic obedience, which she will recall (in our yard without rabbits, squirrels etc) and also knows sit, and bed Lassie was previously used as a working dog; she will not be suitable to live with cats or other small furies.

Lassie has a previously broken front leg which has reset at the wrist so it doesn’t bend. This doesn’t seem to cause her any issues at the moment; she still plays happily with her daughter, jumps onto the bed and copes easily with 1-hour walks. However, she may suffer from arthritis in the future. Lassie is at LURCHER LINK RESCUE, near Halifax, West Yorkshire.
