Sookie is a stunning 7 year old lurcher girl who needs an understanding and experienced home.
When Sookie landed with us it was easy to see she had not had a good time and was angry with the world. She was extremely people and dog reactive and was so overly sensitive that she got upset very easily. With time, patience and love now she adores people and greets everyone she meets like a long lost friend. It is easy to see though that where dogs are concerned she is still very fearful however after lots of work from our wonderful staff and volunteers in the main now if a dog does not react to her on the walk she can be managed to pass them working to keep her attention on you.
Sookie will need an experienced patient home to continue her through her progress. Sookie needs to be an only dog but we feel she could easily adapt as long as someone was around in the main in the beginning to work alongside us to settle her in in the right manner. Due to the worry we have seen in the past we feel older children who are dog savy and aged 10 plus is a must. We feel that Sookie will settle into home life relatively easily and with the right owner not phased by her difficulties outdoors will learn to thrive in confidence when she trusts her careers to keep her safe.
Sookie is clean in her kennel, walks well out on her lead and travels like a dream. She is NOT cat friendly. Sookie is vaccinated, kc vaccinated, de flead, de wormed, spayed and microchipped.
If you are interested in offering Sookie a home please in the first instance complete the pre adoption questionnaire.
Please note due to the current situation with Covid 19 priority will be given to homes in and around Stoke on Trent and Staffordshire. Other areas may be considered but this will very much be on a case by case basis and at the rescues discretion as some areas are not tenable for us to carry out necessary due diligence in at the moment.
