Alfie and Ollie are sadly looking for a new home as their owner is unable to keep them with her any longer. Aflie is 6 yr old Greyhound/Saluki cross, Ollie is an 8yr old white and brindle Greyhound. Their current owner has asked us to try to re home them together and has told us a little about them:-
Alfie has lived with Ollie all of his life he looks for him when he isn't there and leans on him when they standing still. I know that it will be incredibly difficult to re home them together but they are very special family dogs they need children to love and play with them, try if you can.
Alfie is a beautiful loyal boy he just want fuss and a lovely walk his eyes are gorgeous and bore deep into your sole, he is fantastic with children and all people, he will pull on his lead if he sees a cat, however he will stop when told to and will come to call. I have had him since he was 14 weeks old and he has grown to be a gorgeous boy who I adore. He travels well in the car even on long journeys; he will sit, give paw and lie down to command.
Ollie is a gorgeous loyal boy who loves people and will run up to them wagging his tail for a fuss, he comes to call when off his lead and walks beautifully when on it.
Ollie is going to need somebody with a little more patience than normal; his fear of very loud noises but specifically fireworks makes him panic he is terrified! The best thing to do is to let him hide under a bed, here he feels safe and will come out again when he is happy it's all over.
If Ollie is left long periods with out going for a wee he will leak it onto his bed, he is not incontinent and the vet seems to think it may be an age thing the vet checked him for diabetes which was negative, so he will just need somebody that understands this and doesn't mind washing his bedding on a regular basis.
Ollie also has a fear of motorways with small car journeys his is fine and will travel happily in the boot with a dog guard with small squares or he will put his head through and get stuck. If a motorway journey is absolutely necessary then I have in the past got light sedation for him from the vet and this has calmed him enough to get him through the journey.
I love my Ollie very much and the person who settles with him must understand his problems. He is laid back will give so much love and fuss he just needs to be understood.
If you think you could give these boys a forever home please give Pip or Linda a call.
