loopylou created the topic: Deerhound X at Battersea
This is a Deerhound x bitch who is at Battersea Old Windsor. Her carer is a neighbour of ours and so she asked if we can help find her a suitable home.
She is not very tall and needs socialisation but is very sweet. She came in with a litter which have been homed bar one bitch.
She has had a tough time and could really do with moving into a home.

Here is the link to her www.battersea.org.uk/go.rm?id=20170 Her name is Sarah Jane

She cannot apparently be rehomed with other dogs which is a shame as I would have loved her otherwise! Anyone out there currently dogless? She looks like a sweetie despite her problems.

According to my neighbour she just needs a bit more work with socialising but is ok with others so I don't know if that's just batterseas standard post on their site...
I will find out some more...

what a shame she cannot be rehomed with other dogs and children, not that I can take in anymore, no, I really can't!
She is very pretty I am sure she won't be in kennels too long.

She looks lovely. I was just told about her as I posted asking advice on getting a deerhound cos I live in London in the Introduce Youself section of the forum. Why on earth does it say "because of her breed she will need to be muzzled and on a lead when out and about?!"

Because they have a strong chase/hunt instinct and will chase cats/rabbits/squirrels etc - many lurchers actually end up in rescue organisations because they kill cats! But this type of smaller dog is easier to exercise in a reasonably sized garden using ball games and toys to de-bounce them, then can be taken out for walks on the lead. They also really enjoy Agility clubs/competitions and that's a great way of exhausting them! I have had several rescue lurchers and they can become loving and loyal companions, but in an urban environment you would need to work hard on training - I mean for years! If you can keep it up, going to classes etc (where the distractions of working with other dogs nearby is vital) as you bond they become very eager to please and get much better at recall - my last one was totally reliable with other animals/livestock in the last ten years of her life.

There's two totally gorgeous bedlington/whippet crosses on the Greyhound Gap rescue site, they look exactly like miniature deerhounds - Bernie and Frankie - I am so tempted - someone please rescue them because my husband will divorce me........ :laugh:
