Meet Lady, our little lady lurcher who is living at our shelter but really wants a warm fire and a comfortable bed that she can call her very own and where she can happily spend her senior years.
Lady is very small for a lurcher (more like a whippet) and is an older girl, estimated to be around 7 or 8 years old. She is the most gentle little dog ever, who just wants a few cuddles and scratches behind her ears, and enjoys a few short walks during the day. She is very gentle on the lead and is absolutely spotless indoors. She can experience a little stiffness in her legs when she first stands up, but this eases out after a few minutes of walking…she has no physical issue that could be found when x-rayed. She is very happy in the company of another dog and her ideal home would be one where she will get loads of love, warmth and comfort, possibly the company of another nice dog, and where she can enjoy her retirement which she so richly deserves to do. Older dogs can be hard to place as everyone seems to want a puppy, but the older dogs are so easy in that they are usually trained, quieter, won’t eat your furniture and slippers, and are so contented once they are comfortable. Lady needed some veterinary attention when she came to us…whoever her former owners were neglected the fact that she had an umbilical hernia which we have had repaired. She also had to have a few teeth extracted and two other benign lumps removed, howere she is now recovering very nicely and is hoping that someone will offer her everything she so richly deserves.
For anyone who is looking for a quiet, gentle, loving older dog we think Lady could be the one for you.
Lady has been vaccinated, spayed and chipped (chip number 977000008975428, origin Ireland).
