About me

Hi everyone, my name's Dillon and I'm an 8 year old Lurcher. I came to the centre as my previous owner sadly passed away. My friends describe me as vibrant, playful, extremely loving and loyal! I'm a really sweet, sensitive soul who will make the most amazing companion for someone! Unfortunately I haven't been previously socialised with other dogs, I am working on my social skills and now go for walks with some female dogs of the same breed but it's very important I wear my muzzle out in public at all times and I'd prefer walks in quieter areas. It'd really benefit me if my new owners have the experience to continue with my socialising and positive reward based training in order for me to feel more relaxed on my walks. My ideal home would be somewhere in a rural location where I can enjoy lots of quiet time, and I'd love a nice secure garden where I have room to run and play with my toys as I'll need to be kept on a lead at all times in public. I have lots of love to give someone, I'll bond quickly with my new owners and make a very affectionate companion in the right home.
