Making a difference... One dog at a time


Sox is a sweet little 12-18 month old whippet lurcher cross boy who is full of fun and Tigger type bounce but he is worried about other dogs when on a lead and can be reactive. He is also quite anxious in kennels which isn’t helping his state and so we need to find him a new, suitable home, as soon as possible.

He has done really well when off lead with other dogs, but being confined makes him worried so a new owner will need to be prepared to work through that with the support of our behaviourist or we can find a local trainer to work with you at our expense to help get him on the right road.

Sox has had a wander through the cattery, and didn’t show any real interest in chasing, in fact when the cats hissed, he backed off and wanted to keep a safe distance, so with the right introduction and sensible management could perhaps be cat trainable. He is a little anxious in kennels and so will need an experienced home where you can give him time, space and opportunity for his adrenaline to drop and him get acclimatised.


We feel Sox would do best in a quieter home where there is not a lot going on so would suggest no young children, probably teens plus, ideally an adult only home with opportunity for quiet and calm. He is a sweet natured boy but is very worried by his circumstances and is tense when out on a lead, especially around traffic.

He is a playful little chap, will take treats nicely, probably NOT one to be trusted with cats or other small furries, and definitely in need of a home where he will be the focus of someone’s attention to help build his confidence and overcome his anxiety with the world.

He’s around 12-18 months old, and so an ideal age for someone to help him unpick his past and create his future – could that be you? He’s whippet sized, long gangly legs and the sweetest eyes – please can you help Sox find his home? Thank you.
