Geezer

Age: 7 years 2 months | Dog | Lurcher

Rescue: Battersea Dogs and Cats Home

Geezer came to Battersea with another dog due to a change in their owners circumstances and through no fault of their own. He has a history of squabbling over food with his sister so they were therefore split during their stay at Battersea. Since coming in Geezer has shown to be a very gentle and worried soul. He has found kennel life quite depressing and is usually found curled up in his bed feeling down. He has been consistently quite worried around people during his stay, once he has warmed up he is can be affectionate, Geezer has been worried when meeting other dogs and mostly wants to do his own thing and stick with his known people rather than interact with them., he will avoid them where possible. He will need to be the only dog in the home at this time. He need to live a rural area as he is too nervous for busy areas as he will jump as sudden noises and ideally someone with a car as he is best to be driven to a park area. Geezer is a gentle boy with a sensitive side to him, so needs understanding owners as he is unlikely to change. If you think that Geezer might just be the companion you are searching for, then please contact the Rehoming team in London ASAP, on rehoming@battersea.org.uk, providing an overview of your previous experience with dogs, current set up and how you can meet his needs. If you have not registered to rehome with us yet, please do so on the Battersea website here: https://www.battersea.og.uk/rehoming before getting in touch.
