About Me

Storm is a stunning 3 year old saluki x girl who landed into our care with Skye. Unlike Skye though Storm has hardened to whatever she has been through in life and in true saluki form she is absolutely not so forgiving.


When Storm landed with us she would scream and hurl herself at the wall to get away from you, a lead would result in her screaming and flinging herself into the air and trying to land full pelt side on and men could not even get within 20ft of her without her screaming and trying to run full pelt in panic.

We have worked as hard as you possibly could with this girl here at Greyhound Gap and now men are not something to be feared and walks are absolutely enjoyed. She no longer shys away from touch if anything she is way to full on over compensating and a little in your face but that hint of a feral taint still remains.

Storm will need a experienced and patient lurcher home with all the time in the world to gently calm and tame her. She can not be an only dog but she can be quite ruthless at times in her bullying of Skye who just accepts it and allows it so we feel a calm male companion would be the right mix for her. Storm lives to run and indulge in lurcher games now and poor Skye who is the gentlest soul alive is horrified by it. Separating them has been the hardest decision to make as weirdly in the main it does work but we feel that no matter how right Storm feels it is its not right for Skye anymore.

We do feel without the right guidance Storm could develop separation anxiety so a home willing to work with us with her to ensure that doesn't happen and not be on a time constraint for settling or panic if we have to come forward then step back would be 100 per cent necessary. She is not good with small furries or cats and there must be no young children resident in the home.

We know its a tall order but she absolutely has shown what an amazing little dog she is capable of being with how far she has come with us and how much she has been willing to learn.

Storm is vaccinated, kc vaccinated, de flead, de wormed, microchipped and is spayed. She will be rehomed with one months free Petplan insurance.

Storm is currently in Stoke on Trent but can be rehomed nationally subject to a successful homevisit being carried out and any resident dogs and immediate members of the family being willing to travel to meet with her
