About Me

April is a beautiful and gentle Saluki x whippet aged at approximately 3 years old. She’s friendly with people and loves fuss and attention, but can be a little nervous of men to start with. April loves playing with dogs and she has been wonderfully friendly and social when out with the hounds. She has met a variety of other breeds, ages and sizes and has always shown social behaviours. She could live with another dog or as a single dog. She loves canine company and is generally calm around other dogs, seeking play occasionally and under observation only when the other dog offers play.

April is inquisitive and interested in new surroundings but hasn’t yet experienced much roadside walking. Therefore, this should be taken slowly in a new home.

April enjoys her food, but will often save her dinner for later, often preferring to eat overnight. She enjoys tasty chews and treats and takes them gently from the hand and eats them sensibly.

April really enjoys seeing her familiar people and will be excited when they first come in, she doesn’t usually jump up but rubs her head against your legs and often rests her head into you to encourage you to keep fussing. She will greet unfamiliar people quietly, sniffing hands and checking the person over. This greeting is slower with men and she will often keep her distance for some time.

April is interested in small furries and is unlikely to be cat trainable. But is manageable on the lead when they are present. She hasn’t lunged or pulled forward dramatically and generally walks well on the lead usually walking beside you.

April is just starting out with her training but is showing promise on her recall and basic training and proving herself to be very trainable. RESERVED
