DOG OF THE WEEK - DERRY

Derry is a two year old greyhound. This wonderful girl is beautiful inside and out. She is so very loving, happy, cheeky and kind.

Derry is an affectionate soul and loves nothing better than to snuggle up on the sofa with you. Derry loves her walks and is currently walked for a minimum of two and a half hours every day split over three walks. She will also need to have regular opportunities for off lead exercise in a secure area. Being a young dog, Derry needs an active home and would be better homed as an only dog , she is not cat friendly

Derry is clean in the house and has learnt that she is not allowed to counter surf or beg for food from the table! Any potential adopter must understand that Derry is a young dog and some teenage behaviour should be expected.

Initially, Derry slept in her own bed in the foster family’s bedroom but, having discovered the wonders of sofa snoozing, she has been choosing to sleep on the sofa all night downstairs. Derry sleeps through without a peep all night, stirring only when her foster family appear at 7.30am the following morning.

Derry travels well and loves a road trip. She’s a confident and nosey girl who enjoys taking in all the sights and sounds. Derry has adapted to home life so quickly, she walks well on the lead, and has been non-reactive when passing all manner of dogs, large and small.

Whoever adopts Derry is in for a real treat as this girl just loves life! But more than that, she will love you! It is impossible not to love Derry as she gives so much in return. Derry is like an open book and what you see is what you get, which is a very happy go lucky and loving girl.

P.S.

Derry has also requested that her forever home has a large sized toy basket filled with a variety of different toys from which she is able to select whatever takes her fancy at the time. Thank you.

Derry is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and flead and wormed.
