More about GATSBY

Meet our Gatsby! He arrived as a stray, meaning we have no information on his history.

During his stay here Gatsby has been friendly and loving with everyone he meets. He enjoys leaning his body into you and adores nothing better than human affection. Although he's a big lad and can be bouncy at times, Gatsby is really responsive to his handlers and is a real gentle giant at heart and would choose melting into his handlers for a cuddle over most other things.

Gatsby has been a little stressed in kennels during his stay, but does settle quite nicely in our quieter rooms away from kennels. However, as we are unable to know what (if any) experience he's had around domestic home environments, he is looking for owners who can work on building up his time alone gradually once he has settled into his new home.

Gatsby has proven to be a little under confident and somewhat insecure around dogs so will therefore be best suited to being the only dog in the home, in addition to living away from the inner city to provide him with enough space and quiet for training without distraction regarding working on his confidence building around dogs.

Gatsby is ideally looking for experienced owners who have experience with dogs that need some confidence building around other dogs and would benefit from having first hand experience around sighthound/bull breeds or have researched into bull lurchers, so as to be able to best meet his needs and prepare for management of typical breed traits.

Gatsby has shown intense chase around wildlife and will need to be kept on lead and muzzled at all times when out in public.
