Home I need:

This is Amber, a 9 year old Lurcher mix who is desperately seeking her forever home. Amber is being cared for here at Ferne Animal Sanctuary in Somerset, where she has been in kennels since November 2021. We will rehome Amber to anywhere in the UK if it is the right home set up for her. Distance is no problem.

Originally from a Stray pound in Wales she arrived in quite a poor state.

So here’s the thing, Amber is one of hundreds of Lurchers looking for their new loving forever home all over the UK, so why pick her? Well, she is the most loving of dogs, she is so friendly to everyone she meets on walks, wriggling her whole body as she greets people. She is playful, she is treat motivated, she walks nicely on a lead when not distracted. She could live with children 10 years or older after successful meetings here at Ferne. She travels well in a car /  van. She could probably be left alone for short periods as long as she had a comfy bed to curl up in.

The key to Amber’s successful rehoming is the right sort of home environment – She needs a home that is quiet, that is rural and away from lots of dog walkers or passing dogs. She needs an active owner who can take her on nice walks up on the moors, or other such open spaces so she will feel safe. She will always need to be on lead in public places and wear her muzzle on all walks, due to her high prey drive. Amber would love free running time in an enclosed secure dog park maybe once a week to allow her to release some of her energy. She does have sore hips now so exercise will need to be managed for her comfort. She cannot live with Cats or small furries.

RECENT REVIEW – Amber needs a home where she is the ONLY DOG. This will ensure the likelihood of a successful rehome. She could have doggie friends after careful and slow introductions.

Owners who understand this breed and all its traits would be really great, but also if you have large dog experience and have lived with and managed a reactive dog in the past we would love to hear from you. Ambers time in kennels exceeds any of our other dogs, she really is a treasure and deserves a chance….If you meet the above criteria please get in touch by applying online…. Thank you.
