Clarence ~ Fabulous Feisty Boy – 1-2yo Fawn Lurcher
Say hello to the fabulous Clarence! Clarence is a 1-2 year old lurcher, likely greyhound x whippet, who was found straying in a bad condition in Ireland. The poor boy was very thin and had large abscessed wounds on his head with a skin infection to boot.
Several weeks on and with some gentle TLC, Clarence is now fighting fit once again. His facial wounds have healed and antibiotics have cleared up his skin infection nicely. He has also gained at least 20-25% of his body weight. He is smaller and more slender than the average sized greyhound, and his gorgeous light fawn coat now sparkles in the sun.
Now the he is feeling better, Clarence’s character is showing itself, and what a character this little hound has! He is a feisty, fun-loving dog that loves to love life. His tail is always wagging and he absolutely adores any and all interaction with both people and canines. He is a cheeky boy and will likely test his boundaries when going to his new home, but you can’t help but smile at his antics and fun-seeking personality.
Clarence would be perfect for an active family who enjoy being out doing things and meeting people. He is good with other dogs of all sizes and could live with one or several houndy companions, though perhaps not with an overly timid friend as he likes to play rough, lurcher style! He is not cat friendly. With a little bit of patience and a gentle but firm command, this boy has the potential to be a fantastic family companion.
Clarence is currently being kept in kennels and has not yet been in a home, but usually greyhounds and lurchers adjust to this change very quickly. It generally takes about 10-14 days for them to start to settle in a home, and really all they need is time and patience.
Clarence is currently being kennelled with the SPCA in Co. Wexford, Ireland. Kery Greyhound Connection is helping to find this boy his forever home. He can be transported via Kerry Greyhounds to the UK if a suitable home offer comes up. This will be organised and paid for by Kerry Greyhounds/Wexford SPCA, and we ask only for a donation to help cover costs. Please note that adopters will need to travel to our nearest collection point to pick him up. He is neutered, vaccinated, de-flea'd and wormed and a homecheck will be required as part of the adoption procedure.
If you are interested in adopting Clarence, please email me for our adoption application form and information pack. Thanks!
