Danny is a very handsome 9-year-old Lurcher who is with Freshfields Animal Rescue in Liverpool.
He was rehomed by Freshfields originally as a puppy back in 2012, after being hand-reared by a member of kennel staff. Danny’s mum was a Lurcher and his dad was a Border Terrier, but he is Lurcher in size.
Danny finds himself back in rescue due to food guarding, which unfortunately resulted in him biting his owner when she tried to retrieve a food wrapper that he had stolen. Danny did drop the wrapper when asked to do so, but as his owner picked it up it slipped out of her hand, and as she went to grab it again Danny bit her. Danny has never guarded any other items, and is fine when eating, but the issue arises when something is dropped, as he then sees it as a competition to grab it before you do.
Danny can be quite a nervous and insecure boy, which can happen in dogs that weren’t around their birth mum for those vital first weeks. He does not trust strangers and needs slow, careful introductions to new people. However, once Danny has established a friendship with you, he is the most affectionate, loyal and devoted boy.
Danny needs a quiet, adult-only household, with a sensible and experienced owner who will allow him to have his own space. He would like to be the only pet in the home and would like a large, secure garden that he can race around in. Danny is clean and non-destructive and can be left alone for a few hours
His new owner will ideally live locally to Freshfields and be able to make several trips to the rescue in order to form a bond with Danny before adoption. This will progress into home visits to give Danny a slow introduction to his new home.
