Jago (Chilterns Dog Rescue Society, Herts.)

Jago is a very handsome 9-year-old Lurcher who is at Chilterns Dog Rescue Society in Tring, Hertfordshire.

Jago was a stray, so no previous history is available for him. On arrival, he was painfully thin and withdrawn. Happily, he now weighs around 30kg which is close to his optimum weight. Over the past weeks, Jago has settled in beautifully and is a well-mannered dog who walks well on the lead.

He is starting to play with some of the other medium-sized and larger dogs at the Rescue Centre. He is happy to meet new people, greeting them politely and gently, but seeming to expect little in return. Jago now enjoys going for walks with staff and volunteers, taking more of an interest in the world around him. He travels well and could probably be left for periods of time without becoming distressed, provided he has a comfy bed to lie on.

Jago has had medical checks and is now inoculated, microchipped and neutered. He has had a dental where an infected tooth was removed to help resolve an abscess on his gum. He has recently had a full veterinary medical examination, including mobility, heart and blood tests and has passed with flying colours.

Jago has fairly specific rehoming requirements because of the lack of background information. He would be happy to be the only dog in the home or potentially join someone with an established medium to large dog to show him the ropes. With some Greyhound in his very mixed ancestry, it is not surprising Jago has a strong chase instinct, so would not be suited to a home where he could gain access to cats, chickens or other livestock. As his daily exercise will need to be on lead, he needs access to a secure space where he can run, play and let off steam off lead.

Do you have relevant experience and feel you could offer a suitable home to lovely Jago?
