Evie came in to the shelter as an ex-racer. She loves all dogs but is especially fond of her friend Flint who is also a trailhound.
Evie is a very nervous dog, who needs a slow integration in to everyday life. She is be a bit of a project.
She is very affection and loyal to individuals who have spent time slowly getting to know her is very adorable and cuddly to those individuals who have spent the time getting to know him at the speed that he is comfortable.
Evie loves toys, mainly soft ones she can easily pick up.
Evie loves other dogs and gains her confidence from them. Therefore she is looking for a home with a suitable dog or dogs and cannot be rehomed to a household with no dogs. If there is a home out there willing to take on both Flint and Evie they do get on really well. However, it would be more advantageous for them both to be rehomed with a more confident dog.
Evie is quite sensitive and will need to be rehomed to an adult only quiet household.
Trailhounds are quiet active dogs and require a moderate amount of exercise, therefore a home with an active lifestyle would suit well.
As trailhounds come from a racing background they have no concept of house training or walking well on a lead. Evie would suit a home with someone understanding and willing to put in the work to make her be the best trailhound she can be.
A home with previous trailhound experience would be preferred but not essential. She must go to a home with someone with dog experience, and a reasonable expectation of what it would be like have a hound breed as a pet. She will need a family who is willing to continue the work carried out by WARS.
Being a Trailhound jumping is her forte, she will need a garden with minimum 6ft fences.
Trailhounds are very adaptable dogs who make very good family pets. They have fantastic temperaments and tend to be great around children, other dogs and other animals. They need plenty of exercise but in once in the home love nothing more than curling up in front of the fire. They do however, love a smell.. so their noses are likely to be found centimetres off the ground, so recall often needs some work. They are relatively quick learners who are highly motivated by food.
