Lassie has come in to WARS after being retired from racing. She is an energetic hound who is going to need alot of work to adjust in to a home environment. She is so very loveing and wants affection 24/7 but has no manners or house training.
She has bundles of personality with a racing brain.
Lassie needs to be in an adult only home as she is so energetic and has no awareness of her body as it bounces around. With this she will unintentionally injure a child. Lassie could live with another dog who could match her energy levels or cope with her lively personality.
She can be quite strong on the lead so she will need someone with the strength to hold on to a 20-25kg dog. She would love lots of exercise then a peaceful nap by the fire.
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.
