Bob Saltmarsh definitely needs a home with someone around most of the time as he does have separation anxiety and does not like being left alone.. He particularly likes males. His anxiety will improve as he settles and has adequate preparation but he will always need his person around as much as possible. He would suit a younger retired person or someone who works from home, and an adult household. He is a rural boy and would be fine with another dog that wasn't in his face. He has lived with a cat in the past.

He is timid with new people and new situations and lacks confidence. He would prefer a quiet life with someone who loves him and understands that he will be reserved with visitors and new situations. Bob needs a person who understands that, will give him space initially, and then will be his protector in the future.

He is great on lead and very obedient although like most sighthounds he does have a high prey drive, and we would not recommend him with stock or inappropriate off leash activity. He will need secure fencing especially when you are not there.

He is a clingy boy so you need to want the type of dog that will want to be in whatever room you are. If you are interested in Bob and think you can give him a good home, or believe you would be a suitable foster carer do contact us as we have to move Bob.
