Breed: Large Male Wolfhound x

Floyd generally is very calm and sociable and walks gently in a harness on a short lead, though he may pull in his great eagerness to meet a new dog (something we are working on with him – and we do mean really pull). He is relaxed around dogs he has already befriended. He easily handles 30 mins walk and can go for much longer, due to his boundless doggy energy. However, Floyd can be a little unpredictable with his relationship with other dogs, from over excitability to when he meets new friends, to sitting on that poodle who has been a bit cheeky. In other words, you do have to watch him on outings. Conversely he is a great dog to take with you to people places – he has stayed in a hotel, been a perfect visitor to a few cafes, and did we say just loves people! He travels well in the car.
He is totally house-trained and will ask to go outside if no doggy door is available.
Floyd has been been known to sneak onto his humans’ bed, but will sleep soundly in a dog bed and follow house rules. He really likes cats, so much that he will initiate play with them – and even groom them! We suggest that any cats in his new home meet him under close supervision so his enthusiasm isn’t misunderstood by the cats.
We think his friendly and playful nature means he will be best suited to a home with at least one human at home for most of the day, as he will be best placed as an only dog, and will need to be inside during the day, as he can become anxious and vocal when left alone in a backyard.
Floyd is very food oriented and, due to his size, we recommend that food (even on benches) not be left around temptingly , since …. well, Floyd really loves his food, your food, unattended food, anybody’s food. And if you have cats Floyd should be fed separately from them.
Floyd’s size and love of adventure mean he needs a home with high, secure fences as he has a love of adventure and the long legs to find it.
