Hardy Needs a Home

About Hardy

Introducing Hardy!

Hardy is a beautiful 7 year old male Staffie cross Whippet.

He is such a sweetheart and is a very good boy, who will be perfect in a nice calm house where he can lounge on the sofa!

He absolutely loves his long walks and is just a beauty!

He knows basic commands like sit but would benefit from a little further training. He would like a home that has someone there most of the time and would be able to take him for a few good walks a day. He does pull a little on the lead but is manageable.

He is happy to meet strangers when out and about. He does get excited when people visit his home but soon calms down once he’s said hello. He can be quite jumpy around children so would suit a family with children ten years old and above.

Hardy wouldn’t be able to go to a home with cats as he wants to chase them. He hasn’t shown any aggression towards other dogs while out on his walks. He might be okay living with a female dog but would need careful introduction.

Hardy isn’t food aggressive but will eat any food dropped on the floor if given half a chance. He doesn’t like loud noises like fireworks but is fine with general household noise.

Hardy is a lovely lad and would make a great addition to the right home.

If you are interested in adopting Hardy please contact us today.

Home checks, Vet checks and Adoption fees apply.
