Dog of the Week
TANGO and his sister, Fleur, had both been with us for years until little Fleur recently found a lovely home.
Now that Fleur has gone, Tango is on his own and is struggling a bit.
He isn’t good with other dogs and we can’t put another bitch in with him for company. Tango is also very shy and this shows itself in his barking and nipping at strangers who get too near to his kennel.
It means that nobody ever stops close enough to him to see beyond the fear and noise.
It takes a very short time for Tango to come around - any new staff in the kennel are welcomed with a wagging tail and happy smiley face after just a couple of days of knowing him and he is quite happy going for walks with the volunteers that he knows.
Any prospective owner would be introduced properly and slowly until Tango was relaxed and comfortable in their presence.
He would have to be an only dog and would enjoy a quiet, rural home with an experienced Lurcher person.
He would be great with a single person that he could bond with and a child-free environment is a must - he doesn’t like small children running around.
Whilst Fleur has always been the easier of the two, she could have her moments! She is now settling very well into her new home and it proves that things turn out fine if the introductions are done carefully and time is taken over the transition from kennel dog to household companion.
It is sad to see Tango without his lifelong friend (he is now around 6/7 years old). There must be someone out there for this poor lad who will make a devoted pet for the right person?
