- In Foster In Folkestone
- 1 Year Old
- Cat Workable
Loki is a year old bull lurcher, whippet/saluki x greyhound/deerhound. He is housetrained and very friendly around people. He can be timid around larger dogs. He is an intelligent lad who walks well on the lead and will respond to training especially if treats are involved! Loki is a well behaved and calm dog especially considering his age and his breed. He really is a super sweet dog – he fitted into his foster home really well and he adores the other dogs – but he can also be an only dog.
Loki is with us due to the fact he has Epilepsy and the vet at the PDSA knows what a lovely dog he is so asked if we could take him as he was due to be put to sleep. It is quite shocking that such an amazing dog could lose his life because of a condition – which is controlled through medication.
he is cat workable so long as you are prepared to follow the training advice.
This can be managed with the correct medication. KGR will cover the cost of any future epilepsy episodes and medications required.
Can you please think very carefully, before adopting? Dogs – even quiet greyhounds – are a huge responsibility and a lifestyle change. If you have any health issues – please think very carefully and ensure you can look after the dog before applying.
Please also note you do need to be in a position to adopt before applying. Once your home check is done, you need to collect your dog within 3 to 4 days.
It takes months before a dog will settle into your home and lifestyle – and you, as the human, must ensure it works. We have become a very throw away society where it is easier to return a dog than to train a dog. Most rescues are experiencing some people who just give up all too easily – as though they are just returning something to Amazon. When people return a dog – they feel very guilty, so they create a lot of issues and extra work for our rescue.
We are, of course, not talking about the genuine cases – where you may have an illness, lost your job or have to move to somewhere you cannot take the dog – we are talking about just giving up in the 1st 6 months.
You may just think you are just returning the dog, and all is OK – but the disruption caused to that dog can be immense and can be very damaging for him. The dog will have to go back into kennels (after being in a home) and a “returned” dog is a lot harder to rehome than other dogs.
Please also remember – we are all volunteers at KGR and we can only process so many applications in the time we have – if you give up and return your dog – someone else has missed out on having a dog because we spent our time on you.
We appreciate this sounds harsh – but for the sake of the dogs please think carefully. We can provide full backup to help settle your dog into your life – but you have to be up for the challenge and be 100% onboard to help your dog settle into your home and life. You cannot expect the dog to just move into your home and for you to put no effort into making the relationship work.
Please remember the 3-3-3- rule
Please make sure you are in a position to adopt a dog, before completing the online adoption form. We are unable to hold onto dogs for more than a few days, once you have passed your homecheck.
We do rehome throughout the UK, so long as you are prepared to travel to meet the dog within a few days of applying for him and then again to adopt him, once you have passed your homecheck.
