Hi everyone im hattie. i am a friendly rough coated lurcher, i may look older but im still young and playful. when i first arrived at Sun Valley i was very timid and overwhelmed. after a few days though i really settled in and came out of my shell. i now love nothing more than running around with my friends and going for nice walks.
I am a very happy girl and love spending time out of my kennel with the staff and volunteers. Everyone says I'm a real character, I smile when people come and say hello as I'm so happy to see them. Volunteers also say I am doing really well with my recall training in the paddock and nearly always some straight back. I do wear a muzzle when I'm running offlead with my friends, not because i'm mean but I'm still learning how others like to play and sometimes getting super excited and nip other dogs back legs to get them to run faster.
Even though i am much braver than i was when i arrived i can still be a little nervous around new people, especially men . I come around quickly when people feed me treats and through toys for me and then i'm super happy to be around them.
i would like to live with an active family who would play with me and take me for nice walks. I could live with or without another dog
