Kipper is a hairy Lurcher who is just eleven months old. He had been clipped before our photos were taken so make no mistake he is definitely a Hairy Lurcher!

Kipper responds to basic commands and is used to being around children. He has been used to being around other breeds of dogs and is good with them. Kipper is still very young and he loves to have a good game with any dog that is up for having some fun! He has learned to have some respect for older dogs that don’t want to play and needs to continue with the training he already appears to have had. 

Kipper is very nervous of strangers. When he first meets someone new he needs to be given time to work out if he can trust you, he needs to be allowed time to come to you when he is ready to do so. Although Kipper enjoys a fuss and a cuddle he is a nervous dog and is clearly hand shy, you will need to be patient and consistent to gain his trust. 

Kipper we think is going to be a big, shaggy boy. Although he is a little bit uncertain at the moment and is relatively calm for an eleven-month-old Lurcher, we can confidently predict what he will be like once he has settled in his forever home and feels safe and secure ...Kipper will become your worst nightmare!

He’s guaranteed to make you laugh, he will also make you cry, but most of all he will make you LOVE unconditionally and he will definitely become a life long much-loved member of your family.

Kipper is young enough to slot into any lifestyle, due to his size we don’t think he will be suited to families with children under eight years old, he will become exuberant in his play sessions. Kipper definitely needs to continue with his training, you will get back from the work you are prepared to put in, this has already been started with Kipper as he does respond to basic commands like sit. 

Kipper is likely to always retain some of his fear of strangers and always be a bit wary of new faces and new situations, he will need a patient owner to help him adjust to life as a family pet. He will need gentle encouragement to gain confidence to explore the world. 

Kipper will however probably regress a little when he feels secure inside his new home and will recapture some of his puppyhood he has missed out on and want to have a little fun. If you are the sort of person who can shrug off, minutes before your Mother in Law visits coping with a Lurcher style circuit of your muddy garden - through your living room carpets - over the settee and upstairs over your freshly laundered beds - & repeat ... all with a smile still on your face then Kipper is definitely the dog for you.

Please do your research about Lurchers, know what to expect and we can guarantee you will never be disappointed with this totally gorgeous boy.
