Please meet Bran, named after Bran Fendigaid (the Blessed) who was the son of the Sea God Lyr, & the maternal grandson of Belenos, the Sun God, according to Celtic mythology, where he appears as a semi-humanised giant.
Bran is a fairly large Irish Lurcher, (though in reality not a giant), aged between 18 months & two years, who was brought into rescue as a stray.
He’s a bombproof, very laid back, affectionate lad – in fact he’s a total cuddle-bunny, & he will sometimes lie on the floor to drink water from his bowl because he’s too lazy to stand up! ;D He is also an accomplished counter-surfer.
Bran has lived happily with five dogs & six cats, one of them blind.
He walks well on lead, although he does tend to get excited if squirrels appear in his line of sight!
Bran is in good health & is fully vaxed, neutered, microchipped, wormed & flea treated.
He is currently residing with Barney, to whom all enquiries should initially be addressed.
Following a successful homecheck we are waiting to learn if Bran will be having visitors this weekend.
Sykes is pretty laid back most of the time, too: I know whenever he's been on walks he's been on the demented side of wildly excited, but he does the laying-down-drinking thing, too... and eating, sometimes!
Does that mean my boy is officially a lemon brindle, then? On his adoption papers it says "dark brindle" but on his vaccination book "light brindle".
Ooh, I've got to pop over and meet him before he goes B. J xx
I'd certainly recommend it Mummy Chook - hounds like him are few & far between. His visitors will be here about 11.00 a.m. - we'll be taking Bran out for a walk, & who knows what the future holds for him after that?
I've promised that I'll have the kettle on.
Edited to add:
I measured him this evening & he stands 27" max at the shoulder, (for comparison Seamus is 33").
