What an absolute poppet this young man is. He doesn't stop wagging his tail and meets and greets all and sundry.He has such a happy disposition. He was an absolute poppet on the way home in the car and settled easily., and never attempted to get over the back seat. Thanks for accompanying me Jules.
He is approximately 6 years old. Has been to the poodle parlour and is looking beautiful thanks to wk rescue.
He will be standing with Uncle Barney, and popping into see Anil tonight along with Seamus.
There is no history with Jobi. Just picked up by the dog warden and found wandering near Chelmsford.
He is absolutely lovely. ;D He's only a littlun. About 25 at the shoulder.
Jobi lovely little feller, hope he find a happy a ending as the lovely Belle as done. I am glad I have got her but I think she must have been a family pet and are they missing her and is she missing them. As Barney said if your dogs micro chipped you stand a much better chance of matching up dog and owner again. Its such a small cost now compared to losing a dog especially lurcher's who have rubbish recall and chase after anything. I do love what I call the scruffy lurcher's. Good luck little Jobi.
The vet agreed with Jenny & myself that Jobi is around six years old.
He has had his first vax, & is microchipped. He will be wormed & deflead tomorrow, & is due to be neutered next week.
Jobi travels well in the car, as Jenny stated. He also walks well on lead, with no pulling – I took him out initially with Winnie & Seamus, then with my two Greys, & he was a pleasure to walk with.
Jobi is proving himself to be very affectionate with people-persons, & friendly towards other hounds, with no sign of any aggressive tendency. His tail wags more or less constantly, mainly in windmill fashion.
He has not shown any interest in being on the furniture, or going upstairs, although in this particular home-kennel he’s welcome to go wherever he pleases.
We don’t yet have any idea if he has recall, or if he’s cat/child friendly, although I’d be extremely surprised if he wasn’t o.k. with children.
The pics of him with Seamus prove that the camera does indeed lie – he’s smaller than he looks in the photos, & very scrawny. He needs building up, & this will of course be addressed immediately.
Jobi has various lumps & bumps, which may or may not be associated with him having been worked.
Jobi is very obedient, & eager to please.
In short, (& on admittedly short acquaintance), this is a very special lad, who will make someone, (& their hounds), a wonderful companion.
