At 18 months Oberon is still very much a playful Saluki so will need a home that is all ready for a bambi sized puppy-dog! He has always been a much loved boy, but sadly his owner`s circumstances changed very suddenly and it just was not practical for them to keep him.
Oberon is full of beans, loves to play, to run, to chase – anything from another dog to a bouncing ball or a leaf! He can find fun in almost any given situation and is very adept at making his own amusement! He has a wonderful sense of humour and loves to share that with you, making you laugh out loud several times a day! He is very people orientated and loves spending time with people. He is ridiculously playful with other dogs and loves the company of other carefully chosen dogs (not so much entire males), playing chase or sharing a walk…or even a sofa! He loves to go for long, relaxed country walks….loves a snuggle on the sofa with you in front of the fire afterwards. He has been to puppy training classes, but with his age and breed will need ongoing firm but patient positive reward training.
Oberon has not had much experience of spending time alone, so will need a home where there is someone home based all the time, at least initially, so that he can slowly be taught that it is ok to be home alone for short periods. He is not suitable for homing with young children and cannot be homed with small animals, including cats. He would benefit from a stable home and previous Saluki, or similar, experience is a must. He would love to live with another dog, preferably a dog that is happy to play with him, but also able to give him some stability and role-modelling – Obe is a real copy-cat with other dogs and adores their company.
He will need somebody that has experience with very high prey drive and also dealing with dogs with extra needs. Due to spending most of his life so far in kennels it means that he will need a slow transition into a home and someone with patience to do this at his speed.
