Romeo is a 4 year old male Afghan Hound. We are looking for a sighthound-savvy home for a pair of Afgan Hounds, Olaf and Romeo.
Romeo is a wonderful, handsome and unique pair of dogs who need an experienced adopter with a large secure garden and lots of time and patience. A joint adoption will be prioritized but they could also be adopted separately.
Olaf and Romeo are strikingly beautiful, very tall hounds. They have lived in kennels and their owner’s garden all their lives and had minimal care or attention.
They arrived at the shelter we work with in northern Spain in a dreadful state. Their coats were matted and they had never been on a lead or taken for a walk.
Despite their previous life, they both like to be with people and will follow you around and seek contact with you once they trust you.
Olaf is more playful and Romeo is more affectionate and can be a little jealous with cuddles. Romeo’s coat was so matted he could hardly move and he had to be shaved. His coat is now growing back.
The Afgan coat needs regular grooming and care. Both Romeo and Olaf can guard their food, so they eat separately, but generally get on very well.
They can both behave dominantly, barking or chasing unknown dogs and strangers so the adopters must be experienced and preferably know the breed. Adult homes only. The dogs are very big and imposing. Both dogs were quite defensive initially, but they are learning to trust their foster home and are doing very well.
The foster home is gradually getting the dogs more used to being handled. It is slow progress but they are improving all the time and trusting her more.
Both were born on 6th March 2019. If you are interested in giving these handsome boys a home, they are available at Setter Brittany Pointer Rescue. They are currently in North Spain but their bags are packed and they are ready to travel to their special home in the UK. Will that be with you??
