LAIKA is a Bavarian Mountain Hound who will be 4 yrs old this August & is looking for a new home due to a change in circumstances. He is a very friendly, loving boy who seems to get on with other dogs & tolerates cats. He will settle in a home with children as long as they are used to dogs & will enjoy interacting with them. Laika will need a home that has had experience of hounds & their ways & he will need lots of exercise & mental stimulation. He is a scent hound, so don’t expect any sort of recall if he is out & picks up an interesting trail smell. The research we have done on this breed shows that they have a calm nature & are affectionate & very faithful. They love people but will need someone around a lot as they don’t like being left alone for very long. If you are looking for a loving, friendly companion that is different from the normal hounds that people see – then Laika is the one for you.
