Whoever is lucky enough to adopt Hermes can count themselves truly blessed.
Hermes is a stunning orange and white Pointer who has spent most of his six and a half years in Greece on a chain. He was brought to the UK less than a month ago since when he has been with a wonderful foster carer who is totally in love with him and would keep him if she could.
His carer says of him “every day he is more and more settled. He has been chained up for his entire life and all he wants is love”. He is great with people, children and dogs and seems to soak up affection and give it back in spadefuls as if to make up for all the years he has been deprived of any kindness.
He is obviously highly intelligent; house trained and sleeps soundly all night in his bed in the kitchen. He’s good in the car and is reported as being a really fast learner, understanding the word ‘no’ and already responding well to recall in the garden. Training must be continued with Hermes as everything is new to him, but it will be very rewarding to work together with this gorgeous boy.
The foster carer’s own dog and Hermes have bonded and if he isn’t snuggled up with a human, he is cosied up with the house dog so it is felt that he would really benefit from having a doggy companion to live with and learn from. Hermes isn’t suitable to live with cats.
Hermes is neutered and comes with life-time support of Pointers In Need and a pet passport.
