FILOU (FEELOO)

PORCELAIN SCENT HOUND

Filou (pronounced Feeloo) is a 10 and a half year old Porcelain Scent Hound (French) Filou lived alone with an elderly gentleman & they had a very close bond and he was very much loved When Filou came into rescue he was a little overweight (he loves his food) he weighed 47 kg and his ideal weight should be around 32 kg this is a work in progress and he is doing very well loosing weight steadily He also had a large fatty lump on his shoulder which our vets have successfully removed Filou is male and neutered vaccinated and microchipped He is a lovely boy who absolutely loves people & strokes & fuss He is tolerant of other dogs out & about but doesn't like them in his face so would probably be happier as an only dog His hearing is fine but being a Scent hound when his nose goes on the floor he becomes selectively deaf & takes little notice he is however very responsive to the sound of treats which used sparingly (he does like bits of carrot which helps) have the desired effect He walks quite nicely on a lead and would probably be best kept on lead unless in a secure area Hes a bit of a steady lad just likes to potter & trot & explofe with his nose down He doesn't seem to take much notice of toys Filou is a beautiful sweet lad who just needs his own forever home and a fireside to snooze by
