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, he was much loved and they had a very close bond.  When Filou came into rescue he was a little overweight (he loves his food) he weighed 47 kg, his ideal weight should be around 32 kg so this is a work in progress but he is doing very well and loosing weight steadily.  He is a lovely boy who absolutely loves people and being given a stroke or a 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 & explore 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.
