Congratulations, he sounds lovely. So pleased to hear another positive tale of a rescue centre dog. What have you called him? In my experience Lurchers tend to be of a very good nature so fingers crossed the honey moon period wont be ending any time soon! Glad he is getting on with the ds too. If you need anything for him (bed, toys etc) have a look over at the pet section at exchange and mart and you might find him a bargain. My boxers love their kongs, and as he is a young dog, having plenty of toys (preferably indestructible as the kongs claim to be!) may help prevent any naughty behaviours. Make sure he gets lots of walks too to help out with this.
