Handsome black ex racing greyhound Ashley is a really sweet boy with a gentle temperament who is currently lacking in a bit of confidence, so needs help to adjust to life away from racing.
He has not finished racing so he has probably never been in a home environment before. Due to his nervous nature it may take some time for him to get the hang of things, but a consistent routine from day one will help him know what is expected of him. His confidence is also greatly improved when there is another dog around, so Ashley would like at least one calm, confident, resident dog to help show him the ropes in the big wide world.
Whilst Ashley is happy to interact with people, any handling needs to be done on his terms as he can become overwhelmed with too much attention. He would also appreciate his bed in a ‘safe place’ where he can retreat to if things get too much for him.
Ashley walks beautifully on the lead, but would benefit from going for walks in quiet places and / or at quiet times of the day. He loves toys, especially soft toys and tennis balls, as they are particularly great for doing zoomies with – and wonderful zoomies they are too!
Ashley has come a long way since being in our care with help from a behaviourist, and will need help to continue to build his confidence in a home. Therefore he is looking for a supportive and understanding family who will be prepared to give him the time he needs.
He may never feel comfortable in certain situations – so if you like nothing better than taking your dog to socialise with friends in a local cafe, Ashley is NOT the dog for you. However, if you live a quiet life in the country, and want a sweet and loyal friend who will provide you with lots of love and companionship, gorgeous Ashley is waiting to hear from you!
