Sweet Champ is a four-year-old ex racing greyhound who is looking for a special home where he will have time and space to settle and grow in confidence. When he first arrived with us, this white-and-blue boy was very shut down and anxious, and could show frustration when he didn’t understand his new situation. He’s since settled well into kennel life, and is relaxed and social with everyone he meets. His new family just need be aware that the change in circumstances when he goes home could result in him initially being anxious.
A quiet, adult-only home will suit this sensitive boy best, and patient people who have previous experience of rescue dogs are a must. Ideally he’ll be an only dog, but could possibly live with another relaxed greyhound or lurcher, pending introductions. He’s social with the other kennel hounds, but doesn’t seek them out, and may prefer to avoid contact. As a ex racer, he hasn’t met many other breeds of dog, so will need support with ongoing socialisation.
Despite his racing background, we’d describe Champ as ‘low energy’! His favourite role in kennels is helping with admin – which involves flopping on the rug in the home from home cabin while we do paperwork. Even in our paddock, after a little mooch about, he just wants to sunbathe! He’s a big lad, so will need a decent amount of space to stretch out in. He’d like big rooms, and a large, enclosed garden where he can relax on the grass.
Champ is a typical rescue greyhound, in that he has no experience of domestic life, and will need gentle guidance and positive reinforcement to understand what’s expected of him. Consistent, low-pressure company and zero stress is his ideal. In return he’ll steal your sofa, the best spot in the sun, and your hearts. If you’re the right family for this big, soft lad, please get in touch.
