Important: Please read our latest COVID guidelines before you apply to adopt this lovely hound.
Handsome Eddie is a 4 year old ex racing greyhound with plenty of bounce! This sweet boy loves doing zoomies in the paddock and enjoys food based reward training. He can be bouncy and silly, especially if it’s walkies time!
Eddie can still have some moments where his confidence escapes him. He is a little anxious of new environments, so will need to be introduced to new places slowly. However, he gains confidence from walking in the company of another greyhound, so could live with one subject to successful introductions. This isn’t essential as long as he has ample human company, but it would be great for him to have a greyhound walking buddy should he go home alone.
In order to help Eddie build up his confidence, he would need someone at home most of the time initially, with any time he is left being built up slowly at a pace his is comfortable with. He finds all novel things either exciting or scary he will need an understanding adopter who can manage his environment carefully whilst he gets used to living in a home. His new family will also need to think about housetraining and not leaving food lying around, as Eddie thinks about his tummy a lot!
He would also appreciate someone who has a good knowledge of dog body language and is able to ensure he is handled appropriately, being respectful of his feelings. This will allow him to continue his training to make him more confident and comfortable.
Eddie definitely isn’t cat friendly and hence needs a home where no cats will unsuspectedly wander into the garden! He is also looking for a home where there are no neighbouring dogs.
Steady Eddie really is a lovely chap, in fact, the team looking after him describe him as AWESOME! If you have a space in your heart and your home for Awesome Eddie, please do get in touch!
