Ever-ready Eddy is a gorgeous, cuddly bundle of fun. A friendly, sociable boy who enjoys the company of people and dogs. He’s a five-year-old ex-racing greyhound – and while he raced under the name Black Adder, he would like us to point out that he also has some very handsome white patches!
We have taken him ‘down the town’, where he was initially a bit nervous, but soon got into his stride. He enjoyed watching the ducks, but didn’t chase them – and he even ignored the squirrels in the park! He ventured into a couple of shops, and was social with all of the dogs we met. When he goes home he will need ongoing socialisation with small dogs.
Eddy has also recently had a visit to our office in Oxford and took part in a radio interview for BBC Radio Oxford. He was such a good boy for the whole day and everyone who met him completely fell in love with him. The journalist hadn’t encountered many greyhounds before and was surprised by his gentle, loving and very calm nature. He did a wonderful job of flying the flag for just what great pets greyhounds make!
This lovely lad is a sensitive soul who responds gratefully to a loving hand. He walks well on the lead and enjoys gentle fuss and affection – he’ll nudge you for more if you stop stroking him! He wants to play with toys, but is still working out what to do with them, and always takes treats gently.
Steady Eddy’s ready for his forever home – are you ready to take him in?
