Jake is a handsome 4 year old ex racing greyhound who has recently finished his racing career, and is now looking for a home where he can live life to the fullest!
He is an enthusiastic and social boy who enjoys being around both people and dogs. Whilst he would love to share his home with a four-legged friend, he could also live as an only dog, as long as he has lots of human company – he just needs someone to show him the ropes, and lots of love in his new home.
Jake loves his toys…and plays with them to the max – so robust toys will be needed! He is quite happy to swap them for a tasty treat though, so you can save them from total destruction!
Jake has suffered a broken hock in his racing career which was repaired at the time, and hence he shows no obvious ill effects from this now. However, care will need to be taken when handling, just in case of any weakness or discomfort.
If you want and enthusiastic, happy and sociable lad to add to your pack…. Jake’s your boy!
As per our current homing situation, please only apply to adopt Jake if the following criteria applies to you:
- You are an experienced sighthound owner or are willing to follow a training plan designed by our behaviourists, to set you and your dog up for success.
- You don’t have any resident cats or small animals (*during this time we are unable to meaningfully assess for cat tolerance*)
- You live within England and Wales and willing to travel to our kennels in Somerset, Gloucestershire and Buckinghamshire.
- You are willing to make several visits to meet a hound before taking them home. Some of our hounds need time to get to know you first.
