This bright light in our firmament is three-year-old Moonshine, a beautiful black ex racing greyhound. Loving and sensitive, she is social and demonstrative with the people she knows and is comfortable with, but can be lacking in confidence around strangers. She is particularly shy with men, so will prefer a home where a woman can be her main caregiver to begin with. Her new family must be prepared to come to kennels multiple times so she can get to know them before they take her home.
Moonshine loves other dogs, large and small, and has even been helping the other kennel dogs to work on their own social skills! She will do best in a home with another social, well-adjusted dog to give her emotional support and show her the ropes. A quiet, low pressure adult-only home would be best, although she could live with older teens as long as they are not too noisy. New things can worry her, so slow, gentle introductions to the world are a must.
Not having lived in a home before, Moonshine struggles with some things we take for granted – like stairs! She has yet to master them, so a single storey home, or adopters able to carry her up and down any steps, would be helpful. She travels well, and may enjoy trips to quiet walking destinations as her confidence increases. She likes gentle fuss from people she trusts
Moonshine is a charming young dog who, given time and patience, will blossom into a loving companion. Could you let her bring her light into your home? If so, please get in touch.
