Bree

  • Greyhound
  • Male
  • Can live with children, 10 plus
  • Somerset

Brindle Bree is you new best friend! He is very sociable with everyone, and loves gentle fuss and affection – but what he really wants is a family to call his own! He could live with older children and other large dogs (although he might want all the attention for himself!). Confident and keen to interact, Bree is polite and gentle with people, although still a little unsure about being hugged.

An ex-racing greyhound, there is still a lot Bree needs to learn about the world. He isn’t sure yet about what to do with toys, or even treats! He can also be over-enthusiastic when greeting smaller dogs, probably due to the novelty of a meeting different breed when he’s only ever known greyhounds. He can become excited if they move quickly, and while he is improving, he will need more practice, and should be walked in quiet areas, on-lead and with a muzzle while he learns they are not for chasing. Bree walks well on the lead, but can be very strong when pulling towards another dog, so will need an owner with a firm grip.

This handsome four-year-old is just looking for a little love, and patient people who will show him how to get on in the world. Could that be you?
