Dolly Snowflake – More photos due

  • Greyhound
  • Female
  • Can live with children, 10 plus
  • Needs an active home
  • Not cat trainable

Well, hello Dolly! This little lass has the most wonderful snowflakes in her coat and is a very pretty girl. She is four years old, and has had an illustrious career, recently retiring from racing after her 100th win! Although she has finished racing, she is still a very active girl who absolutely loves zoomies and playing with her football. She would prefer a home with plenty of space in the garden or with access to a secure field to whizz around in. It has to be said that toys are Dolly’s passion, and she will play all day long! She will be a really fun loving girl to have around.

Dolly enjoys treats, cuddles and walks as well as her football – we have gone through three already at kennels! She is on the petite side, but is a real pocket rocket and would love a sofa to call her own (and a nice selection of toys). She is a confident and outgoing girly who needs an active home, with people either at home or working part-time, as we feel that if left for long periods she may become bored. She could live with children 10 or older, depending on introductions.

Dolly walks well on the lead, and is learning how to meet other dogs politely. She is a very friendly girl and fell very much in love with a staffie-x stooge dog she was introduced to! Obviously, due to her successful racing career, she is going to need time to adjust to living life in the “retired lane”, so she will need a home prepared to give her ongoing socialisation around smaller breeds. She will learn very quickly as she is bright as a button.

Dolly would probably like to live as an only dog so she can have all her own toys to herself, although she could live with a medium or large breed dog as long as it’s not that interested in toys. If you could offer a home to this fun girly, then please get in touch.
