Jerry is a real character, in the first photograph we saw of him he was cheekily sticking his tongue out.  Jerry is 4 ½ years old and he loves soft toys and playing with them he just needs his very own humans to throw them for him. As you can see from his photographs he has the cutest turned up nose and really likes to lean in for a cuddle. Jerry stands at 31″ to the shoulder so is quite a large greyhound but absolutely gorgeous.

Having just retired from racing though Jerry isn’t quite sure what small dogs are yet and can be a little overexcited by them and so he will need some further training and support in this area to begin with. He could live with another large breed dog though pending successful introductions.

Whilst Jerry does like a cuddle he isn’t very used to it yet and so we suggest he would need to be homed with older children.

Jerry is gentle when taking treats and walks well on the lead. He can be a little under confident when encountering new things but he soon gets use to things and we are confident that in his new home he would blossom and let that cheeky side shine.
