Hey Buddy!! Welcome to the NCGL family! Buddy is a lovely young boy (probably about 2) and just learning the ropes of living in a house. He was very stressed on his trip to his foster home but is slowly gaining confidence. He is becoming a better passenger when travelling in the car and gets along well with his two greyhound housemates. He is an anxious dog and will need a patient and calm hand to help him feel safe and secure.
He has good leash manners – no pulling until he sees another dog then he gets VERY excited and leaps, lunges and barks excitedly. Considering he is not a particularly large greyhound – he is very strong. He is also very excited by small creatures.
But when he feels secure he is a sweet and fun loving boy. He is starting to play with stuffed toys and has recently developed the not uncommon greyhound habit of hoarding – he likes picking through the recycling box looking for cardboard to take back to his bed, and he has a fondness for cushions – especially when you’re using them! That greyhound sense of humour seems to be coming out.
We would like Buddy to go to a quiet home experienced with anxious dogs. Because he is so easily over-stimulated, Buddy really needs a quiet environment both inside and outside the home.
Buddy is currently ‘on hold’ as we continue to learn what he needs to make the most of his potential.
