Lenny is a 2-3 year old male Greyhound. He is based in the Midlands, available for adoption over the UK (collection from location or sometimes a part-way meeting can be agreed upon) Lenny is very friendly and well-behaved.
Lenny came to our Emergency Foster in Burton after he was privately rehomed but the lady who took him could not keep him as he was not doing good with her resident dog and showed food guarding.
But the original family that had him from a pup and Re-homed didn’t want him back (as he was growing into a newborn baby) and he was booked to be put to sleep.
We had only a few hours to rescue him and luckily an emergency foster was found. We expected Lenny to be super anxious and unsure in a new home but he was very good and calm. His foster also says that she didn’t notice any food guarding at Lenny.
Most likely there were some human mistakes in his temporary home, which led to Lenny being very stressed and anxious. Lenny is currently at our Foster with no dogs and with 14 years 14-year-old child.
This boy deserves the best home ever. He is a gentle giant, full of love and cuddles. He is a typical sighthound and he is a 22kg lapdog who is unaware of his size.
Lenny is not good with cats and he is a lot daft”. Lenny is very affectionate and adores to be near humans.
Greyhounds are known for their gentle and calm nature, friendly and non-aggressive, although some can be aloof toward strangers.
They’re intelligent and independent, even catlike in many ways. Despite their racing history, Greyhounds have moderate exercise needs. Perfectly happy with two 30-40 minute walks a day. Greyhounds are built for speed, not stamina.
They enjoy short bursts of activity but are also content lounging indoors”. Lenny is looking for a family with no young kids, preferably no dogs and experienced with greyhounds or similar breeds. Lenny has no known health issues; castrated. Full vaccination pack, microchipped.
