Linus is a 3 year old Greyhound and is a lovely well behaved lad but is a little nervous at first in new situations. He soon settles down though and comes out of his shell. His cheeky side is already starting to show and he is a bit of a foody.

Typically Greyhound Linus walks well on his leash but occasionally he will do an odd half hearted little hop skip and a jump type action although it isn’t a full on lunge and isn’t aimed at anything in particular just one of his little quirks.

Linus is good to be left with the company of other dogs he is currently residing with a greyhound male and female both who he gets on well with and has been fine meeting other dogs both big and small on leash.

Linus is a real beautiful boy who once relaxed and settled will come on in leaps and bounds! He definately needs a companion in the home and a slightly older steady bitch would be the best for him as a companion.

Linus has had a run in a fully enclosed private area and with no distractions is really attentive and his recall is good. Obviously though he couldn’t be allowed to run in an open area where things may catch his eye as he would be off especially if spooked as he is still a little nervous at the moment but the potential is there.

Linus is a lovely boy just looking for an adoring forever family, whoever gets this boy will be rewarded with a lifetime of love and affection. Linus hasn’t yet been cat tested but is not thought to be cat safe. Linus is vaccinated kennel cough vaccinated de-flead wormed and neutered/microchipped.

Greyhound Gap

Greyhound Gap is a small independent charity set up to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome greyhounds and lurchers who find themselves in a ‘put to sleep’ situation in UK pounds. Funded almost entirely by donations, we rehome around 150 dogs each year. We can have around 40-50 dogs at any one time in our kennels based in Kidsgrove, Stoke on Trent and a further 30-40 in foster homes. Greyhound Gap operates on a national basis so our dogs can be homed throughout the UK subject to a suitable home visit being carried out.

If you are interested in adopting a dog from Greyhound Gap, we would ask that in the first instance you could take a few moments to complete our pre-adoption questionnaire if you have not already done so: http://www.greyhoundgap.org.uk/our-dogs/pre-adoption-questionnaire
