Speedy is a stunning 7 year old Greyhound boy who landed into our care recently here at Greyhound Gap. Speedy is a silly waggy tailed boy who is always outwardly happy, we do feel though that Speedy is a little worried about the world around him and so some of his gleeful persona is over compensation for his worries. That said he is keen and eager to make friends with all and to experience everything around him. Speedy would most definitely be suited to a home with an already resident female Greyhound in. A calm yet confident girlfriend to help him understand that out and about is full of lovely people and places and that he has nothing to fear.
We do not feel he would cope as an only dog in a home. Speedy would be best suited to a home with someone around all or most of the time in the beginning to help him adapt to home life and all that it entails and can be rehomed with dog savvy children 8 years and upwards. We feel once over his worries he will be a fabulous family dog and want to be included in all of lifes little trips and adventures as one thing Speedy is is as nosey and curious as he is unsure. Speedy is NOT cat friendly and is still a little overly curious with other breeds of dogs so he needs a home confident and with the time and experience to introduce him slowly to other breeds and invest in gentle socialisation. Speedy travels like a dream and walks well on the lead in the main. Although Speedy is currently with us here in kennels he does work hard to try and keep his kennel area clean so we don’t envisage house training being a huge issue.
Speedy is vaccinated, kc vaccinated, de flead, de wormed, microchipped, neutered and has received a dental resulting in him only having his 4 canines remaining! This does not stop him though as his greatest love in the whole world is food. He will also be rehomed with 4 weeks free insurance. Speedy is currently located in Stoke on Trent and can be rehomed nationwide subject to a successful homevisit and all members of the immediate family and any resident dogs being willing to travel to meet with him.
Here at Greyhound Gap we pride ourselves on a regimented matching procedure and endeavour to ensure that dogs and any new potential homes are matched suitably. We ask that anyone enquiring to adopt a dog from us retains an open mind to the dog must suited to their environment.
