Three year old greyhound Bear arrived as a stray in our kennels back in September last year and was rather a ‘woolly’ bear at first, having a very full kennel coat. Over time this gradually brushed out to reveal a very handsome brindle boy indeed.
From what we have managed to find out Bear was a non racer. He is a friendly dog and is popular with our walking volunteers walking well on the lead and has a patient, reliable temperament. However, he has recently started to bark at other dogs he meets when out on walks and volunteers are currently working on modifying this behaviour. He has occasionally worked with our volunteers as part of the fundraising team, has taken everything in his stride and seems quick to learn.
Over the Christmas holidays Bear was lucky to spend time in a home and he soon became accustomed to noises such as the vacuum cleaner and extractor fan quickly adapting to a home routine. Bear does seem to love human attention and to play games but is equally happy at other times to sleep for hours – which is, of course, what greyhounds do best!
We are looking for an experienced greyhound owner for Bear, ideally a home in a semi rural area where Bear could take his time becoming accustomed to the outside world, and at a pace that suits him.
If you would like to find out more about Bear featured here we would love to hear from you. Please contact either Sue our re-homing co-ordinator on 07794463249 or Siobhan at kennels on 07960561988
