Beech is an ex-racing greyhound and is now looking for her forever home. She is a lovely, sweet-natured girl, who loves her walks and gets very excited when she is trotting around the site.
She is quite a young girl and has lots of energy to still burn off. She can also be super placid and cuddle. the best of both worlds as she will go out on a long walk or wouldnt mind having a chill out by the fire. She is friendly towards other dogs but in her past she wouldn’t have been exposed to different breeds or personalities. She does have a high prey drive and would bolt towards squirrels, rabbits or cats. If someone were to put the work in to teach her good recall she would have to wear a muzzle as any responsible dog owner with an off lead greyhound should be.
Beech could live with another suitable dog, but no cats or small furries. She could live with suitable calm children 10+. She wouldn’t cope with children who were noisey and bouncy. At maximum she should be left for no longer than 4 hours. She needs someone who will be patient with her as she learns how to be house trained.
Greyhounds can be a popular choice for therpy dog work. They are calm, with a gentle nature which can make them ideal for working with the elderly or physically impared.
Beech is a greyhound that has previously been raced. Greyhounds themselves tend to be quiet and calm, enjoying the creature comforts of home mixed with a few walks here and there. Beech is no different. She like most greyhounds is rather sensitive and docile so will need to be trained with a calm and light hand with plenty of praise over vocal correction.
