Beech finds herself at WARS after being retired from racing. She can be quite strong and is learning to walk on a lead as he can on occasion get excited and jump around and lunge. Therefore i need an owner who can hold me at my worst times. She does enjoy a play and is slowly learning what toys are and how much fun they can be. She enjoys walks with other dogs around site and loves to play. However, like most greyhounds they are abit social inept. They dont understand other dogs body language, which often causes them to get in to trouble as other dogs sometimes dont want a giant doggie jumping around infront of them.
Due to her size, strength and excitability she would be suitable for a calm home with children 16+. She could possibly live with another suitable dog however, no cats or small Furies. I am not your typical greyhound as i am more energetic and struggle with independence in a home environment. My new owners would need to help me get through this feeling of separation slowly over time. She will need a fully enclosed garden with 5 foot or higher fences, where he can bounce and play. Greyhounds don’t need lots of exercise, but an opportunity to stretch their legs is appreciated. 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.
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.
