Captain is in kennels near Fleet, Hampshire.
He is a confident, very friendly, black, male who was born in January 2014 .
Captain loves his outings and travels well.
He loves to play but can be a little full on with his toys. Captain will fetch a ball, not always bringing it right back to you but will catch it mid air! He would play for hours with a ball or a soft cuddly toy. Do you enjoy a game of tennis? This could be the boy for you.
Captain loves people and although can be a bit demanding for attention, once calm he will stand nicely for a fuss to be made of him.
He would be fine as an only pet or as a companion to a laid back female greyhound in an adult home (or one with teenagers) and he’d be fine to be left unattended for a few hours. He is learning to walk nicely on a lead, with a Canny collar but has the potential to be strong if he’s chase instinct is triggered. His new owner needs to be prepared for this boys strength and strong chase instinct.
Captain needs further socialisation and training before he will accept smaller breeds of dog as friends, over the coming weeks we will be helping him to overcome this. We are looking for an experienced greyhound owner for Captain, who can continue his training around unfamiliar breeds of dog. During training sessions he has shown how responsive he is to his handler which will help him over come his fears of smaller dogs.
No cats/small fluffies please.
