Captain is reserved.
Captain is in foster care near Fleet, Hampshire.
He is a confident, very friendly, black male who was born on the 2nd January 2014 .
Captain is quiet at night, he enjoys snuggling up to his foster brothers and sister.
He enjoys his food and there will be no need for washing his bowl as he is a greyhound dishwasher!
Captain is fascinated by his own reflection, he’ll whimper, wag his tail and then get frustrated by the mystery doggie, he will then seek out reassurance from his human companion.
This boy loves his outings and travels well. He can get very excited as soon as he knows it’s walking time but has learnt if you stand still your lead will be put on faster!
He loves to play, 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 or football? This could be the boy for you.
Captain has lots of energy to burn off! Do you like running or walking? You could have a new companion called Captain!
Captain loves people and when calm he will stand nicely for a fuss to be made of him. He knows his name and especially when it is food and treat time!
Captain isn’t very keen on having his teeth cleaned but will accept a little brushing each day. He chatters for almost everything, cuddles, fuss, walks or on greeting his friends first thing in the morning.
He would be fine as an only pet or as a companion to a laid back larger dog in an adult home (or one with teenagers) and he’d be fine to be left unattended for a few hours. He has learnt to walk nicely but has the potential to be strong if he’s chase instinct is triggered.
During our weekly other breed training sessions he has shown how responsive he is to his handler, although his isn’t 100% comfortable around other breeds yet, he is able to listen and respond to the commands given to him which are helping him over come his fears of smaller dogs when he is out and about.
Whilst in his foster home he mostly walks well, he will pull strongly when he wants to get somewhere but he can be checked on the lead and is responsive to his handler. He is always on a very short lead around other dogs, small children and cats. He will stare at cats but can be moved past with very little effort – the same for other dogs that he meets on walks.
No cats/small fluffies please.
