Thumper has been homed – 4.4.21.
Thumper is in kennels near Fleet, Hampshire, he arrived with us on the 27th January 2021 and he was born on the 13th July 2015.
He is a friendly, larger than life, excitable chap who is looking for his own family. Thumper has oodles of character and he really is a pup in an adults body, he is such a friendly, cuddle bunny!
Thumper enjoys being outside and around people, no sad day with this boy around. If you are someone who enjoys the outside then this chap is your man!
He loves getting into a car for his outings and will settle down quickly, we are working with him on waiting to get out of the car upon arrival as he is so excited he just wants to be outside again!
Thumper would either prefer a home of his own or one with a female greyhound/other large breed of dog to share it with. He could live with children over the age of ten, due to his size and excitement.
This boy has been assessed with other breeds of dog, he really just wants to say ‘hello’ to everything and everyone! The lad sometimes forgets how big he is compared to other dogs and just needs to control his playful excitement which he is correcting himself. Thumper is enjoying his additional walks ‘in public places’ where he is practising how to greet other dogs in a slowed down way!
His new owner now needs to continue this training by meeting and greeting a range of dogs up close and far away. He is very responsive to his handler and listens well as he wants to please you!
Thumper just loves to have fun with you and his toys, his favourite toy has got to be the tennis ball, followered shortly by ‘stop the rolling football or catch the flying teddy!’
After all this excitment and exercise Thumper doesn’t want anything else but a ‘special, quiet time’ with his human friends. The boy could spend all day having cuddles if you had time for it, but he knows ‘us’ humans have to work too so after an extended special time with his own humans he will retire to his bed for a good snooze, saving up his energy for the next round later on! Thumper loves taking his toys to bed with him, especially likes have ‘bone’ time, yummy, yummy! Watch out though as you may find other things hidden in his bed whilst he has helped you to tidy up! Dustpan and brush missing anyone?
Are you looking for an active greyhound or do you enjoy walking in the countryside? Thumper could be the chap for you. How can you not resist that puppy face and those gorgeous eyes!
Thunper shows the same amount of energy as a younger dog but also can be quiet and calm where needed. Make Thumper’s day by adopting him!
