Amigo is in kennels near Fleet, Hampshire, he arrived with us on 16th July 2019 and he was born on 25th March 2016.
He is a friendly, inquisitive male who is very alert and loveable!
Amigo enjoys going for a walk and he is keen to investigate all that he finds. He walks nicely on the lead but can be strong if his chase instinct is triggered.
As Amigo has such a keen chase instinct he would benefit from socialisation classes, to help him accept non greyhound and smaller dogs generally as friends.
Whilst Amigo is in our care, he is receiving weekly training sessions with other breeds of dog, to help him become more familiar and confident around other dogs. Greyhound Lifeline will support his new owners moving forward with his training by showing them effective strategies to use.
During training sessions he has shown how responsive he is to his handler which is helping him over come his fears of smaller dogs. Over the last few weeks Amigo has made fantastic progress, he needs to trust, feel confident with his handler and given the right encouragement, with his new owner, he will continue to move his training forward.
Amigo is a good eater and is not remotely fussy over food. He loves to play with toys and especially footballs.
Watch out though as this boy is fast and leaves turning to the last second!
He would be suitable to live as an only pet or as a companion to a male or female greyhound or greyhound look-alike. He could live with teenagers or in an adult only home.
Amigo travels well and is keen to get into a car for his outings.
We will continue to update his page as he training progresses around smaller breeds of dog.
