Schooner is in kennels near Fleet, Hampshire, he arrived with us on the 8th of January 2020 and he was born on the 20th September 2014.
He is a confident, very friendly, dark brindle male. Schooner has a very happy, waggy tail! He now has a much shorter tail that he can wag and not hurt himself at the same time!
He loves his outings, travels well and is always very keen to get into the car.
This boy loves his food, he will give you a clean bowl every time! He also enjoys playing; either with you or with his toys.
This boy has a real talent for fetch, he loves a football or tennis ball to be thrown and will bring it back to you, ready for the next go. What a clever boy!
Schooner loves to have a cuddle with his human friends and will lean right into you, sometimes forgetting he is standing up as he is enjoying it so much!
He would be fine as an only pet or as a companion to another greyhound or larger breed of dog in an adult home (or one with teenagers) and he’d be fine to be left unattended for a few hours. He can walk nicely on a lead but has the potential to be strong if he’s chase instinct is triggered.
Schooner needs further socialization 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 owner who can continue his training around unfamiliar breeds of dog.
Schooner is very responsive to his handler so training him each day out and about he will soon learn the skills needed to enjoy the company of smaller dogs.
He spent a few weeks in foster care whilst he recovered from his tail amputation. Schooner was a very good boy whilst in a home, he lived very well with two other greyhounds and shared the attention well with the humans. Schooner is crate trained and toilet trained too.
No cats/small fluffies please.
