Welcome to Callum – the most loving, handsome, perfect Greyhound Gentleman you will have the pleasure of knowing. Firstly, Callum is a very tall greyhound, but he is the most gentle dog you will ever meet. I have kids of all ages visiting my home and Callum is so gentle with all of them – letting them lead him around or take treats carefully from their tiny hands.
As a companion all he wants to do is be by my side – he is a Velcro hound as they say – and as soon as he knows where you are, he will quietly join you and not move until you do. He will want to sleep next to your bed but lets me sleep in as late as I like with-out so much as a peep. He does like to be with a companion and so will do best with a stay-at-home companion or family.
Callum has never once barked at or snipped at any dog even when they have jumped at him. He will bark however, if left alone. He needs two walks/strolls around the block, at least, every day. He will happily join you for longer. He is terrific on leash and usually walks right next to me – he can get scared of loud unexpected noises like trams. He is of course house trained – but prefers to do his business on your walks rather than in the backyard. He is confident traveling in a car, but you may need to still help him as he is still figuring out how to jump in.
He and I have done a lot of exploring together at the Botanical gardens, beaches, cafes and more. He loves families as he likes lots happening around him to keep him stimulated – he does not want to join in – he wants to sleep next to the action, but he seems to thrive in family life.
He loves being cuddled and petted as much as possible and will drop his head down to snuggle closer. Despite his size I take him everywhere with me and due to his quiet nature and beautiful demeanour he is a perfect dog to join you anywhere you choose to go. So please love his size and be ready to let him join in your life! Callum is the most gentle, beautiful, perfect dog I have had the pleasure of knowing.
Okay so who are you? Ideally you have too much love to give, work from home or are a stay-at-home parent looking for an epic best friend and have a family. Callum enjoys a lot of love and in return he will show you more than you can imagine. Be active enough that you can take him for two walk/strolls a day and at least 1-2 longer walks during the week.
