Introducing Wendy…this super affectionate, happy, loving hound is currently living with foster mum and greyhound foster brother Graham. She really is a dream dog.
Her foster mum works from home every day so has been around a lot and Wendy loves it. From the moment she arrived into home life she has settled in extremely well. All Wendy wants is affection and to give kisses (licks). She would fit into a home with someone who works from home or works part time as she loves the company. Wendy would do well with another dog in the home as she has been gentle with every dog she’s come across. Toys are a love of Wendy’s - she finds interest in anything that may be lying around however doesn’t rip things to pieces, rather just pulls them around. Wendy has already started to exhibit the typical happy and content greyhound attributes which includes chattering, roaching and air snipping. Wendy can sometimes get very excited, so a home with children above the age of 10 would be ideal. She has discovered a love for the couch and human bed while snuggling into her human for any chance of pats she can get, although she sleeps well on a bed of her own.
Wendy is very food driven. She loves any food she can get her little snoot into but she has learnt to understand the word “wait” before chowing down on her meal. Because of her love of food, her foster mum believes she will be easy to train with treats and simple word commands. Currently Wendy is walked twice a day, she would enjoy 1-2 a day and has walked up to 5km a number of times with no issues. She has been exposed to true Melbourne life, walking past busy trams and coffee shops. She is good on the lead and not too strong and no loud noises such as trams, trains or trucks affect her. She is toilet trained if access to outdoors is available. Wendy is great in the car, she may need a hand getting in initially but once she’s in she will lay down and relax. Although Wendy has thoroughly enjoyed her new-found freedom in a house life, it’s time for her to move in with her forever home with or without another doggie companion.
Note: We understand that Wendy may like to eat small pebbles and stones so her new forever home will need to not have any loose stone gardens/paths.
