Additional information

Billy shows little interest in meeting other dogs, preferring human company.
As he's an ex-racing Greyhound he does have a high chase drive and cannot live with small pets or cats.

Family and environment

What kind of family am I looking for?

He can live with teenagers and over. Billy is not used to living with a family and it may take him some time to feel comfortable in a home and get used to new sounds and the routine.
Billy thrives off human company.

What type of environment would suit me?

He would love a private, secure, 6ft fenced garden to zoom around in and sunbathe on hotter days.
We do not recommend he is let off lead on his walks but instead walked on a longline to allow him to run, explore and play with toys but ultimately is under control.
Billy's used to wearing a Greyhound muzzle on is walks and we recommend this is continued.

About Billy

Billy has found himself looking for a new home as he was retired from racing.
He's lived in a kennels his whole life and is looking for a loving family who can show him the love he's missed out on and how nice it is to live in a home with sofas to lounge on and a garden to charge around in when he wants to.
Billy loves his toys, he's never had them before and their his new favourite thing. He doesn't yet understand the concept of retrieving them but he is learning and we encourage him to bring them back and swap them for another toy. He doesn't always like to share currently but swapping another toy with him avoids conflict.
