Skyman ~ Striking Ladies Man – 3yo Black Greyhound

Post by tamakin on Tue Jan 03, 2012 12:31 pm

SKYMAN

Meet Skyman. He is a 3 year old ex-racing greyhound boy who’s racing career is now over. He is a lean, leggy boy with a very noble face and he is sure to be an absolute stunner once his currently dull coat gets some healthy shine to it.



~ Personality ~
Skyman is new to our rescue so we are still getting to know each other. So far though, he has been a real star and a bit of a ladies man! He loves getting some fuss and attention, and enjoys getting out to see the world too.



~ In the Home ~
Skyman has not yet been in a home environment, so new owners will need to be a bit understanding at the start and give him time to learn the house rules. It generally takes greyhounds 10-14 days to start to settle in a home, and really all they need is time and patience.

~ Other Animals ~
This gorgeous boy has been very good with the other greyhounds in our kennels so far, and enjoys his daily walk with them. He has not been tested yet with smaller dogs, but this can be carried out prior to adoption if required. It is unlikely that this lad will be cat friendly.



~ Out and About ~
Like most greyhounds, Skyman doesn’t have high energy levels and so does not need a huge amount of exercise. He will be content with two 30min walks a day and perhaps a chance to stretch his legs offlead in a safe area once or twice a week. Right now Skyman gets happy and overexcited when out on his walks, and does pull a bit on the lead when starting out. This should settle fairly quickly once he gets more used to all the attention and when he’s getting more opportunities to let off steam in a home environment. It is being worked on right now with our volunteer dog walkers and he is already showing improvement.



~ Greyhounds as Pets ~
In general greyhounds are calm, mannerly dogs that are well used to being handled. They can fit very well in to a wide range of different lifestyles and usually adjust to the home life very quickly. Their soft, easy going nature often makes them ideal to live in a family with children, while their love of lazing around and low exercise requirements can make them perfect for the elderly. Greyhounds also don’t shed as much as other more popular dog breeds and this can make them suitable to live with allergy sufferers.

~ Where Am I? ~
Skyman is currently in kennels in Norfolk. He can be homed anywhere in the UK, but please note that you may be required to travel to our rescue to meet and collect him.

~ Want To Adopt Me? ~
Gorgeous Skyman is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, de-flea'd and wormed and a homecheck will be required as part of the adoption procedure. This dear boy would benefit so very much from a chance to live in a foster home and Kerry Greyhounds UK is always eager for new foster volunteers. It is an extremely rewarding experience and costs are covered by us.

If you are interested in adopting or short-term fostering Skyman, please email me (Tam) on tamakin_84@yahoo.co.uk for our adoption application form and information pack. Emails are usually replied to within 24 hrs. Thanks!


~~ KERRY GREYHOUNDS UK ~~

Kerry Greyhounds UK is a small voluntary organisation that is based in Norfolk, England. It focuses on rehoming unwanted Irish greyhounds, as huge numbers are bred in Ireland each year and homes are few and far between. KGUK operates through a network of volunteers spaced over Ireland and the UK. We can look after approximately 30 greyhounds at any one time in both kennels and foster homes.

Each dog is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and given a full veterinary check before being adopted (unless stated otherwise).
We assess the suitability of all home offers, and we have homed greyhounds in all corners of the UK.

Our Website: www.kerrygreyhounds.co.uk

If interested in one of our hounds, please EMAIL me for our adoption application form and information pack. Once you have filled in and returned the application form, we will then contact you via phone or email to discuss adopting one of our hounds in more detail.

If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to contact us. I can be contacted through the following email:

Emails are usually replied to within 24hrs.

Thank you.

Skyman is still looking for his forever home.

We would love to find this boy a short term foster home while he waits to be adopted. If you are interested in fostering or adopting Skyman, please visit either our website’s Adoption Page or Fostering Page for information and instructions on our homing & fostering procedures.

SKYMAN

**UPDATED: 29TH JUNE 2012**

Meet Skyman. He is a 3 year old ex-racing greyhound boy who’s racing career is now over. He is a lean, leggy boy with a very noble face and is very striking now that his coat has gotten a glossy shine to it.



~ Personality ~
Skyman is a real star and a bit of a ladies man! He loves getting some fuss and attention, and enjoys getting out to see the world too. Skyman is proving to be a wonderful character with just enough quirk to keep you entertained by his antics without being a handful. He loves to play and romp around and seems to be reliving his puppyhood now that he has his loving foster home.




~ In the Home ~
The lovely lively Skyman moved in to foster care about 2 weeks ago, and is coping splendidly with all the changes. Though he has never been in a home before, he quickly mastered his housetraining and has wonderful food manners around food. Though now relishing any opportunity to play, he is still respectful of both people and dogs and will only play with those who are willing. He is a lovely boy and is a very happy chappie.



Skyman is truly living the life now, and is making a point of enjoying himself to the max now that he is out of kennels. He makes his foster parents laugh on a daily basis with his playful gallumps around the garden, flinging around a toy and trying to cajole his foster siblings into playing along. He has also taken a shining to his foster parent’s paddling pool, and on sunny days will stand in the shallow water for ages, just relishing the feeling of water between his toes!



~ Other Animals ~
This gorgeous boy is very amiable with other dogs around his size, and is currently sharing his foster home with a weimeraner x and two other greyhounds (one of which is blind). Skyman has learned that the blind greyhound doesn’t like to play, and is very respectful when told off for trying. Skyman has very good dog skills and greatly enjoys interacting with them.



Skyman does, however, need more socialisation around very small dogs as it is clear he doesn’t yet fully realise they’re dogs and not just squeaky toys! He can get very excited when he sees small dogs, simply because he has never seen them before now. It’s clear that he does not yet know that dogs can come in small sizes, and so this issue will improve with time and lots of safe but positive socialisation with smallies. This socialisation has already started with his foster parents, and we hope to see improvements shortly. He is not cat friendly.



~ Out and About ~
Like most greyhounds, Skyman will be content with two 30min walks a day and perhaps a chance to stretch his legs offlead in a safe area a couple of times a week. Because he is currently making a point of reliving his playful puppy days, Skyman would do best in a home with a relatively large garden that he can romp around in for his ‘mad hour’.



Right now Skyman gets very happy and therefore overexcited when out on his walks, and does pull a bit on the lead when starting out. This should settle fairly quickly once he gets more used to all the attention and when he’s getting more opportunities to let off steam in a home environment. It is being worked on right now with our fosterers and he is already showing improvement.
