Jake ~ Beautifully Mannered Boy – 5yo Black Greyhound

Post by tamakin on Wed May 30, 2012 9:24 pm

JAKE

**UPDATED: MAY 2012**

Meet the handsome Jake. He is a 5 year old ex-racing greyhound boy who has worked long and hard and is now very deserving of his retirement home. Jake is a tall boy with arguably the longest neck we’ve ever seen, even for a greyhound! He has been well looked after by his previous owner, and is in beautiful health and condition.



~ Personality ~
Jake is a loving, sociable boy who doesn’t have a mean bone in his body. He has been handled kindly in the past, so has great manners and adores people, soaking up any fuss like a sponge. He is also a ‘leaner’ and loves to rest against you while you pet him. He is confident in himself and is in general a well-adjusted dog. He seems to have just recently discovered the joys of toys, and is great fun to watch clowning around with his squeaky ball.



~ In the Home ~
Jake has been in a foster home now for about 4 weeks, and is doing well. He has slid into the home life as though he was always there, and is a very easy boy to have around the house. He has gotten the hang of housetraining and is clean through the night, asking to go out when needed. Jake is also very good when left, and we feel he would be suitable as a single dog or for people who work during the day. When left alone he simply snoozes away and is not destructive.

~ Other Animals ~
Dear Jake is very good with other greyhounds, and is brilliant with the greyhounds he is sharing his foster home with right now. He has no qualms sharing his space and is excellently behaved around them.

Other breeds of dog, however, are another story and right now Jake is very interested in chasing them. He would never have seen other breeds of dog during his racing career, and right now he is unsure what to do about them. With lots of socialising and safe interactions, Jake has the potential to vastly improve with this issue, but it will take time for him to realise that dogs actually do come in all shapes and sizes. His fosterer is working on this issue on a daily basis, but this work is likely something that will need to be continued into his forever home, so new owners will need to be aware of it.



~ Out and About ~
Jake walks well on the lead and will trot along to heel happily provided there are no small dogs about. If he sees anything small and moving, however, he can pull and right now his fosterer is working with him to reduce this. Like most greyhounds, Jake 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.

~ 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 Can I Live? ~
Because of his current issue with other dogs, Jake would be best in an experienced home with people who understand greyhounds and who have ideally had experience with this issue in the past. He will need regular, patient and repeated dog socialisation in order for him to gradually realise that all dogs are just like greyhounds, and so he will need an owner dedicated to furthering his progress.

Apart from this one and only issue, Jake is the perfect gentleman and an excellent companion. He can be left alone, thus being suitable for people who work during the day, and would slot easily into an existing pack of greyhounds. He has oodles of love to give to the right family who can overlook his dog problems and see what a beautiful, loving companion he can be.

~ Where Am I? ~
Jake 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 meet and collect him.

~ Want To Adopt Me? ~
Jake is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, de-flea'd and wormed and a homecheck will be required as part of the adoption procedure.

If you are interested in adopting Jake, please visit our website’s [url=http://s300889640.websitehome.co.uk/uk/adoption.html AdoptionPage for information and instructions on our homing procedures. If you have any further questions or problems, please feel free to email me (Tam) on tamakin_84@yahoo.co.uk. 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 and lurchers, 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 dogs at any one time in both kennels and foster homes.

Each dog is neutered, vaccinated, & microchipped 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.

He has gotten the hang of housetraining and is clean through the night, asking to go out when needed. He is responsive to basic commands and has learned not to counter surf and to go out when told. He is a really lovely boy who has his loopy moments of bouncy play, but is foremost a big soft couch potato who likes to snooze and be comfortable.

Jake is also very good when left, and we feel he would be suitable as a single dog and/or for people who work during the day. He is currently living as an only dog and is faultless in the home. When left alone he simply snoozes away and is not destructive.
