SIDNEY

Sidney is a 5 year old large male greyhound. He has a soft black coat with a greying, distinguished muzzle and is an ex-coursing dog.

Sidney has had a hard working life so far and has an air of 'been there, done that' with all that he sees. He's a very quiet boy who is easy to get on with and is no hassle in the kennels. Sidney has a big, soft heart and wants nothing more than to lay in the sun and relax in his retirement. He's rapidly learning what cuddles are all about and is relishing all the attention he's getting now.

As Sidney is an ex-courser, care should be taken with introducing him to smaller dogs as he has likely never seen non-greyhound shaped dogs before and at first he wont know what they are! He is not cat friendly. He has not yet experienced the joys of a home environment, so new owners will need to be understanding for the first couple of weeks and allow him to settle in. We think that once Sidney settles in to his home, he's going to be a no-hassle, no-bother loyal companion with his softy heart.


**UPDATE 08/2010**

Sidney is waiting for his forever home still, though has settled well in to our kennel routine and knows when its time for his favourite things – breakfast and dinner! Sidney is a really lovely boy, a big cuddler who will relish just being able to stretch out on a soft sofa for the day. He will make a lovely, easy addition to the family.

**UPDATE 08/2010b**

Sidney has now travelled across to the UK, where he is waiting for his forever home. He is a truly lovely boy who is very biddable. He has been introduced to some small dogs and has gotten on very well with them, though he will still need to be watched at the beginning if smaller dogs are offlead and running around until he gets used to it.

Sidney has had to have a series of operations on his paw pads as he had bad corns that his previous owner left go untreated. He is now doing very well and is only occasionally lame on hard ground, though this is continuing to improve as his pads harden up again. He is clean in the house, non destructive, and such an easy lad to keep contented.

Sidney is currently in kennels in Norfolk, UK. He is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and a homecheck will be required as part of the adoption procedure.

If you are interested in adopting or fostering Sidney, please email me on tamakin_84@yahoo.co.uk for our adoption application form and information pack. Thanks.
