BUBBLE

Bubble is a 2 year old ex-racing greyhound boy. He has a black coat with a couple of white toes. Bubble could do with gaining some condition as his coat health is quite poor right now and is dull in appearance. This will improve with good food and once he is out of the stressy kennels and in a loving home.

Bubble is quite lively and excitable for a greyhound and is full of energy. He seems to find kennel life quite stressful and we feel this excess energy is his way of trying to cope with it. He can get a bit bossy with other dogs when he is in this excited state, such as at the beginning of walk time, but its very early days yet for this boy and we are confident that he will settle down and start to relax once in the right home. He just needs someone with patience and a big enough heart to take him on and how him the joys of relaxation as right now he is not a happy dog.

Bubble has spent his whole life thus far in kennels, and so has not yet been in a home environment. New owners will need to be a bit understanding during the first couple of weeks and allow him time to get accustomed and learn the house rules. It usually takes 10-14 days for new greyhounds to start to settle down in a home, and really all they need is a bit of time and patience.

Bubble has not been tested with small dogs but this can be carried out prior to adoption. Often ex-racing greyhounds take a bit of socialisation work to realise smaller breeds are in fact dogs as they would never have seen them before. He is not cat friendly.

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.


**UPDATE: AUGUST 2010**

Dear Bubble is still waiting for his forever home, but is improving steadily in the kennels now that he is familiar with the routine. He is more accepting of other dogs and really enjoys his group walks. We feel he would do well in a young, active home where he will get plenty of daily exercise.

This gorgeous boy is currently being kennelled in Ireland, and can be transported via Kerry Greyhounds to the UK or Europe if a suitable home offer comes up. This will be organised and paid for by Kerry Greyhounds, and we ask only for a donation to help cover costs. He 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 fostering or adopting the lovely Bubble, please email me on tamakin_84@yahoo.co.uk for our adoption application and information pack. Thanks!
