SETH

Seth is a 4 year old ex-racing greyhound who has now been retired from the racing world, and is looking for his forever sofa. Seth is a gorgeous big black boy with a lovely thick coat that is in good condition. He is an elegant, well proportioned dog and has adorable ears that flop over each other.

Seth is a newcomer to our kennels and so we are still getting to know him. So far he has been a lovely friendly fella and enjoys a bit of fuss. His favourite time of day is his group walk as he loves to get out of his kennel and explore the countryside. We will update with this boys progress once we know him a little better.

Thus far Seth has been brilliant with the other greyhounds in our kennels and is quite laid back when around them. He has not been tested yet with smaller dogs or cats, but these can be carried out prior to adoption if required. Often ex-racing greyhounds need a bit of socialisation with smaller dog breeds as they would never have seen them before, and at the start may not realise they are dogs!

Seth has not yet been in a home environment, so new owners will need to be a bit patient at the start and give him time to settle in to the completely foreign environment. It generally takes greyhounds 10-14 days to start to settle in a home, and really all they need is time and patience.

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.

Seth is currently being kennelled in Co. Kerry, 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. Please note that adopters will need to travel to our nearest collection point to pick him up. 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 Seth, please email me on tamakin_84@yahoo.co.uk for our adoption application form and information pack. Thanks!
