Jensen ~ Affectionate, Steady Lad – 4yo Black Greyhound

Post by tamakin on Wed Jan 19, 2011 1:32 pm

JENSEN

Jensen is a 4 year old ex-racing greyhound boy who was retired from the track after a successful racing career. He is a lovely black boy with a distinguished, greying face. Dear Jensen was homed in the summer, but has sadly had to come back to us now due to a change in his owner’s work hours which meant he was being left for longer periods of time. He has also had half his tail removed after an injury, though he still wags it at every opportunity!



Jensen is a lovely, friendly chap who was well cared for during his racing career. As such he adores being around people and has a genial, laid back nature. He also absolutely loves his home comforts and is content to snooze most of the day away on his bed, though preferably will snooze on yours! He is used to living in a home, is housetrained and is ok to be left with another dog for company.



Jensen was initially very interested in small dogs, having never seen them before in his life. He has calmed down a lot over the past few months, however, and is now much more dependable around them. He can still get overly keen if the other dogs are in an excited state or are running around him, and we would recommend he be muzzled as a precaution when offlead. He would also greatly benefit from attending some dog training or socialising classes so he can get used to seeing many different sized dogs. If introduced to other dogs in a slow, calm way, Jensen is a well-mannered dog. He is not cat friendly.



Jensen is a doddle to walk on the lead and rarely pulls. He is used to busy traffic and is quite steady when out, not usually getting spooked by noisy areas. Like most greyhounds, Jensen is also a total couch potato and 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.



Jensen was sharing his previous home with his friend Lucas, who has also been returned to us. Ideally we would love to find these two boys a home together as they enjoy each other’s company, but we will consider all home offers and can home them separately if it works out that way. This dear boy would be best suited to a relatively quiet home with no young children and another greyhound buddy to keep him company during the day.



Jensen is currently in kennels in Norfolk, UK. This dear boy really doesn’t like kennels and we would love to find him a foster home while he waits for his new forever home to come his way. He can be homed anywhere in the UK, but please note that you will be required to travel to the foster home to meet/collect him. 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 adopting or short-term fostering Jensen, please email me on tamakin_84@yahoo.co.uk for our adoption application form and information pack. Emails are usually replied to within 24 hrs. Thanks!

**UPDATE: MAY 2011**

Dear Jensen is still waiting for his new forever home, though his buddy Lucas has now found his. Jensen is a lovely boy who is sadly being overlooked again and again.



~ Personality ~
Jenson looooves people and is such a cuddlebug. He is always happy to see someone come to his kennel and always has a waggy tail… even if it is a bit shorter than your average hound! Jensen will need an experienced hound owner who knows how greyhounds can behave. This boy is so loving and has so much to give to the right owner.



The lovely Jensen now has a video up on youtube, which you can see via this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-8H7BChbVPc

~ Other Animals ~
Jensen is a bit of ladies’ man and prefers the company of girls over the fella’s. He has lived with Lucas, another male, in the past but we feel Jensen would be happiest either with a more laid back female or as an only hound.



Jensen’s main flaw is he is not overly sociable with non-greyhounds. He is still learning that dogs can come in all shapes and sizes, and his first reaction right now is still to chase rather than to greet. He is getting better though, and is already better than when he first came to us. All this boy needs is repetition and time. He would be best with a patient owner who can look past this issue and see what a fantastic family member Jensen can be.

**UPDATE: MAY 2011**

Dear Jensen has finally moved out of kennels and is now in a lovely foster home where he can start to relax and enjoy his comforts once again. We really hope to find this lad his forever home in the near future, as he has so, so much love to give to the right person.

~ Where Am I? ~
Jensen is currently in foster care in Norfolk, UK. He can be homed anywhere in the UK, but please note that you will be required to travel to the foster home to meet/collect him.

~ Want To Adopt Me? ~
Jensen is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, de-flea'd and wormed and a homecheck will be required as part of the adoption procedure. We would very dearly love to find this boy a temporary foster home, as he is used to being in a home so having to live in kennels now must be rather harsh. Please contact us if you could offer this boy a temporary foster home.

If you are interested in adopting Jensen, please email me on tamakin_84@yahoo.co.uk for our adoption application form and information pack. Emails are usually replied to within 24 hrs. Thanks!
