Bowie ~ Handsome Friendly Boy – 3yo Brindle Greyhound

Post by tamakin on Mon May 30, 2011 7:32 pm

BOWIE

Bowie is a 3 year old ex-racing greyhound boy who, after running 15 races, is now finished with the racing life. Bowie has a handsome boy with a reddish brindle coat that is very soft and silky to the touch.

~ Personality ~
Bowie has only just come to us, so we are still assessing him. So far, though, Bowie has been nothing but a 5 star hound and has been easy going with the people and hounds in the kennels. He is very friendly and enjoys his head rubs.



~ Other Animals ~
Bowie has been good with the other greyhounds in our kennels so far, and likes getting to run with 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!

~ Out and About ~
Like most greyhounds, Bowie is a low energy boy 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.

~ Where Am I? ~
Bowie is currently being kennelled in Ireland and will be transported via Kerry Greyhounds to the UK or Europe when a suitable permanent or foster 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, and if you are in the UK and wish to meet before adopting him, he will be fostered in the Norfolk area.

~ Want To Adopt Me? ~
Bowie is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, de-flea'd and wormed and a homecheck will be required as part of the adoption procedure. This dear boy would benefit so very much from a chance to live in a foster home and Kerry Greyhound Connection is always eager for new foster volunteers. It is an extremely rewarding experience and costs are covered by us.

If you are interested in adopting or short-term fostering Bowie, please email me (Tam) on tamakin_84@yahoo.co.uk for our adoption application form and information pack. Emails are usually replied to within 24 hrs. Thanks!

We assess the suitability of all home offers, and we have homed greyhounds in Ireland, the UK, Central Europe and the USA.

BOWIE

**UPDATED: MARCH 2012**

Bowie is a 4 year old ex-racing greyhound boy who, after running 15 races, is now finished with the racing life. Bowie has a very handsome boy with a reddish brindle coat that is very soft and silky to the touch.





~ Personality ~
Bowie is a great fella and is eager to please. He likes to get on with everyone and has settled very well into his foster home. His fosterer describes him as a confident boy with a gentle, inquisitive nature. He also really enjoys his head rubs!



~ In the Home ~
Bowie gets on very well with his foster siblings and is calm in the house. He is fully housetrained and will ask if he needs to go outside. He sleeps quietly on his bed all night and never makes a peep when left with other dogs for company. This striking brindle boy picked up the house rules very easily and is responding well to basic training. He is going to make someone a wonderful, easy going companion.



~ Other Animals ~
Bowie had not gotten much experience in meeting other dogs before he came to us, so he is still learning that they come in all shapes and sizes. Right now he is social and calm with other large and medium sized dogs, but can become overexcited upon seeing a smaller dog such as a terrier. It is obvious that he is unsure what to make of the smaller breeds, but this uncertainty will diminish as he gets lots of exposure and repetition. His fosterer is working with him on a daily basis and now he will ignore the dog and continue walking when told. He is not suitable to live with cats.



~ Out and About ~
Bowie walks well on the lead and will only pull on the odd occasion he meets a cat or squirrel. His fosterer has worked with him on this, however, and now he will ignore and continue to walk on when told.

Like most greyhounds, Bowie is a low energy boy 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.



~ Where Am I? ~
Bowie is currently in foster care in Norfolk. He can be homed anywhere in the UK, but please note that you may be required to travel to our rescue to meet and collect him.

~ Want To Adopt Me? ~
Bowie 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 Bowie, please visit our website’s Adoption Page 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!
