MIKO

Miko is a 5 year old big brindle boy. He has a lovely light brindle coat with big 'pet-me' eyes and is in good condition.

Gentle giant Miko is a gorgeous easy going hound. He loves cuddles, walks well on the lead and is still very active but not too lively. He loves his people, and is well used to being handled.

Miko has not yet been in a home environment, so beginners will need to give him a settling in period when first adopted. Well adjusted greyhounds like Miko will take to a home environment very easily however, and we're sure he will learn to adapt to a sofa *very* quickly!

Miko's only hang-up is he is still learning that dogs come in all shapes and sizes. :rolleyes: After spending 5 years in a kennel environment, seeing only other greyhounds, he is unsure what to make of other breeds of dog right now. Smile He will learn that other dogs are indeed dogs with plenty of socialising and some patience. This lovely, easy going boy is ready and waiting for his forever home, and is sure to be a perfect companion for the right person. He is not cat friendly.

Miko is currently in kennels in Norfolk, where he waits for his forever home.

**UPDATE 07/2010**

Miko has been in his foster home in Norfolk, UK for about 3 months now and is doing very, very well. He is being socialised with smaller dogs on a weekly basis and this is improving his manner with them.

Miko ~ 5yr Old Big Brindle Softie (KGC) Mikon1

Miko is a big friendly brindle boy who adores the simple things in life – cuddles, good food and a soft bed. He is fully housetrained, non destructive and is ok to be left for a few hours with other dogs for company. He will need an owner who is happy to continue his socialisation with smaller dog breeds so that with enough time and repetition he will get used to meeting them calmly out on walks.

Miko ~ 5yr Old Big Brindle Softie (KGC) Mikon5

Miko is currently sharing his foster home with another fostered Kerry Greyhound, Mylie. They have become firm friends over the past few months and we feel it would be a shame to part them now. Mylie is an affectionate black girl with similar needs to Miko and we would like to find them a home together if at all possible. We will separate them, however, if the right home comes up for one.

Like most greyhounds, Miko will not need a huge amount of exercise. He is content with two 20min walks a day and perhaps a chance to stretch his legs offlead in a secure area once or twice a week.

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 dog breeds and this can make them suitable to live with allergy sufferers. Miko has been waiting for his home for a very long time now, and we have no idea why as he is a very pretty boy!

If you are interested in adopting Miko (and maybe Mylie too!), please email me on tamakin_84@yahoo.co.uk for our information pack and adoption application form. Thanks!

**UPDATE: AUGUST 2010**

Miko is continuing to do brilliantly in his foster home, and his bond with his ‘girlfriend’ Mylie is as strong as ever. They make a beautiful pair. Miko is now much better at meeting small dogs, though is still muzzled as a precaution. He is fantastic in the house and is in general a loving, easy going boy.

**UPDATE: OCTOBER 2010**

Miko is still waiting for his forever sofa, and we can’t understand why. He is a gorgeous boy and a perfect gentleman with brilliant manners. He has not put a foot wrong since going in to the home environment and has settled very easily into the busy life of his foster home.

Miko’s fosterers say he is a real cuddle monster and loves nothing better than to stretch out beside you on the sofa in the evenings. He adores the company of people and relishes any attention you give him.

Miko’s progress with other dogs continues to improve, and he now has some doggie friends that include non-greyhound shaped ones! He gets on wonderfully with the other greyhound he shares his home with and is in general a very easy going, relaxed boy, content with the simple things in life.

Miko recently took part in the KGC annual greyhound walk and was a real star with everyone he met.

**UPDATE: NOVEMBER 2010**

Miko is still waiting for his forever home, but is doing so well in his foster home. He is more than ready for his life long home now, and can make a fabulous family dog.

Miko is currently in foster care in Norfolk, UK where he waits to be adopted. He is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and a homecheck will be required as part of the adoption procedure.

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