Too Sweet

Apache is an almost two year old red brindle male. He is registered with the National Greyhound Association and he trained to race, but he never officially competed at a track. Now he is looking to follow his sister Cherokee, who we placed, into an early retirement and find his comfy couch. He has tested older kid, cat and other breed friendly. Apache has a very gentle and sweet soul. He is very expressive and once you get to know him, you can see how he is feeling in his eyes. He bonds very quickly to a person, but he needs time to get to know you and feel comfortable. He is cautious around new people and new environments, and will need a family that will give him time to get to know them. He absolutely loves being around the other greyhounds in his playgroup and that is when you see him shine. He loves to join in on the daily zoomies. He does not initiate them, but he races for the front of the pack. We have not seen him do them on his own. He has shown an interest in toys and likes the ones that squeak the most. Due to his need for adjustment time, we will only place him in a home with older kids (10+). We also believe that he would do best in a home with another dog, not necessarily a greyhound, to help with his adjustment and to be his BFF. He likes to go for a walk, but it helps if he knows his walker or he goes with another dog. He walks nicely on a leash and if you stop, he will lean on you. He loves to get treats and waits patiently for his turn. He will take them gently from our hands. Apache would make a greyt addition to an existing pack.
