JACK

Needs Time

Jack is a three year old brindle male. He ran 69 races at Tri-State Kennel Club. While he was at the track, he slipped his collar and ran away. The trainers set up a search and were able to find him. Now he is looking for a home that will take their time with him and help him settle into his new surroundings. He has tested older kid, cat and other breed friendly. Jack is a sweet boy. Once he gets used to you and understands what you expect of him, he becomes very attached to you. He doesn't like loud noises, so city life is not for him. He enjoys being with the other greyhounds in his playgroup. He gravitates more towards the mid-pack dogs and avoids the more alpha dogs. If another greyhound starts to pick with him, he will walk away and keep to himself. He will join in with the daily zoomies, but we have not noticed him initiating them or doing them on his own. He has zero interest in toys. You can squeak a toy all day and he doesn't even look at you. If you throw a toy for him, he will run the other way. Due to his timid nature and need for a quiet environment, we will only place him with older kids (12+). We believe that he would do best with another dog, not necessarily a greyhound, in his home to help him with his inhibitions and be a dog. He doesn't mind going for a walk, but a loud noise or real sudden movement makes him stop. He can be encouraged to finish the walk. His forever home should have a fenced in backyard so he can relieve himself without having to be leash walked. He enjoys getting a treat and he does take them gently from your hand. Jack would make a wonderful addition to an existing pack.
