|Zippy is a sweet & affectionate girl!|
Gender: Female Age: 3 years old
3 ½ year old Zippy simply has the sweetest nature and temperament. She is totally people oriented, wanting to make friends and lean on nearly everyone she encounters on her walks. She desperately wants to be loved and gives her affection easily.
Here is an update from her foster mum:
When she first arrived she was shy and unsure on arrival, but after a week has started to relax and does not need to shadow my every movement.
Toilet training is going well as is lead training. She is also learning basic commands such as ‘wait’, ‘ ‘breakfast’,’ dinner’, ‘outside’, ‘down’ etc.
Zippy gets very excited before walks and can jump around briefly in wild enthusiasm but we are working on her becoming a calmer grey. Her curiosity is unbounded and she reacts well with other dogs, making friends and behaving herself.
As she has not been exposed too much of the world she is intensely curious about cats and could not be termed ‘cat friendly’.
Her gentle, affectionate nature would blossom in a calm home, where her anxiety would lessen. Ideally she needs someone who would be around for much of the time. That said, she can cope with separation for a few hours, especially after being fed a parting treat.
Typical greyhound she will eat just about anything and cupboard security needs to be dog proof! She can also hoover up kitchen bench contents silently so you must be aware that she is a counter surfer.
As time goes on and becomes more relaxed she will develop into an absolutely beautiful, devoted and loving companion for some lucky person!
