Greyhound of the Week - Tessa
Tessa has been with us for some time, as she needs a special home.
She is a very relaxed and easy girl around the house and settles into new surroundings very easily. She is very well house trained. She has been fostered with a Labrador, a Chihuahua & another Greyhound at different foster carers & has gotten on well with all of them.
She is an affectionate and playful dog.
When out walking she is generally good on the lead and doesn't pull excessively. But at times (seemingly random - not all the time) if she sees a dog coming towards her in the distance she gets over-excited jumping up & often barking, which people tend to misinterpret as prey drive. If she is allowed to get up close to the dog she is generally fine with it (assuming the other dog is friendly). In a situation with lots of mixed dogs (such as dogs gathering to go into obedience classes) she does not behave in this way at all but just ignores the other dogs.
Tessa is a great dog - she just has a foible.
Are you the right home for her?
