Greyhound of the Week - Baloo
Just like his namesake in The Jungle Book, Baloo is a gentle soul.
He is a quiet and unassuming boy - happy to sunbake out on the lawn or rest for hours on a comfy dog bed. He walks well on lead, has a healthy appetite and has learned to use a doggy door.
Baloo is shy with strangers and when in new surroundings. He has lived with 7 and 10 year old children and is very gentle with them. he may not however be comfortable with noisy or boisterous toddlers.
He is sociable with other dogs but seems equally happy on his own. He would probably thrive in a home with another Greyhound, especially a female.
He is best suited to a family home in a suburban area - not the bustling innner-city suburbs. He will need someone who can provide him with a quiet, safe environment and time to develop into a confident and happy hound.
