Boss is a friendly excited boy, he loves to play and enjoys the company of other dogs. He can be excitable on greeting so may be a bit much for small children and smaller sized dogs.
Boss is heading off to foster care and will be available in around three weeks time. His foster carer will provide weekly updates which you will be able to read here on his profile. If you think that you have the right home for him, you can arrange to have a meet and greet with him at the completion of his foster period.
The reason behind Gaptas fostering a greyhound out prior to offering them for adoption is to prepare them for the many different situations & experiences they will encounter in their new life as a pet. The other aim of foster care is to gauge & provide feedback on the dogs temperament and responses to different situations to determine the most appropriate home to suit the dog. The entire foster period is an information gathering phase as well as setting firm rules and boundaries to help the greyhound transition.
To help the dog along we ask of the following in foster care.
- House training
- Sleeping on their own bed
- Walking calmly on lead
- Walking up and down stairs
- Get in and out of a car
- Alone time
- Basic commands – No, On your bed, Wait
