More about JOLENE

Jolene is a bubbly Greyhound, based at our Old Windsor centre. If after reading her information you would like to know more about her please email bow.rehomers@battersea.org.uk

When Jolene was first with us at Battersea, she was very worried of and sensitive to noise, and did not enjoy going for walks. She is spending some time in a foster home, and she has really flourished – it has been so rewarding to see her confidence grow and her true personality emerge. She has been housetrained, travelled in the car and, with a consistent routine and knowing what is expected at home, she is settled and loves nothing more than sunbathing in the garden. She is very food motivated and although this is great for training, she does sometimes try to help herself at home! She is gentle with people and likes to be in the company of her foster carers, even if she just snoozes in the same room as them.

Jolene is playful with toys and will happily throw them around to have a game on her own, or chase them if you engage in play with her. She is food motivated and gets very excited, tapping her feet in anticipation if she knows there is a treat on offer.
Now that she is happy in areas she knows, Jolene looks forward to walks in the park and will happily walk on lead for an hour or so– she will often remind her foster carer that it is time for a walk but nudging her or giving a small bark. She sometimes stops to watch the world go by but can be encouraged to walk on again.

Jolene is thriving on having a good routine, and is now a really charming dog to have at home. Her foster carers are very much enjoying having Jolene but would love her for her to find her forever home.
