More about RIVER

Ready, steady ...GO River!
This gorgeous greyhound came to us straight from a racing track and he is ready to jump into a new life right away.

River is a gentle soul who loves soft, calm strokes and human company. That is why saying goodbye is definitely not one of his favourite things to do! Even though River can be a little worried when meeting people for the first time, he gains his confidence very quickly and shows his playful and affectionate nature. As an ex-racer he has never lived in a house before, so his new family will need to be patient and understanding while he is settling in and getting used to a new routine. We are looking for a home that has had some experience with Greyhounds or that is willing to learn about the breed’s traits and behaviours.

Although River did not show any particular interest in chasing wildlife while being with us, due to his racing history, he might not be able to go off – lead. He has also spent his life surrounded by other Greyhounds, so he can be a little focused when seeing other dogs when out and about…who would have thought they come in different shapes and sizes?!

River loves food and toys, especially soft, squeaky ones and finds comfort in them when left alone in the kennels.
