Foster families automatically can adopt the grey they foster
Hi, I am T Dog. My full name is Flying T Dog born December 13, 2019.
I get an “A” in roaching, bed fails, squeaking toys and zoomies (with or without a toy). I love belly rubs, duh. I also give kisses and may nibble your chin during them. I will put my head in your lap to make it easy to pet me. I am very sweet, enjoy getting pettings and will snuggle.
My foster humans say I am VERY, VERY food motivated. Especially for that reason, I have not been given human food or food that was not placed in my bowl first… except for dog treats are handed to me. Food motivation has helped me to learn “target training”. During meals, I eat out of a “slow down” bowl.
I like squeaky toys, but they should not have long pieces as I try to swallow them. I cannot risk items on the floor are not food, so everything goes in my mouth. Except I have not bothered shoes. I am unsure about cats and small dogs. I don’t think it would be good for me to live with them. I do know that I really want to chase squirrels. You better see them before me and prepare yourself. I am very strong and can give you a solid jerk when I see them when walking me on the leash.
I get along with another greyhound in the house and will sometimes join her in her dog bed, even touching her, but I am not as willing for her to get in it with me.
Children are fun to meet and easy to give kisses.
I love car rides. I jump in and get out easily. I even lay down before being told to exit the vehicle. Most of the time the humans take both of us hounds when they go somewhere. I am not crated when the humans do leave me at the house, but they do put my muzzle on me. They gate off the kitchen, but if not well secured I will get through it.
I am not afraid of thunder or hardwood floors. Once I gain some confidence, I may not need to live with a buddy. I still can get scared and balk if you try to force me or fuss too much. A calm voice helps me.
Is there an empty dog bed in your home that I can call my own?
