Comet is a 3 year old greyhound x saluki and a typical bouncy boy full of beans. He’s a very striking in his black and white colours. He’s been living in a foster home for a few weeks now and has settled in really well, living with up to 3 other dogs, both male and female.
He’s good with other dogs, in the house and out and adores people, especially men! In fact, he relishes company. He’ll lean into you for a fuss and really likes human contact and being made a big fuss of.
He adores his walks and steps out well on the lead, though he can get excited when he sees wildlife. He can be a little unsure of new environments but given time soon gains his confidence. His recall in his foster homes small field has been reliable (without distractions), but he’ll need to bond with his new family before going off-lead in his new home. He’s quiet through the night and clean in the house and loves nothing more than a long snooze on the sofa in the sunshine after a walk.
Comet loves to play with his doggie friends, though he can be too enthusiastic for some! He also loves to play with toys, with his favourite being a good game of tug.
He knows some basic commands such as down and sit and loves his food and his treats, particularly fish skins – he will really enjoy learning new things, in a positive and reward-based way. He is comfortable being left for a few hours in the company of another dog. Comet is a sensitive boy with an anxious side to him, and so can be a little unsure about some handling so we think a home without children would be better for him. Comet needs a calm home environment, and owners who will be kind and consistent with him, as he does worry when unsure what is expected of him.
Comet’s party trick is opening doors (if they have handles), so certainly to start with its best to either lock doors or turn up the handles! Now he has settled into this foster home he has stopped doing this.
Comet is a really affectionate boy, keen to be part of the gang and curious about the world. He’d make a wonderful companion for someone wanting a lively, friendly dog.
