Gorgeous Sally is 22.5 inches to the shoulder and around 2 years old. She is a Whippet cross.
Sally hasn’t had the best start in life. She was found as a stray and we think she may have had a traumatic time in the past. She was fearful in kennels and wouldn’t let anyone come near her, but she has really flourished being in a foster home.
To begin with she found it incredibly difficult being near us. However, we gave her some space and time and let her decide when the time was right for her to start interacting. Sally is now coming out on walks with us (and she even went to the beach which she loved!), and has been lying near us on the sofa. Sally is quite a curious girl and often comes up to see what we are doing. She is also quite lazy at the moment, very happy to sleep all night and a lot of the day too. We’re thinking there is definitely Greyhound in there somewhere!
Sally would really like:
A quiet adult only home. Sally does seem to prefer females so men would need to give her some time and space until she feels comfortable.
The company of another dog / dogs. Currently she is in a foster home with three Greyhounds, and she does have small dog friends too. Sally is incredibly sociable with all the dogs she has met so far and really does learn from what they do and how they interact.
Humans that won’t rush her. She will need some time to settle in and feel safe.
Treats and plenty of them – although we’re still working on her taking treats from our hands.
To live somewhere quiet. We don’t think she would cope in a busy town or city. Motor bikes and tractors can be a little scary, but the more she sees them the less she now worries.
A sofa! She’s found it now, and rather likes it.
Sally is such a dear little dog, and given the time and patience she will soon flourish. She really is no trouble at all in the house and has been fantastic with house training. She has come a long way in such a short time already. She could live with a cat with the right introductions.
