Nelson is a very handsome and friendly 7 year old ex racing greyhound who is now looking forward to life as a much loved member of a family. He retired from racing 4 years ago, but has never known life in a home, so is looking for someone who can help him adjust in his own time.
Nelson was born with no sight in his right eye, but navigates well, although is clearly happier when things are on his left ‘good’ side. He is an enthusiastic boy, who welcomes you with gusto and enjoys exploring his surroundings – he walks very nicely on the lead. He also enjoys meeting new dogs, and walks very nicely with them, he is a very polite young man! He could live with another well adjusted, older greyhound (or other medium to large breed) who could show him “how things are done around here”!
Nelson would like a quiet home in a more rural area, where he can chill out and learn to live as a family pet. An adult only home, or even one with older children will give him the chance to settle at his own pace, and ensure he isn’t startled unnecessarily due to his sight issues.
Nelson has really beaten the odds, and now deserves lots of love and home comforts that a new family can give him. Could you be his special someone, the rewards for taking on this lovely, happy boy with the MASSIVE smile will be well worth it!
