Denzel is a very handsome, friendly and confident black boy of approx 29" to the shoulder and 10 years of age.
Location: Currently in a foster home in Norfolk.
Key Points: Confident, friendly, very cuddly, nice boy. Good in the car but can be strong on the lead and so will need ongoing lead training and we would recommend that he wears a harness, clean in the house, fine around other greyhounds, takes treats gently
~ Personality ~
Denzel is a big, bouncy boy who is so excited at his second chance at life he just wants to shout it to the rooftops! This gorgeous lad is now looking for a home that wants a big bundle of love for a real cuddle monster. He can be nervous of loud voices and just drops to the floor. All he wants to do is cuddle and be close to you. His coat is getting much better now and with ongoing TLC he will soon be as gorgeous as Denzel Washington!
~ In the Home ~
Denzel has just moved into a foster home and is settling in and learning the house rules very well.
~ Other Animals ~
Denzel is really well behaved around other greyhounds but hasn't met any small dogs yet so care must be taken with introductions. He is currently sharing his foster home with Magee, another of our boys waiting for his forever people to find him, and they get along very well.
~ Out and About ~
Denzel travels well in a car but is very strong on a lead and will need ongoing lead training and to wear a non-pull harness for extra control. He loves his walks though and we think with him simply getting more exercise he will start to pull less.
~ Greyhounds as Pets ~
In general Greyhounds are calm, mannerly dogs that are well used to being handled. They can fit very well in to a wide range of different lifestyles and usually adjust to the home life very quickly. Their soft, easy going nature often makes them ideal to live in a family environment, while their love of lazing around and low exercise requirements can make them perfect for the retired. Greyhounds also don’t shed as much as other more popular dog breeds and this can make them suitable to live with allergy sufferers.
~ Where Can I Live? ~
Denzel would fit into most family environments and would like a quiet family that will help him with his ongoing training and socialisation. Please bear in mind though that he is a big, strong bouncy boy! He will need someone home most of the time to help him settle into home life. Please be aware that we do not home dogs to families with children under 8 years of age.
~ Where Am I? ~
Denzel is in a foster home in Norfolk at the moment.
~ Want To Adopt Me? ~
