Denzel is a very handsome, friendly and confident black boy of approx 29" to the shoulder and 6 years of age.
Location: Currently in kennels in Suffolk. Denzel would love a foster home while he waits for his forever family. We are very stuck for foster homes right now with a lot of dogs in kennels, sucking up our finances, any help that you can give at all would be hugely appreciated.
Key Points: Vocal, confident, friendly, nice boy. Good in the car but very strong on the lead and so will need ongoing lead training and we would recommend that he wears a harness, clean in his kennel, OK around other dogs, 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. His coat is rather sad and dull at the moment but with ongoing TLC he will be as gorgeous as Denzel Washington!
~ In the Home ~
Denzel has never had the chance to be in a family of his own but keeps his kennel as clean as possible so it shouldn't take him too long to get the hang of everything with proper guidance.
~ 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.
~ 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 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. He can be homed anywhere in the UK provided we have a home checker available, but please note that you will be required to travel to Suffolk to meet and collect him.
~ Where Am I? ~
Denzel is in kennels in Suffolk at the moment. If anyone feels they could foster Denzel to help him on his journey to a forever home, please give us a call for an informal chat. It is an extremely rewarding experience and costs are covered by us.
~ Want To Adopt Me? ~
Denzel will be neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, deflead and wormed and a home check will be required as part of the adoption procedure.
If you would like to give Denzel a new home, please contact the rescue on 075 000 626 48 and ask for Bronwen or send an email using the form if available.
