Peroni! We absolutely ADORE this boy. Peroni is a 4 year old quiet and very gentle laid back but slightly nervous stunning greyhound boy.

Peroni landed with us here at Greyhound Gap recently and is currently kennelled with Blush who he has always been kennelled with whilst racing. He is the calm to her storm. Peroni is just the sweetest of boys. He has already been out and about with us on a street collection meeting and greeting and was a darling with the public and children. There were a lot of small dogs around on the day yapping and lunging towards him and he did get really upset and twitchy and jumpy but it was actually more we feel fear of them and the unknown than a prey reaction. Everytime he got a bit worried he would gently come and place his head into my lap, let me know and cuddle in until he felt sure enough again to go and see what was happening.

Peroni was retired from racing after he made it very clear he had had enough, he started to refuse to get onto the van bless him and is still a bit apprehensive of getting onto ours as he isn't sure where he is going but we are sure that will soon settle.

Although we feel Peroni would be fine as an only dog with someone around all or most of the time in the first instance during settling in we worry that due to his lack of confidence he may become to withdrawn and even quieter than he is. We feel a home with an already resident female may be better for him or even if someone was considering a pair for him to be rehomed together and alongside Blush. They literally do adore each other.

Peroni is NOT cat friendly and we feel due to his quietness he would be best placed into a home with children 10+ we feel he would struggle in to loud an environment

Peroni is vaccinated, kc vaccinated, de flead, de wormed, microchipped and will soon be neutered.

Peroni is currently in Stoke on Trent and for anyone wishing to adopt him please fill in the pre adoption questionnaire below in the first instance. Anyone wishing to offer him a home would need to be willing to travel to meet him with any resident dogs

If you would like to give Peroni a new home, please contact the rescue on Rose Marie on 01256 771819 (9am - 9pm) and ask for Rose Marie or send an email using the form if available.
