Brindle greyhound lovers should continue reading: Angie is a great representative of this breed and has all the qualities to make you fall in love with her and end up taking over your sofa very soon.
Angie was found roaming free. We found the owner, but he didn’t want Angie back and turned her over to the animal shelter. The reasons why he didn’t want her back we neither know nor want to know. Someone who doesn’t appreciate their dog shouldn’t have one, and Angie deserves to find one that truly loves her.
When you first meet her, Angie is a bit reserved and likes to sniff you out first. As soon as she realizes that new people are good, she wants to be petted and enjoys it a lot. At the animal shelter, she has already gotten used to the keepers she knows and is very happy when she sees them and when they approach her.
Angie knows how to walk in a very relaxed way on the leash and drives as if she had done it all her life. At the shelter, Angie has already been socialized with several males during the day and gets along well with them. However, it has not yet been permanently integrated into a dog pack. Angie is usually flexible and rather easygoing, but she’d rather relax on a couch or a comfy dog bed in her own home than here.
Although Angie is calm, due to her breed, it is to be expected that she has a hunting instinct when running free. We don’t know if it hunted successfully in the past or not and maybe that’s why they wouldn’t want it anymore, but the hunting instinct is certainly very ingrained and should not be underestimated.
It would be a dream for Angie to be able to run free in her new home because that is essential for a happy greyhound. It requires a well-fenced area that Angie can use. For Angie, we would like to find a family who have experience with greyhounds or have discussed the breed and its needs in detail. Surely Angie wouldn’t be averse to sharing her new home with another friendly, easy-going greyhound. However, those who love greyhounds know a lot about this: One is never enough. What Angie wouldn’t like to have cats around, though.
If you still have space on the sofa or if you already have an XXL bed ready, please contact us. We would be very happy if Angie could find her people soon and not have to waste any more time without being loved.Adoption costs for dogs : ADULT 180€ / PUPPY 120€ All animals available for adoption have a microchip and passport. They have been tested for common diseases (Leishmania for dogs, FeLV and FIV for cats). Adult animals are fully vaccinated and castrated.
* Until complete adaptation, adult supervision with small children is essential.
** This means we have tested the dog with cats in the shelter and has shown no reactive behaviour, but this does not guarantee 100% compatibility with cats. Therefore, we always advise that cats and dogs are together only under surveillance.
