Comments: Returned from first adoptive home because of cat attack, though I don't think he was directly involved. Very sweet and friendly after very short (just minutes) initial shyness. Currently in foster home with 8 other Greyhounds and 2 small dogs, and doing fine, though he is a bit timid with dogs in large groups. If he doesn't test cat-safe, he possibly could be made that way with work, but I would probably recommend a cat-free environment for this dog. Also should NOT be an only dog unless he has a human who is with him all the time. He's gentle and affectionate (a real velcro pup), and VERY well behaved for a puppy his age. Perfect for someone who wants the usual male quietness in a smaller package. However, don't let Nate's meek exterior fool you, there is a little bit of a nut lurking in there. It's hard to pin down, but there's something special about this little guy and he'll worm his way into your heart in no time flat.
