|Description:||Redwing is a big sweet guy who loves attention. He's
a little timid at first, but he bonds quickly,
particularly with men. He would love anyone, male or
female, who loved him back. He loves to snuggle and lean
on people he likes - a velcro dog in the making. He is
very intelligent, learning to go up and down stairs on
his first try and getting the house rules down pat in
just a day or two. Within a couple of days he learned
which of the 7 dog bowls was his and will go to it and
wait his turn to be fed. His personality is blossoming
fast now, and there's a bit of a rascal in there. He's a
counter surfer extraordinaire (we're working on that),
but not a trouble-maker. He's just curious and playful.
He loves squeaky toys and chew toys, and is getting
interested in the lure pole and chasing a ball. When he
first arrived, he tested his pack standing, then quietly
accepted his position as non-alpha. Gets along fine with
other Greyhounds and has ignored our two small dogs since
the introductory sniffing.
He's calm and relaxed, already occasionally lying in the "dead cockroach" position, and beginning to "talk" a little. He doesn't seem bothered by thunder storms. His new family should probably expect a little separation anxiety at first, but here he has only shown it by crying a little when John leaves the house.
Redwing has one of the most expressive faces we've ever seen, and his eyes show his appreciation for any affection he's given. He'll make a fine addition to some nice family and he's ready to start loving them now. This boy needs to find his family before we get too attached to him!
