Philip is such a lovely boy who just hasn’t found his right person yet but we know there is someone out there for him.
He comes across as a big, strong bruiser of a dog but underneath is very insecure and needs help building his confidence.
He was in two homes for short periods of time but unfortunately they didn’t work out for him. The first one was a bit of a long shot but the chap really wanted to try as Philip is such a lovely boy.
We thought he needed to be with another greyhound and we still think this is the case but the greyhound in the second home was just a bit overwhelmed by him .
Here is what we know about him:
-he needs a house with a garden where he can go outside and explore and go zoomies. He loves to play, play play. Robust toys are a must!
-He struggled being on his own so we are looking for a home with someone around much of the time and he would be over the moon if he were allowed to sleep in your bedroom.
-He is good with other dogs but in the home he wants to be the centre of attention so the other dog needs to be a calm and patient sort.
-he loves cheese which is a good training treat for him. He’s usually first in the queue of any treats, snacks, or cuddles. He’s a super quick learner.
-He gets overwhelmed by the outside world and can freeze on his walks. He does walk much better when walking with another dog. You can’t be in a rush when walking Phillip – he wants to sniff EVERYTHING though walking home is quicker as he’s been, there and done that.
-he is toilet trained and had even started asking to go out last thing at night.
– he would thrive in a home where there are routines and boundaries so he knows where he is this will help him feel more secure.
He’s a lovely lad but may be too strong for people with children. He is so affectionate and loves human interaction, any opportunity that he is given he will hug, kiss and play.
Phillip has so much to give but needs an experienced sighthound owner who can help him be the wonderful dog that we know he can be.
We would consider a foster home for Phillip with someone who is able to help him achieve his potential ready for a forever family – third time lucky?
