TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
When Yeats was at our Watford Gap kennels, one of our volunteers, Neil took him to Sutton Park for his first ever outing into the big wide world and reported that he did really well.
Then Yeats moved to our Broadmarsh kennels where our volunteer, Donna reports:
“I’ve taken Yeats out a few times now for long walks and he is a total dream to walk, we went for a long walk down the park where he met lots of people with other dogs, he shows interest in them but doesn’t react in a negative way, more of a “I want to go play” kind of way.
A couple of (very playful) puppies ran up to him and he sniffed them but he didn’t show any aggression. He did however let the puppies know when he’d had enough of them running around him by giving them a little bark.
He walks lovely with no pulling and takes in all his surroundings with his ears up and his tail wagging,he doesn’t like to stand still for long and likes to just get on with his walk. He walks well through urban areas and passing traffic and noise don’t seem to faze him at all.
He walks well alongside my son who is 10 so older children would be better for him as he’s a really gentle boy.
Yeats comes into his own when he’s let off his lead in our play paddock. This boy loves to run and play! He chooses the toy he wants and takes great joy in throwing it up in the air and catching it. He loves you to throw his rope toy and will happily play for a long time and shows no aggression when you take it from him.
The most striking part of Yeats are those piercing brown eyes which are the most amazing I’ve ever seen. He’s a big soft boy who anyone would be lucky to have as part of their family.”
Another volunteer, Libbie took Yeats home for a visit and says:
“Yeats is one of the most perfect well behaved dogs I’ve had the pleasure to walk and have for the day.
He walks perfectly on the lead with no pulling. We came across various small breeds such as: a puppy pug, white and black fluffies and also staffies, which he perks his ears and only pulls slightly when near them. No barking or jumping out of him.
He was golden in the house. I tested him with my bird. He did start to become a little interested and when he did I walked him away with a looses lead and calling him and so he did.
Yeats absolutely loved watching the tele. Especially gossip girl 😂. We had unexpected visitors and he was brilliant with everyone.
Yeats has good recall (in the house) and listening skills. He pays attention and quickly learnt when I was calling him.
Overall he is an all round perfect greyhound with gorgoues eyes😍”
It doesn’t get much better than all that! Yeats will make a fabulous pet though he is unlikely to be cat friendly.
