Pearl came in to WARS as an ex racer. She is a beautiful blank and white girl loves affection from people and other dogs. She is still a very active dog and wants to go go go. She would make an amazing companion for someone who likes to go on long walks and travel. Although she is a very active, after her walk she would love to chill on a bed for an afternoon nap, or a cuddle.
Her best feature is definitely her incredibly long tail. She never stops wagging it!
She is an active girl, but does also love chilling in a bed, an afternoon nap, or a cuddle.
Even though she hasn’t lived in a home before, she is working really hard on toilet training and learning basic manners.
Pearl needs a home that understands greyhounds are racing animals and coming into a home environment is very different, she will be very energetic, she knows little basic training, is not yet house trained and has very little to no house manners.
She would like a fully enclosed garden to sunbathe in if possible. She is a typical greyhound where she will likely have an outburst of energy and then sleep on the sofa or in front of the fireplace for the rest of the day. However, she will take some time to transition into a pet, as she has only ever lived in kennels.
Pearl is a very needy dog and will really struggle being left at first. Therefore, she needs a home where her new owner will be home the majority of the time.
Due to her size, shyness and power we are looking for a home with children 14+ or adult only.
Pearl is quite strong on the lead and doesn’t yet know that she can’t always go running off. There are lovely moments where she can walk to heel, however she will need an owner who is physically able to hold her if she were to use all of her powerful legs.
She loves going out on walks, plodding along beside you, sniffing the air.
