Greyhound Friends, Inc., Saddle Hill Rd., is seeking a forever home for several greyhounds.
Greyhounds are truly couch potatoes. A good run a day, some regular walking and an occasional romp with a ball, and they'll sleep the rest of the day away. They are also very loyal and attach quickly to their humans often choosing to lean against you whenever standing still.
This week's greyhound is Charlie.
"Charlie is a very shy boy," said greyhound advocate, Leslie Mann. "Because of this he needs to be walked on a no pull harness or a spook harness. Charlie has no tail because it was severely damaged when he was found and had to be amputated."
Despite his difficult past, Charlie is a very sweet boy who will open up with a little time.
"He just needs a lot of love and understanding," Mann said. "Once he gets to know you he becomes a very loving and playful boy. Charlie loves to be touched and groomed and he's a big leaner. He will be a devoted companion to his person or family."
Charlie is crate trained and asks to go out when needed. He does not do well with large dogs he doesn't know, but has lived with other dogs and done quite well. The key is to introduce them slowly.
To fall in love is free, but to take Charlie home the cost is $250. This includes a leash, collar, some food and the first round of shots and paperwork.
Stop by Greyhound Friends Inc between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. to meet Charlie or call 508-435-5969.
