Please meet the wonderful Toddy and what a handsome gent he is! Toddy is an 11 year old Greyhound boy who never raced but was kept by his racing owner up until now. He is a lovely, blue boy with white legs and heavy peppering all down his face and chest. In short, he’s gorgeous!
Toddy never showed an interest in all that racing business, but his personality is so lovable that his previous owner kept him in his racing kennels for 11 years. Kerry Greyhounds UK has offered to help find Toddy a loving, warm sofa to retire to.
Five minutes are all you need to spend with this boy to fall completely in love with him! Toddy has been treated well throughout his 11 years, and it shows in his larger-than-life character. He is not afraid to show his enthusiasm for life, the world and everyone in it! Despite his age, Toddy is very perky and happy and literally wants to say hi to the entire world. He’s just a gorgeous, happy-go-lucky lad who is happy with absolutely any form of affection, kindness and love passing his way.
Toddy is still very spritely and loves his walks. He will greet everyone and everything with a waggy tail, and especially loves meeting the older ladies! He relishes the company of other dogs and will lean into you for a really great cuddle.
Toddy is a very fit and healthy chappie. His only complaints were very bad teeth, of which an amazing 15 had to be removed, and a lump on his shoulder which has now also been removed. Toddy has been given a full health check by a vet and given the all clear.
Toddy is now in a foster home in Norfolk, where he is experiencing the comforts of a home life for the very first time in his life. He is completely blown away by the concept of sofas and duvets! He is a lovely boy who is easy to have, needs very, very little to be content, and wants to be loved and made comfortable for his remaining years. Toddy yearns to find the good in life and enjoy himself, so he is a very easy boy to keep happy.
Toddy is ace with other dogs and just loves his other greyhounds, but is also fine with non-hounds, including small dogs. He is extremely relaxed and mannerly around other dogs. Considering his age, Toddy shouldn’t be homed with a very young or boisterous dog who will harass him to play, but he would get on splendidly with any other middle-aged or older dog of any size, and would be great company to have.
Toddy is just super on the lead and is very attentive to the direction you want to go. He doesn’t pull and is very happy to just plod along, enjoying the scenery. Toddy never raced and showed no interest in chasing, so he might be suitable to live with a cat. This has not yet been tested, however.
Toddy is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, flea and worm treated.
Toddy would love to find his forever sofa as soon as possible so that he can relax, settle, and enjoy himself with the minimum amount of upheaval.
