This week’s rescue pet, pictured above, is Oran, a sensitive but good-natured greyhound being cared for by Greyhound Gap.
Oran gets on well with other dogs, both big and small. Ideally he needs a cat-free home with other greyhounds preferably a steady female or females to help him with his confidence issues. His minders feel that he shows signs of soon coming around and his confidence will build quickly, however he is more scared of men than women. Any males in the house would need to be quite quiet and gentle and allow him to bond with them in his own time. Oran can be nervous of loud noises when out on a lead, so needs someone who understands greyhounds and their reactions.
A home with older teenage children would be best. Noisy younger ones may be too much for him.
Oran is vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms, microchipped and neutered. He is currently in the kennels in Stoke on Trent. In the first instance to offer Oran a home please fill in a pre adoption questionnaire: greyhoundgap.com/homing-a-adoption/pre-adoption-questionnaire
