Dash is a young male greyhound who suffered an ankle injury at the track and had to retire, but he is on the mend and looking for his forever home. Dash loves being petted and hugged, hanging out with people and other dogs, and he doesn’t really notice the cat. Hobbies include laying his head on laps for an ear scratch, figuring out Kong puzzles, playing with toys, patrolling the yard for squirrel activity and sleeping. He prsefers a relatively quiet home with a companion dog to help show him the ropes. His injury doesn’t slow him down much, but he does go on three legs often when he wants to run, and doesn’t like long flights of stairs. Crating is not a problem for Dash, he goes into his private space quite willingly, take meals there and can sleep there at night. If you are looking for a laid back but devoted fellow please give Dash a look.
