Our darling long Buoy is casting his net out to look for a forever home! Buoy is a gorgeous, goofy brindle beauty with a black snoot and an overbite. Our gentle giant is playful, loveable and a bit of a smooch too.
Buoy is a shadow-snoot and you’ll often find him right under your feet, especially if you’re doing something that he’s decided he must be involved in. Like most greyhounds, Buoy thrives on a water-tight routine – he enjoys a solid schedule of sleep, walkies, meals and snacks.
When people visit, Buoy is certain that they’ve come to visit him and he’s sure to lap up any love and a scritch or two. Buoy is a social butterfly when it comes to humans, so much so that when he’s out on his walk, he’ll often get excited when he spots a human who most definitely needs to pat him.
Walks are the bee’s knees for Buoy, who will do happy hops and sometimes a cheeky jump when the lead comes out. He enjoys a twice daily stretch of the legs for 30-45 minutes. He’s still working on his confidence with loud street noises and other animals, but his greyhound foster sister has helped enormously to provide a wellbeing buffer for their daily sniffari’s.
During his time as a Gumtree Greys foster, his confidence has doubled, but he’ll still require an owner who can be his cheerleader and guide him through gentle, calm, and positive introductions with other animals and busy environments.
Buoy enjoys short burst zoomies, so a yard would be ideal. When he’s not zooming, he’ll happily flop down for a long nap. He enjoys napping wherever you are! Buoy’s dream home looks like this: humans who are home more often than not and a resident large dog companion to show him the ropes.
Our good Buoy is a real catch and he can’t wait to meet you!
