Gentle and cuddly
Large Male Greyhound Dog
Ernie is an incredibly loving boy who just adores every person he meets. Whilst he has learnt a few things in his foster home, like how to go upstairs, sleep by himself and not to go on the couch, Ernie hasn’t learnt how big and long he is, or how much room he takes up.
Ernie has lots of energy for walks and isn’t afraid to let you know when he thinks it’s time to go. He enjoys longer walks in the morning and afternoon (around 40 minutes each) and a quick walk to knock him out at bed-time.
At roughly 40kg, Ernie can be quite pushy and enthusiastic when it is walk time. Whilst he is usually quite gentle, he will need a forever human who can confidently hold his lead. Ernie is quite vocal for a greyhound, and uses his voice to let you know he’s hungry or needs a walk. When he wants your attention, his awareness of personal space also goes out the window.
Ernie is still learning kitchen boundaries and how to stay out of the way when his humans are cooking. He will need a forever home that is vigilant with not leaving food within his reach and able to resist his begging for human food.
Ernie would enjoy being an only dog. He has not spent much more than 2 hours alone and whilst he paced and whined for a little bit, he eventually went to lay on his bed and snooze.
Other dogs can be a bit overwhelming for him and he is still learning how to react to them on walks, as he will growl or whine, particularly when the other dog is very excited to see him. Ernie is definitely not a fan of cats s no cat or small dog applications please.
