A big lap dog
Large Male Greyhound Dog
Jonty thinks he is a lap dog. He doesn’t care how ‘big’ everyone says he is. He loves sitting on laps and will not let his size get into the way! You will never be short of love and cuddles when Jonty is around.
One of Jonty’s favourite places is the couch, because it means he can get as close to his humans as possible. But Jonty’s search for attention does not stop at the couch. He will look for affection everywhere he goes, often stopping mid walk in front of strangers and refusing to leave until he is patted. This behaviour is a far cry from when he first arrived at Gumtree Greys as a slightly scared, anxious boy who wasn’t confident at all.
Since landing in foster care, Jonty has come in leaps and bounds. He finds comfort in being around people and quickly warms to those who show him love. He is still learning to climb stairs but with practice we think he will be able to master them pretty soon! He requires a little extra soothing when settling at night and is still learning to not wake his humans up too early. He likes to be a little alarm clock and get his first cuddle of the day as soon as possible.
We think Jonty might like another large dog for company in his new home as he can get anxious when left alone by himself. He will suit an active family who will take him for two decent walks a day can spend lots of quality time with this affectionate boy.
Jonty is not cat friendly. No small dog applications please.
