Charity just retired to AFG after 111 races! She is a new retiree we are still learning about. Could Charity be the hound for you??
Charity is a very loving, snuggly girl who likes to not only be near her people, but literally touching them if she can. She is the very definition of a velcro dog. When I, her foster mom, is working in the kitchen at the sink or getting ready in the bathroom in the morning, she likes to be right there leaning against the back of my legs or laying on a rug near me. If I sit on the floor, she will also lean right on me to be petted. However, she is not overly clingy or attention seeking and will lay quietly on a dog bed while we are watching TV, reading, etc. She gets along well with the other female and male greyhounds in our home. It is not clear how she would do as an only dog, but I suspect she may do better living with another dog. She seems to be a bit stubborn at times, not always responding right away when you ask her to get up or to move and may need a firmer tone and clap of the hands to get her to do so. We praise her and pet her when she does follow what is requested of her to reinforce the behavior we want her to do and to also build her confidence. She does not seem overly submissive and is not dominant. Charity enjoys playing with toys and is a very happy girl who’s tail is often wagging. She has a very sweet personality. She initially would bark and become overly excited when around other dog breeds, especially smaller dogs at meet and greets. She has improved greatly in this capacity and is much calmer and less reactive, but will continue to need positive reinforcement of this. She recently spent some time in a home with a beagle and did very well.
Charity really is a fun, happy girl! She has medium energy and is up for playing and running around in the yard and picking up a toy here and there, but she is generally quite laid back in the house and is all about just being present with the other humans especially in the house. She will be a wonderful addition to a home likely with another dog, free of cats and young children.
