DeDee just retired to AFG after 148 races and after graduating from The Greyhound Inmate Experience! She has recently been returned through no fault of her own. DeDee has decided that her next home will have to have another canine present. DeDee is on the hunt for the best family..is that you?
Dee was a bit of a handful when she first came into our house, but over time she’s settled right in and is doing wonderful in our pack. Being with her people is what matters most to her. Always a shadow, you’ll never be alone. She has a big heart and think she would do wonderful with a family (the bigger the better!). DeDee does enjoy children when out at meet and greets and would do well in a home with respectful active children. Spunky is the best way to describe her. When she’s out and about she can come off as being a bit aloof. Dee gets caught up watching all the things going on around her. That being said she is always happy to go with you and explore new places. She has no fear of new places or things…except the shiny floors at the pet store. She eventually will get over the initial fear and walk on the floors. Dee was in a home for a short time, but unfortunately had to be returned because, as we discovered after the fact, she does need to have another dog to keep her company. In our house we never experienced any separation issues, but she was always surrounded by other hounds. She crates wonderfully and has no problems going into her crate at all. When you get home she is quite happy to vocalize her pleasure at your return, …but she’s happy! Other than thunderstorms nothing else seems to really phase her. Besides being absolutely gorgeous she truly has a big heart and wants to do nothing more than love her humans. She will need somebody that can reign her in from time to time, because given the chance she can easily try to rule the roost. It’s easy to correct her and she will learn, but it might take a bit of patience in the beginning as she gets used to her new surroundings.
Dee has been a lot of fun to have around and has left a big impression on our hearts. We’ll definitely be sad to see her go, but it will also be great to finally find her forever family.
