Please meet Sammy
, our featured hound of the week! Sammy is a big, beautiful 10½-year-old senior boy.
From Sammy's Foster Mom:
It took Sammy about 2 weeks to leave his crate when I first got him...but now he has discovered the comforts of the dog pillows in the bedroom. He is one, big lovable hound who enjoys his naps. He also will readily romp in the backyard with my other greys. He has a very calm temperament unless he sees a cat or a small dog which is a potential chasing opportunity.
Sammy is an older dog who likes to play like a young one and occasionally his big back legs don't quite keep up with his energy at the front. He is a huggable hound who just wants a forever home and who will give his forever family a great big boy to love!
Seniors still have lots of love to give! Come meet Sammy soon.
NEWS YOU CAN USE
Does your greyhound pull like a sled dog on walks? There are several good products that can help teach your dog to walk calmly at your side, or reduce the strain on those long necks if they're getting a little older.
Premier and Wiggles, Wags, and Whiskers both have good no-pull harnesses that utilize a martingale-style loop on the harness. And Premier also offers a head collar which fits over the nose and prevents pulling by redirecting the head.
