Bounder has been at our house for two days now and we are happy to say that he is doing really well. Bounder is a pretty laid back hound and in fact, he is a little timid so far. He needs a little time to get to know the people around him, and plenty of TLC, before he will fully come out of his shell. He is warming up to us now and is learning how nice it is to be petted all the time. He is learning that there is nothing for him to fear and that it will all be good from here on out. A dog on the timid side can be a great thing for an adoptive family. He will start out a little shy and grow into the family, and along the way will be nothing but respectful and pleasant. For example, he has slept the past two nights in our room with us and our hounds. He slept quietly in the corner and didn't make a sound either night. It doesn't get any easier then that for us. He gets along beautifully with our hounds and he has the full run of the house because we know he won't damage anything. He will be great for a family that wants a beautiful, respectful, and friendly hound. He won't jump on you or your guests either, making him a perfect dog to show your friends how great greyhounds really are. Your friends will ask you how much time and money you spent on obedience classes. You'll tell them "None. He just came off the track, and that's the way he is." They won't believe you and they will think you are the Dog Whisperer. If you would like to meet Bounder and be the Dog Whisperer, please contact Denise Davis.
