Kennel 4 - Jay
‘Jay’ is a petite boy greyhound with a cheeky, greying face which makes him look a little older than his years. He adores people and also adores food! It is usually Jay you can hear calling loudly for his breakfast first thing and shouting to be first out on a walk.
He is a very people orientated boy who is confident and exceptionally loving. He can often suddenly catch you unawares and place his paws on your shoulders and gaze at you for a fuss! Not many people could resist a cuddle with Jay.
Initially very excited at the sight of small breeds up the lane by the kennels and very strong on the lead, in the sense of a sudden unexpected lunge – these are both factors that can put potential homers off a hound. However, he is gradually improving and now that we can facilitate park visits for a volunteer to book out for a hound, he can socialise ,more readily to help him get used to the small breeds that can over excite and upset him.
It takes time and patience, but we feel Jay will get there with confidence and consistency from a potential owner.
Meanwhile, we will care for Jay as best we can and encourage wider, regular socialisation beyond the kennels, so that he can start to enjoy his walks more and progress towards being a hound who enjoys being out and about and can relax more around other breeds. And returning for a chicken’s foot treat!
Jay is lovely to look after. His kennel is always immaculate and he is good walking with both male and female hounds on walks. A real sweetheart and a leaner, Jay is a great favourite amongst our staff and volunteer walkers.
