SOOTY WENT TO THE PARK WITH ALEX B. IN JUNE 2018. THIS IS WHAT ALEX SAID ABOUT SOOTY:
Sooty is a dream hound. She did not put a paw wrong during our walk in the park. She shot straight into my car and was so excited to be going out that she gave out little whines of excitement. When she arrived at the park she did not pull on her lead at all and was well behaved towards the other greyhounds with her, lots of sniffs were exchanged but no growls at all. (She has not been spayed yet.)
She is an extremely affectionate girl, she will kiss strangers and lean on them for a fuss. She even went up to a little boy and gave him a kiss. She wanted to explore everything and was fascinated by the wildlife we saw, such as ducks and swans, but did not pull or show any aggressive instincts towards them.
Upon meeting other breeds she was a superb ambassador for the breed, she was even a little worried by large dogs so she simply kept her distance or ignored them. With small or very small dogs she would go up to them, give them a sniff and then continue her walk. She is a lovely lovely hound and would be ideal for a family.
What a good girl!
