ADOPTION PENDING- Whippets name is – Ra (Like the Egyptian sun god)
Ra is a handsome 2 year old brindle male. He will be an active boy who loves to run and play and needs good exercise. Ra does well with other dogs or whippets and would love a confidant dog friend to pal around with. He is a snuggler and wants to be near his family on the couch and bed. This boy requires LOTS and LOTS of attention. He is a bit of an attention hog. He walks well on the leash.
Required for Ra’s adoption
– 6’ fenced yard (no apartments!)
– Owner that works from home or is left alone no longer then 3-4 hrs
– Dog door preferred but can be left in a sectioned off area of the house while owner is away.
– No DOG CRATE! Does terrible crated. This also needs to be a consideration of you leaving town. You will need a dog sitter or family friend to watch him.
– Active home with children 10+ years of age. Young children make him too nervous and he runs away.
– Ra is SCARED of cats!!! A home with no cats or gentle cats that ignore dogs is needed.
– Ra does have some low-level anxiety that needs to be worked with. Needs a gentle trainer that is patient that can introduce him to things that make him anxious.
