Roy (homed)

Big handsome Roy is sweet and affectionate and gentle as they come. He’s just 3 years old and is cheeky like a little puppy!

His holiday foster carer writes:

“This is Roy – a lovely 3 year old  black and white greyhound ( with half a tail!)

He has been living with  us for the last 3 weeks as gorgeous foster guest.

He is fun, loves to play and is a real softie.  The toys you see in someof the photos were collected from around the house, including a door stop – he takes them to a bed and lays with them!

He has fitted in well with my dogs – a jack Russell, a Terrier cross and our own Grey hound Blue boy- you can see him using Blue Boy as a pillow.

Roy waits in line for his hugs and he really does love his hugs, he is always the first to greet us when we come home.

They all eat together, walk together, share bones together .  He has taken to sleeping next to my bed at night and is vocal when he stretches!

He really does deserve a loving home as he has huge amounts of love to give to you.”


A kennel volunteer said “Roy is a very happy and playful boy. He has a little bit of a bark – unlike most greyhounds but he is just an attention seeker and this can easily be trained. He responded well to ignoring the bad behaviour and rewarding the good. He really is just one big puppy so will suit an active household who will have the time to put in some basic obedience training. Roy loved his goofy zoomies but came straight in for a cuddle when he was done. A gorgeous greyhound just waiting patiently for his home.”

Roy is:

* 3 years old (dob June 2010)

    I can’t understand why Roy, Bobby and Lucky are still in kennels. They are the sweetest kids.
    Roy loves a cuddle and is very affectionate.

    Roy and lucky are recuperating at home with us, beautiful dogs but I have to foster them or adopt before August as our son has treated us to a visit to Singapore for our fiftieth wedding anniversary, my goodness how time flies. Nora I am old enough to be your grandmother!

    Roy is just a big puppy but loves his time on the couch, loves to cuddle and give kisses. He is a Velcro dog and mixes well with our lot including Susie as she is a full on dog being a boxer cross!!!!!! Not cat friendly though. Good luck big boy with getting a loving home, there is always a home for a every dog, just have to wait a while I guess but it will come along.
