Matty certainly is living up to his racing name, Teddy Bear Matty, he loves his cuddles, and was very happy with attention from young humans as we were getting to know him. He walks well and is quite a calm boy. He was born on 24th September, 2015.
Update 20/3/20 Matty had a trip around the village and to the local garden centre, cafe and animal feed suppliers. He is still amazed at the sight of ‘non greyhounds’ but has been spending weekends with his favoutite Volunteer and is definetly getting better. He is not in the least bit aggressive towards them he is just overcome with a mixture of fear and excitement, he really wants to make friends with them but isn’t quite sure how to go about it. He is booked to go to some socialisation classes where we believe he will flourish.
Update 27/03/20 Like many of us Matty’s favourite Volunteer Fiona has been asked to work from home. That turned out to be a good thing for Matty because instead of just a sleepover Matty now has an extended holiday with Fiona. She will learn lots about Matty while he is there and that will help no end when it comes to matching him with his forever family.
Update 29/9 – Matty joined us for a walk at Hollesley – he was very keen to work out what the funny shaped dogs were, and obviously wanted to be in front of the walk, but he eventually calmed down and enjoyed his trip to the pub afterwards.
All greyhounds are neutered, have had their teeth cleaned and are inoculated. They each leave us with a new coat, collar and lead, muzzle and their worming and flea treatments up to date.. They are all microchipped, details are transferred to the new owner. They also have four weeks free Petplan insurance.
