Comments: Troy is a delight. He is a happy, playful boy once comfortable.
Troy is a wonderful boy - affectionate and very sweet, but he does have some insecurities. Troy is a broken leg dog and it has left him with some residual pain and sensitivity issues. His pain issues are well managed with daily meds. He has come a long way with the help of some wonderful folks at Crawford Canine Connection.
Troy is affectionate and a big time leaner, but doesn't like to be overwhelmed or overhandled. He will need an adoptive home who is dog savvy, patient, willing to go at Troy's pace and will continue his training using positive training methods. Troy needs to use a ramp to load and unload into/out of a vehicle and we are happy to provide that to his new family. We will provide 3 training sessions so he can continue to get acclimated in his new home with positive training methods.
Troy will need a quieter home with a fenced yard and no children. He would love a canine companion - preferably female, but he has done well with many male dogs as well (he is turned out with another male greyhound at the moment and does fine). He will need a home without cats.
The ideal home would be a local Woodinville area home. With a little patience, this boy will reward you ten fold!!! He has made HUGE strides and is just a love. Contact us for more information and to come and meet this wonderful boy.
