I am a friendly guy with a pretty quiet demeanor. However, I'm a youngster and I do enjoy playing.
It's best if I have a home with no kitties.
King is a sweetie who loves to have his head and neck scratched first thing in the morning. He is very cuddly even when I'm half asleep. He needs a little encouragement to go outside if it's raining, but has learned that breakfast comes a half hour after that, so he's connecting the dots as time goes on.
King has met big dogs and small, and gets along with everyone, (Bichon Frise, Labs, mixed breeds) Of course he likes meeting other greys the best. He shares toys but seems to like whichever one the other dog has. Squeaky toys are his favorite, He tosses the toy in the air, catches it and jumps on it if I get the toy and toss it a few feet, then makes it squeak.
King is learning how to walk on wood floors - some days are better than others, but if another dog is getting snacks, wood floors are just fine. Funny how that works!
King is super mellow - which says a lot when all greyhounds are pretty easy going. He is still learning about life outside the track, and did pull the leash when he saw a squirrel at the park. Usually I walk faster than he does though...very easy on the leash.
King does have a stubborn streak... it helps to talk quietly with him, and encourage, but if I need to get him in or out of a minivan, I sometimes have to help by lifting his back end up to the vehicle.

A fenced yard is required to adopt me.
