It's so nice to finally slow down! I've been a busy girl. I started my racing career in Tucson in 2012, and ran 331 races. My last race was in October 2015 in Mexico. After that, I moved to a farm in Kansas and had puppies.
I thought I had to be fast when I was racing. That was nothing compared to chasing after speedy puppies!
I decided to retire and moved back to Tucson this October, four years after my first race here. I moved into a foster home as soon as I arrived and am living with another girl greyhound.
I like to follow her and my foster mom around. First, I'm not exactly sure what my job is now that I'm not a racer or mom. I'm watching the pet greyhound to figure that out. Second, I really enjoy their company.
Even after I have the pet job down, I think I'll want to follow my forever person everywhere!
Willow is a love bug. She follows me around, loves to be pet and gives kisses. She is a little shy, but opens up once she is comfortable with you. Willow follows by greyhound Sadie around and seems to enjoy adventures as long as Sadie is in the lead. I think Willow could live as an only dog once she gains confidence.
Willow is house trained using a dog door. She has been left alone for several hours with my greyhound, and hasn't shown any separation anxiety.
Willow rides well in the car, although she remains standing. Willow likes going for walks, but still pulls a bit on the lead. Occasionally, when she is very excited, she will jump. As a result, she may not be a good fit for very small children or anyone with balance issues.
Willow enjoys playing with toys, but her first love is people, followed by other dogs. She will be a great companion for someone who wants an affectionate hound.
