Ziggy is a retired racing Greyhound.
Ziggy never raced. He was released to GPA Northwest when he was a puppy because he was too small to compete. He is a very loving dog but doesn't know he is a racing Greyhound, he just thinks he's a dog.
Ziggy developed anxiety over time and has been diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder, which means he is easily frightened by things like thunder and other loud noises. He has been on anti-anxiety medication for several weeks now and is doing great. He no longer gets anxious or afraid when he hears loud noises or thunder. He is a sensitive little guy and needs a home that is mostly quiet where he can just be a loved companion and play in his yard.
Greyhounds are a gentle, sensitive breed. They have good temperaments and make ideal house pets because they love being near people, they are clean, quiet, undemanding, and take up a small amount of space (in spite of their size). Greyhounds actually need a small amount of exercise relative to other dog breeds. Most Greyhounds can be found lying around the house napping!
