Beau is recently retired from racing and is 3 1/2 years old. His small dog and cat status is unknown.
I’m a tall, friendly hound called Beau. My coat is sable brindle and, like Tulsa, I’m a long-legged, lean, former racing machine. Now I’m free to go with you on long walks, and sit on the patio swing while you read The Tucson Weekly. I’m thinkin’ you might sneak me a treat or two while my head rests on your knee! I’m gonna ace ‘paw camp’ and be ready real soon for my new family – you know you want me!
Beau is a handsome Alpha hound who is living with four other greyhounds, two of which are also foster dogs. In public, Beau is the perfect man, even though he sometimes announces directions to others at home. He loves all the attention lavished on him by humans. And, did I mention that this dude is gorgeous? Mohawk and all. Beau is an independent dog that loves to nuzzle under the blankets to find his foster’s feet at bedtime. I speculate that Beau would do best as an only dog in a home where his people are around a lot of the time and he can enjoy the title of “Lord of the Manor.”
The doggie door was a no brainer; Beau had it down PDQ, so no accidents in the home. His foster mom does not believe in crating and Beau’s behavior in the home certainly doesn’t warrant such confinement. Although fearless of loud or unusual noises, Beau will retreat from the room when the vacuum is on. It may be that he doesn’t want to be asked to clean. This greyhound is not averse to good nutritious food, but he does loose it if he has to ride very far in the van. Best to not feed him or give him treats prior to transporting. However, this may change once he feels secure, accepted, adored, and acclimated in a permanent home. Beau has a healthy appetite, walks well on a leash and acquiesces when restrained should he decide to chase after a Jackrabbit on a walk. Not hard to handle, just so new off the track and from surgery that he requires it.
Beau needs an adopter that is strong, who will teach him discipline with a gentle and loving hand, and someone that Beau can respect. He is a wonderful dog, and will make the connection with the right person and become your loving companion. Initially he will need some obedience training, but the rewards will be astronomical. Beau will adore his adopter, and the adopter will cherish Beau ‘cause he’s one of a kind.
