Heather is a sweet, soft, baby dog. She loves being with people and is happiest when she is right by your side. She is an amazing walker…heels like no other! She doesn’t love really long walks, she slows down after awhile, but so do we! She does not care for her kennel and will whine and sometimes bark on and off throughout the night if she has to stay in it. We have tried her in a gated area on a dogbed, and that is better, but ultimately we believe she would be happiest in a bedroom with her people. She gets along with her foster greyhound brothers and her foster people wonderfully. She sometimes is a bit testy when laying down on her bed, giving a little growl if bothered when she wants to be alone, but her space issues are minimal. She loves being petted and gives love looks and a lone kiss every once in awhile. She lets me pull her up onto my lap to show her off on my zoom sessions and is very tolerant and chill about being manipulated into place. She likes to look out the window and will persistently jump up on the couch in order to see, but she doesn’t try to lie down it is just the only way she can see what is going on. She does not have any dominance issues with our 3 foster greys and once, when on a walk we were charged by a lab/pit mix that broke his rope leash and literally ran into her and all she did was back up a step, hold her ground and give him a puzzled look. She did have her muzzle on, but we were surprised she really wasn’t phased. She does seem to enjoy the other greyhounds, so she might be happiest with a friend, but she doesn’t seem to need them, so she would likely be fine as an only dog too. There are six of us and 4 dogs home during COVID, it is hard to say how she’ll be in a kennel in an empty house
