More about RUE

If you're looking for a new bestie, Rue is your man! He is an ex-racer who is looking to start his new life, experiencing the creature comforts of a loving home. He is playful with toys, enjoys a good run, and relaxing on a soft bed in the company of people.

Rue had not lived in a home setting before, but has settled in wonderfully with his foster carer. He has been completely house trained and his foster carer has has built up to leaving Rue alone for several hours. He will need a secure garden of his own to help with house training and give him the chance for zoomies! While on foster Rue has socialised with two young children and he proved to be the perfect gentleman, nice and calm and open to fusses.

Rue has been very friendly around dogs both on and offsite, but is also happy to do his own thing when around them, Rue has tried to play chase games with smaller dogs so would be best suited to socialising with dogs of a similar size and play style. As with most Ex racers, we are advising Rue is kept on lead and muzzled in public, this is something he is used to from his previous career. For a chance to have a good run or play with canine friends, it would be ideal for his new family to rent him some time in a secure field.

We are looking to rehome him with children over 8 years old who will know to be gentle with him, and a cat-free home is a must. Rue travels very well in a car and is ready for his next adventure!

Not had a greyhound before but interested to know more about the breed and why they make excellent companions? Check out this link to find out why they are known as couch potatoes!…
