Jimmy

Jimmy

  • Jimmy is a 5 year old greyhound who is currently kennelled at Greyhound Gap in Stoke on Trent.
  • Jimmy came from a horrendous welfare situation within the racing industry and has been raced. His life before coming to rescue was not a good one sadly. Here is what Lisa from Gap has to say about Jimmy:
  • We all love Jimmy to bits but he is quite a insecure dog for a greyhound and sometimes his worries get the best of him and when you combine that with a prey drive that can get a little bit complicated for him when dealing with the stuff the outside world throws at him.
  • As far as greyhounds go Jimmy is a bit special and out there as his favourite thing to do is to play chasing a ball and he will actually retrieve it.
  • Out and about on walks he ignores other dogs in the main but again this is more shutting down than displaying a lack of prey drive.
  • We find without other dogs to walk with he can get upset and loose confidence so Jimmy needs a greyhound experienced home with a calmer laid back female greyhound in.
  • A home that will understand his prey drive and to take precautions outside and in the garden etc 
  • We do feel Jimmy would settle as an only dog also however our worry there would be his reluctance to walk without another dog and the fact he would massively loose confidence.
  • Jimmy is not small furry friendly and is walked leashed and muzzled.
  • Although he has been fine with the children he meets, due to his insecurities we feel he would be best in a home with teenage children and upwards. 
  • Jimmy is vaccinated, KC vaccinated, de-flead, de-wormed, microchipped and is neutered. He is currently located in Stoke on Trent.
