Megan arrived to foster on 23rd December and has adapted well to home life and living with 3 other dogs.
Megan is curious, playful, sweet natured and has started to flourish and show her personality.
Megan is at the end of her season. We could have left her in kennels until finished but decided that it would be nicer for her to leave.
Megan is well behaved in the home, she loves a squeaky toy, and likes to be with our dogs, go for her 2 walks a day, she is clean indoors, just a very well adapted girl.
We want Megan to have company of other dogs in her home.
Please read below what her foster mum says about her in more detail.

Dogs name: Megan
Where does Megan sleep at night?
Megan sleeps with one of my dogs in the lounge, dining area. Megan is at the end of her season and I have a neutered male who is a a pest sometimes so we separate them at bed time.
Megan paced a bit the first few nights which is normal with greyhounds when they leave kennels. But now will curl up in her bed or on the sofa and sleep. No accidents or destruction overnight. We have a spy camera and she settles soon after lights out.
How is Megan with current pets?
Megan loves our 3 dogs, it’s sad she was never really able to socialise with other dogs, but considering this she loves the company, she follows them around, in the garden she likes to play chase. On walks she follows them and waits if she is ahead for them to catch up.
Is Megan clean indoors?
Yes, not one accident since arrived.
Can Megan be left alone?
Yes due to the Christmas period we have not left her more than 30 minutes, but she sleeps without us overnight and she may pace initially but learning fast.
Is Megan out on walks?
Yes, 2 walks a day, she loves her walks, her tail gets very excited when she knows we are off out. She will now hop in the car for the journey to the woods.
We have let Megan off in an enclosed field, she has a naturally fast gait so a slow lead walk must be so boring for her, so we run, and go to the secure area for off lead. Our AM walk is on an extendable lead and we do a fast pace, she now sniffs and enjoys her walks now she knows it's for fun.
How does Megan walk on the lead?
Lovely, as with most greyhounds they walk well on the lead, Megan doesn't pull. We use an extendable lead when away from roads to give her more freedom.
Has Megan met other dogs?
Yes, met dogs out, no issues, her tail wags, she likes a squeaky toy/ball, we met a dog with his squeaky ball, she just wanted to chase with him for the ball. No aggression.
How is Megan with humans?
Megan was a bit worried at first when we approached, she now comes for affection, she wags her tail to greet us, she is a very sweet curious girl.
Have you noticed if Megan is afraid of any particular things?
Nothing we have found, she isn’t afraid of the hoover, the road, she’s very well adjusted.
Any other useful information ?
Megan is a very sweet curious, clever girl, very easy to have around, she likes to be part of the family, loves her walks, lays in her bed in the lounge in the evenings, she has found she likes toys, she will bring each one from the top box onto the rug and play with them. Very sweet girl. Her face has changed and she appears to realise her kennel/racing days are behind her and she likes it.
Megan is at the end of her season which isn’t ideal, but we wanted her to leave kennels before Christmas, so she could enjoy it in a home. So any new adopters will need to be aware she may have another week or so to be safe. She will need neutering in 2 months which will be part of the adoption agreement and we will need written confirmation of neutering once done.
Megan likes other dogs in her life and we feel she would love another dog she can do zoomies in the garden with. Megan has been without the company of other dogs and now deserves to have her happiest family home that she will prefer. So we are asking for another dog in the home, whether a greyhound, or another breed dog who likes to run, Megan has started to play inside and also likes her play chase in the garden.
