  1. Rogue was a bit like that, mostly sleep startle but maybe some resource guarding mixed in, when he was on the couch. I continued to allow him on the couch, but only if no one else was using it. If we were, he was sent to his bed with treats. About 6 months later, we tried sharing the couch again and he was fine. No issues since.
  2. It would be helpful to ask if the dog has ever been left alone while with the foster, for example: the one dog goes on an outing and the other stays home, either with human company or not. (This something I do with my dogs so they don't get too dependent on each other) I agree that confidence will also be good to ask about but not a deal breaker. My grey was low confidence and has a tendency to be noise-phobic but never had any SA or issues being the only dog for the first 2 and a half years after adoption. (And now I think he appreciates when he gets to stay home from outings that I take second dog to hehe)
  3. Right before Thanksgiving, we added a new pup to the family! Her name is Jyn and she's a bunch of terriers all thrown together. She is about a year old at the time of this post. It has been wonderful watching her bond with Rogue and seeing the playful side of him she has encouraged. Please enjoy some of their photos during this time.
  4. You might find more people in your area on the GreyTalk Facebook group! I found a local-ish (an hour's drive away) Greyhound walking group that way.
  5. Rogue can join the bush pooper club! He also did poop on a chain link fence. 😂
  6. Between November-March, I take my grey with me fairly often to run errands. Usually a trip with errands for me than a walk at a park for him. The first time I did this I'd only had him a short time and he was an anxious mess when I left him in the car, and got poop all over himself. So we practiced on being settled in the car before trying again. Now he's a pro!
  7. Rogue LOVES the cold. He comes alive during the winter months. We'll be walking down the street and his tail will just be wagging. We do the most of our hiking during the cooler months because of this. The summer humidity is hard on us both so we retreat indoors then.
  8. Aww thank you for sharing! I love the sunshine.
  9. You could use a poop bag covered litter scoop to catch the runny poop before it lands. Really helped me when we first moved to the city and my grey was having nervous poops and would have to go in inappropriate places.
  10. If I'm not out for very long, like under 4 hours, I get the same low key response. I don't mind it! Sometimes when my partner gets home late, he's so excited he greets both of us even though I've already been home haha!
  11. Bringing this up because I just bought Rogue a FitBark 2! Eagerly awaiting it's arrival. And would love to follow progress of other greys!
  12. Can't weigh in on the barking, my first one is the silent type! But he LOVES walking and we go for miles. Just not in the middle of July haha. Right now is our best time of the year and he usually gets his second wind at mile 3.
