Guest posted a topic in Introductions & BiographyHey everyone! This beautiful creature is the newest member of my family, she is a 20 month old American Staghound, which is part Greyhound part Scottish Deerhound that I adopted from a rescue. I had every intention of adopting a retired racer and that is what I was looking for when I came across this girl and it was love at first sight! This is my first sighthound so I am sure I will have MANY questions and look forward to getting to know some of you. I was very pleased to hear that this community doesn't discriminate to "the fuzzies" as I really want to have a place to turn when I have questions!
Ok so Izzy got away yesterday morning around 11, there were no sightings of her the rest of the day, I was up at dawn today and out looking around 8 am I had my first sighting of her a couple miles from my house, at one point she was back in my yard, I even got her to take a hotdog out of my hand but then she bolted again, long story short it was after 5 pm before I finally got her. My question is, will she always be this way? It was so frustrating when she would get close and then switch directions again, we never chased, just watched with binoculars and followed from a distance, will she ever trust me enough to just come to me? I know I have not had her long enough to build that trust yet, just wondering if it will ever come. I'm just so relieved to have her back and there will be NO more retractable leashes in my house so no one can make that mistake again.
