Hi folks, meet Sullivan (Sully)


Recommended Posts

Hi folks, this is my first post here.

I'm from the UK, me and my family have just adopted a 3.5 year old ex-racer.  We have changed his name to Sullivan (Sully for short) as "Swifty" was a bit awkward to call.

We are absolutely amazed at his behaviour and adaption to home life.  He's been well cared for both by the racing trainer and briefly by the rescue centre (they only had him for two weeks).  He's great with kids, walks well and is generally very affectionate and happy.  He doesn't make a sound at night and hasn't had any toilet accidents, he's very clean and just waits for walkies.

Such a good boy and we're really thrilled to have him come and be part of our family.

I'm sure I'll be scouring the forums for tips and advice.

regards

Graham

Hello Sully and family.  Well done! :clap  

That white blaze is amazing.  I'm surprised he lasted even two weeks at the adoption kennel.

He didn't!  As soon as the advert was posted I was on it like a rash.  We only couldn't pick him up straight away as they had some vaccinations to do and we were going on holiday for 10 days anyway, so we agreed to collect him upon our return.

I think it was Brighton and Hove.  He was trained by Claude Gardiner Greyhounds.
