Rumba is a cracking, ex-racing greyhound who has hung up his racing shoes and is looking for his next adventure. Despite being retired from racing, he has now turned his paws to training and learning new tricks - and he is quite the training whizz! He is looking for a family with an interest in training, who would enjoy continuing on with the positive, reward-based work that we have started here. Due to his racing history, Rumba does have a prey drive and needs to wear his muzzle when out and about (which doesn't bother him at all). He is dog social, although he will grumble and bark at small dogs. He prefers larger dogs, especially other sighthounds, and has walking friends here at the centre.
Although Rumba is a friendly chap, he has had an incident in a previous home when he was lying on the sofa (our Training and Behaviour team will go through the specifics when you apply), so he is looking for an adult only home with a family who have the space to provide Rumba with his own special sleeping quarters. This could be as simple as a nice, comfy bed in the living room. We wouldn't recommend that Rumba sleeps on the sofa or in your bed with you, so if you're looking for a snuggle buddy then Rumba isn't quite the right match. Rumba would love a garden to stretch his long legs in, and given some time to settle we think he could be left for short periods of time.
Due to travel restrictions, all potential homes must be within an hours drive of the Leeds Rehoming Centre.
