11/11/17 – Hattie is just over 2 – a very young girl still! She’s a repaired fracture, but is all better no. She looks to other dogs for guidance and reassurance and so likely will be best with another dog in her house. Per her veterinarian, she should not be crated for 8 hours during the day without a potty break as she will develop a UTI. She needs either a midday break, doggie day care, or dog walker to let her out. Or someone home with her. She loves her squeaky toys. As you can see from her photo, this girl turns heads wherever she goes. Hattie is sure to bring you smiles!
10/15/17 – After one week returning to a familiar (yet new) foster home, Hattie has settled right in. The doggie doctor found a UTI and that seems to be why she was peeing in her crate. Hattie has been on antibiotics for almost a week and has another week to go and then she’ll get rechecked. She’s had no accidents in the crate or out of it… Hattie walks great on walks by herself and is very well behaved. When she gets with the other Greyhounds, she want to be in the middle of the pack! Foster Mom walks two and foster Dad walks Hattie and another one and when she is in the back and she wants to be in the middle front! Hattie is still the most loving Greyhound foster Mom says she has ever had.
10/9/17 – Sweet Hattie has a UTI, so she’s been having some accidents in her crate but they’re not really her fault. She’s on antibiotics now and likes to take it with some cheese, please! The vet also said her hookworms are not gone yet so she’s still working on those too.
10/5/17 – Hattie continues to prove to be very sweet. She can still be very grabby with treats, mostly when the other dogs are around. We have been teaching her the “wait” command at meal time and she is starting to get it. Still some work to do with this as she is a very eager eater. All the dogs stand around the pantry closet when I am filling the bowls from a large tote. If I turn my back, Hattie will start eating out of the tote as if it’s a buffet! She definitely has an intensity about her on certain things…. food and toys. She will not drop her toys when asked and has been known to growl when you try to take them. We are working on this. This would be a concern if there were small children in the home. She continues to get along well with all of our greys and they allow her to lay next to them. If someone is looking for a sweet, cuddly, playful girl, Hattie is the one!
09/08/17 – AVAILABLE AGAIN: Hattie originally tested “cat friendly” with proper introductions, got adopted once, yet after a couple weeks pinned the terrified white fluffy cat to the ground… So probably not safe unless the right situation. (Adopter very experienced with cat/dog introductions and a tough kitty that will put Hattie in her place.) Fortunately the wise adopter had muzzled Hattie so Kitty is safe, just shaken up. (Muzzles can be a true blessing during transitions. Never be afraid to use them. These dogs are used to their basket muzzle.) But there was another helpful discovery the adopter made that really cemented the decision that Hattie would be happier somewhere else. We also discovered that Hattie needs to be around another dog in her next home, she looks to them for guidance and reassurance. She was a very easy foster dog in a home with other greyhounds. She has lots of love to give.
08/22/17 – Hattie is improving on all the things she is learning about being retired. She went to the pet shop last Saturday and she did well. She was friendly with all that she met, adults and kids alike. She is now sleeping out of the crate at night with her foster siblings – three Greyhounds. She loves all the squeaky toys that she can get her little paws on and squeaks them while just laying around. She’s even tried to bring the outside squeakies inside. She did well with a small dog that she met last week. Hattie follows her foster mom around and if she wants your attention she bumps you in the hind end!
8/7/17 – Hattie is a repaired fracture who is available immediately from home fostering.
