Moe (Magnificent Moe) – Moe is an 8 year old male greyhound lurcher, born 10/12/2015. He is 75 pounds, a stunning brindle. He retired (officially) from field trial racing *around* April 2023. His field trial trainer had not raced him for 2 years prior. But sometimes it just gets hard to let go of certain hounds; some have a special place in your heart. Anyone who meets Moe will understand. He is a happy, friendly boy. He likes to lean on you when he wants affection, I guess just so you can’t ignore him! Moe is crate trained, potty trained, good on leash. Likes to greet everyone on his walks. He learned good house manners pretty fast! He can climb stairs, up and down. Moe will benefit if there is another dog in his next house, but he could also be happy as an only-dog in a house. Moe needs a stable, understanding home, so Prison Greyhounds asked to be the adoption group to help Moe find his forever family. We think a quiet/calm home will be important for him.
He walks nicely on leash, preferring a leisurely stroll over a brisk pace. He enjoys playing with toys and throwing them around as well as collecting them in his crate.
Moe likes to come up to his people when they are on the couch and rest his head in their lap for scratches. We think he would love to be on the sofa cuddled up with his people, he often jumps up (front feet only) on the couch for attention but does eventually listen when asked to get off.
He enjoys playing with toys, particularly smaller squeaky toys, and tossing them up in the air. He and greyhound Zellie play quite a bit outside. Moe he likes to use the shrubs along the back fence line to run behind and through and then sneaks out a different opening to get the element of surprise. They also often have a bit of play as they race up the stairs to bed.
He is a very sweet boy.
NOTE: He has not been cat tested, we never had a request. He is already fully vetted and microchipped.
