Flynn has retired after 45 grandstand races. He has from a hock injury and is doing very well. He is still new here at AFG and we are getting to know him better. Could this cute cookie be the fella for you?
Hi my name is Flynn. I’m a sweet, friendly guy looking for a forever home. I’m pretty laid back, but do have short adorable moments of excitement when something really fun happens like dinner or a walk or a favorite toy comes out. Sometimes I even get so happy I smile. I’m really affectionate to everyone (even strangers) and love to lean in for a pet or scratch. I would love someone to snuggle. I get along great with the other pets in my foster home. I really like other dogs and don’t care if they are greyhounds or not. I even don’t mind the kitties that live with me. I gave them some gentle sniffs when I first got here, but now I pretty much ignore them even though they sprint around the house like crazy little monsters. I like playing with toys (especially Kongs, bones, and squeaky ones), going for walks, napping in a soft bed and just getting pets.
I am very good at stairs and riding in the car. I am pretty good on a leash. I get a little excited for the first minute or two and then I’m calm. I never get upset about people being near my food or toys or in my space. I may try to snuggle with your dog, but if they aren’t interested I’ll find my own space. Now that I figured out how to ask, I always go potty outside. I don’t mind having my nails trimmed, and I’m a very good boy in the bath. I really like being brushed. Sometimes I need some tasty encouragement to go in my crate, but once I’m in there I don’t complain. I am eager to please and I listen well when someone lets me know what I am not allowed to do.
I did get an injury in my back leg while racing that made my gait a little off. This is barely noticeable and doesn’t stop me from running, doing stairs, or playing. It doesn’t get worse or sore when I play and I’ve done some serious zoomies at my foster home. I do take glucosamine for it, and now it’s even better. You probably won’t even notice it, I don’t.
Are you looking for a gentle, calm, quiet, snuggle bug? I might be the right dog for your home.
