Somehow (and I have no idea how) but the GAP staff have managed to nickname me ‘Etch A Sketch’.. which is apparently ‘adorable’. I must admit though I’m quite a fun guy to be around and I’m getting really good at coming to my name and just love being around people.
I am super food motivated which has made training really easy and I look forward to continuing my schooling in my new home. I can still be a little ‘over-sniffy’ when meeting other dogs so would need my new home to continue training me on what a polite greeting requires (apparently pushing them with my nose isn’t ideal). I am an outgoing dog and would suit an active, similar minded family.
Sketchy is ready for a foster to adopt trial prior to adoption.
As with all greyhounds I am a work in progress, I will still need further training, socialisation and maybe some management strategies to truly thrive in your home. The GAP team can provide you with lots of hints and tips to help me on my way but please be prepared to be patient and spend some time working with me.
