FOSTER UPDATE: Howie is a sweet, mature 2 ½ year old. He is bright, sensitive and getting used to home living.  We have found that too many new stimuli at one time seems to overwhelm him, so he is better at more slowly learning what is expected of him, but is not fearful of new experiences. He is confident and can have a mind of his own. Howie is completely house trained and can be crated for short periods of time. He loves food and treats.  We are working on some counter-surfing issues.  He walks well on a leash, but doesn’t enjoy a harness and is getting more at ease with his walks each passing day. Howie sleeps through the night. He loves toys. In just a few days, he has done very well with the cat. We feel that he might enjoy another greyhound companion. He is still is a little skittish with other breeds, especially larger dogs. He was neutral with children that he met up with. We feel that Howie would probably do better in a quieter home. Howie is a delightful and charming fellow to have around.
