Monty is so laid back! He arrived at our home on Saturday afternoon and after a brief introduction to the 2 resident dogs he settled in as if he had always been here.  He is very polite and gentle, but also has real character about him and a little cheekiness too! He has settled quickly at night without any fuss at all, is delighted to go out on his walks and runs in the fields, loves to sunbathe in the garden and is happy to snooze the day away in a sunbeam or comfy bed.

Monty is a star, he is very well behaved in and out of the house and loves everyone he meets. He can be a little excitable when meeting other dogs out and about but as long as he has time to greet them politely he is fine.
He spends most of the day asleep but loves to have a play with his toys too and will throw them around by himself, jumping and spinning like a pup!

His recall is a bit hit and miss so somewhere secure for him to run would be an ideal....and he does love to run! HC isn't slow but Monty was half a field ahead and still gaining ground, poor HC thought his legs weren't working properly!

We have cows in the field behind our garden and Monty likes to spy on them through a broken piece of fence, but he will walk through them on lead and not show any interest at all!

Monty really is a gentle soul who will make a wonderful addition to a family and give so much happiness and companionship in return for some love and ear tickles. He would be best as an only dog or with a steady calm dog so that he can just chill without being bounced or bothered.

Monty is waiting patiently for his new Forever Home. He really is no trouble at all - a couple of good walks, a run to stretch his legs, food, a comfy bed and some love. Other than his size you wouldn't really know he was here....except for when he spotted a cat
 in the street....he made sure we all knew that about!

Monty and HC have buddied up together, they have the occasional disagreement when they argue over who is getting to the Postman at the door first, but are happy to run races and play tuggy together too.
I could hear odd sounds coming from the study yesterday and went to see what was happening....I met Monty in the doorway sliding on a dog bed across the floor! He was bum up in the air, elbows in the bed with a huge grin on his face and looked up at me as if to say "Oops, rumbled!"  He has an estimated age of somewhere between 7-9 years old, he certainly acts on the younger side!
He is such a sweetheart and will be a loving companion to someone who is willing to offer him a lovely new home xx

Monty is waiting patiently for his new home and will be such a wonderful companion to someone. He is currently in kennels for a short time and was very pleased to see me when I went in today x

We saw this gorgeous gentle giant at the kennels yesterday and he was absolutely delightful.
He did his best 'sit' for treats and was so polite taking them.

He also had a wonderful hurtle around the paddock, kicking his legs in the air.
Here he is poised for action:

He really is such a wonderful, affectionate boy - we're so hoping he gets his forever home soon!

My favourite boy came out to play today, did a couple of laps of the paddock and then just came to lean against me for a fuss xx

Hi is Monty back in kennels, as I thought he was rehomed? Did it not work out?

Sadly it didn't work out for poor Monty. He's such a sweet boy it's a real shame to see him back in kennels.

Oh no that's such a shame, Monty was my very first foster dog five and a half years ago. He's such a gorgeous boy.

Lovely Monty is really not doing well in Kennels at the moment and would LOVE a foster/forever home. He came out today for a quick cuddle and a run and helped me put the clean bedding away while I was working. He really hates being in kennels and would really benefit from being in a lovely home.

I am fostering one beautiful greyhound. He has spent too much time in kennels through no fault on his part.
 Monty is a lovely boy. I have never looked after this breed before and if honest never wanted too. I'm on a learning curve just lately. Small dogs. No no not for me. Well again they steal your heart when your not looking. Back to Monty. House trained obedient in the house so affectionate loves people. Good at night. Most of the time gets on with my fluffy happy little girl. Remember what do greyhounds do? Fluffy equals sport he just warns her with a bark. Molly is six and fairly street wise so understands. There must be many of you that could love this dog he gives 100 percent back.

His needs include someone who can walk him he is a strong dog needs to move and run. Food a soft bed. The most important lots of TLC. Not much to ask is it?

You get one loving beautiful boy with those lovely eyes that will melt your heart.
