So a few months ago we were asked to take a Greyhound called Jack. His racing name is Not So Blue.
He had been in his family two years after being adopted from another rehoming centre. Jack had snapped a few times in his home but never broken the skin. Jack’s family we’re having a BBQ and someone that the family and Jack didn’t know, walked into the garden with food and Jack being a Greyhound went to take some of the food from the plate. This lady did no more than drag Jack away and went on to belt him 3 times.
Jack was scared and snapped and caught the lady and again didn’t break the skin. Unfortunately Jack’s family although heartbroken felt they couldn’t keep Jack safe. They called the Greyhound Rehoming centre to take Jack back as they know him very well but unfortunately they said Jack would be put to sleep. They didn’t ask to see the video of the incident which was caught on video. I asked for the CCTV footage and you can see it all happen and can see it wasn’t Jack’s fault.
Jack is settling well with Greyhound Protection UK and now under assessment he is a lovely gentle boy but sensitive so we will go at his pace.
