Buddy is a delightful little fourteen month old lemon and white coloured Whippet. 

Buddy was born in Ireland and has come to Hector’s hoping to find his perfect forever home. Buddy spent the whole of his short life living in Greyhound racing Kennels before coming to Hector’s. He is now living happily alongside other whippets and a Greyhound in a fabulous Hectors foster home.

Buddy can be a little nervous when meeting strangers, particularly men for the first time, but once he knows he can trust you he is a happy and friendly little boy. In fact Buddy likes nothing better than snuggling on your lap for a cuddle where he will happily settle to sleep, he an affectionate and very loving little boy.

Buddy can live as an only dog or alongside other dogs of any breed. Like any young puppy Buddy loves to play with other dogs, disappointingly for Buddy though only the Greyhound in his foster home is happy to have a game with him, Buddy accepts this with good nature and is respectful to the older whippets in his foster home.

Buddy clearly hasn’t played with toys before but he is starting to enjoy playing with them. He has surprisingly, for such a young dog, not been at all destructive in his foster home. 

Buddy is a gentle boy who will make a fantastic addition to any family home. He has  probably lacked socialisation during his puppyhood which is why he can be a little nervous at times. But it is clear from the progress he has already made in his foster home that he will certainly catch up very quickly in a home where someone is prepared to spend time introducing him to a world outside a kennel environment while he is still at an impressionable young age. 

Buddy is still housetraining, but the inclement winter weather isn’t something Buddy enjoys and he isn’t 100% reliable yet. However he is currently recovering from his neuter which we feel will improve this and he will obviously benefit from the spring weather with an open door to the garden. A chance to play safely in a garden in the sunshine is a joy Buddy is yet to discover and one we know he is going to love. 

Buddy a very beautiful young dog, with a gentle loving nature, he certainly deserves a wonderful home where he can continue to develop into a fabulous family pet.
