This beautiful brindle boy is not only a looker – he is an absolute softie on the inside too. He loves pats all over, and shows his appreciation for your attention by leaning up against you and giving your legs a good rubbing kind of a massage .
Currently Stem lives with some greyhound foster siblings, who he loves to bits – in his new home he would love a canine buddy for company. He also lives happily with two small human siblings, who are 2 and 4 years old. Being such a gentleman, he would be a perfect companion for a young family. You can see in one of his pictures just what a gentle soul he is around kids.
As well as being a big smoocher, Stem is a fan of food! So far he has eaten anything and everything he has been offered. He is already well toilet-trained, and is picking up some new cues such as ‘wait’, ‘on your bed’, ‘focus’, to respond to his name, and ‘get it’. He even shows signs of being a sitter, which can be a bit of a rarity in a greyhound. Being so food-motivated makes him well-placed to learn some new tricks with his new family.
Stem loves his toys, and especially loves to chase balls. Sometimes he even deigns to bring them back to you for a more traditional game of fetch! Stem also loves a walk – he walks on a lovely loose leash at a nice pace, and enjoys a bit of a sniff along the way rather than viewing walks as a race to the finish line. Once a walk and a pat are out of the way, Stem also loves to show off his laid-back nature with a big snooze.
If you are looking for a gentle and affectionate family man, look no further than Stem!
