Foster Update 11/11/2023:
Hello Greyhound Friends, my name is Scotty, though my foster mom calls me Joey because with my ears I look like a baby wallaby! I’m 19 months old, light as a feather at 38 pounds and I’m about 22 inches tall at my withers.
I love to play! I’m still a puppy in many ways. I’m sweet and curious with people and with other dogs. I grew up around cats, too, so I like them as well. See how sweet I am with my foster sister who’s a pit bull!
I would LOVE to live in a home with another dog and with human children aged six and older because I’m so playful and curious! I need a fenced-in yard to feel safe and secure when outside. My foster mom takes me out for nice walks on leash, but I can’t help being scared outside because when I was a puppy overseas, I and my siblings were always in “fight or flight” mode. I am getting much better and love people and I love car rides!!
My foster mom can’t keep me, so won’t you take me home? I will be loving addition to a family with kids and another dog, and cats are great too!
Scotty recently arrived from Oman, along with his brother Laddie, both are Wadi dogs. Wadi dogs are from the wadis (dry riverbeds) of Oman. they are typically stray dogs that live in groups and are generally non-aggressive survivors who avoid police interdiction. They are believed to be a mix of Saluki and other sighthound types. Scotty is striking in appearance and mid-sized--not too big and not too small. Scotty is a little reserved at first and wants to be with other dogs which makes him much more comfortable. He is friendly and does well with people dogs and cats. He is 18 months old. We are looking for an adoptive or foster home for Laddie--if you can help, please call 732 356 4370.
