Grayson is a 3 year old Neutered DLH who was surrendered by his owner due to the fact he is moving and was unaware that the new place did not allow pets. Owner stated that he has had Grayson since he was 8 weeks old. He got Grayson from a friend. Grayson has no known medical issues.
Owner states that when around strangers Grayson is friendly and outgoing. He has spent time around children and is relaxed and playful. When playing with adults and children Grayson owner stated that he plays ruff. Grayson’s owner stated that he has always played ruff with him since he was a kitten. Grayson has spent time around 3 kittens and was very nurturing and caring toward them. Grayson has not spent time around dogs so it is unknown how he will react.
Owner stated that when playing with Grayson he may scratch someone. On the way here in the car he was meowing. When being bathed Grayson struggles to get away. He has never had his nails trimmed before. He enjoys being brushed. When being held he is ok for a few minutes then he wants to get down. He isn’t bothered when put in a carrier or if he is disturbed while he is sleeping.
For a new family to know:
Owner described Grayson as friendly affectionate and playful with a high activity level. He likes to play with string balls, lasers, wand toys and can play very rough at times. He has been kept indoors only and eats dry food. He likes temptation chicken treats. He is very much litterbox trained and never has accidents. He is used to an uncovered litter box with crystal litter. He scratches only on his scratching post which was made out of wood and carpet.
Lying in center of kennel when I approach. He lifts his head and looks around the room with ears forward as I open the door. Alert, curious about what is behind me. Tolerates petting while lowering his head and body. Keeps trying to peek behind me. Needs more time to adjust. Sprayed feliway.
Comes forward when I open the kennel door – tail raised. A big boy! Allows petting along his head and body while leaning in, his tail quivering. Doing better today – really warmed up. Tail swishes back and forth with continued petting but does not nip or offer any correction – continues to allow petting. Sprayed feliway.
