Cap is a timid young boy that needs a loving family to help him continue to adapt to home life. He did not go to the prison program, so he’s learning the basics at his foster home. In just a few weeks he has progress so much, showing excitement for walks, exploring the house, going up and down stairs, and play with his foster siblings. He crates well, is cat safe, house trained, and walks well on the leash (well, until he sees a deer, he does get excited when he sees a deer!) He shows no interest in other dogs, large or small.
Cap knows his name and caught on quickly to the daily routine of house life. He wags his tail happily when given a treat ow when his leash is brought out for walks. He loves hugs and pets from his foster family and shows you by giving kisses back.
When coming from the track after his long voyage from Alabama, he got spooked and did bite the handlers out of fear but has since shown no fear aggression. This kept him out of the prison program, so instead he has been living with a foster family. They feel this was just a freak accident, as now they are able to love and kiss on him, he is like any other greyhound and just loves his people. His foster family loves him and has seen no concerns with him biting again. He lets you know when he is uncomfortable or nervous by barking and with a little bit of love and encouragement has been able to get past his fears.
Cap has been around met and love the neighborhood kids but he would do best in a quiet home without little children and with someone able to give that extra love and patience needed to help him feel comfortable in a home.
