Watch more of Victoria

Sweet Victoria is a petite, dark fawn greyhound. She arrived with a serious injury and did not exhibit any awareness of her wound. She didn’t mind wearing her protective cone and T-shirt, and would patiently allow her medication to be applied without any protest. What a little trooper!

Victoria is a very quick learner. She picked up on the doggie door in about 5 minutes and has never had an accident in the house. Walks are so exciting for her. She does well on a leash and loves to sniffeverything. Doggie treats are heaven sent (she told me so), and dinner time is cause for more celebration. Her fondness for treats should make training easier. Victoria enjoys being with people; so much so that when her person leaves the house she howls for a few minutes and waits by the door for a little while hoping they will return soon.

Victoria is an advocate of the Greyhound Roach, accepting scratches at any time. She can be a little shy when in unfamiliar settings, though she will soon relax and enjoy her home.

Victoria needs canine companionship in her forever home; she lived with kitties for a while and then decided it was fun to chase them into a corner – so no kitties for Miss Victoria. If you have a dog or two, extra squeaky toys, comfortable dog beds, TREATS and enjoy walks – this adorable girl will make a greyt companion for you and your pack!
