Additional Details:

Grumbler is not grumbly or grumpy at all. He is actually very friendly and loving. We think he got his name from the sound he makes when he he needs to go outside - kind of like the hamburgler in the McDonalds commercials - "rabble, rabble". Grumbler is an extra large greyhound, a gorgeous red brindle male that raced at 83lbs. He has an unusual slightly roman nose. Grumblers birthday is March 29th, 2008 so he is 3 years old.His foster home describes him as playful but pretty laid back and no trouble at all. He is a huge guy with long legs that is one of the tallest greyhounds his foster home has ever had. If you like big dogs this is your greyhound! He walks nicely on leash and potties on leash so may be OK without a fenced yard if his family was willing to walk him. In spite of his size he is easily corrected when he sees something interesting on a walk like a squirrel. He settled into home life very well and has done great on potty training since he makes the cute grumbly noise to let you know when he needs to go out. He gets along very well with other greyhounds male and female. He is a confident, happy guy that wags his tail a lot and will stand and let you pet him for as long as you are willing. Grumbler did great with kids and adults at a recent meet and greet and seemed to do OK with small dogs over 20lbs. He still needs to be tested with cats. Grumbler loves to roll around and play with toys and is usually found roaching on the living room rug! He may need some time to adjust if he would be a single pet, as he's used to having his foster-buddy around, and seems to be much happier when they can be together. He loves to show his appreciation and affection by hopping around when he's excited, coming up for ear rubs and body scratches, and talking in the funniest voice his foster family has ever heard! He will talk to you about how happy he is to go for walk, eat, or just to play. Grumbler came to us from a good owner and racing kennel and has always been treated well. You can tell from his sweet personality and love of people. He is a healthy guy that is neutered and ready to go home.
