Additional Details:

Joy is a greyhound puppy that was purchased from a puppy mill. Neither her sire nor dam were registered greyhounds and we don't have any information on them because of that. She is about 14 weeks old and appears to be pure greyhound. Her previous owners only kept her a few weeks before asking us to help them re-home her. They had toddlers and Joy was jumping on them, knocking them over and playing too rough with them. Typical large puppy play and nothing aggressive. Joy is very outgoing and happy, she seems very smart and already crates nicely and knows how to sit on command. She still needs some work on walking on leash. Joy loves going for rides in the car. Like all greyhound puppies, she requires a home with a fenced yard to run around in. Greyhound puppies are not suitable for apartment or townhouse living because they NEED to run and play to build strong bones and muscles. Joy is very calm and well behaved for a greyhound puppy, but still is energetic. She would not intentionally hurt children and likes kids a lot, but may be too rough for small kids. Puppies are normally nothing like the calm adult greyhounds that we are used to and need nearly constant manners training and supervision until they become adults between 2 and 3 years old.

Her foster home has decided to keep Joy! They have greyhound puppy experience and their dogs really seem to enjoy having her there.
