Additional Details:

Janet came in from the Roban Farm in Florida. She is a puppy that just didn't show much interest in chasing a lure so she was retired before she ever got to the track. Janet won't turn 2 until March 2nd. Her sire is M's Free Mason and her dam is M's Free Action. She is very shy at first with people she doesn't know but has more confidence than her sister Chrissy, who is also available for adoption. Janet is the redder brindle of the two sisters and has a gorgeous shiny coat. She is very very tiny for a greyhound, weighing only 45lbs. She is one of the smallest females that we have ever placed. Janet has warmed up with her foster family and bounces around playfully and even cuddles in bed with them but it did take some time. She is a silly, happy girl once she has time to warm up. The shyness is just her personality and not the result of anything bad happening to her. She had great owners and was raised on a nice farm. Both girls inherited their shyness from their parents. We have decided not to place Janet and Chrissy together. Chrissy is too dependent on Janet to be healthy and the two girls are more timid when together. Once we placed them in separate foster homes, they both did better. Janet is doing very well in her foster home. She kennels quietly and has good house manners. She will need time and patience to warm up to her adoptive family but isn't nearly as shy as her sister. Janet is curious about the small children she has met. She is more likely to approach a new small child than a new adult. She approaches very carefully and gives them gentle kisses. She seems like she might do well in home with a quiet child but multiple loud kids and running and screaming are likely to scare her. She is more timid around loud noises like yelling or slamming doors. Janet is a very very cute little girl with a lot of love to give. She may always be a bit of a homebody. She likes to go for rides in the car and just lays down. Once she gets to her destination she isn't sure she wants to get out to walk around in the new scary place. She probably would do better in a home with a fenced yard because she does get spooked easily on leash and will freeze in place.
