Additional Details:

Bear was the result of an unplanned pregnancy. His mother is JS Lil Bit Tipsy and his dad is a greyhound but we aren't sure who. He was born on November 7th of 2015 and won't be available for adoption until he is at least 8 weeks old and weaned. Bear is a confident friendly pup, very happy go lucky and sweet. It is rare for greyhound pups to be available for adoption since most pups are bred to be racers and go to the track before they are available for adoption. Occasionally we get greyhound pups that are unable to be registered because of an accidental breeding like this or are injured as pups and aren't going to go on to race. Greyhound puppies are not like calm adult greyhounds in any way. They quickly grow to full size by 8-10 months old and can run nearly as fast as an adult racer at that age. They are very hyper and can run and play all day at that age so need a large fenced area to play in and lots of play time with other dogs and humans. Like all puppies, they can do a lot of damage to your house if unsupervised by chewing, digging and during the long potty training process. Greyhound puppies are not for inexperienced owners and are a huge responsibility. Like all puppies they need a lot of socialization and work to become the happy friendly dogs that we normally get from the track.
