Here’s Lettie

Lettie (Jinja Heart) is our latest foster, she’s been returned to GAP after about 6 months living with a family with children.

She’s smart, inquisitive, confident and fitted right into to home life with Raro immediately. She can be a bit vocal at times – unusual for a greyhound – but she seems to be calming down as there isn’t any one else barking around here.

She’s very interactive though still needs to make the transition to being more focused on what her humans want instead of being in her own world. I would imagine that after a few months in the right home her behaviour will have changed.

Walks well on the lead, great with other dogs and meeting people. Very well mannered and very trainable.

Unfortunately she seems to be very familiar with how couches work; she is happy to jump up and share a sofa with Raro if she feels like it. He’s very accommodating, but has no choice in the matter anyway.

Raro and Penny

Penny has been staying with us for a few days after Christmas, she’s just headed north to Kerikeri. She’s been great company for both us and Raro, who seems a bit lonely since Vulcan died. They follow each other around, Raro is far more engaged when Penny is around.

Penny is absolutely delightful and is very, very smart – she learns routines extremely quickly.
