Sil (was Sylvester)
Sil's Mom writes:
"Sil would like to say hello to all his friends - both four legged and two, and a great big thank-you to all the wonderful people who took such good care of him while he was at the kennel. He is enjoying home life and has already learned to get up on the couch and bed. He sends a big hug and kiss to his special friends and says he misses them and everyone, but is enjoying his new adventures."

"Sylvester is now known as Sil!
* note about stairs: there are some wonderful volunteers (Diane & Martha) who take the kennel dogs for walks in areas where the dogs will meet and get accustomed to obstacles like stairs - which can help make their transition into a home so easy!
SYLVESTER HEADED HOME ON THE 26TH OF SEPTEMBER!!
He's going to a lovely home near Toronto with two Greyhound brothers and a Rhodesian Ridgeback sister, and a Mom who COOKS for her dogs!
Sylvester is a happy handsome boy with a great sense of fun, one volunteer has nick-named him "Silly-V", another calls him "Sly" - we're all VERY fond of this sweet boy. He's very affectionate and fun-loving, and he will SIT at your side to be loved up - sitting is rare for a Greyhound!
Sylvester is also a WONDERFUL walking companion! He walks loose-leash at heel and wants nothing more than to please the people he knows and loves.
When meeting Sylvester he needs PATIENCE. He does not warm up quickly, and it may take some time to get him to come to you at first. Try sitting on the bench in the turn-out area and let him approach you, or have a volunteer he is familiar with bring him for a walk in the big yard and join their walk letting him become accustom to you in his time. Bring a toy for him to play with - he LOVES toys! Taking the time to get to know Sylvester will be its own reward!
Sylvester also adores children and has been wonderful with the ones he has met, he would be an excellent fit for a family with kids that want to play fetch with their dog, kids that like the rest of the family who know how to be gentle as well as playful.
It would also have to be a home without small animals - he has not tested safe with cats or other small animals and may not ever be.
Sylvester has been here for well over a year now, since May of 2009. This is no fault of his own, his people just haven't arrived yet - is your home the right one for him? He would someone a VERY happy Greyhound owner!
