Nero is an 7-year-old, high energy goofball who defies his age. He leaves his younger foster sister in his wake!

Nero would love a house where someone is home most of the time and/or another dog for companionship. He will follow you around from room to room and just be happy to be with you. He might be a bit much for very young children but anyone over the age of about 9-10 would be good.

Nero loves to go for walks and is very energetic and quite strong. He will definitely need a strong handler. He also loves to do zoomies around the yard until he is completely pooped.

As he has lived outside for all his life before FOTH, his skin is dry and itchy. He loves sardines on his breakfast though and a gentle bath, both of which are healing his itchy skin, and he will be looking his very best in no time!

Although not perfect, he is learning that the kitchen is out of bounds, but sometimes he still strolls on through, particularly if following his human.

He can be a bit fussy when eating and is not always interested in his food – very unusual for a Greyhound! He prefers to eat a bit and then graze during the day, which is not always possible with another dog in the house.

He is an affectionate boy who loves being around people. He is not shy at all and is always keen to greet new people.

He is a gorgeous dog to look at, with beautiful eyes, and a really lovely personality to match!
