The name Orson derives from the Latin for “bear cub”. And this Orson is a big, cuddly bear who loves meeting people & just hanging out with them. Orson is a litter brother of the gorgeous Luigi (now named Benny) who was homed by us last year; the two boys have many similar traits.

Orson has adapted very quickly to home life – including finding the dog lounge to his liking in less than 48 hours! He is the ultimate “dish licker” and leaves nothing in his dinner bowl. He loves his car rides and daily walks – his lead manners are generally good but he does get a bit excited by cyclists & kangaroos! On a hot day you will find him cooling his feet off in the pond, so a clam shell paddle pool would go down well.

While he will accept being out in the yard for a period, like most self-respecting Greyhounds, Orson prefers to be an indoor dog. He would be best suited to a family with adults only or older children (12 years plus). He would be happy as an only dog or in a home with another larger (preferably female) dog. Orson is not cat tolerant.
