Special needs greyhound Parker has been on a long journey of recovery since he sustained fractures to one of his forelegs 7 months ago. Now after many vet visits, several surgeries, bandage changes and xrays, Parker is ready to have fun and enjoy life.

This tall and lanky boy is such a fun loving lad and at times can be very active. He loves his zoomies around the yard, has discovered the joys of his little paddle pool and has a ton of fun with his canine housemates.

Parker loves getting out for walks, loves travelling in the car and definitely loves the comforts of home. He enjoys nothing more to snuggle up on the couch in front of the tele and be tucked in with a blankey on the cool nights. Yes Parker does love attention from his humans.

He is currently in foster care with other greyhounds both male and female and an elderly Kelpie. Parker is also very tolerant of the 2 resident indoor cats, taking very little notice of their silly feline antics.

Parker is available for adoption in the Newcastle area.
