#WhynotMEpet of the Week: Troy

My name: Troy (male) My age: three years

Adopt me at: Greyhound Pets, Inc.

About Troy: Troy is a delight. He is a happy, playful boy once comfortable, and has come a long way during his time with Greyhound Pets, Inc. (one year to be exact). Troy will need an experienced home; someone who is dog savvy, patient, willing to go at his pace and will continue Troy’s training using positive training methods. He will need a quiet home with a fenced yard and no children and no cats — but he would love a canine companion, preferably a female. Troy is affectionate and a big time leaner, but doesn’t like to be overwhelmed or over handled. As an ex racer, he has some pain in his back legs and spine, and is currently on Gabapentin for pain and Fluoxetine for anxiety.

Greyhound Pets, Inc. has worked with Troy to desensitize him from having his legs and back touched, and will give a free training session along with a special Martingale collar and car ramp to the people who adopt him, so he can continue making more progress with his sensitivities. Troy can run and play like a normal dog, but he should use his ramp to get in and out of the car so he doesn’t re-injure himself.

Basically, Troy is looking for a home that is as gentle and sweet as he is, and people who are patient and knowledgeable as he continues to learn how to be a pet rather than a racer.

#WhynotMEpets is a statewide campaign that gives cats and dogs needing more care and attention a greater chance of finding a home as quickly as possible. Its mission focuses on animals that have been homeless for two months or longer; are elderly; have behavior or medical needs; aren’t thriving in the shelter environment; or make up a large percentage of the shelter population, such as bully breeds. These are the animals asking “Why not me?” To learn more, visit pawsitivealliance.org/whynotmepets.
