NIGEL
Age: 4 years 9 months | Sex: Male
Microchip: 956000009479661
Location: Western Sydney (Londonderry)
Nigel meaning "champion" and "dark", seems fitting for the sleek black champion of the couch, Nigel! Nigel is a confident, sweet, and easy going boy with a charming and loving personality.

Nigel would suit full time hours with a house/backyard as he likes to sunbake and watch the world go by, throw his toys around and lick his kong until he falls asleep in the "roach" position. He would suit an active owner, or a home with a backyard who can throw the ball around for him and give him some mental stimulation.

He would suit apartment living if his humans were home more often than not (eg work from home/casual hours) to give him exercise, enrichment and a good routine of toileting trips and walkies to sniff the neighbourhood. Nigel loves being indoors and comes to find his humans for when he needs to go to the bathroom.

He is a stickler for routine and would thrive in a home where he is taught routine and given lots of praise for being a good boy - he is a very quick learner. He absolutely loves food, too, which will help any training his forever family might like to do. For example, in his short time at GAP, he has even been learning his name during training sessions!

A home with no kids or older kids/teens would be best as he loves his toys. He also walks nicely on the lead which is great as he does like his walkies. Nigel would suit a home with another greyhound as he has previously lived with a female greyhound, he is playful but also loves to get his few minutes of sillies out and then sleep on a bed in the company of another grey. A suburb with a low dog population would be best for Nigel as smaller dogs and unfamiliar breeds are still something he is learning about.

He has become a bit of a favourite here at the adoption centre due to his friendly and confident nature. Nigel will show you he loves you by placing his head in your lap for attention or dropping his favourite toy at your feet.

This goofy couch potato shouldn't last long at the adoption centre so get in touch with the team to meet him and take him home!
