UPDATE from foster carer: “She has a beautiful nature with no aggressive tendencies to humans or dogs, is very keen on being close to humans all of the time. Is very excitable when greeting people after time away from them and new people, in particular young children. She is however learning not to jump and be so excitable after 1 week of training in this area she improved significantly, however with new children work is still in progress, but definitely possible. Has improved walking on lead and does not pull at all after walking daily with another dog. She would probably suit a house with older children or none purely due to her exuberance. I would suggest a house with someone home often and able to put some time into.”
Lively 2yo Xinnia is a very happy go-lucky girl, she enjoys a dip in the pool by day and a bed to relax on by night. As Xinnia is still quite young, she is still in the learning stage in socialising with other dogs and also her general manners. She has shown to have appropriate manners with smaller dogs after a quick sniff and is improving in time. We feel Xinnia would benefit in a home with large dog experience and positive, slow introductions with other breeds of dogs. As she is quite exuberant, teenage or older children would be best as she may accidently knock a smaller child. Xinnia can initially be strong on the lead but does calm in time. Available now on a foster to adopt basis at our Western Sydney facility.
Xinnia is currently serving time in our Women’s Correctional Centre as part of our Prison Pets Program in Western Sydney. This offers highly rewarding and beneficial schedules for the Greyhounds to assist them in preparation for life on the outside.
As well as being behaviourally assessed, Xinnia has:
- a C5 vaccination
- been desexed
- been microchipped
- been intestinally wormed
- been heartworm tested
- had flea and heartworm prevention
- been LIFETIME REGISTERED (no need to register with your council – this is all done as part of the Lifetime Registration)
