Meet our new foster greyhound: Sticky (Sticky Boy)

Cute Sticky (Sticky Boy) arrived a couple days ago - when I saw him first, I went: "Oh my God its a rabbit!" :) Sticky has the most amazing ears -which have a life of their own! :)

Sticky also has lovely markings  -he is white and black, with lots of freckles all over.

He is such a kind doggie, very soft and very responsive. Not very confident at this stage, but willing to try anything, go anywhere and explore! :) He hums when you rub his ears too.
 


Sticky was a very successful racing greyhound - he was trained by D Schofield, my Louie's trainer. He was imported from Australia, had 85 starts and  earned over $45,000 in stakes.
Now, he is ready for his well-deserved retirement.

Sticky walks beautifully on the lead and loves meeting other dogs. He sleeps like a baby through the night,  eats well, and generally tries to do his best :)

His trainer said he loves kids too.
Yesterday we took Sticky for a run at Kyrewood, where he made friends with resident Corgi Benjamin.
See their picture below:

I have just done some research into Sticky's bloodline - he is beautifully bred, his  Dad is famous sire Big Daddy Cool, and his Mum is Miss Megastar. Also, Sticky looks so much like his Dad! Just check out this picture of Big Daddy Cool:

And these are a few pictures of Sticky winning his races:

Nice ears. And he looks like a fuzzy one.
