Spirit doesn’t whine and rarely barks. He loves attention and gets on well with staff and inmates, as well as the other greyhounds, and has no separation anxiety. He is cautious with the CCI lab puppies. He has no problems with bathing, ear and teeth cleaning, and having his nails clipped. When approached while eating, he just keeps on eating.

Spirit’s occasional carefulness with shiny floors continues to improve as his handlers work with him. He knows all of his commands, and is now refining his sit/down and down/stay. Of course, with a promise of dinner in front of him, he does a sit/stay without any problem.

Everyone is charmed by Spirit and he loves attention and to be petted. His trainer says he is a wonderful dog and is very sweet and mild-mannered.
