Additional Details:

Rachel is a grinner and sometimes gets very carried away and chomps her teeth while she is grinning. Don't be fooled - she wouldn't dream of using her teeth for anything but smiling. Smiling is a submissive gesture in greyhounds and the smilers usually make wonderful pets that want to please. Rachel gets along great with other dogs.There is a very irritating mini-doxie in her foster home but Rachel has never once been bothered by him. She loves to go for walks and has even done long hikes with her foster mom. Rachel has some separation anxiety, but that is beginning to fall away and in time may not be an issue. She once followed her foster mom from room to room but now is even OK sleeping in a separate bedroom. She is most comfortable if she is in a crate when she is alone and that keeps her calm and out of trouble. She loves to go for rides and has not shown any sign of separation anxiety in a car and will just lay on the seat and wait for you if you get back. Rachel is a super sweet, outgoing girl that wants to be with you and wants to please. She is smart and learns quickly and has picked up on house manners fast. What a beautiful girl! She is going to make a wonderful pet for a very lucky family.

Rachel was adopted in 2009 by the Adams Family of Candler NC. When they had to move to Qatar in 2014, Rachel couldn't go. The Keener family took her in and lost her to acute renal failure on Feb 2nd of 2018 at 11.5 years old. RIP Rachel.
