De Niro Greyhound DofB 2020 RRemedies Centre

Current Status: Available
De Niro's Story: De Niro is a retired ex Racer who was fully trained incl. to walk to heel, in obedience and regular welfare checks. Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place saving his life. De Niro is now neutered, chipped, and fully vaccinated. De Niro came in to our Rescue Centre nr Gatwick whilst awaiting his new family.

If you are interested in rehoming one of our dogs, the first step is to complete and submit our ONLINE HOMING QUESTIONNAIRE. We do not discuss dogs without a homing questionnaire submission. You must be ready and we will only contact you if we have a suitable dog. For more detailed information, please see our Homing Process.

Please support our work and help our long stay dogs: Our minimum Adoption Donation is £250 (£400 for pup under 1 yr old). This supports our continuing rescue work and is non-refundable. We exist solely due to the goodwill and donations of our supporters and volunteers. Our dogs need supportive families who will offer them patience, time and tolerance whilst they settle in their new homes. Our Rescue offers all our dogs back-up for life.

Please note: Dog laws have changed, with zero public tolerance and prejudice against bull breeds and terriers in particular. Our Rescue asks new owners to keep their dog on a lead in public spaces and manage and support its encounters with new dogs and people, so as not to place the dog's life at risk. Destruction and Control Orders are commonplace nowadays.
De Niro's progress through our Rescue is below.
We work with our dogs, who often reveal an evolving picture and positive skills as they build trust.

Original referral information: We were asked if we could help another greyhound and De Niro is the beautiful boy chosen for us and his new life.

De Niro came into RescueRemedies on the 24th May 24

What a totally beautiful boy. His face reminds me of little Bernie (now Ernie) who was homed recently - such a lovely yet slightly anxious expression - I can't wait to walk him and to meet him properly. Kiss of love.gif

Today I met De Niro for the first time since he arrived at rescue remedies.

He was very calm getting harnessed and didn’t jump up once. He was a bit hesitant as I expected due to the new people and environment but once he was out, he was very happy.

De Niro walked by my side the whole time, like he didn’t want to step a paw out of line. We had a few sniffs here and there and also stopped for a water break.

There was also a few breaks in the walk for some pets and cuddles! Overall, De Niro was amazing to walk and can see him becoming a very well liked dog at the shelter :)

I met De Niro yesterday when I went to walk his kennel mate. He was so welcoming that I just had to take him for a walk too.

Harnessing him was a doddle. He was ever so easy to manage. Very calm and quiet and with the same sweet disposition as his kennel mate, Hayley.

He seemed to want to stay close to me and he walked either just in front of me if the path was narrow, or sandwiched against my side.

We stopped for a few strokes and then we had some more strokes, together with Hayley, when I dropped him back. He's an affectionate boy.

The only disappointing thing about De Niro was that he doesn't talk Italian. I tried a few Italian phrases on him but he didn't really respond.

De Niro is another truly lovely dog to add to my list of faves.
Please give me a home. I'm a very lovely dog.

Affectionate and happy to see you without being boisterous, De Niro was a joy to meet today. He had a play in the paddock - he seemed a little unsure what to do at first and didn’t chase the ball, but soon enjoyed bounding around after me. Maybe he didn’t get much chance to play as a professional athlete.
We met Rocco, a little Patterdale terrier, and his walker, and De Niro wanted to stay with them, following then going in front but checking they were still with us.
He was unreactive to other dogs except for a similar calm interest. Even when 3 horses trotted up suddenly behind us he was only slightly startled, then very interested in sniffing where they’d been.
After a good walk he enjoyed some fuss and treats - I look forward to taking him out again.
