Registered Name: Solitary Paavo Call Name: Paavo Whelp date: March 19, 2003 PAAVO IS OUR FEATURED PET THIS MONTH. DURING THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY, YOU CAN MAKE PAAVO A PART OF YOUR FAMILY FOR ONLY $100. More on Paavo--Paavo is a handsome black greyhound who had little--atually no--interest in racing and did not race. He is an average size male greyhound (about 72 lbs.) He is super sweet and loves to touch you and lean against you. Paavo originally came to us from Suncoast Kennel and has been in an adoptive home for almost a year. His adoptive owner had to return him due to a change in the family lifestyle. Paavo gets along well with other dogs, but will chase cats and very small dogs. Paavo is already home acclimated, completely house trained, and has excellent house manners. He is a fun, playful dog who loves squeaky toys. He enjoys throwing his toys up in the air and trying to catch them. He can go up and down stairs with ease, walks right by your side while on a leash, and loves to go for walks and car rides. Paavo's foster mom often takes him to work with her, and he loves all the attention and being with her during the day. We recommend Paavo for families with older children ( 10 and over) because Paavo is a little too active for very small children. Paavo does best with medium to large size dogs who are easy going and gentle like he is. Unlike some greyhounds, Paavo is also content to be an only dog in his home. Because Paavo is more active than some greyhounds and enjoys a short run around the back yard, we recommend a fenced yard for him. If you are looking for a nice, easy-going and affectionate greyhound, Paavo may be the perfect match for you. Paavo's special $100 adoption fee includes his neuter, teeth cleaning, all vaccines, microchip, leash and collar, and an adoption guide.
