Dog Info

Age 16 months
Sex Male
Other Pets? cat friendly


Alek’s personality shines through his expressive ears— they move together and individually as an adorable perky pair! He gets along well with his foster families cats. He would like to be friends with the cats—if they would just let him.

Alek has a genetic condition that is causing him to go blind slowly called progressive, retinal, atrophy or PRA. His vision is currently estimated to be around 20% of normal. When he was first brought into his foster home, he learned the layout quickly! He walks well on the leash and isn’t easily startled with passing cars. He will need a canine companion of medium to large size.

Alek can see a cat walking within 6 feet, but can sometimes stumble over his foster brother’s feet that may be sticking out! He can sprint up and down the stairs and do zoomies in the backyard. He leads the way on walks and wants to greet everyone he sees! His sight disability really isn’t that impairing to him!

Alec is a young dog and he deserves to have a happy long life in a loving home. He enjoys all the same things that other greyhounds love, including soft beds, long naps zoomies in the backyard and walks. Alek will need a canine companion in his new home. Do you have room in your heart for this loving boy to join your family?
