Kevin Faulk is a tall, leggy youngster who raced 37 races, then decided to take an early retirement package. It is a real pleasure to know Kevin. He smiles, wags his tail, and loves scritches and ear rubs (cue greyhound groans). Slightly shy when meeting new people, Kevin warms up quickly. He enjoys being with adults and children.

Kevin is almost 3 years old with a fluffy brindle coat and a permanent 5 o’clock shadow. He knows the “crate” command and trots nicely into his crate. Kevin is smart and food-motivated. He is a good walker and is making progress learning inside stairs (he does fine on outside steps). He knows these commands: down, watch me, and wait. He has started to learn “paw.”

He is cooperative and well-behaved in all aspects of grooming – shower, nail trimming, teeth brushing, and ear cleaning. Kevin is a real gentleman.

Kevin’s radar activates around squirrels and small dogs, but he has done extremely well learning the “watch me” command and allowing himself to be distracted by a treat. Kevin vocalized upon arrival at his foster home, but the “ignore it” technique has worked. The vocalization has dissipated and is now intermittent and brief, if at all.

Kevin is friendly with the two resident greyhounds in his foster home. He sleeps through the night. Kevin loves playing with stuffed toys and will amuse himself for long stretches by unpacking the toy box and transferring the toys to the nearest dog bed.

Kevin Faulk is currently available for approved adopter visits.
