Sox is a galga from Spain. She just recently made her big adventure over to the United States in May. She is a very affectionate dog that loves attention and hugs. Sox seems to have a bit more energy than the typical retired racing greyhound. She still loves to nap, but if you’re looking for the stereotypical “45 mph couch potato”, Sox may not be the right fit for you. A nice walk does seem to help her relax. She is very friendly with people and all the dogs she meets. Sox would be happiest in a home with medium to large breed dogs and without cats. Sox has earned the nickname “the singing galgo” and has already mastered the “greyhound lean”. Sox has a big personality and has a lot to “say”! She even gives kisses when you ask her to. Sox has a long, curly tail that goes straight up in the air when she runs up to greet you. Sox doesn’t have a problem with the stairs in her foster home, but she is still working on willingly going into her kennel. Galgos require a commitment to leash walk or a 6ft + fence in their adoptive home. Galgos are known for their jumping and climbing abilities and it is possible that even a 6ft fence may not be secure for them. Each galgo is different in that respect and requires individual evaluation. If you’d like to learn more about adding Sox to your family, contact our adoption coordinators.
