Greyhound Rescued From Racing Was Afraid Of Affection Until He Saw His Baby Brother

Mosley, a 4-year-old greyhound, was rescued from the dog racing industry.Scott Merrihew and his wife quickly adopted the dog, but he was so used to noise and a lot of dogs around him that he had no idea how to respond to love and kindness from humans.

“When we first got him, he had separation anxiety and was very protective of his space,” Scott explained to The Dodo.”It took a lot of patience with him over the years to get him as comfortable with life off the track as he is now.”Mosley, 8, became especially attentive to Scott’s wife when she became pregnant.

“Towards the end of the pregnancy, he was a lot more cuddly with my wife,” Merrihew said.”He could tell something was up!”Mosley had nothing but love for Lucas Merrihew, a baby boy born about a week ago.”His initial reaction to Lucas was very interested, but he knew he needed to keep his distance,” Scott said.”He’s been wonderful with the baby.We currently lock the cats out of the room at night, but Mosley is permitted to enter.”
