The inspiration for her name comes from several famous namesakes – Florence Nightingale (healing and kindness), FloJo (speed), and Florence and the Machine (cos she rocks). Being the smallest and most compact greyhound she is naturally suited to  agility tricks – being the only greyhound locally to paddle board! 

Flo’s reserved nature gives her the ability to work successfully with people living with high anxiety. Her calmness allows space for clients to decompress and over time, learn how to self-soothe. While Florence may appear shyier than the others, once a trusting relationship is established, she will bestow you with her love and cheeky playfulness, fondly referred to as the “sqwiggily wiggles”!
