Harvey is a very affectionate, fun-loving 1.5 year old boy who is available for adoption. He loves daily walks, especially to patrol for squirrels! He tends to be a little shy when meeting new people, but once he’s comfortable with you, he becomes your shadow.

Harvey loves his humans once he bonds with them. He likes to randomly ask for pets, and he will even hug back when you hug him. We think he would be a great snuggle buddy if he was allowed on the bed or couch! He has a good amount of energy, but he’s working on learning patience, especially when it comes to food.

We would classify Harvey as cat workable. When a cat sets boundaries (a good hiss and a well-placed slap) he’s pretty respectful, although he will still try to get them to play. If a cat runs from him, he definitely wants to chase. Harvey would likely do fine as an only dog, but he might be happier with a playful canine friend, or at least regular playdates. In his current foster home, Harvey whines at his reflection and at his two cat foster brothers because neither will play with him. Harvey would love to squirrel hunt too and is very focused on small critters during walks — he is learning not to pull too much when he sees them, but he still gets very excited!

He has not been small dog tested, nor has he been around children yet.

One of our favorite things about Harvey (other than the hugs) is he sits! Not on command yet, although his foster mom is working on it, but he will just randomly sit!

Houston (Adoption Pending)

Houston-01 Houston-02 Houston-03

  • No Racing Name

  • Sex: Male
  • Cats: Workable

  • Kids: Pending

Houston is also here in CT for adoption. Houston is Harvey’s brother! He is a 1.5 year old beautiful dark red brindle.

Houston can come off shy at first, but warms up quickly. He is currently in a foster home and is adjusting well. He had come up with a wound which quickly became infected and after spiking a 104.5 fever, he was admitted to our veterinarian’s office for IV fluids and antibiotics. After a few days of medications, he is feeling better. Houston is still recovering and is also suffering from hookworms and giardia, two types on intestinal parasites. He will need to gain some weight prior to adoption and will likely need continued treatment for his parasitic infections.

Houston has already shown he can be playful and enjoys human interactions. He would benefit from another greyhound friend at home who is confident and outgoing. Houston would do best in a home without cats, but could be workable with very mellow cats and a greyhound/cat savvy owner. He does well with all other types of dogs, but would probably enjoy a home with no children.

Houston is currently on medical hold until he gains some weight and starts feeling better, but get your applications in for him now before he’s swiped up!!

Caspian

Adoption Pending
Caspian-01 Caspian-02
  • Racing name:
  • No Racing Name
  • Age: 2 (DOB 09/01/2018)
  • Sex: Male
  • Cats: Yes
  • Small dogs: Workable
  • Kids: No

Caspian was returned to WAG in the first half of November. Caspian is a 2 year old male who is clearly very stunning. Caspian is also a graduate of the CT Prison Greyhounds program.

Caspian has been having some behavioral issues that we will be working on prior to him being available for re-adoption. Caspian’s ideal home would be with another greyhound, in fact we’re requiring that with this adoption. He should also go to a home with a fully fenced in yard because sometimes, walks can be scary and he wants a safe place to do his business.

Caspian should not live with kids and he should live in a mellow, adult home, ideally with little foot traffic. Caspian is very, very shy, but does warm up – especially when there is another confident greyhound to follow.

Caspian is cat friendly. When adopted, he was friendly towards other dogs and other dog breeds, but now he will bark at them when approached and avoid them. We will be working on building up his confidence with this.

To inquire about Caspian and meet him, please contact us or submit an application.
