Luna

Adopted!
Luna-01 Luna-02 Luna-03
  • Racing Name:
  • PJS Settin Fires
  • Age: 4 yrs DOB: 11/15/15
  • Sex: Female
  • Cats: Yes
  • Small dogs: Yes
  • Kids: 12+

Unfortunately, Luna (previously known as Midnight or PJ’s Settin Fires) is coming back to WAG.

She found that young kids are a little too much for her, and would like a quiet home with older kids. She does well with cats and small dogs. She has lived with other greyhounds before, so we are unsure how she would be as an only dog.

Luna turned 4 in November and retired from racing with no injuries. Luna was also trained through the Connecticut Prison Greyhounds training group at York Correctional Facility.

She previously injured a ligament in her right hind leg and as a result she walks a bit funny. However, her leg doesn’t bother her and she gets around just fine. She will be evaluated by our vets when she arrives in Connecticut but otherwise she is available for immediate adoption! Most likely cat/small dog safe – we will confirm this.

He has a very dedicated foster family who is determined to get him back to health.

Jax will be turning 6 in January. Jax does not do well with small animals, both cats and small dogs. He should also not be placed in a home with children. He does well with other greyhounds.

Aura

Coming Soon
Aura-01 Aura-02
  • Racing name:
  • Super C Aura
  • Age: 4
  • Sex: Female
  • Cats: No
  • Small dogs: No
  • Kids: Pending

This is Aura (Super C Aura)! Aura is four years old and is recovering from a surgical fix of her broken hock. She is healing well and is available for adoption!

Aura is a happy and confident dog and not much scares her. She loves to take treats from her people and would love nothing but a run in the yard. She has tested not safe with cats upon arrival and we will soon be testing her with small dogs. At this time, we are unsure how she would be with young kids, but she is sweet enough to most likely do well with older kids.

Aura is looking for a foster willing to leash walk her until her leg is ok’d by our vet. Or she is ready to go to her forever home! If you are interested in Aura, please fill out an application today!

Please call or text 860-845-7196 for adoption info.

Onnalee (On Medical Hold)

Coming Soon
Onnalee-01 Onnalee-02 Onnalee-03
  • Racing name:
  • No Racing Name
  • Age: 10mo DOB 4/20/2019
  • Sex: Female
  • Cats: Pending
  • Small dogs: Pending
  • Kids: Pending

This is Onnalee. At 8 months old, Onnalee is not your typical puppy. New things make her scared and she’s not so sure about her trip up to New England from Kansas. Onnalee will need a special person willing to work with her. We’re hesitant to call her a spook, because she was not like this at all back on her farm; she was a happy, outgoing and social puppy! But we can tell she needs time to adjust. So she unfortunately is no longer adoption pending and will be going to a seasoned foster home that can work with her. It is required she go to a home with another greyhound who is confident.

Right now, she will not walk on a leash. But she also cannot be out in a fenced in yard because she does not want to be caught. So her new adopters will need to work with her on confidence building and leash manners.

Onnalee broke her elbow as a puppy and it doesn’t cause her any trouble, but it has healed with a callus, so it looks swollen. Unfortunately, she recently slipped on ice and fractured her radius and unla. She is currently on medical hold while she recovers.
