Bud

Bud-01 Bud-02 Bud-03
  • Racing name:
  • RWC Littlebigman
  • Age: 7 yrs
  • Sex: Male
  • Cats: Pending
  • Small dogs: Pending
  • Kids: Pending

Let’s give a very warm welcome back to handsome Bud (fka RWC Littlebigman). Bud has returned to WAG following a change in his owners’ circumstances.

Bud has been checked by our vet and confirmed to have aortic stenosis. It’s mild and his cardiac function is not affected by this. He has probably had it his whole life and he was born with it. It should not get progressively worse and there are no restrictions or medications.

Bud was a prior prison program dog who still remembers his words! We’ve gotten him to sit and give paw, but his journal came back with him, so we know he knows more! Previously, Bud was tested as not small animal friendly, but while in foster, we will re-evaluate this. Bud just turned 7 on November 2nd.

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

Demi

Demi-01 Demi-03 Demi-02
  • Racing name:
  • (No racing name)
  • Age: 1.5 yrs (DOB 2/1/18)
  • Sex: Female
  • Cats: Yes
  • Small dogs: Yes
  • Kids: Yes

Demi is a confident, outgoing girl who is looking for an active home. Demi just turned 1.5 years old and should do well with kids, cats and any other dog.

At this time, she does not seem to rely on having another dog around for her confidence, so we believe she may do well as an only companion.

Demi has been spayed and has had all her vaccines updated. Demi is available for immediate adoption.

Myla

Myla-01 Myla-02 Myla-03
  • Racing name:
  • (No racing name)
  • Age: 1.5 yrs (DOB 7/1/18)
  • Sex: Female
  • Cats: Yes
  • Small dogs: Yes
  • Kids: Yes

Myla is a shy, tiny greyhound weighing in at 47lb. Myla is stunning and her coloring turns heads! She just turned 1.5 years old and is looking for a family of her own.

Due to her initially more timid nature, we request she does not go to a home with kids less than 12, or to a home with a dominant dog. She should go to a home that has an easy-going canine companion so she can gain confidence. She would be fine in a home with cats.

Myla has been spayed and has had all her vaccines updated. Myla is available for immediate adoption.

Charlie (On Medical Hold)

Charlie-01 Charlie-02 Charlie-03
  • Racing Name:
  • (No Racing Name)
  • Age: 1 yrs
  • Sex: Female
  • Cats: Yes
  • Small dogs: Yes
  • Kids: 12+

Charlie is a sweet, reserved girl who is about 1.5 years old. She is petite at 55lb but she’s stocky.

Charlie would do best in a laid back household with kids over 12. She gets along with small dogs and cats and seems like she would prefer to have a canine friend at home to keep her company.

Charlie still needs to be spayed and have an umbilical hernia repaired. She was also found to have a heart murmur prior to coming to CT, so our veterinarians will be ultrasounding her heart to determine the cause prior to being spayed. Due to her heart murmur, she was never trained to race. Given she still needs medical work done, she is currently on a medical hold.

Jax (On medical hold)

Jax-01 Jax-02
  • Racing name:
  • RWC Wannabe Jack
  • Age: 5 yrs (DOB 1/16/13)
  • Sex: Male
  • Cats: No
  • Small dogs: No
  • Kids: No

Jax is currently under care by our veterinarian and has recently had intestinal surgery. Jax has inflammatory bowel disease combine with a disease called Lymphangiectasia, a protein losing enteropathy. Both diseases are treatable, but will require lifelong medications and a specialized, low fat diet. While we get Jax back to proper health and get his weight up, he is not currently available for adoption and is on medical hold.

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.

If you’re interested in sponsoring Jax to help with his medical bills, please donate under the Yogi Fund. WAG and Jax thank you!!!
