Chance

Adoption Pending
Chancey-01 Chancey-02 Chancey-03
  • Racing name:
  • No Race Name
  • Age: 6mo
  • Sex: Female
  • Cats: Yes
  • Small dogs: Yes
  • Kids: Pending

Chance is a sweet, lovable, crazy greyhound puppy who adores her greyhound foster brother and is happiest when she is with him.

She went to her foster family with severe separation anxiety, especially at night, and was not a fan of her crate. To help her feel more secure, she sleeps in a crate near her people and foster brother. In just a few weeks, she has made great strides and seems to be building the confidence she will need to overcome her separation anxiety. She will still cry when left alone, but with patience and understanding we believe she will grow into a confident adult.

Chance thrives on routine. Instead of dreading bedtime she now goes out to potty and then happily goes into her crate to have a bedtime cookie. She no longer cries at bedtime and keeps her crate clean overnight!

Chance is full of energy and always ready to play. She loves to go on daily walks and is always up to run and play in the yard with her foster brother. They play hard! Chance also loves toys and chewing. She has various bones, chews, and food puzzles to keep her busy.

Chance is an eager learner and responds well to positive reinforcement. A few challenges she is working on:

  • Potty training is still a work in progress, but greatly improved. She now keeps her crate clean and dry overnight.
  • Being left alone. She is improving but will still cry when left alone.
  • She is fearful of loud noises i.e. sirens, the rubbish trucks, snowplows.
  • Chewing – she will need a lot of guidance and appropriate chew toys. She loves to chew everything in her path including bones, chews, food puzzles, furniture, books, picture frames)

Chance is currently on hold while she continues to work on these areas. She must go to a home with another greyhound, and she is not suitable for apartment living due to her being high energy and very vocal.

Angie (Angel)

On Medical Hold
Angie-01
  • Racing name:
  • No Race Name
  • Age: 6mo (DOB 08/2020)
  • Sex: Female
  • Cats: Workable
  • Small dogs: Workable
  • Kids: Pending

Angie came to us with severe wounds to her leg after being a puppy and trying to climb under a fence…. the fence won and despite months of excellent veterinary care and bandage changes, the wounds were unable to heal on their own, and they were too substantial for surgical repair. There was also bone involvement which was either infection that spread or fractures that were unable to heal. After multiple consultations, it was in Angie’s best interest to amputate the leg.

Angie is 6 months old and will begin to look for her forever home once fully healed from the amputation and then fully healed from her spay procedure which will happen in a few months. Angie will need another dog at home who has no territorial issues. She enjoys sharing food (right out of the dog bowls!) with her fellow greyhounds in her foster home and playing very rough with them.

We’re requiring a fenced in yard as well. We are unsure about small dogs, but she should be workable with both them and cats. But her people will have to be diligent because she is very excitable.

We are not taking applications or inquiries about Angie’s adoption at this time. We will announce when she is fully healed and ready for her forever home.

Sammy

On Medical Hold
Sammy-01 Sammy-02 Sammy-03
  • Racing name:
  • Windy Sammy
  • Age: 3.5 (DOB 06/20/2017)
  • Sex: Male
  • Cats: Yes
  • Small dogs: Pending
  • Kids: Pending

Sammy broke his hock racing and it was surgically repaired. He has since had the plate removed because the screw came loose and was causing him irritation. Sammy still has a long road to recovery because his cast is beginning to cause major irritation on his leg. He will need daily bandage changes for the next few weeks as we get the wounds to heal.

We also found that Sammy is going blind. His vision is very limited and bright lights bother him. He is most likely going blind due to PRA (progressive retinal atrophy) which cannot be cured or reversed. He will be 100% blind within the next few years. At this time, he navigated extremely well and will adapt to most situations fine. We do request he go to a home with another greyhound as his “seeing eye dog”. He will be able to navigate small staircases, but not flights of stairs.

Sammy is also HUGE! He will get to 80-85lb once his muscle reforms and he gains a little weight. So keep that in mind! But Sammy is a big baby and loves his people. He is a social “bull in a China shop”! He seems to tolerate cats but we have not tested him with small dogs.

Tater Tot

Tater Tot-01 Tater Tot-02
  • Racing name:
  • No Race Name
  • Age: 3 years old in May
  • Sex: Male
  • Cats: Yes
  • Small dogs: Yes
  • Kids: Pending

Tater Tot will turn 3 years old in May, and he never raced. He has mostly only been around females, so he tends to prefer them to males. He is good indoors usually but doesn’t like new situations. He does not like being on a leash so will need a fenced-in yard, but if he gets out in bigger open fenced areas, he can be extremely hard to catch. He does well with other greyhounds, however, and will follow them.

Tater Tot is very shy and a bit of a spook, so he will need to go to an experienced dog owner with a lot of patience. He will come with a spook harness in addition to the normal collar and leash. Tater Tot should not go to a home with kids as he tends to be afraid of them.

He will be joining us soon.
