Olga is a beautiful happy blonde who has good house manners. She jogs with me 4 miles a day and really likes the bunny rabbits she sees. She enjoys jumping in the pond and even does some swimming. Olga enjoys children and playing dress up. She is not inclined to get on the furniture. She was rumored to be a fence climber, but we have not witnessed this behavior. She seems perfectly content to simply hang out. And I am told her skills include opening latched gates...!

Amazing Captain is a big beautiful three year old boy that loves his human's affection, loves his ears and the top of his head scratched. He walks well on a leash. He has not been small dog or cat tested. He gets along well with my other greys but seems to want to be the boss, however he really loves the company and prefers not to be alone, loves to be in the middle of the action.

We are working on house training and that is coming along well. He is settling into retired life well, learning house manners and beginning to vigorously play with stuffies. He will make a wonderful companion

She is a lovely retired broodie with a gentle disposition. She's very affectionate and wants to be petted most of the time.She has pannus, a chronic eye condition that will need drops every day always. She is very good about the drops. She's iffy about the cats.

Clifton is an amazing athlete—he rose to the challenges of the track with grace and speed. Now that he is a pet, he is much the same—he is wonderfully at home with us. He gets along well with just about everyone, but he loves to chase a ball and will retrieve it. He's not sure what to do with it when he DOES get it, but his heart is in it. He is calm around little kids, but I'm not too convinced about small dogs/cats, and I think that because he does chase that ball that his prey drive is pretty strong.

He's become vocal, he'll alert you when there is someone at the door. He 'dings the bell' we have at the door when he wants to go out, and he loves to catch a snack in mid air (his brother, Peter, has been showing him how to do that.) He doesn't get on furniture, but he does love to chew- so we make sure there are rawhide chewies and some stuffies for him. He still has tummy issues, but when he does get to his forever home I'm sure those will subside.

Diva loves life and being the center of attention. She loves to run around at full speed and is an instigator of play among the hounds. She also enjoys the toys if no one will play with her. Her coat reminds me of a luxurious wool carpet. Although she doesn't pull on a leash she has a tendency to go in circles or at least not in a straight line. I'm sure some leash walking practice will fix that. Probably not good with small children as she can be a bit of a bull in a china shop when excited.

A little smaller than your typical male, Mokie is a snuggler. He also likes to toss his stuffies around. Housebroken, rides well in the car and walks pretty well on a leash.

Ares is a big boned boy from Canada surrendered to us by an owner that could no longer care for him. He came to us at 107 lbs but has trimmed down to 97. Ares walks well on a leash but is very frightened by slippery floors. He plays well with his greyhound siblings in his foster home. We think he is about 5/6 years old but his tattoos don't match any system we have found so far.

Sweet Jamie was returned to us due to a congenital defect which has been repaired with major surgery. Because of this defect she was unable to keep food down, but since her surgery, she has no issues with eating. She is the same sweet, loving little girl she was when she lived here before. She loves being with her human & her Greyhound foster brother & sisters. She enjoys her walks & does very well on a leash. She jumps up in the car & after a bit of a back seat driving, will lay down & enjoy the ride. She’ll run around the house with her toys & has been known to run with her foster sister in the yard. Jamie would probably do best in a forever home with a canine brother or sister for company. Without companionship, she may get bored which could lead to some mischief on her part.

Gwen was returned to GPA due to a change in her family home situation...no fault of hers. I dare you to spend an hour with this little love bug and not fall for her charms. She bounded into our home as if she owned the joint. She quickly found her place in our pack and is not intimidated by our elder, somewhat cranky male. She just ignores him and goes about her happy ways. He's accepted the fact that she will run to the backyard fence with him to bark at the coyotes (she has a cute little "squeak" in her bark). Even though she's tiny (currently only 50 pounds), she will push the other dogs out of the way to be the first to get some loving. She seems to enjoy snuggling with us on the floor and resting her head across an arm or in your lap. She will look you square in the eye and nudge your face, just begging to be petted. She's simply a cuddlebug!

Gwen knows how to use a doggy door from her life with her previous family but we don't have one at our place. No worries...she is very good about letting us know when she needs to go outside (we've had no accidents in our house although we work from home so the dogs are let outside several times throughout the day). She is an early riser though...5:15am every day to be exact. She goes outside to pee and comes right back in and goes back to sleep until we need to get up.

Gwen loves her plush squeaky toys and the infamous Honky Pig. We found her sleeping on our couch once but no issues with furniture since then. She seems very content to snooze in one of the many beds throughout our house and on our patio. We have an unfenced pool and she jumped in the wading area (18" deep) her first day with us. She seemed to enjoy it but hasn't attempted to go into the pool again. She absolutely loves going for rides in my Jeep (we do this several times a week). If she could, she would jump into the front seat to serve as co-pilot. Gwen has fantastic leash manners. We walk for an hour every day and she loves these adventures.

If you're looking for a sweet little red girl who loves attention, Gwen is the bomb!

Renegade, or Renny as I like call him, is very sensitive to loud noises, especially thunder. He loves to go for walks and does well on the leash, but can get excited when he sees another dog. So far he hasn't met one he hasn't liked! He doesn't seem to mind when I leave the house, but take one of the other Greyhounds with me & he's not very happy. He enjoys sharing toys with his foster siblings and will even take toys to them. It took him a little while to warm up to me, but now he gives me the sweetest kisses & he makes sure he gets his share of loving. He does the cutest thing with his ears; while laying flat against his head he'll flip the tips up. Just look at that sweet face, he has that perfect eyeliner going on! He is a very sweet young man and will make a wonderful addition to anyone's family.
