Sammy is a sweet little wiggly puppy. She loves to be near you and give you kisses (hands, feet, nose - if you aren't careful). After she gets to know you she will lay on her back looking adorable until you rub her tummy.

Sammy rides well in the car and loves squeaky toys. She also enjoys her daily walk (she does wander a bit on leash but does not pull). The cats trust her and she completely ignores them. Sammy is definitely people-oriented but will run around the back yard with my greyhound.

She does not like to be confined – she chewed on the baby gate and moved chairs out of the way to get to "off-limits" rooms. Once the obstacles were removed she was quite content. Sammy is very well behaved in the house otherwise. I did catch her sneaking my shoe off to her bed for a little chew time – hopefully she will outgrow that.

Sammy is a funny little dog with a huge heart. Check out Sammy and her "Curly Sue" tail today!

Crown is a happy, sweet boy. He uses the doggy door, gets along with the other dogs in our home, and eats like a champ. He does pull while on a lead; we are working on correcting this behavior. Crown is very responsive to gentle verbal correction and really wants to please his people.

Raffie is kind of considered "special needs" because of his broken tail. Raffie has very limited mobility in his tail (wagging or lifting). The impact of that is:

1. He cannot express himself fully when he is happy. So if you like a big tail wagger he is not for you.
2. He cannot lift it out of the way when he eliminates. Waste does get caught under his tail so he needs wiped after he eliminates.

Raffie was very insistent on marking in the house the first few days he was here. A bad boy band and scolding made little impact on him. He was doing it to feel safe and confident. Over 3 days I'd say he marked in 8 different places. After that he got it out of his system and quit.

The exception to that is when I brought another "marking" male home for the day. Over the course of 8 hours they (both of them) marked probably 10 different places. I guess they both got it out of their system because there was no more marking the rest of that evening (probably another 8 hours or so). There have been no marking issues since then (I have not brought anyone new into the house either).

Raffie continues to ignore the 4 cats in his foster home. They trust him completely. He loves his daily walks, squeaky toys, and soft cushy beds. Raffie does seem to need canine companionship. He really likes being around my older female greyhound.

He is still a puppy. While he is laid back most of the time, occasionally he gets rowdy in the yard. He will jack rabbit around and try to pounce. It is very adorable!

His current foster home is quiet and follows a fairly consistent routine. Raffie is doing quite well here. He is a very special dog and will make the right person the perfect companion.

Soft & furry. Whoever adopts her gets naming rights to her last three pups! (This is quite an honor). She has a mild salivary cyst, not a threat, just looks odd. We haven't decided whether to have it removed. Lovely lady.

Jessica is a very shy little beauty, with stunning white markings on her chin, chest, paws & the tip of her tail. She also has the cutest white patch on the back of her neck. She likes getting petted as long as there's another dog next to her. I guess she figures if they're alright with mom petting them, she'll be OK.

She definitely likes being in a pack, so probably wouldn't do well as an only dog. She walks perfectly with my 3 Greyhounds, doesn't pull or shy away from me while on the leash. Jessie has been known to be in a room by herself only to start talking, as if to ask where everyone is, and of course we all go running to check on her! I don't have a dog door, but she's been very good about going outside, as long as the other dogs are with her.

My daughter-in-law calls her a Ninja dog; she can be very stealth when it comes to stealing my shoes. She is still very young & like a young pup is very interested in whatever is within her reach, so the house has been puppy proofed & mom is getting re-trained on what it's like to have a puppy around again! She can be a counter surfer at times, but is learning that's not a good thing to do. She rides very well in the car; will jump right in & lay down. Jessica is a very sweet sensitive girl who likes a quiet house, so she may not be a good fit with very young children.

Stetson is a sweet, quite, cautious and tentative boy. Everything is new and overwhelming for him at the moment but as he learns what retirement is about he is starting to relax just a little. Right now he is relying on the other greyhound in the house for his cues and almost never does anything without her by his side. He is learning to trust that his own decisions are OK and he can do things on his own—but for now, being a follower is just fine by him. Stetson will do well in a home with other dogs, as being alone seems to be what makes him nervous. He is not destructive and he does not have separation anxiety—he just wants and needs to have another dog around to make him feel really at home.

He walks like a dream on leash -
He is a gentleman at dinner time -
He sleeps all night on his own bed -
He is fully house trained -

Woody is a great, fun dog that is eager to please. He enjoys playing with his humans, other greyhounds, and his stuffed toys. He also loves running zoomies in our backyard. He should live in a home without small furry pets of any kind and small children. He really enjoys his daily walks and gets excited around walk time. He is very competitive during walks, he raced AA and still does not like being in second place. He is very affectionate and seeks companionship - he is a good little buddy. I have taken him running and he may need some minor reminders to not stop, but he is really attentive to your pace. He may not like to share his pillow with other greys and he does not like sharing his food (currently he is free-fed. His bowl is always full and he never over-indulges). He is not aggressive, however slightly defensive. He is incredibly mellow (except around walk time) and he really is a great little guy. Careful, he is a charmer.
