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.

Rob quite a friendly, handsome lad. Some have described him as a bit of a goof ball but he just wants to have fun! He can be entertained for hours by looking at himself in a mirror.

Rob is a beautiful dark brindle male who loves his toys! He has done excellent with his house training and is also learning very quickly the dog door. Rob seems to be scared of very little and takes everything in stride. He is getting along well with the other large dogs in our house.

He is just a big, gorgeous boy with lots of energy. He is just so happy and friendly he’ll just win you over in a minute. Rob has not been tested with small dogs or cats.

Is a 9 month old greyhound puppy that had an injury early in her life that prevented her from a racing career but it doesn’t slow her down a bit!

“Xrays show an old fracture of the distal femur, just above the knee. It apparently healed on its own and that's why she walks a bit off. She really does quite well on it. Therapy would just consist of straightening the stifle over and over since the hamstrings have tightened a bit. As young as she is, there might very well be some favorable remodeling in that leg.” Per Leah Cole.

She is affectionate, playful, walks well on a leash and listens well. I’ve taught her to WAIT at doors and when I open the car door. She travels well and lies down on a bed if available. She enjoys a pool and will lie down to cool off or to nap. She allows me to take a toy or a bone and listens to the adult greyhound’s advice without any argument. She LOVES human company and will follow you everywhere. I was told she is fine with indoor cats but she is a little leery of children as she has not been around many. She LOVES food but has learned to NOT enter the kitchen without an invitation. I have not tried her in a crate but did see her use a doggie door. She now leaps in or out of the car without assistance. We have taken several 1 or 2 mile hikes and she did just fine. She’s just discovered her “barker” and told the dremel off as well as the garbage disposal. We often visit a yearling Doberman and they play and play and play.

This is a sweet and beautiful pup – not as insanely busy as some and easy to work with, as she craves attention and will work for treats. She still has a desire to chew some so keep her busy with a toy or a bone. She loves affection and will kiss and cuddle with the best of them! She will be a GREYT companion pet.

Pretty good prey drive. Ducks, birds, cats, etc.

Bling is a sweet, tiny girl who may seem a bit reserved/submissive until she gets to know you. But she really is an attention-hog and will demand loving from you when you give attention to any other dog. She enjoys cuddling, belly rubs and playing with squeaky toys. If I lay on the floor next to her bed, I can almost get her to roach on command. She really loves to snuggle and will lick or nibble at you to get your attention for more rubs. She’s young and needs plenty of toys or things to chew to keep her occupied. She hasn’t bothered our shoes, purses or any bags but she will steal remotes and is interested in small knick-knacks left at her level. She loves to dig through the toy basket, removing one toy at a time to get to her favorite Honky Pig hidden at the bottom. Unfortunately, she does not seem to enjoy putting the toys back into the basket. She also has a bad habit of drinking out of any beverage glass left at her level but we’re working on correcting that behavior. She’s a very quick learner so I think this will be an easy correction.

Bling is a phenomenal co-pilot in the car. She loves to go for rides and will jump in the back of our lifted SUV. Once in, she settles down nicely and rides like a dream (no pacing, no attempts to get in the front seat, no whining). Bling also has impeccable leash manners and is learning to “wait” at the door so we can exit first.

Bling’s first foster home had a dog-door which she mastered in no time. Her first foster home also had several Italian Greyhounds which she did not seem to mind. However, she has a high prey drive especially toward anything that “squeaks” so she may not be ok with all small dogs or cats. Bling is young and looks for companionship, either human or another dog, at all times so she probably would do best in a home with another large dog to keep her company while you’re away.

Willy is a large brindle male with an exuberant, outgoing personality. He enjoys playing with his 10" Sherpa ball but will also share it with the other hounds. He also enjoys doing some zoomies. He seems to be ok with dogs in the 30+ lb range. He gets along well with the group of greyhounds in his foster home. He especially likes the girls and will flirt with them. He is affectionate and likes to snuggle. He has been good about staying off the furniture. He has not had accidents or markings in the house since he was neutered several weeks ago. He has free access to the yard through an open door and would probably use the dog door if it is large enough for him. He does like to come into the house at full speed from the yard.

Willy would prefer a quieter home with large dog company. He will not be adopted out to any family with children under the age of 10

Nadine is a bouncy, curious girl who loves pets and people. She’s good with the other dogs here, kids over 5 and uses the dog door. She just turned two in May so she had some puppy behaviors. She doesn’t chew things, just wants to take them. She rides in the car very well and likes walks; we are working on being less excited on the leash.

Shine is a joy to have around- he is smart and pays attention to everything that anyone is doing. He loves to run with the pack- wherever Peter and Cliff are, Shine is, too. He is still young, only 3 years, but wonderful with people. He's not cat safe, but he doesn't seem to be bothered by small kids. ​
