Join us here as Regional Vice President Kathy Kreyling shares stories from the Adoption Center. Check out our Available Dogs to see who’s still waiting for their forever home.
When this Lady gave us a description of the dog she would like to get, the first thing she said was that she wanted a “goofy” dog. We immediately knew which dog would be going home with her! We did show her a few different options, but she fell in love with our goofiest guy — a darling black guy from Australia named George!!
This couple was looking for a girl and, even though we didn’t have a lot of girls, we sure had some special ones for them to meet. And, just for fun, we also showed them a few boys. They had narrowed their choices down to two girls and one boy, but after time in the yard, it was down to just the two girls. Really, it was almost impossible for any of the dogs to compete with this dog — she had the softest bunny fur we have encountered in quite a while (with the exception of her sister’s whose fur was just a touch softer). The couple left with Breanna and my guess is that they haven’t stopped patting her yet!!
When someone comes in with 2 small dogs, Italian Greyhounds in this case, we know that we are going to be showing quite a few dogs in order to find the “small dog friendly” ones. That is exactly what happened and, in all the dogs we showed, we only came across 2 that we felt were solid possibilities. And, truthfully, one of them screened herself out because she was just a little too interested in the Iggies when we went outside. With all that being said, this couple really lucked out because they ended up with a dog that was a big time “kennel favorite”. This wonderful fawn girl from Australia was incredibly gentle with the small dogs and, in fact, most of the time she didn’t even pay any attention to them. Crystal, nka Lily, will be a greyt addition to the family!!!
This couple has been through a lot in the last couple of months. They moved here from Chicago and shortly thereafter had to send their Greyhound to the Bridge (he had lung cancer for a long time). Hopefully, the stress and sadness of the last couple of months is behind them and they can go forward with their new family member — that very handsome black boy from Ireland, Buster!!
