Lady and Dino

This couple that came in recently had a greyhound that they lost a year ago, and they were ready to adopt again. But what’s better than adopting a greyhound? Adopting two greyhounds! They first picked out one of our Irish girls, Lady, who is super affectionate but has a case of separation anxiety. So the next step was to find a buddy for her. We introduced her and the couple to several of our boys, and Lady helped narrow it down to two. And the lucky dog that got to join this new pack is one of our last remaining U.S. greyhounds: Dino! – Mike Forrest
Artemis with her new mom, Julie.
Recently, a woman came in from Tacoma looking for her first greyhound. She has thought about adopting one for the last 30 years, but has had other breeds in the meantime. She brought her list of dogs she wanted to meet, and we introduced her to a whole range of greyhounds and mixes. She got it narrowed down to three retired racers from Australia, and the lucky dog that won her over is our little girl Artemis! – Mike Forrest

A woman and her son came in looking for a second greyhound to go along with Finn (fka Brutus) who they adopted last year. Their family recently lost their other greyhound Ginger. Finn is a big boy from Ireland who gets along with everybody, so it’s fitting that on St. Patrick’s Day he now has a new brindle buddy – Tiffany! – Mike Forrest
