Bomee nka Essun with new parents, Jillian & Will.
These recent adopters have been on our waiting list for quite a while for a cat friendly dog, but I’d say the wait was worth it! This little girl was rescued by our friends at Team Inch in South Korea. She was one of 50 animals rescued in February from a bad breeder situation, and she made her way to us a couple of weeks ago. Despite everything she’s a super friendly, happy girl and did great when we introduced her to a cat. Today Bomee (now going by Essun) is enjoying life in Seattle with her new family! – Mike Forrest
Threepence nka Penny with her new family: Stefanie with her dog, Reno, Grandson Nathan, Mom Edeltraud & Dad Mason, Granddaughter Sydney
This adoption was a family affair. We had three generations on hand along with their Australian Shepherd Reno looking for a new greyhound companion. We introduced a couple of our boys first, but they didn’t work out as well as we hoped. So we tried out one of our girls and it went great! And now they have an Australian Shepherd and an Australian Greyhound – Threepence, now known as Penny! – Mike Forrest

These adopters are long time GPI adopters and volunteers. They have been fostering this little guy for the last month or so, working with him to help build up his confidence. Well as you know sometimes fostering turns into something more, and that’s exactly what happened here. So let’s all welcome our Hawaiian pup Ed into his new forever home where he is joining another Hawaiian girl Biscuit who they adopted a year and a half ago! – Mike Forrest
Jonathan with his new family, Francis, Charlotte, Bryan, Elizabeth & Paul.
A family with four kids came in looking for a fun family dog. We have some of those! We tried introducing one of our young puppy-age dogs but he was maybe a little TOO fun. They also got to meet one of our calmer greyhounds, but they were hoping for a ball player and this guy wasn’t really interested. The lucky dog that they ended up bringing home with them is a super fun boy from the American Lurcher Project who loves to play with a ball and even brings it back to you sometimes: Jonathan! – Mike Forrest
