Dibber with his new dad and mom, Joshua & Isha.
Our next adopters are a couple engaged to be married in a few months looking for their first dog together. We have a few dogs that we thought would fit their lifestyle, and all of them happened to be black boys from Ireland. It can be hard to tell them apart just looking at them, but they definitely showed off their unique personalities. The gentle soul that won them over though was one of our recent arrivals: Dibber! - Mike Forrest
Bing nka Darwin with new mom & dad, Lily & Will.
Our next adopters came a long way to meet our dogs, all the way from Calgary! Both grew up with dogs, but this is their first greyhound and first dog as a couple. They got to meet pups from all over, including the US, South Korea, Ireland, and Australia. They were able to narrow down their choices and were eventually won over by a big shy boy who recently arrived from Ireland. So our world traveler Bing (now Darwin) is now en route to his new home in Canada! - Mike Forrest
Rio with new mom & dad, Isabella & Mike.
One of our long-time turnout volunteers recently moved into a new home with a nice fenced yard and decided the time was finally right to adopt. When she and her partner came in, they already had a dog picked out, and all that was left was the difficult question of what color to pick for his new collar. Eventually they solved that problem, and so our Australian boy Rio is off to his new home sporting a nice shade of red! - Mike Forrest
Siri, nka Stella with new family, Skye & Scott.
Here’s another case where our adopters met their dog while doing kennel turnout volunteering, and in fact first found out about GPI because they are local and saw one of our Brightwater group walks. They previously had huskies, and this is their first greyhound. Doing turnout gave them the opportunity to meet most of our dogs, but I think they were won over pretty quickly to our blue girl from Ireland: Siri, now known as Stella. - Mike Forrest
