Join us here as our Adoption Representatives share stories from the Adoption Center. Check out our Available Dogs to see who’s still waiting for their forever home.
Trip with new dad, Mike and Min Pin companion, Buster.
A man came in with his min-pin mix Buster looking for a new companion. He said that he has been considering adopting a greyhound over the last 20 years but the time has never been right. He recently lost his other dog, a lab/border collie mix, and Buster needed a new buddy. We don’t have a lot of dogs that are good with small critters, so fortunately the first (and only) dog we showed made a great impression and got along well with Buster. So just like that, our Australian boy Trip headed off to his new home! – Mike Forrest
Wonder (right) with new sister May.
These adopters are long-time greyhound owners and GPI volunteers. They recently lost one of their two hounds to old age and decided it was time for a new friend for their girl May. She is a shy girl who needs some confidence, so we had to find another dog who wouldn’t be too overwhelming for her. We had a few candidates but there was one that stood out. He is a handsome blue fawn boy from Australia who we think will also really benefit from having another greyhound around: Wonder! – Mike Forrest
Tigger with new dad, Richard.
This adoption was by another of our turnout volunteers. He originally thought about adopting back in January, but at the time his living situation was not a good fit for a new greyhound. Fast forward a few months and a new load of dogs arrived from Australia. One of these new hounds made a strong connection with the volunteer who quickly accelerated his plans to find a greyhound-friendly apartment. That all came together this week, and tonight our Australian dark brindle boy Tigger is snoozing in their new home! – Mike Forrest
Carmen nka Nutmeg with new parents, Barbara and Cris with new sister, Coda.
A couple came in recently with a one-year-old Blue Lacy mix puppy named Coda. They recently lost their senior Dachshund and Coda needed a new playmate. They thought that one of our smaller dogs would be a better match for her, so we introduced them to several. It turned out that the boys that they met had a little too much energy for Coda, but our fun little girl from Hawaii was a great match. So Carmen, now known as Nutmeg, has a new home and a new friend! – Mike Forrest
