Whinney with new dad & mom, Jeremy & Alison.
It had been a little while since our last adoption so we were happy to see a couple come in ready to bring home a new hound. They recently lost their greyhound girl Wren, and had done their homework by meeting some dogs at our kennel open house a couple of weeks ago. We introduced them to five of our boys, some of whom they had met previously, but I don’t think any of us were surprised that they ended up bringing home an Australian boy who has been very popular among our staff & volunteers: Whinney! – Mike Forrest

A couple came in with their goldendoodle Samson looking to add a greyhound to their family. One of them had previously had a greyhound years ago, but this would is a first for Samson. Fortunately the first dog they asked to meet got along great with everybody, and after some get-to-know-you time they were soon playing happily out in the yard. We tried introducing a different hound, but it just wasn’t the same so Samson and family headed off with the latest addition to their family, Kip! – Mike Forrest
Jetty with his new mom & dad, Dorna & Max.
A couple looking for their first dog together came into our kennel open house a few weeks ago and met a bunch of our hounds. Well soon after that they got their application in and their home visit done, and they came back to adopt! They got to meet a few more dogs, but it was one of the boys that met during the open house that really made a connection with them. So they headed home with our Irish boy with the racing stripe down his nose: Jetty! – Mike Forrest
