Join us here as Regional Vice President Kathy Kreyling shares stories from the Adoption Center. Check out our Available Dogs to see who’s still waiting for their forever home.
There was really very little for us to do with this couple. They came knowing exactly who they wanted and he was the only dog that they wanted to see. Thank heavens he lived up to their expectations … he schmoozed better than almost any dog we have had and he got along great with their Chihuahua mix, Pig. So, Banjo, nka Bailey, headed home with his new family!!
This couple recently lost their “perfect” Greyhound and they were missing that Greyhound energy in their home. We needed to remind them that their new dog wasn’t going to be anything like the last one so they needed to try really hard not to compare the dogs to her. They did a greyt job as they met a few very different dogs. When all was said and done, they took home the dog that made it clearly known that she was interested in them, Izzy (our stunning black Lurcher from the Midwest)!
This couple recently lost their older Greyhound and their remaining boy, Flacco (fka Paco), was feeling lonely. So, naturally, they thought that he needed a new brother or sister. When they got Flacco, he was a very active young boy and they were thinking they would like a dog that was a little calmer. I’m sure you’ve guessed that the dog they took home, Cane, was just as active as Flacco was in the beginning!!
This couple was from the Capitol Hill area and they needed a dog that was “easy”! We just had a beautiful fawn girl come back from a foster home where she was exposed to everything and absolutely nothing seemed to bother her. Thankfully, the potential parents and the dog took one look at each other and it was love at first sight (I can’t tell you how shocked we would have been if that hadn’t been what happened). So, Miss Cloe has found her new family and will no doubt be spoiled rotten!!
