11/16/2018: Alma is a sweet little girl (around 52 pounds) who responds well to her name. Her very favorite activity is eating. She gets along well with her two foster greyhound brothers. Stairs, and tile and wood floors are no problem. She enjoys going for walks and does well on lead. At a recent Meet and Greet she attended she enjoyed meeting other greyhounds and their owners but paid little attention to any of the other dogs visiting. She sleeps through the night on a dog bed in our bedroom with the other two hounds. For this petite girl, the way to her heart is through her stomach.
Amy, aka Mimi, is an exceptionally sweet girl. She loves being in the presence of people, and will happily spend her days following you around and snuggling on the couch. She does very well around other dogs, big and small, although she doesn’t have much interest in playing with them, preferring to instead play with her people. Her eagerness to please her people can, at times, make her rather energetic, but this also makes her easy to train. As an example, her enthusiasm for dinner was overwhelming, with her tail wagging wildly and her jumping up, so she quickly learned to “lay down” until dinner is ready, at which point she happily goes to her bowl with the word “okay.” She also travels well, comfortably riding in cars, interacting with new people and places, and enjoying walks without pulling.
11/16/2018: If you want to live with the perfect dog, Archie is the man for you. Archie gets along with every creature he comes across. He slept with my cat the first night in our house. He mastered the stairs to the back yard with ease. He never tries to get on the couch. He loves to be loved on, but isn’t demanding that you do so. He’ll accept any affection you send his way.
Archie went to the Irvington Halloween Festival a mere four days after arriving from Florida, but you’d never know he wasn’t a seasoned Meet-and-Greeter.
Archie has found his voice, and will occasionally bark while outside if he hears another dog barking in the distance. I think he’s trying to introduce himself to the neighborhood dogs. He likes to carry stuffies around the house. He has only destroyed one, but ...
11/18/2018: Auburn is a shy girl, but she is starting to come out of her shell. She has done amazingly well with my other dogs. She loves her stuffed animals and will take them on her dog bed and horde them. She has not had any accidents in the home. She has discovered she can counter surf, though with a gentle “no” correction she stops. She has no problem with hard wood floors. We will be working on stairs within the next few days.
8/28/2018: Blackie is a sweet boy who loves to laze around! He is a little shy at first, but once he warms up he will latch on and follow you wherever you go! While he has not had the opportunity to interact with cats yet, he does get along well with children and dogs of all sizes. He tolerates harassment from his small-dog foster brother like a champ!
After retiring, Blackie lived happily with the family of his racing owner for over a year until a change in housing made them unable to keep him. He is currently kept in a crate when he is home alone, but he is not a fan of this concept. Even in the crate, he struggles to hold his bladder for a full 8-hour workday. We’re still working on a feeding/bathroom routine to minimize this issue. Although he has excellent house manners, he was accustomed to being on the furniture with h ...
Arriving 6/10/2018: Black and white with some brindle in the black
7/16/2018: Bo is a very sweet and easy going guy. He loves to follow you around from room to room so that he is near by for pets and rubs at all times. He's been very good with all the children he has met. He can be playful , but mostly he likes to be loved on. He can do stairs with encouragement and loves to be praised. He does not crate well and may even be considered a master escape artist. We are not sure if he is small dog/cat safe. He shows a little too much enthusiasm whenever he sees a cat in the neighborhood. He enjoys his walks and does well on a leash. Someone lucky is going to get a very loving, sweet companion with this guy.
Arrived 7/22/2018: Outgoing, loves attention, playing
8/11/2018: HI! I'm Bucky. I'm 2 1/2 years old and fresh off the Daytona racing track! My foster home has been great in transitioning me into domestic life. I am a very loyal Grey to my owner. I have learned to obey commands the first time, know when feeding time is and since I like to play, I can entertain myself with toys provided to me by my family. I live with 2 cats in my foster home however other than another Grey, I don't think I would enjoy having another dog breed in my home. Apartment living would be fit for me or a family that is settled down. I love getting attention on walks and relaxing on my bed at home. I look forward to meeting you! -Bucky
Arrived 7/22/2018: Reserved, gentle, shy, lays head on leg, doesn't jump.
7/31/2018: Chancey is such a handsome fellow. He wants to be with you at all times, preferably touching. He loves going for walks and meeting new people. Any dog, cat, bird or mysterious creature we come across on walks needs to be greeted. We had one instance where he nipped at my cat, but a firm no put him in his place. He’ll carry around toys but doesn’t play with them. I imagine that will come in time.
His favorite time of day is meal time. He loves food and will try to steal food out of the other dog’s bowls. He has trained us to give him his food first. While he won’t jump up on you, he will jump up to counter surf if you have any food out. We are working on taking treats from a hand instead of making you drop it on the floor or bowl. ...
Arrived May 2018
Arrived 7/22/2018: Excitable and velcro, wants to be right with you wherever you go and whatever you're doing
9/24/2018: Elmer is a handsome boy in a tux. He is 2 ½ years old (still a pup), 79 lbs, very tall and has outrageous, goofy ears! Elmer does stairs well, but gets a little excited on hardwood floors, but is improving. He plays with toys and gets along with our three hounds. Elmer crates well - we have done up to 5 hrs. He prefers to lay on a pile of blankets in the middle of the floor -he wants to be in the center of everything - but finally moved to slumberball beds.
11/6/2018: Frasier is a handsome young man. He is very calm and sleeps plenty. He walks well on the leash and has learned to take the steps with ease. He crates well and is well house-broken. He shows minimal interest in our chickens. He has been to gatherings with lots of strangers and had no issues. He shares well with our other foster.
11/12/2018: Huck is a very gentle, shy boy. He loves people but is cautious for the first few minutes. He and his foster brothers respect each others' space and he gets along fine with the cats. He likes to go for long walks but would really like to just run and chase squirrels, so we have to look way down the road when walking him just in case there's something worth chasing. Hang on tight and a firm "NO" will distract him and we move on. He's very affectionate, has not been on the furniture, is potty trained, plays with the other pets. He does not like the crate but is fine when left alone (with country music playing).
10/31/2018: Lady is doing wonderfully. No accidents in the house or the crate. She has been crated for up to 7 hours at one time and did just fine. She is a fun loving, loving, curious girl. She will be a great addition to any family.
Additional Information: Feeding her Fromms. Walking 3-4 times a day. She will let you know when she needs out. Does well with all the dogs we meet out walking.
11/14/2018: Lady is doing very well. She is a fun loving, affectionate, curious little girl. She has been crated for as long as 9 hours and was still dry. She is eating Fromm and loves treats.she does well with all the dogs we meet out walking. She will be a great companion for any home
Just wanted to add that Lady’s skin is clearing up nicely. She looks really good now.
11/4/2018: Majestic has proven to be the biggest sweetheart with a playful personality and will be a great addition to a new family! She gets along incredibly well with our resident Boxer and they play wonderfully together. You can definitely tell she is still just a young 3 years old by how playful she can be, but she does a really good job of calming down once you let her know that playtime is over. She has yet to be around children, but I think that if the child respects her space and acts calmly around her, she'd be fine. She takes a little while to warm up to new people, but if you ignore her when you first meet her and let her come to you, she does well.
She loves relaxing in the dog bed, playing with toys, chewing on bones, and being loved on. She's been doing great in an apartment with 3 w ...
Arriving 6/10/2018: Big laid back boy
8/29/2017: Nick is a little shy when you first meet him, but warms up after he learns to trust you. He's afraid of any new situations, but with reassurance, can get through it. Once he feels comfortable, he's such a "puppy" and full of energy. He will run around the house playing with toys and loves to run in the yard, and if you're lucky you might get a kiss. He rides well in the car, crates with no problems, walks well with another grey to guide him, and gets along with my two greys and kitties.
If you have a lot of patience to earn his trust, he will make an excellent companion.
Nick recently moved to a new foster home to see how he would do in a new situation. Nick is a very sweet and loving gentleman. He would make an excellent companion for a retired lady as he ...
3/11/2018: Nim Rod, despite his name, is a very intelligent dog. He is not cat safe, small dog safe, rabbit safe, let's just say anything smaller than him safe, but does quite well with our other Grey. They are good running buddies.He has caught onto our schedule, for the most part, and learned a few commands. He is very well-mannered and learned to mind the house rules quicker than any other dog so far. eg, stay off furniture, stay out of the kitchen, dog toy vs. kid toy, etc. He knows to go to the garage door when he wants outside, and has done it many times flawlessly. He is good with kids, very gentle, and a really great dog. He even plays with stuffies tossing them in the air and chasing them, even fetches toys and dropping them at our feet. He also crates very well. Telling him to either go to bed or sa ...
11/6/2018: Ruby is a brindle female who is a spunky one and a half years old. She never raced and has a crazy tail that wags left to right, up and down and all around. She walks well on a leash and has learned to take the steps. She is great with our kids ages 4 to 9. She likes to play, but also likes to sleep. She is very interested in our chickens, but stops at the fence. She has also shown a strong interest in squirrels and smaller fluffy dogs. She still has a tendency to pick up things that are not hers.
Arrived 7/22/2018: Very sweet, hyper, barks at feeding time.
Squirt has been here just a few days and she is adapting to her surroundings nicely. She has mastered stairs, but does slide a little on smooth flooring. She is very inquisitive, affectionate and loves kids. She gets along with our other greyhounds as well. She is a little interested in cats but does back off when told "No". Other times she will totally ignore them. She might not do so well with timid cats. She is cat workable and will need to be watched. She loves to be close to people and see what you are doing no matter what room you are in. She also likes to look at the pretty dog in the mirror. She will make a loving addition to most families. She is quite the sweetie!
11/1/2018: Tamba has transitioned seamlessly from life on the track to a life of retirement. He loves to be petted, take naps, and go for walks. He gets along well with people and other dogs (big and small). He has not encountered any cats yet, but he doesn’t seem to have a very strong prey drive. He is very reliable in the house-breaking department and he will allow you to crate him while you’re gone, even though the crate is not exactly his favorite place to be. He must be watched closely while cooking and eating because he has been known to try to join in for a human meal from time to time! Overall, he is an easy-going guy who could fit in to almost any household.
Arriving 6/10/2018: Very mellow and cat safe
