Shams is a 5-6 year old greyhound that was found in a ditch with old wounds and old stitches undone. He had to be carried into the car and we honestly thought he would not survive. He spent over a month in the vet hospital and as soon as he could get out, we could not believe the transformation. He is a lovely greyhound that would do well in a home with kids. He is very loving and attentive to kids as young as 4 years old. His foster home in Dubai is a family with a young son and whippets and a senior italian greyhound. He is fine with other dogs, especially whippets, salukis and greyhounds and is crate trained. He has done well with the other dogs in the pack at King’s Kastle. He is not cat-safe. He loves his off leash runs (in a fenced area) and is easy to train. He loves his food! He is fairly calm and easy at home. He should be fine as an only dog – like most greyhounds, he is people-oriented although he probably is comforted by the presence of other dogs.
Tarban is a 9 month old saluki who was rescued in Abu Dhabi shortly before he boarded the flight to the United States. He has had his ears cut off and is very shy, but he is a beautiful dog and is very snuggly when he feels safe. He is very skittish with all of the new sights, sounds, and smells, and has not had any leash experience. He will need a sighthound-savvy adopter with lots of love and patience. Cat testing is under way.
Mutt Lynch will be debuting a new 2014 North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon with a custom greyhound wine label (image created by Patrick Holt), and adapted especially by Mutt Lynch to celebrate and honor the work we do.
For each $25 bottle of this wine sold, 25% of the purchase price will be donated to Greyhound Friends for Life. It’s a fantastic wine and an even more awesome label – most of you will recognize it from our t-shirts!
