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.

Tehana is a small (50 pound) girl who is very shy, but not fear aggressive.  This 3-year old is very sweet, but will require someone with patience and will provide a relatively quiet, calm environment.  She was very bonded to Finn, so having a second dog will help her again some confidence.  We’ll be doing cat testing when she settles in to her new environment.

Ginger is a 3.5 year old greyhound/Irish wolfhound mix.  This soft, fuzzy girl is a happy affectionate girl and walks well on leash.  She is in a foster home with several other sighthounds and has done well with all of them.  She was used as a hunting dog in the central valley, so we don’t know yet how she will do with smaller dogs.  Although she has lived outside in her previous home, she has had no accidents in her foster home.

Update 2/22/17.  Ginger did well with medium and large dogs in the pack at King’s Kastle.  She was not good with the little dogs and is not cat safe.  But she is a glutton for human attention and would like nothing more than to curl up on a couch with someone!

Dasher is a handsome racing dog from Korea.  He is about 2 years old.  In his first foster home, he did fine with the other dogs and the cats and with visitors who stopped by.  However, he did not like the male housemate when he returned from a visit.  We are working with him at King’s Kastle to figure out his triggers.

Sparkles is a small (38 pounds) female greyhound who is approximately 2 years old.  She is very affectionate and social and walks reasonably well on leash.  She gets along well with the other dogs at King’s Kastle.  She has met Sirius the cat on two occasions.  When he’s just hanging around, she ignores him or appears scared of him.  But when he jumps or trots off, she is very excited.  Hard to tell if it is curiosity and a desire to play or something more sinister.  More cat testing will be done.
