Beze is an energetic 10 month-old girl who loves to run and play with toys.  Like her brother Rocco, she walks well on leash after some initial excitement.  She has also learned “sit”, “shake hands”, and “lie down”.  She can get overstimilated and intense when playing with other dogs, but it is easy to get her to calm down.  She is fine being crated for a few hours.  Beze is a curious, playful, loving dog.  She will do best in an active family who can provide lots of exercise and who has another playful dog.  She is doing well with all of the other dogs at King’s Kastle.

Rocco is a sweet 10 month-old boy who is housebroken and walks well on leash.  He is part borzoi, which may explain why he will sit – and even shake hands!  Although he is an active boy and can become overexcited (typical puppy play), he does respond to correction to “settle down”.  He goes into his crate easily and can be crated for a few hours with no issues.  He loves to cuddle and is a loving dog.  Rocco will do best in an active family who has another dog.  He is doing well with all of the other dogs at King’s Kastle.

Oliver, a handsome 6-year old greyhound/borzoi mix, was returned to us because of severe separation anxiety after he lost his two greyhound buddies and moved into a new home.  Oliver’s Mom can’t have another dog where she is living, so it was definitely in his best interest for him to come back to us.  This snuggle-bunny needs to be in a home with another greyhound or two.  He is fine with small dogs and cat testing is underway.

Anna Banana

Anna Banana got her new name because on her way home with Mike, she carefully pealed a banana that was on the front seat and ate it!  We think that Anna is part greyhound and part lab.  She is definitely stockier than a greyhound and has a very lab-like tail.  She s the sweetest and most affectionate dog you will ever meet, although you will need to work with her countersurfing! We estimate her age to be about 6 or 7 years old.  She does well with small dogs and cat testing is underway.

Mickey is a 4-5 year old boy who recently arrived from Korea.  He was in a foster home with small dogs and did well with all of them.  We will be doing testing with Sirius the cat.  He is a happy and affectionate boy who will make a great companion!

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.

Chevy is a Saluki that was rescued in Dubai more than a year ago.  His front legs were deformed because of malnutrition and running in the desert while his bones were still forming.  He has been through 5 surgeries and can now run with the best of them!  He is about 3 years old and is good with other medium to large dogs, children, and perhaps even cats if they will stand their ground.  He was in a foster home in Dubai for over a year and is currently in a foster home with a German Shepherd in the Santa Rosa area.

Guelo is a 5-year old male galgo from Scooby.  This glossy, handsome boy is initially shy with new people and new situations, but will adapt with time and patience.  We have found that he does best with limited space – in the foster home’s large yard, he became very agitated and barky.  Once we set up a smaller outdoor space, he became much more comfortable.  He is cat-safe, very playful,  and walks well on leash.  He will do well in a quiet household with another playful dog from whom he can gain confidence and with someone with time and patience to get him through his mistrust of people.
