 Hobie is a 2 1/2 year old white and red male.  He is an affectionate and playful boy who loves to chase a ball, although bringing it back is another story!  He is not cat safe and will need careful introduction to small fluffy dogs.  He walks well on leash.

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.

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.

Rio is a male, blue fawn greyhound mix. Rio is estimated to be about 3 years old. He is probably part Borzoi, which would account for his long legs and size. He does have a more typical greyhound smooth coat.

Rio has done well in the pack, but can get over stimulated and then needs to be separated to settle down.  Rio’s issue in the home is that he becomes protective of a family member and then guards them against other people.  Rio is shy and lacks confidence, but becomes a “leaner” once he gets to know you.  We know that it will take a very special, dog-savvy person to work with him.  Are you that person?
