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 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.
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!
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.
