Tarrad

Adopted! Tarrad is 2 1/2 years old Saluki from Dubai.  Tarrad was in a foster home before arriving in GFFL’s care.  The foster family thinks he will do best in a home with another dog.  He really enjoys the company of other dogs and plays nicely with dogs of all sizes.  He should be fine with an indoor only cat.

Mickey

We brought Mickey in from Korea. He was in a shelter with an injured left rear leg – it had probably been caught in a trap. He was also heartworm positive. He was placed in a foster home in Korea while his leg healed and he got through his heartworm treatment. He then came to GFFL, where he has been in a foster home.   Because his leg was cut off below the knee, we took him to the Sacramento VCA to see if he would be a candidate for a prosthesis. The surgeon said yes, so he was fitted with one. Mickey is a very sweet and affectionate boy, but is not safe around small dogs or cats. He lived peacefully with another large dog in Korea. He has gotten along OK with the other large dogs at the foster house, although his play style is exuberant.

Rayhan

Rayhan is a 4 year old male Saluki from Dubai.  He was in a foster home in Dubai before he came here where he lived with cats.  He has been in a foster home here and gets along with the other three dogs (2 Salukis, 1 greyhound) in the home.  Based on his experience with cats in Dubai, we would say that he is cat workable with an indoor only cat who is dog savvy and won’t run from him.  This lovely boy is very affectionate and playful and should do well with kids.  Rayhan has been diagnosed with renal disease and is on the Royal Canin renal kibble.  He will need to be on this life-long.  GFFL can help with the costs of this special diet and the supplements that he is on.

Gypsy

Adopted!  Gypsy is a 9 months old puppy.  One of her siblings had a DNA sample tested and was found to be 75% whippet, 12.5% Saluki, and 12.5% Staffordshire terrier.

She is pretty well socialized, and likes being around people.  She also plays well with the other dogs in the pack.  She was somewhat curious about the cat, but then ignored her – and the cat ignored her as well and laid down in front of her.

Gypsy will need a home where someone is home most of the time to teach all the things a puppy needs to learn and to give her plenty of exercise.

Gwen

Adopted!  Gwen is a 2-3 year old whippet mix, and is the mom of Gypsy.  We’re waiting for her DNA results to come in, but if Gypsy’s DNA results are correct, Gwen must have whippet, Saluki, and Staffy in her.  She was overwhelmed by all of the other dogs in the pack when she arrived and spent most of her time in her crate, but she is doing better and becoming more social.  She is very affectionate with people.  She is a small dog, but she does wander on leash and will need some leash training.  She did well in her first round of cat testing.
