Dove is an extremely sensitive soul and the shyest of all of the dogs we brought in from Utah. She will need a sighthound-savvy home where the people have a great deal of empathy, time, and patience to devote to her and are home most of the time, even after COVID. Dove needs to live with another sighthound and have a small but fully fenced, escape-proof yard and an escape-proof house. This beautiful, almost 2 year-old, is very fearful of people and new situations. Her new home needs to be very quiet, calm and routine oriented. A home without cats and kids will be best. Dove is a special needs dog, prior sighthound experience is a must.  Her new home will need to be in Northern CA.

Elise is a slightly fuzzy greyhound who arrived from Korea a few weeks ago.  She finds walks very exciting and still can be a bit pully on leash.  She likes to lean up against people and get pets.  She has a high prey drive and is not safe with cats or little dogs.  She has some food aggression so a home with out kids would be best.  She should be fine as an only dog.  Elise is heart worm positive, her X-rays show no signs of damage to her heart or lungs.  She is being treated with the “slow kill” method weekly.  Elise is estimated to be 4 years old.

Adopted! Layla is a 6 year old greyhound.  She was recently surrendered by her owner because he had to move into a home that had small dogs & cats and she did not get along with them.  Layla likes to take long walks and will gladly take a few a day.  She prefers to hang out on her dog bed near people.  She will do best in a home where someone is home most of the time.  No kids or other animals.

Annette is a 4 year-old beautiful black fuzzy Staghound. She enjoys the companionship of other dogs, but is fearful of people. She is looking for a special home where the new family will give her time and patience adapting to home life. Her new home must have a fully fenced backyard and another dog to teach her how wonderful being a family member can be. A home where someone is home most of the time, even after COVID, will also be important. She has made small step in becoming more trusting in foster care. Annette has a curious, playful side. With lots of care and love she will surely blossom. A home without kids & cats will be best.   Annette is a special needs dog, prior sighthound experience is a must.  Her new home will need to be in Northern CA.

Adopted! Razza is a 1 year old female “Wadi dog” who recently arrived from Oman.  She is a medium size dog, about 35 pounds.   She started out being fairly reserved but has come quickly out of her shell.   She plays well with the 2 male Saluki’s in her foster home.   Foster mom said ” Razza is a very smart, happy girl who would enjoy a home with a yard so she can run, jump and play”  Razza tested well with the cat.

Adopted!  Dobby is a 18 week old male pup.  He is a happy playful pup.  Dobby has sooooooo much energy,  there is a small black dot in the center of his head.  We say its an “on” button, so far there is no off.  Loveable for sure.  Do you have lots of time to train this cutie?  He needs are large running space and a family that knows how to tire out a pup.

He will need a home with a fully fenced yard and someone who is home most of the time.  A home with another dog to socialize and play with would be ideal.

August 2020 Update

2020 T-Shirt Design by Christian Robinson

Although we are not able to have our annual reunion this year, thanks to COVID 19, we still wanted to have a design to commemorate the year.  We are very, very fortunate that our adopter, Christian Robinson, agreed to come up with this year’s image.  Christian adopted his black greyhound, Baldwin, in October 2017.
Christian is a well-known, award-winning illustrator of children’s books and

 an animator who has worked with The Sesame Street Workshop and Pixar Animation Studios.  He was the winner of the Ezra Jack Keats New Illustrator Award for Rain! in 2014, the Coretta Scott King Illustrator Honor for Josephine in 2015, and a Caldecott Honor and a second Coretta Scott King Illustrator Honor for the illustrations in the #1 New York Times bestseller Last Stop on Market Street, written by Matt de la Peña. 
For more information about Christian, check out this link:

It didn’t take Christian long to come up with the perfect image to capture 2020!  I know that we can all relate, and we hope that this brings a smile!

This image will be printed on the following long and short-sleeve t-shirts, sweatshirts, tank tops, and masks.

These items will be available for pre-order on the GFFL merchandise page ( until August 20.  Delivery will be in mid-September.
