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.

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 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.

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.

Raleigh is a 6-year old male Scottish Deerhound who was reliquished because of the health of the owner.  Raleigh is a very sweet, laid-back guy who walks well on leash.   He needs a home where he will be the only dog.  He is not cat safe.

 Lettie is a 6 year old female from the Canidrome in Macau who arrived on January 23rd.  She is affectionate with people, but has a high prey drive. She should not live with cats or small dogs.   She is currently in a foster home with a male greyhound and doing well.  She still likes to spend time in her crate but is enjoying the fuffy dog beds too.

Update 2/20:  Foster mom say’s Lettie loves following her greyhound foster brother everywhere and hanging out with either him or foster parents.  Lettie’s ideal home is with another large dog or with someone who works from home.

Casey is a year old GSD/sighthound mix from the Placer shelter. Casey is a happy, easy going boy who has done well with the other dogs in the pack. He is a young boy, so he will need some additional leash work, but he already knows some commands, like sit, stay. He’s a smart dog!  Casey has done well in cat testing.
