Adopt a Black Greyhound MonthAdopt a Black Greyhound Month
Artwork by Robin James
Black Greyhounds are every bit as loving and wonderful as any other color greyhound.  Many parts of the country have a hard time placing black greyhounds, but here in the Pacific Northwest we know better and welcome them into our homes.  On September 11th GPI took in a load of all black greyhounds from Florida, many of whom had been waiting for years for the opportunity for a loving forever home.  Greyhound Pets, Inc. currently has 23 wonderful black greyhounds for adoption and we’re featuring every one of them as our October Dogs of the Month!!!  Help us find these wonderful dogs their forever homes.

Anubis
Tag No: 4696
Registered Name: Heavy Ton
Age: 7
Color: Black
Cat Friendly: No
Dog Friendly: Ok with greyhounds and other large dogs, no small dogs
Kid Friendly: Unknown
Location: Carnation, WA  (Foster)
Comments: Anubis (aka Tony) is a big, strong boy. He has been in a home before. He knows how to use the dog door and is very good around the house. He LOVES to go for car rides and loves his walks. He is pretty good on leash, but has to be reminded of his leash manners when he sees something interesting. This is a boy that needs exercise. He can be a couch potato, but only after he has some exercise. Balls are an absolute favorite of his and he LOVES to play ball. Anubis/Tony needs a home without kitties or small dogs. He has done well in his foster home with the other dogs (greyhounds and non-greyhounds all large), although he has to be reminded to 'calm' every now and then as he can spin up easily. He can be a bit of a talker when he wants something or wants to tell you something. He and his foster mom have quite the conversations he is just a hoot! Anubis/Tony needs a home with a yard to play in and someone who wants to walk him. We do not recommend him for an apartment/condo. He's quite playful, loving and an absolute cutie! We do not recommend him for the first time dog owner. He respects authority and knows several commands and is always eager to please you. He also needs a home with a canine companion.

Tag No: 5077
Registered Name: Quik Linkz
Age: 5
Color: Black
Cat Friendly: No
Dog Friendly: Ok with greyhounds, not so with small dogs
Kid Friendly: Unknown
Location: Woodinville, WA
Comments: We just can't figure out why Linkz has not been adopted yet - he is such a greyt boy. Linkz is an absolute character. He has the cutest tail that goes in all directions can't seem to make up its mind whether it wants to go round and round or up and down. We've given Linkz a raised bed at the kennel and he absolutely loves it. He loves to check out new things and has the funniest, bouncy, happy run. Some of our volunteers have been working with him and his leash manners are quite good now. Linkz will need an active home and he would not make a good apartment dog. This boy loves life and will make you smile as well. Linkz has definitely matured and with a little exercise he soon mellows out and is happy to hang withyou. Linkz needs a home without kitties or small dogs. Gotta love those ears!!! Linkz loves the kiddie pool and just loves to run in and out of it and keep cool on those hot days. Linkz was one of our June 2011 Dogs of the Month!!

Dog Friendly: Ok with greyhounds, unknown with others
Kid Friendly: See comments
Location: Woodinville, WA
Comments: Sophie, BB and Jane are sisters. BB is a petite, beautiful black girl. BB is very shy and will need a calm, patient, experienced home. BB would do best in a home with another more confident dog to show her the ropes. BB is slowly learning that the big, bad world isn't so bad and has done well on outings with some of our volunteers. Once she knows you well she will slowly come up to you for some loving. She loves the kiddie pool. BB loves to run and play with her sisters or other dogs she is turned out with. BB is just too darling for words and is slowly gaining confidence. BB learns quickly. BB is still scared of men and children. She needs a home without kitties and we do not recommend BB for a home with children.

Registered Name: JJ's Sonny Ross
Age: 6.5
Color: Black
Cat Friendly: No
Dog Friendly: Ok with large, fine with small dogs at booths
Kid Friendly: No
Location: Woodinville, WA
Comments: Tiffy is a quiet, friendly girl. She likes attention, but isn't pushy about it. She loves massages. Tiffy likes to initially tell her turnout buddies off, but after a bark or two she is fine with them and does well with the other greys. Tiffy needs a home without cats. FOSTER HOME UPDATE: Tiffy is a gentle, mellow and SWEET girl. She does well with the two other greyhounds and an Australian Shepherd in her foster home. She quickly learned the stairs by following the other two greyhounds. She is so smart that she potty trained herself! Not once has she made a mess in the house. She does extremely well on leash. At booths she has sniffed small dogs, but has done just fine with them. She is not a gregarious dog, but she definitely enjoys being petted if someone will approach her. Riding in the car is not a problem at all; she settles in very quickly. She definitely enjoys her treats. Just a wonderful lady!
