Comments: Wanda is a shy nervous girl. She will need a home with another happy-go-lucky, more confident greyhound as the companionship of other greyhounds makes her feel more comfortable. She does particularly well with the more playful, easy-going greyhounds and will run and play with them. Wanda did well in cat testing, but with her being so shy, it is hard to say how she would be once she settles in and is more comfortable. Once comfortable she is quite playful. Wanda will need a home without children. Children frighten her and she is easily startled by them. With people she knows well, Wanda will come to them and accept some loving. Wanda needs a home with another happy-go-lucky greyhound, but also someone who has the patience to build a trust with her.

Sponsor Me

Wunda Wunda is my name.
Oh boys and girls, I’m glad you came.
We’ll have fun and we’ll play games.
Won’t you play with me?

“Only my name is Wanda, not Wunda.

“I am a very petite, beautiful (if I do say so myself), 2-year-old black girl with clever eyes and an intelligent face. I may never be a social butterfly, but I will make a wonderful, calm and peaceful companion.

“I’ll do anything for a treat. Well, almost anything. I’m still a little shy at times, but foster Mom says I’ve come a long way. I used to eat treats only when they were thrown on the floor. But now I’ll take them by hand in most situations.

“I enjoyed being an ambassadog at the booths I visited with my foster Mom. I met and accepted lots of other pets and learned that kids are great, too, even little kids, especially if they have treats.

“I love long walks and an occasional romp in a big yard or the GPI dog park. But I’m also perfectly happy to stretch out for hours on my dog bed. I’m quiet and peaceful, and probably am less active than most other greyhounds my age. Except when it’s meal time. Then I eat like a Power Vac on steroids.

Wanda has shown a huge improvement since we started fostering her. She is a pleasure to have around the house and is more comfortable with pets and hugs every day. She lets us know when she needs to go outside or when it’s past dinner time. But she’s not obnoxious about it. She’s wily about seeking treats, but not mischievous. Wanda never gets into trouble.

Although she enjoys the companionship of our two mellow greyhounds, she's fine when left home alone. She seemed to be fine with small dogs. Wanda probably will do well in a home with older children. She is very comfortable with our visiting 10- and 14-year-old grandkids.

If a family with a cat is interested in adopting Wanda, we are willing to do additional tests to see how they get along.

And in case you were wondering, “Wunda Wunda” is the name of a children’s television series starring Ruth Prins that aired in Seattle between 1953 and 1972 on KING-TV.
