While we are thrilled to have our new kennel up and running, we still endeavor to place senior and/or greyhounds needing a little more personal time and care into foster homes.  Our foster homes consist of experienced volunteers and greyhound owners who provide shelter to greyhounds in their own homes giving them love, tender loving care, transport to vet appointments, grooming and anything else they might need while they are in our system.

Most dogs that are “Forever Fosters?” are dogs that are seniors who have been in our system for a while, sometimes years, or dogs that have special needs above and beyond what many adopters can handle.  Most “Forever Fosters?” are available for adoption, but generally they are only suitable for experienced adopters or those with a very specific home environment.

Our “Forever Fosters?” are listed below.  They are surrounded by people who love them and have plenty of canine companionship at all times. 

If you can't adopt a dog and you'd like to help, please sponsor one of our “Forever Fosters?”. Your sponsorship donation will help defray the costs involved in making our long term fosters comfortable while they wait for their forever homes.

If you're interested in adopting one of these dogs, please contact the Vice President closest to you listed below or click the "Contact for more information" button included with each dog.

Alex

Alex

Alex
Alex
Tag No: 4476
Registered Name: ALE Big Valley
Date of Birth: February 28, 2003
Color: Black
Cat Friendly: No
Dog Friendly: Ok with greyhounds, ok with some small dogs.
Kid Friendly: Yes (see comments)
Location: Foster home
More larger photos:  Yes, click the links in Alex's comment area
Comments: Alex and Zoey were in a home together and returned through no fault of theirs. Alex loves to play and give kisses. He is a goofy, easy going boy and loves everything and everyone. He loves the stuffies. Alex does have a tendency to jump when he is excited, so he might do best with older children. He is periodically a barker and digger, so he would do best in a home with a yard rather than an apartment. Alex needs a home with another dog and without cats or small dogs. Alex is a tad overweight, so he is on a diet and exercise program. This boy will just warm your heart.  Kennel Update: Alex is now trim and slim. He is a fun loving, happy boy. He is very affectionate. Alex needs a home with a good pack leader. Once he knows that he doesn’t have to try and lead he is wonderful. He has done well at turnout with other confident, silly girls. Alex loves to play ball during turnout.  Kennel Update:  We just love Alex!!  He is a sweet boy and is so deserving of his forever home.  We take him out on walks and he walks well on leash.  He likes nothing more to sniff and enjoy the outdoors.  This boy would like nothing more than a home with a yard to call his own. Foster home update:  Alex is in a foster home with several other greyhounds and a Cavalier King Charles. Alex settled in quickly finding his favorite spot by the fireplace to nap. He loves to go for neighborhood walks, is very good on the leash and makes many friends along the way. He has the most expressive eyes, giving you looks of love.  He takes direction well and knows several commands.  He sits for treats and for his meals and will go to his bed and shake. He climbs stairs like a champ.  Alex needs a confident owner to make house rules.  He is a lover and gives kisses.

Kid Friendly: No
Location: Foster home

Comments: Check is sweet, happy, friendly and loves being around people. She is still very active for her age and you would never guess that she is 10 years old. Check was a brood mom and would do best in a home without children. She occasionally likes to play with toys. She has done well with other greyhounds, but can be dominant. Although she has done well meeting small dogs, we do not recommend that she live with them full time. Check is just darling and will melt your heart.  Check was our April Dog of the MonthKennel UpdateCheck loves walks and often goes with our volunteers on walks on some local trails.  She is affectionate and happy – just a wonderful lady!

Hansy

Hansy
Tag No: 5672
Registered Name: Regal Perseo
Date of Birth: April 21, 2005
Color: Fawn
Cat Friendly: Yes
Dog Friendly: Ok with large and small
Kid Friendly: No
Location: Foster home
Larger photo:  Yes, click the link in Hansy's comment area
Comments: Hansy is a sweet, gentle, loving soul. He loves to lay by the fire or go for short walks. He loves soccer balls and stuffed toys. Hansy needs a home without children as he is space and food protective. He has lived in a home as an only dog and is now in a foster home with other greyhounds and he does fine – he just needs his own space for lying down. He is very affectionate and loves men. Hansy has some old track injuries, which don’t hold him back, but he would do best in a home without a lot of stairs and with a yard. Just a love bug!!

Tag No: 5495
Registered Name: Sunsands Perky
Date of Birth: May 29, 2002
Color: Black
Dog friendly: OK with Greyhounds, unknown with others
Cat friendly: Unknown
Kid friendly: Unknown
Location: Foster home
Comments: Jada is a sweet loving girl with big stand up ears. She likes to be close to her person.  She and Yoda were turned into us as their family couldn't care for them. They were very bonded and would not do well without each other so they were placed in the same Forever Foster home. Unfortunately, Yoda passed away recently.  Jada will remain in her Forever Foster home where she is much loved.

Sunny Sunny
Tag No: 5246
Registered Name: Bella Fine Art
Date of Birth: Dec 14, 2001
Color: White/Fawn
Cat Friendly: No
Dog Friendly: Ok with greyhounds, not with others, see comments
Kid Friendly: No
Location: Foster Home
Larger photo:  Yes, click the links in Sunny's comment area
Comments: Sunny was in a home and returned through no fault of hers. Sunny is beautiful. Sunny is very sweet, loveable and loves attention and to cuddle. She is good with toys and loves walks and car rides. Sunny does not like to share, so would do best in a home where she is the only apple of your eye or one other greyhound. Sunny does ok with other greyhounds, but not other dogs. She will need a home where someone is home a fair amount of time, although she has been left for 6 to 7 hours at a time. She will also need a home without cats or children. Won't you give this beautiful older lady her forever couch?

Color: Brindle
Cat Friendly: No
Dog Friendly: Ok with greyhounds, unknown with others
Kid Friendly: Unknown
Location: Foster home
Larger photo:  Yes, click the link in Lady's comment area plus check out her videos below!
Comments: Lady has become a kennel favorite.  She is a brood mom and is now, well deservedly, retired and enjoying life. Lady is very playful and loves the stuffed toys. She is friendly, easy-going, playful and delightful. Lady will truly melt your heart - just a wonderful, wonderful lady! Lady will need a home without kitties. Lady and Zora are turned out together and do very well together It turns out that Lady and Zora are sisters! No wonder they look so much alike!;Foster home update: I have the distinct pleasure of fostering these two (long-lost and recently reunited) sisters. Zora had been in a home before but for Lady it is a new adventure. They had a ball running amok in my yard and they are really a team. The doggy door was conquered without any help from me ;-)) They blend into my pack seamlessly and have adapted to home life beautifully. They ride well in the car (I think Lady would like to try driving) and are great on a walk. They are a pair and need to stay together. What sweet girls!  (In the second photo, Lady is on the right.) There are many more photos of "The Sister Act" on their past Dogs of the Month feature!!

Tika
Tag No: 5288
Registered Name: Savvy Jody
Date of Birth: March 5, 2008
Color: Brindle
Cat Friendly: No
Dog Friendly: Ok with large and small
Kid Friendly: Unknown
Location: Foster home
Larger photo:  Yes, click the links in Tika's comment area
Comments: Tika is the most darling little girl. She is affectionate, happy and will just melt your heart. Tika was returned to us in not very good health. Tika has a myriad of health issues, but is such a happy soul. Everyone who meets her just loves her. And she has been so good through all her vet visits and treatments. Since her return she has been diagnosed with Babesia and Valley Fever. Kennel Update: We are treating Tika's Babesia and her Valley Fever. We are also working with a Health Touch healer, an acupuncturist and chiropractor to help her. We are blessed to have so many of these individuals donate their services or part of their services and so many volunteers being willing to work with her as well. We are slowly getting some weight on her. Her medical expenses are still quite large, as you can imagine. Won’t you help us help Tika by sponsoring her. MEDICAL HOLD

Zoey

Zoey
Tag No: 4419
Registered Name:  NS Lisa Labelle
Date of Birth: April 1, 2002
Color: Black
Cat Friendly: No
Dog Friendly: Ok with large and small
Kid Friendly: No
Location: Foster home
Comments: Alex and Zoey were in a home together and returned through no fault of their own. Zoey is darling and petite. That face of hers will melt your heart. She is a leaner and a lover. She can be a little timid at first. She can be a little bossy once she is comfortable, but she is just a sweetheart. The poor baby had to have most of her teeth removed, but she does just fine with some softened food and some loving. Zoey would do best in a home without stairs and some runners on those smooth floors. Zoey does not appear to have separation anxiety, but she has always been with Alex in recent years. Zoey does fine with large and small dogs, but has not lived with any other than Alex. Zoey needs a home without cats.  Foster home update: Zoey is doing well. She has definitely come out of her shell. She likes to be queen bee with the other dogs. She enjoys coming in and going out a lot and likes to have the door opened for her. She will let you know if there is anything moving outside, so she may do best in a house with a yard rather than an apartment.

Zora


Zora and Lady

Zora
Tag No: 5478
Registered Name: Dominating Dodgs
Date of Birth: January 17, 2003
Color: Brindle
Cat Friendly: No
Dog Friendly: Ok with greyhounds, see comments
Kid Friendly: Yes
Location: Foster home
Larger photo:  Yes, click the link in Zora's comment area
Comments: Zora will just melt your heart. She is an absolute sweetheart. Those eyes and that face are just too adorable for words. Zora has lived in a home for the last approx. 7 years and was turned in to us through no fault of hers. Zora is gentle and happy. She absolutely loves to play with tennis balls and she loves walks. She has lived with another greyhound, but he passed away two years ago. Since then she has been an only dog, but has not often been left alone. She does fine with other dogs out on walks, but has never lived with a small dog. She does well at turnout with the other dogs and she could be Lady's twin - it is hard to tell them apart. It turns out that Lady and Zora are sisters! No wonder they look so much alike! They are turned out together and do very well together. Zora needs a home without cats and is used to a house with a yard. Zora has lived with young children and did fine with them, although she was not allowed to interact with them too often. Won't you give this precious darling girl a forever home? Foster home update: I have the distinct pleasure of fostering these two (long-lost and recently reunited) sisters. Zora had been in a home before but for Lady it is a new adventure. They had a ball running amok in my yard and they are really a team. The doggy door was conquered without any help from me ;-)) They blend into my pack seamlessly and have adapted to home life beautifully.
