GPI’s Puppy Bonanza
Beautiful Naomi is a 5 year old greyhound mix. This lovely lady couldn’t be more sweet and gentle.A long story short, Naomi was pregnant and blessed us with five beautiful pups – born on June 18, 2021. There are two males (one black and one brindle) and three females (all brindle).
Thank you to their wonderful foster home for caring for mom and pups!!! And thank you to our wonderful vets at Bothell Pet Hospital who helped Naomi with a difficult birth!!!
This family knows what it is like to have a Greyhound mix puppy because they have had one of our puppies before. When I kiddingly asked them if they were interested in another, I have to admit I was a little surprised when they said “absolutely”. They came to meet the puppies and, from the beginning, one person was interested in one dog and one preferred another. It was fun to watch them “discuss” the attributes of each dog and we honestly had no idea who was going to be adopted. But we were very excited for the whole family when they told us that Aspen was the one!!
Then, a lady came with a friend to help the foster mother by playing with the puppies (isn’t that a fun volunteer job?). I’m pretty sure that when she was on her way to the play date, she had no idea that when she left, she would be seriously considering adopting one of the puppies. She even went so far as to text a picture of the puppy to her husband and I think she was pretty surprised when he said to bring it home!! The next step was for her husband to meet the puppies and watching him with the puppies was so much fun — he was like a little kid at Christmas!! We have no doubt that Alder has found himself a wonderful home!
Birch and Olive
This couple lost their last Greyhound a while ago and they decided they were now ready to have their home filled with the patter of little feet (literally!). When they contacted us, they already knew exactly who they were interested and they had a plan for how they were going to make their home the best one for their new additions. They wanted two dogs and they picked the perfect pair because these two were already not only brother & sister but also best friends!! They are absolutely going to have their hands full but they couldn’t wait to take Birch & Olive home and get started on their lives together!!
This couple has had some challenges that they have had to handle in a very short period of time in order to be able to adopt this dog. They needed to make some changes to their fencing and they took care of it in about 4 hours and they were ready to go!! Then they needed to make sure that their 14 year old Papillon, Scout, and their 8 year old Greyhound, Drusilla, were going to be happy with a new addition. Thankfully, that went beautifully!! When they came to meet this dog, it truly was just a formality because they knew that Hazel was going to be theirs before they even made the trip to the kennel!!!
