Join us here each Monday as Regional Vice President Kathy Kreyling shares stories from the Adoption Center. Check out our Available Dogs to see who’s still waiting for their forever home.
The first of our new dogs has already left the building — that sure didn’t take much time. A couple came in to find their first dog as a married couple. There were only a few dogs that were available to be shown and they ranged from a busy puppy, a little less busy puppy, a couple of confident females and a darling, calm, almost 4 year old boy. Obviously, there was no contest — they chose our new boy, Buster!
This next man took on quite a challenge when he fostered two of our dogs from South Korea. They were a brother and a sister who definitely needed some serious help with their manners and this man was up to the task. While he was going through his training, he realized that he honestly only had enough energy for one dog so he had to make the tough choice of which one would be his. He and the girl bonded quickly and had become jogging buddies as well as general best buddies. So, he had to keep Nala!! BTW, his efforts were a big part of the reason that Nala’s brother, Simba, found his new home!!
We have learned that when someone knows what they want, they KNOW what they want. This man came looking for his fourth Greyhound and we thought it might take a little while. But, we were wrong! We brought out a pretty red girl who knew what she wanted and made it clear. She climbed up on the couch, started licking the man’s ear and neck and by the time we got her off the couch, he said, “I like this one”. We suggested he at least spend some time outside with her and after a few minutes he came in and told us she was the one! I think we should ask Jesse, nka Ziggy, to come back and give “how to get adopted” lessons to the other dogs!
