Two men came in search of a moderately active Greyhound companion and it honestly took some thinking to figure out which of our dogs would fit that description. But, we came up with a greyt list of dogs and there were actually more dogs on the list than I thought there would be. They narrowed the list down to one boy and one girl and they thought it took them quite a while to decide because they are both such greyt dogs (we really didn’t think so). When all was said and done, they decided on the beautiful little girl, Dance, who headed home with them today!
I keep saying that the best way to meet your Greyhound is by doing turnout. You get a chance to interact with a lot of dogs and get to know more about them and you often get first choice of the dogs since you meet them first. That is exactly what this couple did — they decided to do turnout and they met a sweet brood mom that just had to be a part of their family … Cindy!
This couple has been waiting for a long time to get their Greyhound and, in fact, the lady has been doing turnout for about a year to get to know the breed better. They just moved in to a house 2 weeks ago, completely unpacked & installed their fence so they came prepared to take home a dog. The lady had a favorite but the man hadn’t met any of the dogs so we showed them all the cat friendly dogs so he had a chance to get an idea of what they were like. But, when all was said and done, they went home with the dog that was the lady’s favorite — Ace.
This couple has been waiting quite a while for us to get some cat friendly dogs so, as soon as we knew which dogs tested as cat friendly, they were ready to come meet them. Since they were at the top of the waiting list, they had the opportunity to see all the possibilities and they actually knew almost immediately which one was going to be theirs because they had such a quick connection with him — Sky!!
This couple has had Whippets in the past and they came to meet our Greyhounds as well as the Whippet mixes that we have. I have to say that all of the dogs we showed them did an excellent job of showing themselves off, but one of the dogs was just way too good at schmoozing and there was no way the others could compete with her. So, it was really no surprise that the couple decided that Hope was the one for them.
