Join us here 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.
This family knew which dog was of interest to them before they came. But, they had a couple of other things to take into consideration when they were making their decision — namely … their cat and their two year old Coonhound named Goose. We couldn’t do much to find out about how our dog would do with the cat at the kennel, but we could definitely see how Goose would do with her. Even though he was quite a bit younger than our girl, he seemed to understand what she needed and wanted and they got along very nicely. So, our pretty Irish girl, Donna (nka Aoife – pronounced ee-fah), found her new home and gained two new furry buddies.
This couple did their research and knew exactly what dog they wanted when they set up their appointment. They had gone on the Brightwater walks and had a greyt opportunity to see quite a few of the dogs in action and also walk some of them. They felt a connection to and fell in love with our sweet Australian boy, Ben, and it was obvious he felt the same way when they came to pick him up!!!
This woman has had quite a few of our Greyhounds through the years. She recently lost one of them and her remaining Lurcher, Letty (fka Velvet), was really having a hard time being alone so it was definitely time to add another family member. When we brought out this striking black boy, we told the lady that this guy was a little on the shy side and might take a few minutes to get his bearings, but, as it frequently happens, he made a liar out of us. He recognized that she was his new mom right away and stayed very focused on her throughout the introduction!! Now, that is how a dog gets adopted!! I don’t know who taught Stitch the ropes, but they did an excellent job!!!
