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.
This adoption was to a lady that had a Greyhound a few years ago and has been without a dog for quite a while so, as you can imagine she has been missing having that wonderful Greyhound energy in her home. She has been doing turnout for the last year and, at the same time, been scoping out the dogs to see who might be a good fit for her. She found a couple of possibilities that caught her eye and as we looked at those dogs, it was obvious that the best fit was that sweet, black girl, Mary!!
Two men who had a dog with terrible separation anxiety a couple of years ago decided the time was right to get another Greyhound. We only had a few dogs that we felt fit their lifestyle (self-proclaimed “couch potatoes”), but those dogs did an excellent job of strutting their stuff and after time in the yard, it came down to two sweet boys. They chose our big red boy, Marlin and vice versa!!!
I don’t think that any of us had any doubt that this dog would be adopted by the first people that had an adoption appointment with her!! She is all puppy and she has so much happiness and love to share – who wouldn’t fall in love with her immediately. Well, her family came today and they have had lab puppies in the past, so they weren’t phased at all by taking on a 1 year old puppy. They are going to have so much fun with Grace!!!
