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 lady had a bulldog that she lost in March and she was really ready for a new companion. She trained for the Iron Man race and has actually done two of the half races so she was looking for a dog that was ready to be couch potato (just as she was) but also was up for some nice walks. The dog that she was drawn to was an excellent racer and she is ready for a nice couch and some serious spoiling. We think that they sound like two peas in a pod and the lady found a perfect balance of energy & laziness in Pam.
Next came a couple who lost their Greyhound to a liver disease that came on quickly and took their dog within 2 days. Even though they were reeling from the whole experience, they knew they needed to give their love to another Greyhound and they immediately called us to come find a dog. The dog needed to get along with a cat and a Chihuahua mix which is no small request! But, we found a darling little black girl – Minty, nka Piper, who was all ready to soak up all the loving this couple has to give!!
Things seem to be picking up again!! The first couple just moved here from Colorado and, now that they have settled in, they realized it was time to expand their family (especially since they left their family behind and the COVID 19 stuff has made it kind of hard to meet many people). We showed them a variety of boys and girls and they narrowed it down to one of each that they wanted to spend time with in the yard. The second dog never even got a chance to spend time in the yard — the first one was a slam dunk and nobody was surprised that they adopted one of the kennel favorites — that gorgeous (white/brindle), sweet boy Twin!!
The next family has been watching our website for a while and they have been keeping an eye on one of our sweet brood moms. They wanted to introduce her to their current Greyhound, Banksy (fka Sabbath), to see is they would get along. The family fell for our dog immediately and, after a while, Banksy realized it might be fun to have a buddy and the two dogs were getting along greyt. The family was pretty much sold on the adoption but one of them thought they should think about it a little while. Just as they were ready to leave, the one hold out changed his mind and was ready to roll. We asked him what changed and he said he looked at his wife’s face as they were walking out the door and realized that the time was exactly right to take Diva home!!! Funny how those things work out, isn’t it?
