Adopted Whippets & Greyhounds - pg 2

past adoptions and stories...

Boyscout, Greyhound, Male
BOYSCOUT is a young, 10 months to one year old male Greyhound. He is the real deal. His new dad had a sudden job transfer and couldn't move with this dear boy. Boyscout now has a great new home.

GHOST, Greyhound Cross, Male
Ghost is still a baby, less than a year old. He is a lurcher: a mix of sighthounds. Sighthounds hunt with their eyes instead of their noses and are what we know as racing breeds. This dog is particularly appealing, loving and large. He is what Greyhound people call a "fuzzy". Adorable, sweet and everything these breeds are known for. Ghost is now lounging by the koi pond (and occasionally falling in) - living the good life.

Frosty, Whippet, Male
Frosty is a pure white 6 month old male Whippet. He comes with huge dark eyes, a beautiful black nose, a nice pedigree and some baggage all of his own.

Theo, Afghan, Male
Theo is a 4 year old purebred Afghan. He has been stripped down, the photo shows him in full coat. He is black and tan and is flying to a new home in San Francisco.

SANDY, Greyhound Mix, Female
Sandy is a young adult female Greyhound X Irish Wolfhound.

Update 03/06:
It has been exactly one year since we adopted Sandy, aka Skylar Lee, and we wanted to convey our utmost thanks for bringing her into our lives! It has been a wonderful success story. Almost from the beginning, she came and seemed to take her place. She and Rory never - and I repeat never - fight. I think he is the boss. Having said that, she seems to get practically everything she wants from him - and us.

She has been obedience and rattlesnake trained. She plays ball and catches a frisbee. She'd like to be a lap dog, but is content to lay on the couch in my daughter's room or on the chair in the spare bedroom. She has dog beds when it occurs to her that she is a dog!

Steve, Beth, Kelsey, Rory and Skye/Sandy Lee

TEENY, IG Cross, Female
