Posted Breed: Greyhound (short coat). Gezabel, aka Kiowa Classmate, formerly Pico, is an 8-year-old brindle female born June 17, 2007. Her sire is Kiowa Sweet Trey, and her dam is Kay Quin Quantas. There are 10 races on record for her on Greyhound-Data.com, starting December 11, 2008, at Flager in Miami, FL, and ending there August 16, 2009. Gezabel is one of 9 greyhounds GALT received from a Fort Worth Animal Control cruelty case. Just like the other rescued dogs, she was positive to several tick borne diseases as well as carrying a huge load of intestinal parasites. She has been treated for all. With all she has been through, this is one happy girl - her tail is always going! Gezabel is a voracious eater, and she is a quick study, too, conquering the doggie door right away. Gezabel is not cat or small dog tolerant at this time. She would do best in a home where someone is home during the day or where she can be let outside midday. Gezabel was in a home for almost a year, but has returned to GALT due to aggressive behavior towards the small dog in the house. You can read about Gezabel's arrival and survival at GALT here. Gezabel's skin issues were greatly helped via the use of Vetericyn!

More About Greyhound Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Posted Breed: Greyhound (short coat). Julius is a two year old black male found as a stray from the west Texas town of Tulia. The Tulia animal control authorities have spent almost a year trying to catch this big boy, and on April 19, 2016, they succeeded! Julius’ right ear is 24A and his left ear is illegible so we will never know his history. He has numerous scars and his skin is patchy with some missing hair. Julius is heartworm negative but of course he arrived laden with intestinal parasites. This is a sweet, sweet boy who is a grinner!

      Breed: Greyhound-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Dallas, TX
      Posted Breed: Greyhound / Mixed (medium coat). Chance is an approximately 1 ½ year old male charcoal black/gray greyhound mix with gorgeous golden eyes. He was rescued by a good Samaritan after seven months of encouragement and efforts in the Amarillo area. Chance is very shy and hesitant about most things around him. All his medical testing is normal and he has no intestinal parasites, which is very unusual for a stray-especially one that was out this long. Chance has passed an initial cat test but has not yet lived with cats in a foster home. This is his story, written by Lynne, his rescuer: About CHANCE ...... Chance first appeared in our neighborhood during late fall 2015 although it was reported that he was running through a neighborhood near us as early as March 2015. It was reported by someone who lives in our neighborhood that Chance spent the Christmas blizzard huddled under a mesquite tree in an open field. The first time I saw him was during a winter storm last November when he was eating some food we had placed outside for other wildlife. He was sort of like a shadow ghost because of his many fears. He would run away if he even saw you looking at him from inside the house. As we began to leave food out for him, he progressed from eating a bite then running into the brush, to eating with many glances up to see if there was anything or anyone coming towards him. He was thin, so fearful, so wild ............it broke your heart. We named him Chance because he had survived so much and certainly deserved any and every chance possible. Over the first part of 2016 Chance began to appear and actually seem to seek out some human contact. Never letting you touch him but with gradual, consistent hanging out with him, Chance began to make eye contact. Over months and many, many hours of me just sitting with him, he began to follow me around in the yard and even sniffed me as I sat quietly on the ground. Still never allowing me to touch him. He began to let me feed him by hand (hotdogs) and ever so gently would take it from my hands. As he would eat his regular dog food, I would sit with him constantly reassuring him that all would be ok. Before long, he was hanging out in our yard under shade trees and especially loved to have you outside with him in the early evening and early mornings. Direct eye contact was something he now sought out and his eyes got soft looking when he looked at me. You could definitely feel he was trusting and allowing you to enter his world. This process took 7 months. When we finally were able to get a leash on him, he seemed both terrified and relieved at the same time. He was not relaxed in the outside kennel we had just completed for him. (We knew if we ever got our hands on him we had to have a secure holding spot.) As anxious as he was for the one night he was in the kennel, he relaxed when I shared the night in his kennel with him. Fears are numerous. The main one is of trucks (diesel, especially ones that bang, rattle). He is more at ease with women who speak in soft, low voices. Cell phones send him running. Wind, storms, sounds of plastic flapping all make his uneasy. Hand movements scare him. Chance is food motivated. Likes a routine and even the smallest changes are noticed. Chance would prefer to sit where he had a clear view of everything around him, no boxing this fellow into a corner. Personality traits that were fun to watch emerge were his playful, curious side. Chance would poke his head around the house to see what you were doing if you disappeared from his sight. He had a playmate of sorts....a young skunk. He and Chance seemed to have some sort of relationship that he enjoyed. They would just hang out in the yard together! From the very beginning I felt there was a good dog inside him. Looking into his eyes I saw a survivor of many hardships and most certainly he deserves a loving home where he can trust, love and enjoy life. Do we wish we could keep Chance in our family? Absolutely, but we can't. Somewhere out there is his forever home where he will both delight and return the love tenfold. Chance just needs a chance!

      rescue
      Breed: Greyhound
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Dallas, TX
      Posted Breed: Greyhound (short coat). Elizabeth was surrendered to the Animal Control officer in Tulia, TX by a coyote hunter. She is not tattooed and appears to be approximately 4-5 years old. It is obvious she has had several litters of pups. She was infested with ticks and fleas when she was picked up, so it is no surprise that Elizabeth has a positive titer to Ehrlichia Canis. She also is carrying a large intestinal burden. Treatment for both of these conditions has begun. Also of concern is her thinness as well as the cloudiness of both of her eyes. Elizabeth is being closely monitored by the caring vets and staff at VCA Preston Park Animal Hospital at this time. Once Elizabeth's vision improved, she wanted to chase the cat - we do not consider her cat tolerant. UPDATE 7/9/16 Elizabeth was seen on June 17 by Dr. Robert Munger of Animal Ophthalmology Clinic for cataracts. She has limited vision in her left eye and her right one also shows some loss. This is the result of inflammation most likely from her Ehrlichia. Medication is being administered to hopefully stop any further inflammation and progression. Elizabeth will be seen again in 30 days. UPDATE 8/2/16 Elizabeth was seen by Dr. Munger on August 2nd. There has been no further progression of the degeneration in her right or left eyes. She is getting eye drops in each eye twice a day, which it is expected to continue indefinitely at this time. Elizabeth has a negative PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) test and has completed her treatment for Ehrlichia Canis as well as all of her medical procedures.
