Please contact Moira (fastpaws1998@gmail.com) for more information about this pet.SlyTag No: 5859Registered Name: GEZ Sly DogBreed: GreyhoundDate of Birth: June 8, 2012Color: BlackCat Trainable: NoDog Friendly: Ok with greyhounds, Ok with small dogsKid Friendly: UnknownLocation: Kennel (Woodinville)Comments: Sly is a shy guy and a gentle soul. He would do best in a home with another happy-go-luck dog who can show him the ways of the world. Once Sly knows you and is comfortable, he is a happy and playful guy. Sly will need a home without cats. Foster home update: Sly is a quiet and gentle soul who is a bit timid and a little skiddish. He has only been in his foster home a short while but with consistent love, patience and respect, he is slowly coming out of his shell. As Sly warms up, he gets more and more comfortable, shows increased curiosity and seeks out more and more attention. Sly will need someone who is willing to let him grow and blossom at his own pace. He does great in the car and great on walks. Due to his shy nature, he is a bit nervous at the beginning of walks but settles down with in a few minutes and walks nicely on leash with gentle guidance. Sly prefers the company of other greyhounds, and would probably do best with another dog.

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.

He is calm around the house, but there are also those delightful, playful moments where he pulls the toys out and he is spinning around the family room playing. He is not a dog for the first time dog owner, and you need to know when to push and when not to with this boy, but once Bill knows you and is comfortable, he is very affectionate and eager to please.

Venti Tag No: 5580 Registered Name: None Age: 5 Color: White/Black Cat Friendly: No Dog Friendly: Unknown, not small dog friendly Kid Friendly: No Location: Woodinville, WA (Kennel) Comments: Venti is a quiet, friendly girl once she knows you. She is playful and too darn cute with the toys. She is learning to be affectionate and is quite the leaner once she knows you. Venti has the most beautiful eyes that just melt your soul. While Venti is not for the first time dog owner, she is oh so darling and whoever adopts this wonderful girl will be rewarded ten fold. Venti did not come from the US racing circuit, but is definitely a greyhound. We are not sure how she will do with other dogs and will be testing her with various dogs over the coming weeks. Venti will need a home without small dogs, cats and children. Kennel Update: Venti absolutely loves the toys and will chase a ball and bring it back to you. She is a fun, upbeat girl. She would prefer to be the only apple of your eye. Venti is affectionate and loving once she is comfortable with you. She will need a dog savvy home and will make an absolutely wonderful companion. Kennel Update: Venti is very playful – loves to play ball. She loves all toys. Venti is very affectionate but doesn't like to be smothered. Venti is sweet, beautiful and stunning. She can be anxious in new circumstances, so she needs a calm, clear leader to guide her and build up her trust. She would do best in a calm household. Venti is doing beautifully on our weekly Brightwater walks – she is learning to relax and enjoy the walks now and walks very well on leash. She rides well in the car.
