Posted Breed: Greyhound. Mohican Sunset RE 33E LE 60699 Hi I'm Sunny! I love Life! Everything is super interesting to me! I have a tendency to follow people around so am what you call a Velcro hound; I just don't want to miss out on anything! I am super sweet and love attention. I get along with everyone! I warm up to cats pretty quickly, but small dogs take a while longer. I would rather not be left out of anything. I want in on all of the action!

Greyhound

A.K.A. : English Greyhound

Colors: Immaterial (includes black, gray, red, fawn, either solid or brindled, either whole colored or spotted).

Character: Greyhounds are very sociable. When indoors, these dogs are lazy and relaxed. Outside, they show their high energy and stamina for action. Very intelligent, the breed is very closely bonded to their family.

Care: The Greyhound requires only occasional grooming with a very soft brush. The eats should be checked regularly and the claws should be trimmed.

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. O Ya Beauty RE 53F LE61201 Hi I'm Beauty! I'm a sweet and shy girl, but once I warm up to you I enjoy belly rubs! My favorite things include hoarding shoes, I don't chew on them, just collect them! I have a low prey drive, am good in the house. I am what some call a tripod. Meaning I get around on three legs. I've adapted really well but I would do better in a home with minimal stairs. I also don't like to go potty on lead so I need a home with a fenced in yard. I'd do best in a home with older children as I need a calm environment. To see other hounds currently in our care please visit the Hounds in Our Care page on our website.

I have a goofy side, I like to play with toys, and I like people. I like food a lot and I'm food motivative. I tend to pull a bit when on leash but my foster mom is working on this with me. She said I did great meeting small dogs and kids on my walk today. Overall, I'm laid back, social, playful, goofy, happy, and curious. I am looking forward to finding my forever home!

I also adore people and receiving attention from them. I have a mellow disposition, am friendly, have floppy ears, and tend to have my tongue hanging out. (aka "derp") I've picked my favorite dog bed and that's where I spend most of my time, when I'm not exploring my surroundings. So far I'm enjoying retirement life and learning how to play with toys. I'm currently living with another greyhound and a cat. I still need work on walking on lead as I like to pull, but my foster mom is working with me on this. Overall, I'm a greyt fun-loving boy who is cat safe and can't wait to have my very own forever home! To see other hounds currently in our care please visit the Hounds in Our Care page on our website.

My favorite things include doing zoomies, playing with squeaky toys, sleeping in the sun, receiving ear and neck scritches, and most of all - sleeping on the couch. I'd do best in a home with other animals and people as I don't like to be alone. When I'm playing I can get a little boisterous, so I'd do best in a home with older kids.

My favorite things include food, playing with squeaky toys, dozing in the slummberball, cuddling, and playing with my foster siblings. I walk well on lead and LOVE to chase my foster brother in the snow! I get along with dogs but I would do best in a home without small dogs and cats. I can be a little vocal when left alone or put in my kennel, so I would do best in a house vs. an apartment or town home. I am very curious, a love bug, and I listen well with correction. I still need a little work on counter surfing and learning that the recycle bin is not my toy bin. Overall, I'm a very sweet and loving and look forward to finding my own forever family.
