Taco, is a very sweet handsome boy that lived for a while with small dogs but found the barking too irritating and it was as determined that a home without small dogs would be best. His first family was really sad to see him leave but wanted him and their small dogs all to be happy. He gets along with my pack of greyhounds just fine. However, it would probably be best if he was an only dog. He loves walks and everyone he meets along the way. He really wants to be a best friend and companion. Can he be yours?

Turbo is a mellow youngster who is very sweet and attentive to the people in his life. He is food motivated and should be easy to train. He is usually right next to you (sometimes standing on your feet) keeping an eye on things.

Turbo is cat safe and my cats pretty much ignore him. He rides well in the car but does not currently jump up in my small SUV. Turbo does walk well on leash but tends to crowd you.

I would recommend a “slow down” dish on a raised platform for him. He pretty much inhales food at this point and kind of chokes himself half the time. Turbo will growl a lot while he is eating. I do feed him in a separate area but I’ve noticed he growls whether anyone is walking by or not.

Turbo was returned after a brief adoption. Based on the behaviors they described and that these behaviors have not been exhibited here in his foster home we are requiring (1) Turbo have a canine companion and (2) a fenced in yard.

He does not clearly signal when he needs to go to the bathroom so he goes out when my guys do. When he goes out in the yard he usually eliminates immediately but he is not done yet. He acts like he is done - but he isn’t. You need to hang out a bit and he will wander around and go some more. A consistent schedule should help too.

Turbo is pure dog love and will be a most devoted companion.

Before retiring and becoming a broodie, Maja also know as Trouble raced in 87 races.  She whelped 3 offspring, one of which, Kendra Trouble, ran 131 races.  Since coming into our pack, she has mastered the doggy door, and gets along well with all members of the pack.  She is very loving, and is always ready for a pet or belly rub. She is not timid and will speak up if she has to.  She eats well and with gusto.  She would be at home in a house with other medium to large dogs, and teens, or by herself.

Darcy is a 5 year old small female. She has a damaged hock on her right rear leg. It does not seem to bother her, as she plays with the other greys in the yard and shows no sign of any problems. She walks and runs on it just fine. Darcy is not cat safe. she has not been small dog tested yet. She is low energy and good in the house. Likes her bed and an occasional chew bone. Uses a dog door whenever she has to go outside. Good on a leash and good in a car.

The rare greyhound that sits. Shea is shy at first, but warms up and becomes a normal dog in a couple of days.  She would follow me around all day but wouldn't let me touch her at first. She has now decided that pets are good and being hugged and kissed is really not bad. We are working with getting her to walk on a leash. She is a very well behaved girl until you bring out the sardines!  She is quiet, sweet and very, very pretty.  Come meet her at one of our Scottsdale Meet and Greets!
