Sammie

Born: May/2004
Color: Fawn
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
Sammie is a beautiful fawn with a black mask. He is 6 years old. Sammie is a very shy, sensitive boy and is easily startled. You must never raise your voice at him. He must go to a quiet and gentle home. When he is stress, he withdrawals, has GI upset and reverts to his pre-adoptive kennel behavior. Sammie would do best with another greyhound in the house. He is currently enjoying his two foster greyhound sisters. He enjoys rice, chicken and green beans. He loves his large stuffed animals and is not much of a chewer. He enjoys hide and seek with you. He sleeps on the bed, but will not get up on the sofa or chairs. He knows the commands "go lay down" and "go potty." He is learning the use of a doggie door. His ears perk up when he sees rabbits or lizards on his walk. He pulls slightly on the leash.

Rachel

Born: Apr/2008
Color: White/Brindle
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
You will never meet an ugly greyhound. It’s just not possible. Greyhounds are elegant and unique and some have distinctive markings. Roll the drums – here I am. I’m Rachel, a white female with brindle markings. Even one of my eyes is brindle, so you can’t mistake me for any other hound when we romp at the doggie park. I’m an easy-going gal that enjoys affection. I’m learning to play with toys – WOW – what a blast. I never imagined how great life would be after racing, but I’m getting into the swing. I’m an affable gal that went through cat testing with no problem. Sure, they smell different to greyhounds, but if they don’t bother me, I don’t intend to mess with them. Perhaps we could play hide and seek around your couch – ya think? I just need a home with people who will love and take good care of me.

Natalie

Born: Mar/2006
Color: Black
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: No
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Natalie is small but has a BIG personality! She is full of enthusiasm & curiosity about everything, and she is very affectionate – quick with a kiss or a snuggle. She’ll follow you and keep you company; no matter what chore you’re doing, she just likes to be close. She loves to fetch and plays well with other dogs. She responds well to training, learning quickly and with gusto! She would do really well with an active, athletic family that will play with her daily, and she would be great with kids 6 years & older. She will blossom under calm assertive leadership in which boundaries are gently but firmly set, but still with freedom to express her joyful spirit. If you need a greyhound that will make you laugh and then lay in your lap, she’s the one for you!

Lyla

Born: Dec/2007
Color: Black
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Lyla is extremely shy and a little fearful of men, but is gradually emerging from her shell through her foster mom’s patience and love. Lyla lives with other dogs and cats and gets along well with all them. She’s housebroken using a doggie door, eats well, and is in good health. Lyla does not need to be crated as she’s very well behaved in the home. On daily walks, the foster mom uses a harness rather than a leash. Lyla loves being touched and cuddled so grooming is a breeze, as long as the ears are cleaned gently. Lyla knows her name and will come slowly when called. Lyla loves being outside and plays bow and bark so her foster mom will roll her a ball. Raised hands will scare Lyla, so the ball is never thrown. Lyla needs a quiet home with gentle people and low activity.

Corky

Born: Jan/2007
Color: Fawn
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: No
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Corky is a confident, friendly dog that enjoys her morning playtime. She loves people and kids and possibly prefers men. Corky likes to relax outside on the patio and watch the world go by. While Corky has lived harmoniously with a cat, she cannot be with small dogs. When she gets excited, she becomes dominant and could injure a small dog. However, she gets along well at the doggie park with the larger dogs. Except for the vacuum, Corky is usually unfazed by loud noises. She can be left alone for a while without becoming anxious. Corky is well behaved in the home, is not crated, and does not beg for food or counter-surf. She is mostly housetrained without a doggie door. She will bark if the doorbell rings or at wild life roaming around the desert on the other side of the fence. Car rides with her head out the window, and long walks are favorite pastimes, but tossing and hoarding toys is her number one passion.

Dibby

Born: Aug/2006
Color: Fawn
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Dibby, recently placed in foster care, is thriving in a home environment. She still has some puppy energy but is being trained not to jump and learn what’s hers to chew and what’s off limits. Dibby is housetrained but sometimes has accidents if her foster is away from the home for more than 7 hours. Dibby sleeps next to her foster’s bed and enjoys being held on her foster’s lap. She will growl while chewing on a bone if she thinks someone is going to steal it. Dibby does not need crating as she is not destructive in the home and doesn’t mind being left alone with her doggie room mate. She barks moderately, usually at loud noises, but does not show fear. Dibby enjoys riding in the car, walks well on the leash, and is healthy. Dibby knows her name, and is an absolute lover who enjoys tummy rubs.

Andy

Born: Mar/2006
Color: Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Kennel
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
Greetings World. My name is Andy. I’m a handsome large brindle male that’s looking to join a soccer team. No other greyhound is as nimble as I when it comes to scooting, retrieving and tossing that Kong around the play area. Watch out Mr. Beckham, I’m on your tail and, with the right contacts, I could replace you. Well, a greyhound can dream, right? Playing with Kongs and toys is now an obsession when I’m let out into the play area at the kennel. I don’t need a partner; I’m very happy playing all by myself, so I’m a low maintenance hound in the entertainment department. But I do need to partner up with a special someone that loves me to pieces and will take me on long daily walks in the cool of the day. After all, a budding soccer star needs all the exercise he can get, right?

Vika

Born: Mar/2008
Color: Black
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Vika [pronounced Veeka] is one happy, healthy greyhound that is smart, inquisitive and playful. She’s an affectionate dog that loves people, other large dogs and kids, but has a strong prey drive so she is not compatible with cats or small dogs. Vika is well behaved in the home and has quickly learned what’s ‘off limits.’ She is not bothered by loud or unusual noises and barks only occasionally – always for a reason - she is a good watch dog. She enjoys car rides, is doggie door housetrained, and walks well on the leash. Although there’s no need to crate Vika, she retreats to her crate at night to sleep, and the door is always left open. Vika knows her name and the command ‘stay.’ She’s a ‘girly girl’ pooch that loves to be groomed. Vika will do best in an active household where she is included in family events.

Max

Born: Oct/2007
Color: Dark Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Max is a young, loving, sociable dog. He will occasionally growl if he thinks his bully stick is about to be snatched, or another dog hovers while he’s eating. Max walks well on the leash, uses a doggie door, but occasional accidents occur. This greyhound shows no signs of aggression to people or other dogs. Thunder storms and other unusual noises do not disturb this boy, and he can be left alone with his doggie companions without becoming anxious or destructive. Max enjoys his walks and car rides. He is crated for two hours a day and accepts his temporary confinement. No food issues have been noted, his appetite is normal, and he’s in good health.  Max is not resistant to a grooming regime. He knows his name and comes when called. Max would do best in a home without small children or cats. He’s not cat friendly.

Mandi

Born: Jun/2006
Color: Red Brindle
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Sweet Mandi is nicely settled in her foster home. She tries to play with the family cat but kitty is not particularly responsive. Mandi is not shy around people or other dogs and doesn’t whine or get upset when left alone for a few hours. Mandi is crated for no more than two hours a day and naps or sleeps in the crate at night with the door open. Her favorite game is to transport toys from one room to another, then pile them up in her crate, and lie on them. Mandi is healthy, rides well in the car, ignores loud or unusual noises, and barks very little. She is housetrained without a doggie door. Walking is her time to explore the world and her inquisitive nature makes her pull on the leash, but this will pass. She knows her name and the commands, ‘lie down’ and ‘leave it.’

Troy

Born: Jan/2006
Color: Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Troy is blossoming from a shy boy into a loving Velcro greyhound. He needs a gentle hand, a soft voice and much petting to reassure him that he’s safe. This will help him gain confidence until he’s fully adjusted to home living. Troy would do best in a home with another medium or large size dog and people who are around most of the time. He will not do well if left alone for extended periods. Loud voices, thunder and heavy traffic noises startle him a little. When walking, his fosters recommend using a harness and short leash for better control instead of a Martingale collar in case Troy gets spooked. Troy likes kids, enjoys his car rides, and is house trained with a doggie door. Troy knows his name and accepts crating for no more than 4 hours a day.

Rowdy

Born: Jul/2008
Color: White/Red
Gender: Male
Housing: Kennel
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
I’m Rowdy and I’m eager for freedom. I’m a medium boy, white with red spots, and I jump with glee when someone approaches my condo. It’s hard to connect through the bars, but I keep trying. I will love my walks during the coolest part of the day, cuddles that make my tail wag, and being a member of an active family. I’ve heard that greyhounds can play throw and catch, and I’m sure I can quickly learn that game. I imagine speeding around a doggie park and watching the jaws of other canines drop in admiration and disbelief. Yep, that I can do but, when I’m spent, it would be fabulous if I could return to a home where I’m loved, take a nap, and then get served breakfast. It sure would be nice to be the canine King of the household with a doggie bed all my own.

Rio (girl)

Born: Aug/2005
Color: Black
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Rio is a confident, healthy female greyhound that fears nothing. She loves to be with her foster guardians and follows them around the home. Rio is slowly adjusting to living with a cat but when her fosters are absent from the home, or it’s time for bed, Rio is crated as a safety precaution for Kitty.  Rio barks very little and is house trained without access to a doggie door;  her fosters are home most of the time. She loves her walks, does not pull on the leash, is an enthusiastic car passenger, has a healthy appetite and no problems have been observed with any particular foods or treats. Rio graciously accepts grooming, knows her name and several basic commands: ‘go outside and potty’ ‘lay down’ ‘come’ and ‘leave it.’ Rio is a cuddle bug that loves to play with toys and give kisses. She is ready for adoption.

Boots

Born: May/2006
Color: Brindle
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
When I hear "Hi gorgeous" I naturally think someone is speaking to me. I’m one gorgeous brindle gal with white feet; hence my name Boots. Someone with a cat took me in to foster. Big mistake: the poor woman could not sleep because she knew I wanted to stalk and pounce on kitty. I have a high prey drive so living with cats and small dogs is out.  But I get along just fine with other greyhounds or bigger dogs. I enjoy being around people and thrive on affection. I’m back at the kennel just waiting for another opportunity to move into home living. For someone that prefers larger dogs, I will make a loving fur companion. Another larger pooch as a buddy would be great. I’m fed up with kennel life and yearn for my own doggie bed and toys. Please take me home to live with you.

Aiden

Born: Jul/2008
Color: Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Aiden can be a little shy until he gets to know you, but he has done well with people and other dogs at tabling and the doggie park. The vacuum startles him initially, but he quickly settles down. His favorite place to snooze is under his foster’s desk. Aiden barks very little, rides well in the car, and does not pull on the leash. Aiden looks forward to his walks and if you hold out his leash, he will wriggle into it immediately. Aiden is a healthy dog with no food issues. He reacts well to grooming and has learned the commands, ‘yes’ ‘outside’ ‘heel’ ‘walkies’ and ‘inside.’ His foster says he can always tell when Aiden wants to go outside so a doggie door is not needed. Aiden is attuned to his foster’s voice as his crazy tail wagging tells his foster that Aiden understands what is being said.

Wayne

Born: Apr/2005
Color: White/Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
Wayne is a large boy, white with brindle patches, currently in foster care, seeking a new home due to the recent unexpected death of his owner. Wayne is affectionate, playful and loves people. If he doesn’t get attention, he will whine, but talking to Wayne and using his name settles him down immediately. One of his new foster parents reports that, while performing abdominal exercise crunches on the living room floor, Wayne wandered in and put one paw on his foster Dad’s stomach, and then draped himself over his foster Dad’s legs and fell asleep. Goodbye crunches.  Wayne is used to living with other greyhounds, but has no experience with cats or kids. Wayne is house trained, very social, and a little mischievous. He likes to steal ‘stuff’ from purses, counter tops, or items lying around, and sneak them out onto the patio. A tidy owner will curb this habit.

Yogurt

Born: Jul/2006
Color: Brindle
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes

Status: ADOPTED!
My biography is coming soon!

Winnie

Born: Mar/2008
Color: Black
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
Hi everyone. I’m Winnie, a medium size black female, very friendly, active and affectionate. I like to know what’s going on and will trot along beside you as you move through your day. I know I will love toys and I dream of my own doggie beds – one in every room ‘cos I like to be where you are so that I get oodles of petting. I’m definitely not into cats, but I like being around other dogs and enjoy people. I can’t wait to run at a safe doggie park or go on long early morning walks when it’s cool with my special someone. While I’m no interior decorator, I know that the color black goes with just about everything, so I will complement your color scheme in every room of your home. My cell phone is charged, just waiting for you to call me, and take me home.

Spicy

Born: Nov/2004
Color: Fawn
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: No
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Spicy shares her foster home with another greyhound. Occasionally, Spicy will growl at her doggie roommate but has never growled at people. When out in public, Spicy is a little shy and sticks close to her foster guardians. No problems with anxiety when the fosters leave the home and Spicy rides well in the car, barks very little, and is completely house trained so she is not crated. No health problems or food issues have been observed. Spicy tends to pull on the leash, but loves her walks and especially enjoys chasing after a ball. Grooming and ear cleaning is a breeze and Spicy is learning to respond to her name and the command ‘No.’  Kleenex boxes need to be kept out of reach or else they will be shredded. If Spicy spots a coyote in the desert close to her home, she will ROO the Star Spangled Banner!

Rouge

Born: Oct/2007
Color: Red
Gender: Female
Housing: Kennel
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
I’m in training for the next Winter Olympics. I can do a triple axle while on the leash – no problem. I’m a potential ice princess with greyhound flair called Rouge. I’m a red medium-size female that’s energetic and good natured. I enjoy hands on contact with people and love affection. During my walk this morning, I was introduced to a goat, all alone, poor thing. My first instinct was to barge into his area so that we could play, but I was told no, this would not be a good idea. So we sniffed each other through the fence and I went on my way. I think a romp with me would have perked him up! Don’t know yet if I’m O.K. with cats, small dogs or children. But I sure love people. If you have room for a fur kid, please take me home.

Petey

Born: Jun/2005
Color: Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
Peter Pan aka Petey is a gentle, sensitive light brindle boy who needs a new home. He currently lives in the Chandler area and shares the home with 2 teenagers and 3 kids all under 3, a labradoodle and a cat. He does not care for the younger kids who are respectful but too much action and noise for him. He also gets anxious near kids out playing when he is walked (not his kids but neighborhood kids.)  Petey does well with older kids and cats. He would especially like another greyhound as a companion. His mom loves him but feels that he is unhappy and, with all those kids, he is not getting walked or the attention he needs. Can you give Petey a new home where he will get regular exercise, a greyhound companion, and a peaceful environment?

Jenny

Born: Nov/2004
Color: Fawn
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: No
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Jenny, who responds to Penny Lane, is incredibly playful and loving.  Lacking any sense of ‘alpha’ her enthusiasm, however, can initially overwhelm shy dogs. While confident, she is sensitive to correction and is food-motivated, so she learns very quickly. She seems fine around smaller dogs but her ears perk up instantly when she sees a rabbit! What’s more: she is absolutely the smartest dog we’ve had in our house! Within a week she learned 5 tricks and taught herself how to open doors (pushing & pulling) with her nose. She’s so smart, in fact, that we’re taking her through agility training (which will end June 19) to channel her brainpower. With her energy & smarts, she’ll need a home where the adopter not only offers affection & playtime but regular interaction and mental stimulation – preferably with other playful dog(s) in the house.

Betty

Born: Oct/2004
Color: Brindle
Gender: Female
Housing: Kennel
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
My personality is lively and loving. I enjoy talking with people, give great kisses and I’m house broken. I’m called Betty. I’m new to the Greyt Hacienda and back in a cage, which I don’t like. But I did get to play with Anabel in the meet and greet and that was fun. This morning’s volunteers gave me breakfast, but I didn’t eat – I’m a little down in the dumps. But then one of the volunteers hand fed me and gave me loads of cuddles. This I liked. I guess I’m going through an adjustment period. I’m ready for a permanent home without cages and people will consider me part of the family. Once I feel loved and wanted, I will feel so much better. Do you have room in your heart for a sweet loving greyhound like me?

Berrington

Born: Sep/2008
Color: Fawn/Gray
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Berrington is a sensitive, loving greyhound. Shy and tentative, it takes him a while to trust someone but, once he does, he’s devoted. He is initially afraid of men and does not like quick hand movements. He gets along well with other dogs, regardless of breed and size, and has been introduced to a two-month year old baby without much reaction. As he is not destructive in the home, Berrington is not crated. He is not thrilled with car rides, but he loves his daily walks and is good on the leash. Berrington has learned to play with toys, rarely barks, and does not beg for people food. He stands near the sliding glass door when he wants to go out. Berrington knows his name and will slowly come when called. He needs a quiet home with special people to build his confidence and bring out his loving nature.

Ashly

Born: Oct/2006
Color: Brindle
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Ashley is one amazing dog. Not the least shy, she lets everyone pet her, including toddlers. Ashley has a sweet personality and gets along well with two cats and a nine pound dog in her foster home. No problems being left alone for a while, no fear of cars or the vacuum cleaner and rarely barks. Ashley is housetrained, never crated, not destructive and doesn’t jump on furniture. No health problems or digestive issues with particular foods. Ashley enjoys a casual walk and is good on the leash. She knows her name, comes when called, loves car rides and the doggie park but will bark at males who try to get too familiar. Ashley prefers to sleep with her toys and in a space in the bedroom where she can see her caretakers. She would do best in a home with a yard and a doggie companion.

Sultan

Born: May/2008
Color: Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: No
Status: ADOPTED!
I’m Sultan - a handsome dark brindle boy with a sweet disposition. I was listening to ROO rap on my iPod when suddenly my ‘condo’ door swung open and the volunteer told me it was time for exercise. WOO HOO, I was all over that. Did a few sprints around the meet and greet and then I was ready for breakfast and a stuffed Kong. To my amazement, when I returned to my ‘condo’ all the rugs had been changed, the ‘condo’ was clean and I had a biscuit waiting for me. Now this is the life fit for a Sultan. However, the greypvine tells me that loving people will take me into their home where there will be no bars and I will become part of a family. My own doggie bed, toys, long walks and lots of affection. Awesome. My iPod is packed - come get me!

Seth

Born: Aug/2006
Color: Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Kennel
Cats: No
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
My name is Seth. Weighing in at 8l lbs, I’m a loveable goof ball that’s easy to handle, loves people, gets along well with other greyhounds, but I’m not fond of cats. Why they don’t do their business outside like us greys is beyond me. I’m well behaved and I was my trainer’s favorite pooch. Now that I’m retired, it’s time to find a permanent doggie bed and become your favorite pooch. I’m a handsome brindle fella and you’ll be proud to walk me through the neighborhood ‘cos heads will definitely turn – in my direction. I know that I should not get up on furniture and drinking from the toilet is a huge No No. But if you have a luxurious couch that constantly calls my name, it’s gonna be tough. How ‘bout this – you find me a couch with my name on it – now I really like that idea.

Iron

Born: Sep/2007
Color: Black
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: No
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Iron is a charmer. Always happy and affectionate, he greets his foster mom at the door. Iron is practically house broken and is not destructive in the home when left alone for a few hours. He has mastered the joys of playing with toys and sometimes, when mom returns home, she finds a toy on the couch. Mm, wonder how that got there? When doggie sat by his foster aunt and three other dogs, no growling from Iron when it’s time for chow. He walks well on the leash but is always on the lookout for desert critters he’d like to chase. He gets along with other dogs at the doggie park and, with supervision, is cat tolerant. Iron attended Career Day at a local elementary school and was a huge hit with the kids. He would do well in a home with kids and another dog for furry companionship.

Farley

Born: Feb/2006
Color: White/Black
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Farley is a sweet, gentle dog that is compatible with cats and small dogs. When first walking with non-greyhound canines, he would try to avoid them, but now accepts them as walking buddies.  Farley is house broken without access to a doggie door and is not destructive in the home, so crating is unnecessary.  He’s learned to play with toys and enjoys Frosty Paws doggie ice cream and chomping on bully sticks for dental health.  Farley is always happy to see kids on his daily walks and would do well with a family with children. He walks well on the leash and does not appear to have a prey drive, although a large hopping Jack Rabbit will get his attention and make his ears perk up. His appetite is good and no food issues have been noted. Farley is affectionate but not needy, and enjoys hanging out with his people.

Ginger

Born: Dec/2003
Color: Brindle
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: No
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Ginger is charming, independent and affectionate, but not needy. This is a happy tail wagger that gives kisses. She’s experienced in home living and is thoroughly house trained in all respects. Initially shy with new people, Ginger warms up when she gets to know them. No fear of vacuums, cars or loud noises and she barks very little. Ginger enjoys car rides and daily walks, but zig zags, so she’s walked using a harness. She can be left alone for a few hours without becoming anxious. Ginger responds to her name and obeys the commands: ‘lay down,’ ‘out,’ ‘no,’ ‘wait’ and ‘stop.’ Ginger is in good physical health, no foods seem to bother her, and she tolerates grooming without fuss. She would do well as an only dog or with another calm dog.
