Baby

Born: May/2008
Color: Dark Brindle
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: From cowering and hiding at the kennel, in foster care, Baby is beginning to blossom. While still a little shy and nervous around people, she will come to you when she’s comfortable and feels that she can trust you. She is well behaved in the home, doesn’t bark, is house trained, loves to ride in the car and is excellent on the leash. Baby likes to be around people and kids, and enjoys the companionship of other animals. She gets along famously with her 9 lb. canine buddy roommate and two cats. Baby would do best in a home with another dog, not necessarily a greyhound, that is confident to help her overcome her shyness. Baby has no qualms at being crated at night – she loves her own private ‘condo.’ She is healthy with no food issues and doesn’t get upset when her foster Moms leave the home.

Addie

Born: Jan/2006
Color: White
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
My biography is coming soon!

Yadkin

Born: Mar/2008
Color: Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Yadkin, who now answers to Dunn, is rapidly learning the ropes of home living. He is outgoing and loves to meet other animals and people. Dunn is house trained, loves to walk and run and does not pull on the leash. Dunn is crated periodically for no more than three hours and often sleeps in his crate during the day, going in and out as he pleases. Dunn has a hearty appetite and is in good health. He enjoys being groomed and responds to the commands: ‘stay,’ ‘come,’ ‘lay down’ and ‘get out of the garbage!’ Dunn has separation anxiety. Therefore, Dunn is now crated when the foster leaves the home for a short time. Nothing seems to bother Dunn except for being left alone.

Tyme

Born: Oct/2007
Color: Black
Gender: Male
Housing: Kennel
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
Do I walk well on a leash? Depends on how you define ‘well.’ As we strut our stuff, I like to weave back and forth, and dance a little, but my haunches don’t wander far from your legs, ‘cos I like human contact. My name is Tyme. I’m a black male, and one happy affectionate boy that loves to be cuddled and told I’m gorgeous. I’m rather tall, but not too tall for a three-seater couch, or a sumptuous doggie bed. The volunteer this morning told me I was a clean boy because I had not sullied my rugs. I’m not a slob, I told her, and would never do such a thing. I would like to be adopted by a family that views me as the youngest kid and includes me in all the daily fun. With ‘tyme’ on your side, all will be well in your world.

Tater

Born: Jan/2008
Color: Black
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: This little black beauty will be a happy presence in an active home with other dogs and people. She is curious, learns quickly and is affectionate. She already knows how to use a doggie door. She taught herself from watching other dogs a couple of times. She needs training to be taught to come and to help her overcome a couple of habits of exuberance and curiosity such as chewing up paper and jumping up on people and counters to check things out. She understands “No,” and corrects willingly. She is lots of fun to have around. She is a bit of an alpha female in that she expects to come first and gets jealous and will push through other dogs for attention. She is assertive but not aggressive and has a healthy self-esteem. She is also cat and small dog tolerant. She is an absolute joy to have around.

Dylan

Born: Mar/2003
Color: Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Dylan loves the outdoors and his daily walks. He pulls a little on the leash but is gradually improving. He can become excited when meeting new people, but he’s very good with children. Dylan is not shy or aggressive, and shows no signs of separation anxiety when left alone for a while. He is a little anxious with loud noises: thunderstorms and high whistling winds make him whine. Dylan loves his car rides and is well behaved in the home so he is not crated. He will bark to let you know that he wants to go out or come in from the back yard. He does have Pannus - requiring daily eye drops - and a sore hip. Dylan is very calm and will let you brush him and clean his ears. He knows basic commands: sit, off, outside, no, inside, walkies, and usually comes when called.

Cindy

Born: May/2007
Color: Brindle
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Cindi is a very affectionate pooch that gives kisses and loves being massaged and petted. She’s outgoing, loves people and the big dogs she meets on her daily walks. Cindi walks well on the leash without pulling, but those scurrying bunnies were initially hard to resist. After the command ‘no’ was consistently repeated, bunnies are now eye candy and not something to be chased. She is learning to play with a Kong, occasionally romps with her doggie roommate, and barks very little. Tossing the laundry is preferred over toys. Cindi can be left alone for a couple of hours without any problem, and goes into her crate during the day of her own volition. She is in good health, eats well, and is house broken. Cindi enjoys shredding paper, so her foster Mom is doggie proofing to protect her books.

Greek

Born: Jul/2007
Color: Red
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Greek is a gentle hound that’s compatible with cats and small dogs. He lives in a quiet household with other dogs and wants to be one of the pack. Greek is very shy, especially around males. When scared, he freezes, but is not aggressive. He will thrive in a quiet home with other animals for companionship. Greek is not crated because he is not destructive. He is house trained using a doggie door. When left alone, he does fine, probably because he has doggie companions. Greek is not a barker and rides well in the car. He is learning to walk on the leash but gets spooked easily, so walks need to be around quiet areas until he feels more secure. Greek tolerates grooming and is learning to respond to his name. Once he overcomes his shyness, this dog will make a fabulous fur companion for a family.

Lady

Born: May/2007
Color: Red
Gender: Female
Housing: Kennel
Cats: No
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
I'm Lady. Not one of those pretentious creatures, but a lady brimming with vim and vigor. I'm a small pooch with pretty brown eyes. I like people and give kisses to those that treat me gently and with kindness. I'm longing for a good home where I will be well cared for and my fabulous coat will be brushed regularly to keep it shiny. I just can't wait to nuzzle into a plush doggie bed all my own. The holidays are close and I would like to be with a family to enjoy the holiday season.

Windi

Born: May/2008
Color: White
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: While still in the puppy stage, Windi is smart and obeys the command ‘leave it.’  She is crated a couple of hours a day during the foster parents’ absence. Windi is outgoing and affectionate to everyone she meets and is not bothered by loud or unexpected noises. She will bark if she hears someone at the door or in the yard, or if a coyote is present. Windi is house trained without benefit of a doggie door. She is healthy and has a good appetite, without any food-related issues. Windi walks nicely on the leash, enjoys car rides, and is accepting of grooming and handling. She knows her name and will come when called. Windi loves her toys, appears to like small dogs, and doesn’t bother her kitty roommate. She is a very loving dog that will put her paw in her human’s hand for a massage.

Dream

Born: Aug/2007
Color: Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Although still a little shy, Dream is a sweet energetic boy, coming out of his shell and enjoying the benefits of home living. He’s smart and has learned to navigate stairs, loves his doggie door, rides in the car, and relishes romps at the doggie park with other dogs. He’s still a little skittish around people but, once showered with attention, he warms up quickly. He is a little competitive for attention with his doggie roommate so being an only fur kid might be good for this fabulous boy.  Dream lives with two cats and has interacted with small dogs without any problems. Dream is alone 8 hours a day with his fur buddies and has not been destructive. He is occasionally crated for a short time and this does not bother him. No health or food issues are apparent. Dream is ready for his forever home.

Kara

Born: Jul/2005
Color: White/Brindle
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Love bug Kara – who responds to Deirdre - is happily adjusting to home living. House trained, using a doggie door, laying in the sun with her toys in the back yard is a favorite pastime. Kara has an affinity with small children, allowing them to hug her around the neck and she reciprocates by kissing their faces. She walks well on the leash but becomes reserved when walking past fenced barking dogs, and leans into her human when cars pass them. When the vacuum is in motion, Kara scoots through the doggie door. Enjoys a car ride and does not bark. Kara is not crated and the foster mom closes doors to other areas in the house to reduce temptations. She eats well, is in general good health, and enjoys being groomed. Kara responds to the tone of voice and comes when hands are clapped and her name is used.

Rush

Born: Jul/2007
Color: Black
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: With Work
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
I'm a small, nimble black beauty called Rush. My two back feet are white and serve as brake lights when I need to change direction: like when I'm charging toward you and you think we're going to collide - no chance. Those brake lights are on the job. I'm comfortable being handled by gentle folks and love kisses and cuddles. The volunteer this morning told me that I had a beautiful face. WOW. Never heard this before, but I guess she meant it because she covered my face with kisses. I sure liked that. They tell me that I'm a 'maybe' with cats. Mm, so maybe if the cat respects my space, we're compatible? But if Kittie nibbles my munchies, not a good idea. I'm sure you won't let this happen because we greys need a private place at chow time, and Kittie will just have to adjust. Greys rule.

Hallie

Born: Jul/2007
Color: Brindle
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
My Oh My. What an upgrade. My own doggie flap, clean rugs, great kibble and lots of hugs and kisses from AGR volunteers. My name is Hallie. I'm a small fawn brindle gal that's a little shy because I'm new to the Greyt Hacienda, but I'm getting into the swing. I'm a cute, affectionate pooch that responds well to kind, gentle people. I'm easy to handle, get along with other dogs, and I'm smart, so training me to fit into your home will be a breeze. Cats, however, are not on my wish list as a companion. They smell different to us greys and when they bounce and scamper around, they remind me of this 'thing' I used to chase when I was racing. But if you don't have kitties and perhaps another dog to romp with, I will blend right in and you will be my rescue angel.

Classy

Born: Sep/2006
Color: White/Black
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Classy is enjoying time with a family that is kind to her. She was underweight and, at first, terribly shy but gradually she is gaining a little weight, learning to trust people and soak up affection. Sometimes Classy gets a little ‘pushy’ with Cherry, her Alpha greyhound roommate, but Cherry promptly puts Classy in her place.  Classy lives with a couple of parrots and, while curious about these feathered residents, she has not tried to pursue them. Mischief gleams in her eyes as she plays with toys. Classy barks very little, and is not disturbed by loud or unusual noises. She is house trained using a doggie door and is not destructive in the home, so she is not crated. Classy is learning her name and the commands ‘come’ and ‘no.’ She is learning to walk on a leash and acclimating quickly to rides in the car.

Tusk

Born: Apr/2008
Color: Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
My name is Tusk. A powerful name but I'm really a push over. At 2-l/2 years of age, I'm energetic and playful and I tolerate cats. Not sure how to play with a cat, but I don't mind snuggling on my doggie bed with kitty as long as kitty 'gets it' that most of the bed space is mine. My left ear occasionally bends to the right. No, I'm not hitchhiking for a lift in a car to reach some far away destination. It's another way for me to keep track of what's happening outside my visual capabilities. I'm in good physical shape, easy to handle and possess a sweet disposition. The holidays are nearly here. What better gift for a family than a retired racing greyhound.

Binky

Born: Feb/2008
Color: Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
Where are my doggie toys? I'm Binky and I turn two in February. Just like human toddlers, a toy or a blanket is an absolute must for us youngsters. This afternoon, the volunteer lady tossed me a couple of blanky toys and I was one happy camper tossing, chasing and chomping as I sped down the sprint run. I'm a playful pooch with a sweet disposition and cat tolerant. I'm easy to handle and love physical attention, especially kisses to my face and strokes under my chin. I'm in great physical shape and eagerly await that special person that will take me home. A sturdy doggie bed, loads of toys, premium chow, regular exercise and I'm yours. Once you and I get acquainted, you'll not be able to resist me.

Mickey

Born: Sep/2004
Color: Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Shy is not in Mickey’s vocabulary.  He is one smart greyhound that gets along well with people and his two greyhound foster brothers. As he tested ‘not cat tolerant,’ a home with kitties is not advisable. Mickey is house trained; rides well in the car and loves his daily walks. He does not pull on the leash but tends to zigzag, exploring new territory. When left alone occasionally without his two doggie companions, he did not become agitated, so he is not being crated. Mickey is in good health, does not steal food, and is not spooked by unusual noises, other than the vacuum cleaner!  Mickey accepts grooming, knows the command ‘settle’ and also knows his name. He will come when called, if he feels like it!  Mickey is a sloppy eater and drinker so a towel under his bowls might be a good idea.

Dilly

Born: Mar/2007
Color: Black
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: No
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Dilly is living with other large dogs and relishing home living. At first, a little shy of strangers, Dilly warms up quickly and becomes very affectionate. Loud noises may startle her, but she is used to the vacuum. She is a good traveler, barks rarely and has learned the doggie door. She accepts crating up to 4 hours a day. Dilly is in good health with no food issues. She enjoys her morning romp but shows prey behavior toward small dogs, so she's probably not cat or small dog tolerant. Dilly accepts grooming and has learned the commands 'leave it' and 'no.' Possessing a roman nose, rare for a greyhound, and expressive eyes, she is a canine Sophia Loren. This is one smart and affectionate hound. She would do best in a home with another dog for company.

Mazzie

Born: May/2005
Color: Fawn
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
My name is Mazzie. I am a young, gorgeous red female. I'm just waiting for some loving soul to take me home and turn me into a princess and spoil me to bits. I'm young and lively and very affectionate, but I need training on how to behave in a home. I have learned about soft toys and can entertain myself by tossing and chasing these puppies until the Arizona sun slides into night. I am so darned cute, that I don't think you can resist me.

Spunky

Born: Oct/2006
Color: Red Fawn
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Spunky has definite ideas of what her life should be in a permanent home. She only answers to Gina and needs freedom to roam throughout the house. She rebels at being crated because, after all, she’s a lady, housetrained using a doggie door and well behaved in the home, so crating is unnecessary. Since being in foster care, Gina has blossomed and is now very outgoing – she loves everyone and gives kisses. Gina is not a barker, travels well in the car, and you can vacuum around her without disturbing her equilibrium. Gina does not like being alone. She lives with another grey and they are best buds, sleeping butt to butt. Sometimes she hides her foster mom’s clothing in the back yard. Gina needs a home where there are other dogs for companionship. Gina responds to commands: ‘Sit,’ ‘Wait,’ ‘Stay,’ and ‘No.’

Idler

Born: Apr/2005
Color: Black
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: No
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: If you’re seeking a calm female with a shiny black coat who likes to give kisses, Idler will make a fabulous fur companion for your family. She loves kids and people of all ages. Idler is a sweet tempered, affectionate and inquisitive hound and not destructive in the home. She is house broken using a doggie door, has impeccable house manners, and does not try to get up on furniture. She walks well on a lead and enjoys her morning walks. She is in foster with a Scottie [28lbs.] a young Great Dane, and several greyhounds. Munching on marrow bones and bully sticks are two of her favorite things. She would do best in a home with another pooch for company.

Velvet

Born: Sep/2004
Color: Black
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Velvet has proven quite the chatter queen when she’s hungry. A ROO and a little mouth action makes it look as though she’s talking, and a few paw nudges persuade her foster Mom it’s time for chow. Velvet lives with other greys and a child [6] without any problems. She is a very good watch dog for those that venture into the back yard unannounced, and will bark and occasionally try to nip what she considers intruders. Velvet is an affectionate gal and will regularly let her foster parents know when she wants to be petted, but she’s not a pest. She usually hangs out with her people in whatever room they happen to be. While Velvet will growl at another dog that gets in her space, a hefty ‘HEY’ calms her right down. Velvet is doggie door house trained and ready for that special someone to take her home.

Roxy

Born: Jan/2008
Color: Red
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
I'm a small fawn female with gorgeous brown eyes called JoJo. I passed cat testing so I'm classified as cat tolerant. Just as long as Kitty doesn't eat out of my food bowl, we'll get along just fine. I have a sweet disposition, like people, and love to play. I know that I would love to explore the Arizona desert and washes on daily walks as long as the snakes are snoozing and can't hurt me. As another new arrival to the Greyt Hacienda straight from the track, I've discovered Kongs. Oh boy. I just love to nose those things all around my condo until I dig out all the biscuits. It's become quite an obsession with me, so when you take me home, please have a stuffed Kong waiting for me. Then I'll know that you want me to stay with you for life.

Emily

Born: Apr/2004
Color: Red Brindle
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Emily is a low maintenance hound that just enjoys being with her people. She's house broken, and is content to sit 'sphinx' style in the back yard while her foster mom tends her garden or cleans the pool. Emily walks well on the leash and likes to be the leader. She is curious about people and other animals across the street but generally ignores them. She does notice cats and, but as she doesn't live with a cat, we don't know how she would react to having a kitty as a roommate. Emily takes a little time to warm up to new people but, once she's comfortable in a new environment, she will follow her people around the home as she does with her foster mom. Emily likes to sleep in the master bedroom close to her people. She is presently living with another dog and does fine when the foster mom is absent from the home 6 hours a day, three times a week. Her foster mom reports 'she's just one of those nice greyhounds that will make a joyful addition to the home.'

Fiona

Born: Jan/2003
Color: Yellow
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Fiona is a fun-loving, affectionate girl that knows her name and obeys the command 'sit.' In the home, Fiona is docile, house broken, cat tolerant, not destructive, and can be left alone for a few hours without suffering separation anxiety. However, she is terrified of thunder and fireworks. Fiona only has sight in her right eye so she may feel insecure and this will explain why she pulls on the leash in unknown territory where there is heavy traffic and strange dogs, although she is slowly improving. Fiona needs her space when eating and will growl at other dogs if they come too close to her food bowl. For a potential adopter with a large yard where Fiona can play with squeaky toys and another dog for company may be sufficient exercise for this sweet girl and avoid any anxiety she has with the outside world.

Amado

Born: Mar/2007
Color: Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: No
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Amado is a fun-loving dog that is happy and content. He views himself as an alpha-male so he could be comfortable as the only fur kid in the home as long as his adopter is home most of the time, or with another dog for company when his people are absent from the home. Amado loves people and approaches them to get petted. He wants to be where his people are and he's very curious about new places, sounds and smells. Thunderstorms or unusual loud noises do not faze him, he rides well in the car, and is house broken using a doggie door. He loves his daily walks and responds to the commands 'wait' and 'leave it.' Amado is a direct communicator: he makes his needs known through barking.

Bandit

Born: Mar/2004
Color: Black
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Bandit is a real charmer and adapting well to home living. He is a gentle, happy, playful dog that loves his squeaky toys and will play fetch. He is fascinated with his reflection in the mirrors and likes to put his head on his foster mom’s shoulder. He plays well with the other greyhound in the home, loves his walks, does not pull on the leash and rides well in the car. Bandit has a prey drive and chases rabbits and birds, and when the neighbor’s dog had the cheek to come into Bandit’s yard, he chased the dog out PDQ. Bandit knows his name and will usually come when called. Bandit loves everyone including kids. Loud noises startle him a little but he’s figured out that the T.V. is not ‘out to get him,’ and enjoys watching Animal Planet!

Cheetah

Born: Nov/2005
Color: Fawn
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: No
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Cheetah is a handsome, playful, affectionate dog that loves to visit with people. He is very loving and likes children, but a home with very small children might not work as he is very large and, while playing, could inadvertently topple a toddler. Cheetah appears oblivious to loud noises but has yet to experience a thunderstorm. He barks very little, usually when he’s playing with his doggie roommate, rides well in the car, and is house trained with or without access to a doggie door. Cheetah has a crate that is left open and he traipses in and out as he pleases, or snoozes on doggie beds. He’s a good eater and no food issues have been noted. Cheetah walks well on the leash without pulling and loves to be groomed. He knows his name and comes when called. This boy has no bad habits – just needs a loving home.
