Jewel

Born: Jun/2010
Color: Red Fawn
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Jewel is a smart dog and very much a puppy; she is not crated. She loves to play with toys, steal socks or shoes, counter surf, and snatch things off the coffee table. A verbal scolding keeps Jewel in line. If she gets too snappy during play, she’s told ‘No’ and she stops. After her first week in foster, Jewel thought Patches the cat was a toy and tried to pick him up in her mouth. Patches was not amused but did not jump off the couch; the cat realized that Jewel was not being aggressive. However, if Jewel went to a home with a cat, supervision and a dog-free zone for the cat would be a good idea until both animals get used to each other. On her walks, Jewel is friendly toward people but is unsure about children. Housebreaking is ongoing and Jewel is learning fast. She loves to walk and ride in the car. She responds to her name and ‘come,’ ‘off’ and ‘scoot.’

Bruno

Born: Sep/2010
Color: Black
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
I answer to Bruno. I’m a handsome, gentle giant, almost the size of a Great Dane, with a gleaming black coat. If you appreciate us big guys, I’m the one for you.  Imagine. A scrawny burglar squeezes through your fence with intent to pry open a window, enter your home, and steal all your hi-tech toys. As he squeezes his bony butt through the window, he meets me, nose to nose. I show my teeth and utter a deep growl as I lung toward the burglar. Petrified, the guy withdraws from the window, runs like hell across the back yard, and scales the 5’ fence. Fear can do that to a guy – it’s a better boost than coffee! See how useful a handsome giant like me can be to my adopters. When the TV cameras arrive, I’ll just bark, “Aw shucks, weren’t nothin’ ” as you hang a plaque on the front door: Burglars be warned - Bruno on Patrol.

Heather

Born: Apr/2004
Color: Black
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Fostering Heather is a breeze. A former brood Mom, she is a sweet healthy girl with a gentle disposition. Heather is fully house trained, uses the doggie door, and has excellent house manners. She is not crated. She is an early riser and nudges my cheek with her cold wet nose to wake me up and take her for a walk. She gets along well with my two greys and American Eskimo, and with other dogs that we meet on our walks. Heather is a little under weight but has a good appetite so she will quickly gain a few pounds.  She is very alert to bunnies scampering across the path on our walks, and her ears shoot up and morph into antennas as she tracks that furry critter through the brush. I have left Heather alone for a couple of hours with only the American Eskimo for company, without any problems. Heather has yet to experience an encounter with kids or cats!

Nicole

Born: Aug/2008
Color: Black
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Nicole has a sweet temperament, is a quick learner, and gets along well with her greyhound roommate, the cat, and a Chihuahua-type dog. She is 90% housebroken. Nicole eats well and is learning not to countersurf. She is not shy around people, likes to hang out with her foster Mom, and only whines momentarily when the foster mom leaves the home. Nicole remains calm around cars and vacuums but has yet to experience a thunderstorm. She loves the car and her walks and barks very little. She’s not tolerant of crating. Nicole is healthy and no foods bother her tummy. She handles grooming well, knows her name and will come when called, and is learning commands: no, stay, O.K. Nicole will do well with people that give her a lot of affection and attention.

Monte

Born: Jun/2009
Color: White/Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Monte is a handsome, exuberant dog with the last shreds of puppy hood. Monte is slowly gaining self-confidence and will take a nap in his crate or on his doggie bed on his own. He is startled by loud noises and voices and doesn’t like to go outside in the dark. Monte is sharing living space with two other greyhounds and one mixed breed. Recently, he interacted with several doggie guests. Observation suggests that Monte will do best with dogs that are more than 60 lbs. He is learning about rabbits and javelinas outside the fence and, based on his level of interest, his foster mom suspects that Monte is not cat or small dog safe. Monte is crated – reluctantly - when he is left alone for more than four hours. Because he had a broken right rear hock, short walks work better for him. Monte would do best in a quiet home with another greyhound and a family or individual that is home a lot.

Clover

Born: Aug/2006
Color: Red Fawn
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: With Work
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Clover is a little shy and is still learning to navigate tile or slick flooring. Her adopter will need to work with Clover on this, reassuring her that she’s safe. Clover has not demonstrated any aggressive behavior but, as with all large dogs, care should be taken with small children, especially toddlers. She doesn’t seem to have any separation anxiety and gets along well with her four doggie roommates. She rides well in the car, rarely barks, and is house trained using a doggie door. Clover views her open-door crate as a safe place and sleeps in her crate at night. She is becoming a very playful girl, is learning to love toys, and responds to her name most of the time. No food problems or health issues have been observed and Clover tolerates grooming well. Clover’s foster guardians believe that Clover would not do well being left alone all day.

Walter

Born: Oct/2007
Color: Red Fawn
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
I’m a mature, mellow chap called Walter. Like Ranger, I’m tall - long legged you know.  I have a gorgeous red fawn fur coat and I’m sure I’ll enjoy being brushed to maintain my gleaming perfection.  As you and I sashay through the neighborhood, heads will turn, envious that your fur companion is such a handsome devil. And to think, all this beauty without botox.  I’m looking for a peaceful home with people that adore me. If you have another fur kid that would be super fine as I would like a companion. I’m saving my pennies to buy a Kindle. I’m learning to read and it seems to me that a Kindle is so much easier for a pooch to handle. Until then, I’m asking Liz to take me to the library every other week to check out a book. I’m currently reading Dick Cheney’s new book ‘In my Time – a Political Memoir.’ Mmm!

Reba

Born: Jan/2009
Color: White with black spots
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: No
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Reba is adorable and a quick learner, so says her foster mom. She’s cute and definitely still has some puppy energy and mannerisms. Her favorite toy is a blue ball with a squeaker that she carries around in her mouth. She’s not shy and can be left alone for a while without any major repercussions. She rides well in the car, barks moderately, and is practically house trained using a doggie door. Reba loves her walks but still pulls a little on the leash. She loves food, so she should be easy to train using food as the motivator. Reba does not tolerate crating!  She does have allergies, which seem to include wheat and environmental triggers, so she takes a daily antihistamine. Reba knows her name, comes when called, and responds to commands, “Go make” and “Go lay down.” This cute bundle can climb like a monkey, so potential adopters be warned; hide your sponges and don’t leave anything on the stove or countertops!

Bryce

Born: May/2006
Color: Light Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Kennel
Cats: No
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
My name if Bryce. I’m a small light brindle boy that barks a greeting to people that visit the kennel. I was told this morning that my bark is charming and friendly, not the least aggressive. While greyhounds bark infrequently, there are times that we bark to alert our humans that someone is at the door, or someone is walking close to our property. We like to think that you need to know these things. I swooned as soon as one of the volunteers told me I was gorgeous and kissed me on the nose. How awesome. It made my toes curl – and that’s when I realized that I needed a nail clipping!  Joking aside, I’m an affectionate, playful dog that will be over the moon once you adopt me and I have my very own plush doggie bed. I hear that marrowbones are available in the butcher section of grocery stores – YUM – good to remove tarter from my teeth.

Ashley

Born: Jul/2010
Race name: Gable Yo
Color: Red Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: No
Status: ADOPTED!
Yo! Yo is ready to give you some greyhound loving.  He may look like Jane; it's because they are half-siblings.  Yo is excited about his new life but unsure of those little critters around him.  He must be thinking, "Green feathers?  What kind of greyhound has green feathers?  What a strange place."  Yo is young at 2 years old and needs a little help with his new surroundings, but is very willing to have you show him what retirement is all about.

Arnie

Born: Apr/2001
Color: Black
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: No
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Clementine and Ozzy rebound to AGR because their owner became seriously ill and could no longer care for them. These dogs need a permanent home together. They will not do well living apart. Clementine prefers to spend her time snoozing on her bed. She is not interested in playing with toys. She gets along well with her foster sisters. Clementine cries when her foster guardians leave the home but she is not destructive. Unexpected loud or unusual noises do not disturb her. She rides well in the car, barks very little, and is house trained using a doggie door. Clementine is not crated but the foster parents use a doggie gate to corral her when they are absent from the home. She enjoys her walks, is good on the leash, and tolerates grooming. Clementine knows her name, comes when called, and knows basic commands: ‘No,’ ‘Leave it,’ ‘Come.’

Vana

Born: Aug/2005
Color: Black
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Vana was a scared pooch when she first came to AGR. Now in foster, Vana is gradually learning that the outside world can be exciting and fun. She is living with two other greys and enjoys being one of the pack: she’s not an alpha dog. Vana remains shy but quiet, gentle reassurance will help her overcome her shyness. She is house trained without a doggie door. There have been no accidents or incidents of destruction in the house. Vana is not to be crated. When the vacuum is dragged out, Vana and her greyhound roommates disappear. Loud noises still scare her and she is not thrilled with ceiling fans, but has adjusted to them. Vana is healthy and eats well; no foods seem to upset her tummy. While still timid, Vana is not beyond countersurfing: she recently swiped a cooked chicken breast off the counter! As soon as she’s a little more confident with the world around her, Vana will make the perfect fur companion for the right person/people.

Reyna

Born: May/2009
Color: Light Brindle
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Reyna, our sparkling hummingbird, is friendly with everyone. She’s healthy and very playful, prancing around the house carrying toys in her mouth. Happy and go-lucky, we suspect Reyna has a smidgeon of May West in her personality. Not aggressive or territorial in any situation, Reyna can be left alone for a few hours without any problem. If your couch pillows are rearranged, Reyna is just exploring her interior designer aspirations. Our girl is adjusting well to the worldly loud and unusual noises. She enjoys her car rides, barks very little, and is house trained without a doggie door: At night, Reyna has the option of happily sleeping in her crate with the door open. She knows her name and the command ‘no’ and will sit upon hearing the word and hand signals. She can also navigate stairs! Reyna is a ‘roach Queen’ just looking for the perfect adopters.

Ranger

Born: Nov/2009
Color: Fawn
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: With Work
Status: ADOPTED!
My name is Ranger. I’m a red fawn greyhound that’s kinda tall. Some say I’m handsome. I’m a little shy but the kennel volunteers are helping me to become more social. I’m learning that affection makes me feel warm and secure, and I soak up as much attention as I can get. If I like you, I will lean up against you so that you can stroke my ears and perhaps give me a hug around the neck. I really like hugs, especially if they come with a kiss on my nose. I need a strong connection with my human guardians so I will probably become a ‘Velcro’ dog and follow you from room to room. After all, I need to make sure that you’re not getting into any mischief. If you’re getting close to being out of line, your nether regions will receive a nosey nudge from me.  Don’t say I didn’t warn you. HA!

Sky

Born: Apr/2007
Color: Fawn
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Sky is respectful with children and smaller dogs, even the family parrot in her foster home. With new situations, initially Sky may be a little shy, but recovers well. She shows no fear or concern with loud or unusual noises. She’s a healthy, mellow dog that can be left alone for a short while without getting anxious. Sky barks occasionally if she sees other dogs and people around the property. She is housetrained using a doggie door, and she will also scratch at the door to be let out. Sky is not crated but restricted to the living and family rooms. She willingly jumps in and out of the car and loves her walks. Sky is learning the commands ‘off’ ‘watch out’ ‘come’ ‘no’ ‘leave it’ and ‘stay.’ This is a lovable girl that will lay her head in your lap and snuggle. Sky would probably be good with kids nine years and older.

Lizzie

Born: Apr/2009
Color: Brindle
Gender: Female
Housing: Kennel
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
My biography is coming soon!

Campi

Born: Feb/2008
Color: Blue Brindle
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Campi is a healthy, laid-back dog. She has perfect house manners so training through crating is unnecessary. She has gorgeous amber eyes and an amazing overbite that gives her wondrous expressions. Campi enjoys having another dog as a companion. She spent a little time around cats and did just fine. Campi is not shy. She’s great with people and accepting of kids but unlikely to play with them. She can be left alone in the home without getting anxious or destructive. She knows how to use a doggie door and is not bothered by loud or unusual noises. Campi barks very little, loves her car rides and walks. She is being taught not to jump at the sound of the leash and knows the commands ‘no’ and ‘down.’ Camp knows her name but she doesn’t always come when called. Foster Mom says this dog is as sweet as they come!

Breeze

Born: Jun/2009
Color: Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Kennel
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
I’ll whirl and spin around your legs and a whoosh of air will lightly brush your skin. How ‘bout them bananas [sorry, don’t like apples.]  I’m Breeze, a small tan/brindle fella that hired Bat Man and Robin to find me the most suitable home in Southern Arizona where I can hang my leash. It’s not that I’m picky or an ego maniac, it’s just that I’m very selective. I bring to the table a handsome appearance and a playful and affectionate personality, however, I know zilch about home living, but I can learn ‘cos I’m one smart greyhound. When racing, I fathomed out PDQ that if I lagged behind and ran slower than my competition, I would quickly be tossed out and headed for an adoption group.  Hello!  It worked – HA! I’m looking forward to living in a home with people who will play with me. I’d like to try my paw at basketball – will you teach me?

Bandit 2

Born: Apr/2003
Color: White/Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
My Mom and Dad are in the military. They are being deployed to the Middle East in early September and I can’t go with them. Sadly, I need to be re-homed. My name is Bandit. I never raced as I broke my leg in training when I was young, but I’m all healed now and healthy. I’m housetrained using a doggie door, but I will whimper if the door is closed and I need to go out. I’m in tiptop shape. Just had all my shots renewed and my teeth cleaned. I’m a Velcro dog that will follow you from room to room. I love to meet people and enjoy my ten-minute madness of playtime with older kids. I would prefer not to live with toddlers – too active, too grabby with the hands, and too noisy. I get along well with other dogs and I’m cat tolerant. I am an obedient dog that listens and follows most basic commands. A new home with another dog for companionship would be great.

Pete

Born: May/2008
Color: White/Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
I’m a happy, white bouncy boy called Pete. As you can see, my white fur promises cool snow showers during an Arizona summer. Can I guarantee that?  No, of course I can’t. I’m a dog, not a marketing guru, but I can promise love and loyalty if you take me home. I’ve been taking courses as Pima College on Fur Companionship and I’m sure that I will ace the course. After all, most of it is common sense. I can’t imagine anything nicer than living with you, taking leisurely strolls during the cool hours when people will comment, ‘what a handsome, sweet boy.’ Yes, I’m a keeper.’ I’m a medium size hound that will fold up quite nicely into a small ball on your couch. I hope I go into foster care soon to learn about home living because then I’ll be one ripe greyhound ready for adoption. But if you want to home train me, log onto AGR’s website and contact the adoption director to let her know that you want to take me home.

Dan

Daisy

Born: Jun/2009
Color: Black
Gender: Female
Housing: Kennel
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
Sing along with me here: ‘Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer, do. I’m half crazy over my love for you.’ If the question is, will you move into our home and be our fur companion, the answer is YES!  I’m an all black, small girl with a sweet disposition that’s very social. The Arizona summer heat prevents me from socializing outside, but I’ve heard that Tucson features jazz entertainment at several resorts during the evenings. Just up my alley. I already have a little black outfit. All I need is a string of pearls and I’m ready to step out and mingle. So if you’re a jazz fan, call my cell for a date. You may have to take a doggie bed with you ‘cos I’m not too adept at sitting like other dogs. We greys prefer to lounge sphinx style. If the resort refuses to let me in, just tell them I’m a reincarnation of your Aunty Mame. HA!

Dahlia

Born: Jul/2009
Color: Fawn
Gender: Female
Housing: Kennel
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
Small, playful and cute, that’s me. My name is Dahlia. I’m a young, red female greyhound with a white chest and black mask over my nose. I’m told I’m one good-looking hound and, frankly, I have to agree. I’m friendly and outgoing; not the least bit shy. I like people and enjoy being around other greyhounds. I hope to go into foster care to learn about home living, or you can snap me up and teach me the do’s and don’ts of how to behave in your home. A famous human once said, “I have a dream.” Guess what, I, too, have dreams. I dream of walks in the cool mornings, premium chow and tasty tit bits between meals, and doggie beds in each room so that I can be with you at all times. Once you meet me and hug me around the neck, I think my dreams will come true, ‘cos you’ll be hooked on me!

Kent

Born: Jan/2009
Color: Red
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: No
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Kent is an exuberant greeter when his foster mom returns from work. He loves toys and, like his foster friend Reba, has his favorite. Kent is an affable, affectionate hound, not the least shy with people, and he is not bothered by loud noises.  He loves to ride in the car, standing the entire time, barks moderately, and enjoys his walks although he pulls on the leash. Kent is healthy, has a good appetite but does not care for raw veggies like his doggie roommates. His foster mom is currently working on house training, as she doesn’t have a doggie door. Kent is not crated. He is easy to handle when it’s time for grooming. He knows his name, comes when called, and obeys the commands, “Go make” and “Go lay down.” Kent is an easy dog and super enthusiastic about everything. Not to mention he’s handsome!

Gentry

Born: Aug/2007
Color: Black
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Gentry enjoys interacting with people and knows everyone in the neighborhood. He will bark if he’s scared or wants his foster mom to get up promptly at 6:00 a.m. but he never barks at other dogs or kids. Gentry is not happy being left alone for too long. A home with another dog for companionship would be best or an adopter who is home full time. Since learning how to get in and out of the truck, Gentry loves to cruise. Leisurely strolls with plenty of ‘sniffing’ time is perfect for this gorgeous pooch that answers to his name and the commands ‘come’ and ‘leave it.’ Gentry is 95% house trained. If no one is in the room to let him out, he trots through the house until he finds someone. Such a smart greyhound! Gentry accepts involuntary crating for short periods. He loves playing with his toys and being around his people. He’s so easy to fall in love with – why don’t you meet him – call AGR for an appointment?

Roxy fka Brita

Born: Mar/2006
Color: Fawn
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Due to a change in her current owner’s circumstances, Roxy fna Brita, is again available for adoption. Her owner will foster Roxy until a suitable placement is found. Roxy is healthy and energetic and likes to play. A high energy home with other dogs and children, eight years or older that will play with her, would be a perfect environment. Roxy is happiest when playing with other dogs and/or kids; she’s super social. Roxy is an independent love bug and seeks affection from everyone. She is cat tolerant IF the cat is assertive and hisses, swats, and stands its ground. Roxy is house-trained and will ‘needle nose’ her caregiver if she needs to go outside to go ‘potty.’ She is well behaved in the home and is not crated. Roxy’s shots are all current and shortly she will need a routine dental cleaning. Roxy is one sweet little girl with a happy, loving temperament that will blend nicely into an active family with other dogs and older kids.

Winston

Born: Jan/2009
Color: White with black spots
Gender: Male
Housing: Kennel
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
My name is Winston and my coloring is rather distinctive: white with black spots. Some uninitiated person could mistake me for a Dalmatian but not a true greyhound lover. I like to lean my head on your shoulder when you’re grooming or petting me. I really enjoy that one-on-one connection. I can ROO you awake in the mornings when I’m playing with my squeaky toys at 5:30 a.m. You’ll never miss that important morning meeting with me around. I’m sorta medium size and don’t take up much space when I’m curled up on a doggie bed or on the couch next to you. I’ve been trained to trot alongside you on our walks and not drag you through the wash on your belly if I spot something worth chasing. Course, there are always exceptions in life, don’t ya think – HA!

Rory

Born: Jan/2009
Color: White
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
I’m a small, white male greyhound called Rory. My distinctive feature is the color of my ears; they’re a blend of black and copper, very fetching. I have a pleasant personality and I’m cute! What else do you need to know? Oh, do I chew stuff? Not sure. Never been in a home so maybe I could get hooked on one of your sandals, especially if you’re like Karyn and don’t put them away in the closet. But if that’s a no/no, you just gently give me a nudge and I’ll leave them alone. Instead, I’ll concentrate on tearing up the brown grocery bags that you shove alongside the refrigerator. I hear from other greys that this really gets folks going. They come home to find shredded grocery bags all over the floor and furniture in the living room. The resident greyhound, lounging on the couch, of course feigns ignorance. I’m with him HA!
