Ginger fka Gum Drop

Born: Feb/2003
Color: Brindle
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: As the only pampered pooch for several years, due to a recent death in the family, Ginger needs a new home. She is a well-mannered greyhound that is leash trained, well behaved in the home, and is always sociable with humans and other dogs that she meets on her walks. She is house trained and will stand by the door to be let out. Ginger is an affectionate dog that enjoys being petted. She would do best in a home as the only dog. She is not cat tolerant but seems to get along with smaller dogs. Ginger is a mellow dog that doesn’t bark or cringe from loud noises, but she would prefer not to live in a home with small children due to the high activity level. Ginger’s former owners took exceptional care of this dog and, except for a little arthritis, that requires one pill a day, Ginger is healthy and current on her shots. She would be a great companion for a first-time greyhound owner whose home most of the time.

Clark

Born: Jan/2006
Color: Fawn
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
Clark is a five-year-old fawn male. He is seeking a new home because of his owner’s serious health condition. This is a tremendous heartache for the owner and his beloved greyhound companion. Clark is a loving, well-behaved dog that is house trained, loves his car rides, walks well on the leash and is good with other dogs, big and small. He has never seen a cat, and is a little timid with small children on first meeting if they rush toward him. Clark only barks when he wants to go outside to relieve himself. Clark is healthy and all his shots are current. He has no known food allergies. He is fed premium kibble with a few occasional people food tit bits. Clark knows his name and the command ‘heel’ for stop. Clark has always lived with someone who is home most of the time, so he needs a new home where someone is around a lot. Clark would make the perfect fur companion for a first-time greyhound owner.

Washington (aka Washi)

Born: Nov/2008
Race name: Lake Washington
Color: Blue Fawn Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Weight: 92
Status: ADOPTED!
Washington, aka Washi, is back in the AGR family due to no fault of his own. He has been with his adopters 6 years. He is seeking a family that appreciates that he is your typical, large, cuddle bear canine. He loves people, is very affectionate, and wants to be included in daily activities. He likes to be stroked and talked to... and a scratch on my hindquarters is a plus. Washi is one smart greyhound, loves car rides, enjoys walks, knows how to use a doggie door, and has great house manners.

Kim

Born: Jun/2004
Color: Brindle
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: No
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: To Kim, everyone is a friend. If her foster guardians lay on the floor, Kim will be right next to them. When they move from room to room, there’s Kim, right next to them with her head practically in their hands. She can be left alone for a few hours without any signs of anxiety. She is housetrained using a doggie door and not crated because she is well behaved in the home. Kim walks well on the leash, is good in the car, and knows her name. She knows the command ‘sit.’ Kim will focus on small dogs and may have a prey drive, but a quick verbal nudge will refocus her. Kim is frightened by unexpected loud bangs. She will bark a few times, then pant, and pace. When it’s time for the vacuum to make its entrance, Kim shoots through the doggie door. These reactions should abate over time as Kim becomes more acclimated to living in a home environment.

Henry

Born: Mar/2010
Color: Fawn
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
My name is Henry. I’m a large blonde male greyhound that’s a little timid on first meeting but, once I’ve ‘sniffed’ you out, then we can shake paws and be best buds. I’m an easy-going fella and enjoy hands-on affection. I’m a good-looking hound but could use a day at a doggie spa – my coat is a gorgeous color so I know I’ll clean up well. However, my smile is picture perfect. My chompers are so clean that when I smile at you on our early morning walks, sunlight will bounce right off my teeth, so you’ll need to wear shades to protect your eyes HA! I like my raised doggie bed but I look forward to  a large, sumptuous doggie bed all my own that cuddles every curve of my body as I dream the night away. I’m not really picky about color, but if you could find one in turquoise or teal, that would be excellent.

Riley

Born: Jan/2009
Color: Black
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: No
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Riley is an affectionate dog with a dash of sassy. She is at ease with both males and females - and likes children. Riley has learned to use a doggie door and can entertain herself with squeaky toys that she carries around the home in her mouth. She also enjoys cooling her tummy on the top step of the pool. Riley will growl or bark at other dogs if they approach her too quickly but she gets along well with her two greyhound roommates and two temporary greyhound visitors. Riley is a talker and whines when she sees other dogs across the street or behind fences. She is not the least shy and can handle being alone for a short while without becoming anxious. Unexpected and unfamiliar activity like a bouncing basketball or quick movements above or around her sometimes make her a little skittish. Riley has a high prey drive and cannot live with small dogs or cats.

Ozzy

Born: Jan/2002
Color: Fawn
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: No
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Ozzie is a love bug; always has his head in someone’s lap and wants to be petted all the time. He is not shy and loves people. Although he cries when left alone, he is not destructive in the home. Tolerates the vacuum by thrusting his nose in the air and vacating the room!  Ozzie needs a little hoist to get him in the back of a car. He barks very little and is house trained using a doggie door. Ozzie is not a candidate for ‘The Biggest Loser’ because he’s not thrilled about daily walks. He will, however, allow gentle grooming. Ozzie knows his name and will come when called. He must find a home with Clementine because they’re like Mr. and Mrs. Ozzie has soft bunny type fur and is a complete love bug.

Niles

Born: Jul/2008
Color: Red Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Niles is a sweet boy with a charming personality. He gets along famously with adults, children and other dogs. Well behaved in the home, Niles has not exhibited signs of separation anxiety when left alone for a couple of hours. Niles is fearless of unusual loud noises and is a born car traveler. He is the consummate communicator who barks, whines and howls; however, consistent ongoing gentle training will help Niles recognize when this behavior is appropriate—such as a burglar!  Niles is house trained but he really prefers to do his business on his walks. He would do best with a family that exercises early in the cool morning hours. Niles has advanced arthritis in his right rear leg. He may need to take daily medication. Therefore, Niles cannot run at the doggie park, is restricted to two short daily walks, and needs to be lifted in and out of the car. This beautiful boy needs someone that’s greyhound savvy with a big heart.

Martie

Born: Jun/2006
Color: Brindle
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Martie is beginning to relax and become more comfortable in her foster home. She knows that she has to do her business outside and gets up consistently at 5:00 a.m. - just for that purpose. On two occasions, she has barked to go outside. She seems to prefer the company of women, does O.K. with men, but would not do well in a home with children.  Although Martie whines when the foster mom leaves the home, she is not destructive, and is realizing that the mom will return. She is a little fearful of the loud metal gate and perhaps the rolling trash can and vacuum, but her curiosity overrides her trepidation, as she will approach both with reassurance.  Martie is not crated because she is quiet and well mannered. She rides well in the car, has a good appetite, is healthy, and wags her tail when the martingale comes out. Martie has sensitive skin but accepts gentle grooming. She may not be small dog tolerant.

Lance

Born: Oct/2007
Race name: Stretch Armstrong
Color: Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
Lance has returned to our family because his owner could no longer care for him due to a change in the owner's medical condition. Lance is a sweet older gentleman who probably needs the companionship of other hounds and an owner who is home most of the time. He gets along well with the other dogs, is not shy around people and not anxious if left alone for a few hours. Lance is good in the car and has excellent leash manners. Lance loves toys and happily plays alone when the other dogs are too busy to play with him. He has soulful eyes and a huge heart. We would like to get boy with a permanent family soon. Can that be you?

Heidi

Born: Nov/2010
Color: Brindle
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
I’m a five-month-old brindle beauty in training to become a ballerina. I can leap through the air from the picnic table and, most of the time, miss landing on my foster Dad’s head, but not always! Hey, I’m a puppy; I just need more practice before I join the New York ballet. I’m house broken and get along O.K. with kids, eight years and older, but not the younger ones. I get a little too excited when I’m playing and sometimes I nip.  Puppy exuberance, don’t you know. I need a home where my people understand puppies, can keep up with me, teach me manners, and help me grow into a magnificent well-behaved greyhound. My natural beauty is a plus!

Canbe

Born: Jan/2009
Color: Black
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
My biograpy is coming soon!

Caber

Born: Feb/2009
Color: Red Fawn
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
I’m Caber. I’m a medium-size red male greyhound with a slender build.  I am thoroughly enjoying my retirement from racing and the volunteers say that I’m a little ‘frisky.’ Any greyhound that is retired will understand the urge to be ‘frisky.’ We worked our fur off seven days a week, eat doggie fast food, and retired without a pension, not even a paw watch! Can you imagine? However, I hear there are great opportunities ahead. Some nice family will see me on the website or perhaps at tabling at a local pet store. They will recognize that I’m a prince among greyhounds and fall in love with me. Once they’re hooked, I can ask for toys, doggie beds, and the chance to snooze on the couch with the person who has the remote and watch Sunday night football. I’m game if you are!

Bob

Born: May/2008
Color: White and Red
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: At age three, Bob, a 68 lb. bundle of affection is one handsome charmer with a passion for squeaky toys. Bob is a social hound and not shy around anyone, including children. He gets along with other dogs but has yet to meet a Feline Queen! Bob will follow his foster mom from room to room and - if she has the nerve to leave him in the house while she is working in the yard - he will whine and bark a little because of the separation. However, he spends six to seven hours a day at home alone with another dog for companionship while his foster mom is at work with no problem. Bob is courageous and undaunted by the vacuum or other loud or unusual noises. He loves riding in the car, barks very little, and is an enthusiastic walker that does better with a harness than a leash because he’s a persistent stopper/sniffer! Bob needs to become a permanent family member – could that be with you?

Addie 2

Born: Apr/2009
Color: Brindle
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Addie is a sweet natured girl whose right hock was severely injured in February 2011. She has recovered, but her medical situation will require regular monitoring. Addie is extremely shy, skittish to noise and scared if someone – male or female - moves directly toward her. When she’s comfortable that she can trust you, she will gladly accept belly rubs and other types of affection. Addie needs to live with another greyhound and an adopter who is very greyhound savvy to help Addie build confidence. Addie is a collector and her foster family frequently finds their ‘stuff’ along with toys in Addie’s pile in the back yard. Addie rides well in the car, barks very little, is house trained, walks well on the leash, and has shown no negative reaction to any foods. She responds to her name and the command ‘no.’ For the right adopters, Addie will make a sweet addition to the family. She’s extremely cute, yearns to be loved, and, once she trusts you, she will mature into a confident lovable fur companion.

Rascal

Born: Jan/2004
Color: White Dalmation mix
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: The foster Dad reports, “Rascal is cute and cuddly and just yearns to be wanted.” Rascal is well behaved in the home, not crated, house trained, likes people and other dogs, and can live harmoniously with small dogs and cats. He doesn’t get anxious if he’s left alone at home for a while, but he’s not fond of the vacuum when it’s in motion. Rascal is great on the leash, barks very little, and loves car rides. Rascal knows his name, comes when called and responds to several commands. Rascal eats well and prefers a little garlic powder sprinkled over his daily chow. We suspect he was an Italian greyhound in another life. Rascal is a great dog familiar with the rules of home living, just waiting for that special someone to scoop him up.  Rascal deserves to live with a new family that will care for him and recognize that he is one precious love bug.

Honey

Born: Jan/2007
Color: Fawn Grey/Lab mix
Gender: Female
Housing: Kennel
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Honey enjoys the companionship of people and other dogs. Her fosters have left Honey alone with their other dogs occasionally for about six hours with no problems. Honey is a healthy, assertive dog that shows no fear of loud or unusual noises. She will not allow other dogs to push her around but she is not aggressive. She shows an interest in cats but backs down once she hears that familiar feline ‘hiss.’ Honey is an explorer. As there is no longer a Queen of Spain to front Honey’s high seas adventures, Honey needs a block wall or secure rock-fence base to keep her in the yard and prevent her from rearrange the landscaping to create an escape route. Honey loves car rides, walks and the doggie park. She barks very little and is house trained. Honey likes to doze on the couch, another dog’s bed or in her crate with the door open. This is one cute bundle of affection that needs an adopter who appreciates Honey kisses.

Ripple

Born: Nov/2003
Color: Brindle
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: No
Status: ADOPTED!
I’m so disappointed that nobody has selected me yet as his or her permanent fur companion. My foster Mom says, “Ripple, don’t worry. A special family will come along for you soon.” I asked her, “Is that a short soon or a long soon ‘cos my self-esteem is getting pretty shaky.” I long for a doggie bed that’s all mine and someone who gives me lots of physical affection. Hint: I never tire of having my ears scratched. As a former brood mamma, I think I have a paw up over my competition. Mature females make better roommates. I’m a nurturing greyhound that checks the rest of the pack to make sure all is well. I have impeccable house manners. Even after several litters, I’m in fantastic shape: no nips, tucks or botox here! If you’re seeking a sweet, loyal companion, I’m the gal for you.

Pedro

Born: Apr/2007
Color: Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
Hi, I’m Pedro. I’m a medium size brindle boy that loves to chase the volunteers around the exercise yard. I bob and twist, dodge and weave, and skid to a stop so fast that red smoke shoots out of my toenails. If you’re buying any of this, you may be too gullible to live with a greyhound - HA! Just a little doggie humor. I look forward to sharing my life with people who adore greyhounds and want an affectionate scamp like me in their lives. I’m not a demanding fella. I just need premium chow, many toys, daily walks, and a never-ending supply of hugs and kisses. You can do that, right?  I’ll keep my cell phone charged, waiting for your call.

Jay

Born: Aug/2006
Color: Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: No
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: My name is Jay. I am five years old and I know my name. I am a mellow, happy boy, totally house-trained, and never once had an accident in the house. I like to hang out in the same room as my foster-family, and will follow them around if they change rooms. I love to play with stuffed squeaky toys, and can throw them and catch them in mid-air all by myself.  My foster-sister and foster-brother, Maureen and Cedar, just taught me how to jump on the bed, which is quite a relaxing place to take a nap or play with my toys. I really like pieces of roasted chicken and egg white scrambled eggs, but I’m sure I will like whatever doggie healthy homemade treats you make for me.  As I learn new things about home living, my bio will be updated one more time, so please keep checking in on me.

Emma

Born: Aug/2008
Color: Black
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: N/A
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
I’m a sleek jet arrow called Emma. I can slice my way through the exercise yard without making contact with anything but air. I look awesome in motion. I’m a petite female that’s a little shy and needs some space to adjust to the world outside of racing. I really like people and enjoy one-on-one attention. Once my confidence improves, I will feel more comfortable meeting groups of people. Until then, I will probably hide behind you for safety if I feel a little overwhelmed. I like to be petted and know that I would enjoy early morning strolls or romps in a safe doggie park with my special person. I’m now in foster care learning home etiquette. For a greyhound, that’s a no brainer! If you want to add to your family, don’t forget to visit with me so that I can interview you in person!

Dinah

Born: Jan/2007
Color: Red Fawn
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: With Work
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Dinah LOVES KIDS! She watches Sponge Bob with two friends ages two and four. Sometimes she can be overly exuberant with small children so supervision is recommended. Extremely inquisitive, Dinah loves to know what’s going on. Once her curiosity is satisfied, she’ll turn her attention to her favorite game: tossing stuffed toys. Dinah is a faster learner and seems to enjoy learning behavior commands: ‘come,’ ‘wait,’ ‘stand,’ ‘leave it,’ and ‘on by.’  She knows her name and comes when called 80% of the time.  Dinah enjoys the company of other large dogs. She has a moderately high prey drive so birds, cats, overly playful puppies and small pocket dogs are probably to be avoided.  Dinah is fearless and nothing seems to bother her. She is well behaved in the home and practically house trained. When presented with a crate, Dinah goes into a total panic and she appears to be claustrophobic so she is not crated.

Zeus

Born: Mar/2003
Color: Black
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: Yes
Small Dogs: Yes
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Zeus is a gentle giant. He enjoys his morning romp with the kitties and is discovering the joy of playing with toys. Zeus returned to AGR, through no fault of his own, after living in a home for two years. He needs a new home where he is loved, secure and cared for. He eats like a perfect gentleman without any food aggression. Zeus has discovered that grooming feels fabulous. He responds instantly to the command ‘No.’ Zeus has started to lean against his foster guardians and has no fear of men as he greeted his foster Dad as if they were long-lost buddies. Zeus has no clue how to jump into the back of an SUV so he needs a hoist, but once in, he enjoys riding in the car. He does need a little work with pulling on the leash on his daily walks. Zeus needs a second chance for happiness in a home that appreciates him. He would do well with another dog for companionship.

Loven

Born: Aug/2007
Color: Brindle
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Loven is a healthy, affectionate love bug that will steal your heart, so says her former foster Mom. Loven was relocated solely because she thought the family cat was the lunch entrée so a home with cats may not be wise. Loven is not shy with people, can be left alone for a couple of hours without getting anxious, has no fear of unusual or loud noises, and barks very little. She enjoys her car rides, is housetrained without a doggie door, and walks well on the leash. Loven is not crated, but she does enjoy sleeping in her crate at night with the door open. Loven is used to being groomed and having her ears cleaned. She knows the commands, leave it and come. She also knows her name and will come when called – if she’s in the mood!

Blair

Born: Jun/2007
Color: Black
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UPDATE: Blair is a healthy, outgoing boy with a loving temperament. He is house trained using a doggie door. He lives with three other dogs and shows no sign of anxiety when left alone for a while. Blair is getting used to the noise of the vacuum but would sure like to know where that darned thunder comes from. If the car door is open, Blair will immediately jump in: he’s offered to drive but his foster guardians tell him he has to wait until he gets his license. Blair only barks when he greets people coming into the home. As he has impeccable house manners, Blair is not crated. He has a cast iron stomach and if it smells like food, Blair will eat it. A good walker on the leash, Blair knows that he is not a sled dog so he doesn’t pull. He knows and responds to his name and the commands: come, wait, and tst. Blair will kiss you or goose you, depending on what part of your anatomy is closest.

Torque

Born: Jan/2006
Color: Brindle
Gender: Male
Housing: Foster
Cats: No
Small Dogs: N/A
Status: ADOPTED!
FOSTER UDPATE: Torque is a beautiful boy and a joy to have around, says his foster mom. He’s healthy, friendly with everyone and loves affection. Torque scurries away from sudden unfamiliar noises, but his natural curiosity sends him back to investigate. He is a sensitive dog so a gentle ‘eh eh’ is all that is needed for correction. If Torque is suddenly awakened from sleep, he sometimes barks or snaps at the air. Torque can be left alone for a while without getting anxious. He is well behaved in the home and is not crated, but a baby gate is used as necessary to restrict access. Torque barks at cats who cheekily saunter through his yard, or if someone comes to the door, but it’s not excessive. He is house trained without a doggie door, enjoys car rides and is leash trained. Torque accepts grooming, knows his name, and responds to ‘wait’  ‘come’ and ‘okay.’ His favorite pastime is goosing humans!

Vixen

Born: Aug/2006
Race name: fka Tinky Winky
Color: Black and white
Gender: Female
Housing: Foster
Cats: With Work
Small Dogs: With Work
Status: ADOPTED!
Hi, my name is Vixen and I am one awesome dog.  They named me Tinky Winky but that name just doesn't do me justice!  I've learned to sit, down (lay), go outside, go to bed, wait, stop, and heel.  I love to play with my toys and those belly rubs send me over the moon!  I also know how to use my puppy-dog eyes to get some treats.  Getting pampered at "spa-days" are my favorite.
I have been well taken care of in a home for the last 1.5 years, but now I would like to find a home where I have a playmate or someone home most of the day.  I am tolerant of cats and ferrets, and do well with kids and other dogs at the dog park.  I am also crate-trained and dog-door trained.  Told ya I'm awesome!  My dog bed, toys, crate, food, and all my doggie stuff are coming with me - just need to find a place to go...if I use my puppy-dog eyes on you, would you take me home?
