Otto

 

 

 
Basic Information: Racing Name: Kennel Name: Otto, DOB: 10/4/4, Male, 10 Years Old, Color: White and Black, Racing Weight: 69 lbs.

Otto was adopted and lived with another retired racing greyhound and their military family for over four years. Then Uncle Sam told their humans that they had to move. Anyone who knows the military knows Uncle Sam don'€™t give a ham about your personal wants and needs, when you are assigned somewhere, you go, so they did. Unfortunately Otto and his sister were not allowed to go, so they became the standard '€˜returned through no fault of their own'€™ orphans. Otto's sister was since adopted, but Otto is now with us and is looking for his final retirement home to spend his golden years.

There is a lot to be said for adopting an older dog that a lot of people won'€™t want, something to do with peace and satisfaction, for you and the dog. Otto is not cat tolerant, or not tolerant enough to be a good fit in a home with our feline friends, so if you have a cat, you may want to pass.

If you are one of those people who get great joy out of helping another soul and giving (as well as receiving) the comfort of seeing them spend their final years with dignity and can put them in a house with love and a soft bed, you will want to check out Otto. Like myself, Otto doesn't act his age, he still has that old get up and go romp, but only for a short time just like the younger greyhounds, then it'€™s back to the couch.

You can call Michelle or Jerry at FOG: (954) 578-0072, or email them at fogdogs@comcast.net, and set up an appointment at your convenience. Otto is currently being fostered, and is available to be seen upon appointment, just contact Friends of Greyhounds.

Rocky

 

 

 
Basic Info: Kennel Name: Rocky, Color: White and Red Fawn, DOB: 05/24/09, 5 years old, Racing Weight: 71 lbs.

Rocky is a big, gorgeous, high-spirited dog. He would do best in a home with a fenced yard or a close dog park because this boy loves to run and play. Those long, long legs really carry him around the curves quickly. He was a professional racing dog and ran 178 professional races. He must have won a bunch of money or they wouldn'€™t have kept racing him! But eventually time caught up to him. He broke his leg at one point and it is now fully healed but he wasn'€™t able to race as well any longer so he came to us for adoption.

Rocky is tall and handsome, white with red fawn spots, and will stop traffic with his good looks. He seems to know it too! He is a really happy, fun dog. He loves people and will lean on you just to be close. He'€™s a lot like little kids who wrap their arms around mom or dad for security. Rocky is a very loving guy, just looking for someone to pay attention to and love him. (He cannot live with a cat though - too many years of training to race - it wouldn'€™t be good for the cat!)

For more information about how to make an appointment to visit Rocky in person or have him brought to your home, or for any other information about adopting a retired racing greyhound, please visit our website: www.friendsofgreyhounds.org. If you have specific questions or are ready to meet Rocky, feel free to email us at fogdogs@comcast.net or call the office at 954-578-0072. Friends of Greyhounds has other wonderful greyhounds, too. if Rocky isn't the right one for you, maybe another one is! Feel free to call.

Kingsley

 

 

 
Basic Info: Kennel Name: Kingsley, Color: Red Brindle, DOB: 07/18/13

Kingsley is almost two years young, and a handsome red brindle boy. He comes from a wonderful pedigree of greyhound racers but this little boy is a very, very scardy cat. We named him Kingsley hoping it will instill him with self confidence and strength. Hasn't seemed to have worked so far.

He has not adjusted enough to get a cat test on him but I sincerely doubt if he would have any problem living with a cat - unless the cat beat him up. That would be possible and that would be a problem!!

He needs a quiet household and a loving parent or two to patiently help him develop confidence in himself and trust in others. He is very mild mannered and sweet and quite small for a racing greyhound. As shy as he is, I can't believe he even made it to the track. He has great potential as a clinging, snuggle bunny.

As for house training, he has never had an accident in his crate and usually that translates into a well trained house dog. But he absolutely needs his own private fenced yard as leash walks in public would most likely be impossible.

If you have questions about Kingsley and are in the South Florida adoption area, feel free to email me (fogdogs@comcast.net) as he is staying in our local kennel.

Buddy

 

 
Basic Information: Kennel Name: Buddy, Color: Black, DOB: 11/22/11, Cat Test: Pending

Adopt the disabled! Well for now - he has a cast on his leg. We'€™ve been told it was an ugly break. He sure gets around well on 3 legs though and he'€™ll be '€œheck'€ on wheels when that thing comes off. Other than the leg, he'€™s perfectly healthy. But with that in place, we haven'€™t cat tested him as yet. (Our cat test area is my living room and walking on tile or scatter rugs in a cast doesn'€™t give you good footing for a cat test. One wrong move and he'€™d be in TWO casts!!)

A few more weeks and we should be four legged again. He'€™s a neat dog and learns the routine quickly. Seems to get along with everyone and is content with a soft cushion and a toy. He tries to run and play but is not very successful right now.

He has a black shiny coat and white blaze on his chest and white tips on his feet (French tips!). His markings are almost a mirror image of Fancy '€“ except for the cast and'€¦ His tail is kind of a mess. He apparently wags his tail so much that he'€™s slammed it on his kennel and worn a lot of the fur off of it. He'€™ll be a great addition to your loving, happy, SOFTER home!

If you are interested in learning more about Buddy, please email: fogdogs@comcast.net. For more information, please visit our website: www.friendsofgreyhounds.org.

Chester

 

 

 
Basic Info: Kennel Name: Chester, Color: White and Brindle, DOB: 06/29/09

Chester is a recent return to the kennel through no fault of his own. His family was unable to keep him because they were unable to leash walk him any longer. Chester prefers a fenced yard, since he needs attention while walking on leash. He is a high energy dog who likes to romp and play, so a fenced yard would be perfect for him.

Chester is cat tolerant and house trained, and ready to be part of your family. Won't you give him a second chance at his forever home?

You can meet Chester in person by arranging an appointment through Michelle or Jerry at Friends of Greyhounds. Call (954) 578-0072, or email fogdogs@comcast.net. For more details about adopting a retired racing greyhound, please visit our website at: www.friendsofgreyhounds.org.
