Jagger

 

 

 
Basic Info: Racing Name: DKC Jagger, Kennel Name; Jag, Color: Brindle, DOB: 05/23/09

Jagger is a handsome brindle dog, strong and well behaved. His racing name was DKC Jagger and he ran 151 races in West Virginia before his trainer brought him down to South Florida to Friends of Greyhounds. He figured this guy would appreciate a retirement in Florida!! We found him a great dad in Hollywood and the two of them were inseparable. But dad'€™s health has deteriorated and the assisted living home won'€™t let Jagger join him. At the age of 8, he is homeless for reasons beyond his control.

The photos with the brown fence background are from his first adoption in May, 2014, but he still looks a lot like that - just a bit heavier which on him, looks really good. Racing dogs are too skinny anyway. We'€™ll get new photos up soon - or you can come meet him in person at our kennel in Sunrise. (Phone numbers are below - or email me!!)

A local blogger let Jagger come visit with him for a few days when we were overloaded. He posted a great blog about him. You can see it at: http://www.dustyandme.com/2017/09/jagger-gets-break-from-fog-kennels.html

So Jagger is back with Friends of Greyhounds. It has taken a some time but he is adjusting to kennel life again. Jagger has lived in a home and will not require any training. He'€™s a sweetheart of a guy, polite and quiet and well behaved. Greyhounds have a natural lifespan of 12 to 14 years so he has a lot of love left to give. He'€™s excellent on a leash but would love an off-leash run at a dog park or fenced yard once or twice a week, just to get the kinks out.

Other than his age, his only other slightly negative point is that he is not cat or kid tolerant. He likes people and most other dogs - depending on the other dog's personality. Jagger is a laid back and quiet sort of guy.

Senior dogs make the best pets. They already know the basic rules and they value their quiet time. They are patient and loving. They don'€™t need all those trips to the park and they really like taking naps with you!. Jagger is healthy and happy but homeless. He deserves a good home. Can you help with that?

Contact Michelle at 954-937-9663 (cell) or 954-578-0072 (office/kennel) or by email fogdogs@comcast.net. We know the right home is out there for Jagger. If we find the right home, we will be willing to discount the adoption fee in acknowledgement of Jagger'€™s age. He's a good dog and a sweet spirit.

Come make a fast friend today. You'€™ll be glad you did.

Kelly

 

 

 
Kelly is a very special guy with a shiny black coat . He is a medium size for a greyhound and only 4 years old. He has a whole lot of love to give! He is really fast and would love to run around with you in the backyard. But going to a dog park once in a while is okay, too!! And once he's run, he'll sleep like a baby for the next three days!

Kelly has a some training to live in a house already. He was in a home for four months and the loved him dearly. He was originally called PJ Loaded Dice (his race name) but they named him Kelly. They had a fenced yard of gorgeous green grass of over an acre and it was truly greyhound heaven. Mom spoiled him with home cooked chicken and Dad took him everywhere.

BUT. . . Kelly resented the six grandchildren when they came to visit and he finally snapped at one. That's a greyhound no-no and he had to come back to us.

Kelly (yes you can change his name - it's okay) doesn't need an acre to run in but he does need a new home - without children. He's a good boy and wants someone to love. He already knows all about living in a home. He doesn't have accidents in the house and he doesn't bark unless it's necessary (burglars, UPS, etc.) and he has a whole lot of love to give. We even have a letter from his first mom who will tell you about Kelly in her own words. Wouldn't you like to have a beautiful, healthy, young dog who is already housetrained???

A local blogger has done a video profile of Kelly - check it out at:
http://www.dustyandme.com/2017/10/kelly-is-ready-for-another-great-home.html
Greyhounds are the easiest big dog you ever lived with - just ask anybody you see with one!! And Kelly is definitely a sweetheart. He only wants to please you. He has a beautiful black coat and great ears. Greys love to travel. They have been driven from track to track and are great at jumping into the car and riding long distances. They lie down and take a nap!! Once they know your rules, they will do everything they can to be the best roommate you ever had.

Friends of Greyhounds wants to find the right home for each of our dogs and we don't want anyone to live with a dog that isn't right for them. We'll do all we can to help you find the right dog and in turn help each greyhound find the right home.

Stormy

 

 

 
Stormy loves everything and is always ready to go - - well, unless she's due for a nap. She can run, run, run like the wind. But once she stops, it's time to nap, nap, nap. Even young greyhounds like Stormy take their naps regularly! Walks are nice and we run for fun, but nothing beats a good pillow.
Stormy is healthy, happy, and three years old. She has been to the vet and is ready to go to her new home. She flunked our 'cat test' so she will not be able to live with a cat. She is very people oriented, very young, and just wants to play and be with you. She would do really well with a fenced backyard with or without another dog to run with. Of course, a regular visit to the dog park (or a friend's house with a fenced yard) would be terrific, too. Stormy has a great, happy personality and a good, wagging tail!! Come meet her!

Stormy was recently featured by a local blogger and he captured her personality well. Check it out here: http://www.dustyandme.com/2017/09/hurricane-stormy-wants-to-blow-you-away.html

Logan

 

 

 
Logan originally came to us as a retired racing dog. His racing name was Fuzzys Bob Dylan and he was born in 8/16/11. He only had 6 races and they gave him to us to adopt out November, 2013. By New Years Day, 2014, he was in his new home. But it is a big family and he had some problems. Logan came back to us June 1, 2017.

Friends of Greyhounds works with our families that may have a problem with a dog but we are always here to take back a dog if that is what the family wants. We do ask that they write up some detail (the good and the bad) so that a new family knows what they are getting with this dog. Because we are honest and open about return reasons, we have a better chance of getting a dog into the right home the second time. We have a detailed letter about Logan'€™s life and problems in his old home so we don'€™t repeat these scenarios. Logan never had a problem with the immediate family but did not like other people coming into the house and he is willing to be protective.

So Logan is back in the kennel. He'€™s not happy with the food but otherwise is handling it quite well. He has been very sweet to everyone here, human & canine. He is a good looking boy if you are willing to look past a bevvy of scars and a few missing toes. He has beautiful eyes and deserves a break. He is not cat tolerant and because of his history, I would prefer he be in a home with adults.

We would love for you to come meet Logan and all of his kennel-mates. Our kennel information as well as the application and handbook of care are on our website Specific questions or to make an appointment to meet Logan or another dog, please call or email us!!

A local blogger (Scott of Dustyandme) has done a nice blog with a video about Logan and his search for the right home. I hope you will check it out at: http://www.dustyandme.com/2017/10/logan-is-one-of-kind.html
Logan is not a perfect greyhound and may be a bit of a adjustment challenge. But he has a sweet nature that needs one more chance. Logan's adoption fee is negotiable for the right home. Please don't overlook him. He'll take a little more work but once he lets down his guard with you, you'll see a wonderful, insecure boy who has a lot of love to give.

Kal

 

 

 
Kal (short for Turbo Kal) is a tall, handsome black dog who has just come into our kennel. He has a beautiful coat and great features and is only 3 years young - born March 2, 2014. He is very attentive and happy to be with people.

Kal is a high energy dog and will need a fenced yard or a parent who will take him to a dog park regularly to run. He is tall and strong and absolutely gorgeous. He is probably too strong to live with young children as he is still infantile himself. He's a happy, happy guy though and once you have him adjusted to your routine, he's going to be a wonderful dog.

A local Blog (Dusty and Me) did a nice profile on Kal. You can see it here: http://www.dustyandme.com/2017/10/the-world-is-kals-toy-box.html

You'll find our manual of care, our application and lots of good information. Our Facebook group is quite active, too. We are based in South Florida.

Mercury

 

 

 
This is Mercury. He has just arrived in our kennel and he's a beautiful, very red, slender boy. He came to us with a body that's definitely built for speed. He's young and energetic and is going to be a very sweet pet. He had a number of small nicks and scratches and what looked like gouges from the track but they are healing amazingly quickly and many are not even visible any longer. He came to us rough but he's gonna be a knock out once he's in the softer environment of a real home.

He flunked his cat test so he is not a good fit for a home with a cat. (Small dogs may be another story as dogs know the difference.)

He's smart, young, and has the potential to be gorgeous!! He'll be a great housedog. Retired racing Greyhounds make wonderful pets. They've had a lot of training that translates very well into housedog behavior.

Recently a local Blogger did a great profile on Mercury. You can see it here: http://www.dustyandme.com/2017/09/mercury-might-steal-your-heart.html

We would love for you to come meet this greyhound and all of his kennel-mates. Our kennel information as well as the application and handbook of care are on our website, For specific questions or to make an appointment to meet our dogs, please call or email us!!

Fella

 

 

 
Oshkosh Fella is a very handsome, red brindle young boy. He is truly built for speed but he's now looking for a nice retirement home. He'll want to run a couple times a week but only for a few minutes. Then a comfy couch or pillow and a buddy to watch TV with and that will complete a greyhound's dream home!

Fella is four years old & his birthday is February 8, 2013. But he's such a sweetheart, he should have been born on Valentine's day. He's a gorgeous boy and won't last long here at the kennel. He's not going to be good with a cat but he is a sweetheart of a dog and won't last long. Come visit Fella!

If you have room to share with Fella or one of his kennel-mates, come on out and meet these wonderful dogs. Our kennel information as well as the application and handbook of care are on our website (www.friendsofgreyhounds.org) For specific questions or to make an appointment to meet our dogs, please call or email us!!
