Benny of Ruckus

 

 

 
Basic Information: Racing Name: Benny of Ruckus, Kennel Name: Benny, DOB: 1/27/10, Male, 4 Years Old, Color: Black, Racing Weight: 77 lbs.

Benny is back. Benny of Ruckus , aka Benny, is once again Benny of FOG, but only temporarily we hope. Benny was one of our last dogs adopted before we closed the Hialeah kennel. He went out with another greyhound, but proved to be too alpha for them to live together, so he returned to us, and has decided that he would be better off as an only dog (I'€™m an only child and there'€™s nothing wrong with me, except maybe spoiled beyond recognition) and in an environment without cats.

Benny is big and still energetic for a four year old and although not required, he would probably enjoy an average or large fenced in yard more than some of his couch potato cronies at the kennel. People are one of Benjamin'€™s favorite pastimes, he loves to be around them and play with them.

Although only in a home for a short time, Ben still maintains his beautiful teeth, and those of you who know greyhounds, know that beautiful teeth are not always standard equipment.

Benny sits with his bag packed by the door, he was one of the last dogs adopted out of the old Hialeah kennel and he wants to start off the new FOG kennel story as being the first or at least one of the first to be adopted in the new chapter.

If you are looking for a nice big happy and energetic black dog, Benny should be at the top of your list. Of course our current list is quite short at this time, but that doesn'€™t take anything away from Benny. Come on over and check out Big Ben, he'€™ll be waiting for you.

Acehigh Jessie

 

 

 
Basic Information: Racing Name: Acehigh Jessie, Kennel Name: Jessie, DOB: 3/28/12, Female, 2 Years Old, Color: Dark Brindle, Racing Weight: 68 lbs.

Acehigh Jessie, aka, Jessie, is now available for adoption through FOG. Jessie is a return, although from my information, it was through no fault of her own. Her humans had to move and couldn'€™t take her with them, so they gave her to their daughter, who has an infant and two cats, which apparently didn'€™t work out, for Jessie at least.

She is a gorgeous two year old dark brindle with a dark face, so it definitely wasn'€™t her looks that cost her home. Jessie is a quiet and kind of shy girl; she is crate trained and is one of those dogs that finds comfort in her crate. If you are looking for a party animal, Jess is probably not the girl for you, she prefers to be a homebody, listening to nature, with the exception of thunder, and chilling out.

She likes the plain and simple life, and takes great pride in her personal appearance, which you can tell just by looking at her. She just got a pedicure which shows off her white tip toes and is waiting for her real forever humans to come and take her home with them.

Jess usually wears her ears in the unusual 45 slant reverse style, with one slanted up at a forty five degree angle and the other slanted down at 225 degrees, not common for most greyhounds but I have seen it as far north as Jacksonville.

Jessie is also a very low mileage racing greyhound, with only four professional races, so there is very little of the standard wear and tear associated with the racing dogs. She'€™s just over two, so she should have many years of love and affection for anyone who'€™s looking for love in all the right places. Come check her out, you may just make a fast friend for life.

Fuzzys Legend

 

 

 
Racing Name: Fuzzys Legend, Kennel Name: Legend, DOB: 1/3/10, Male, 2 Years Old, Color: Red, Racing Weight: 83 lbs.

The Fuzz, known in the racing world as Fuzzys Legend, arrived at our kennel recently after a less than distinguished racing career. He ran nineteen races, reached C company and was never seen again at the track.

So for whatever reason, the big boy is now with us, waiting for his forever home. This probably will not be a long wait. He'€™s the largest dog in the kennel currently, at 83 pounds, so if you are in the market for the biggest greyhound, look no further. Fuzz is a fine specimen, beautiful red color and just off the track looks, showing all the ribs all the time, just like me, except the ones I show are on the plate.

He is a gentle dog, nice disposition, and likes people as well as his own brethren. The best idea is to come on down and check him out for yourself. These animals make fabulous pets, check out our facebook page, there'€™s usually some tales of happy tails alumni that have left us and found their loving forever homes. Come see for yourself, it may be a life changing event for both you and the greyhound.
