Annie

 

 

 
This is Annie. She is 100% greyhound and 100% lovable! She is petite and fun and fast and never met a person she didn't like. She's a lively personality and very, very sweet.

She is 2 years old and very cute. She will be three on June 28th. She tested cat tolerant so she should have no problem living with felines as well as other dogs. She has beautiful markings and big, brown, attentive eyes!

Annie went out to an adoption home and has come back to us. She did not particularly get along with their other dog (also a greyhound!). It could certainly have been a personality clash or something more on either of their parts. We did just find out that she had a pretty bad urinary tract infection. We put her on medication and it should be cleared up in soon. Was that the cause of her crabbiness? It is entirely possible. It also just could have been that she didn't like him. She has an old racing injury in her leg that has healed but it slightly imperfect. Nothing more can be done for it so may be it bothers her. Or it could just be her nature (ask my husband about me - he's familiar with that grumpiness problem!!) Or maybe the whole thing has been misinterpreted.

Annie is not perfect but she's perfect for someone - Maybe you? There's a lot of sweet dog in her but she needs the right home to bring it out. She is affectionate and once she knows you, I suspect she will be an incredibly devoted dog.

Kango

 

 

 
Kango is a special needs greyhound and not for everyone. We have other greys available, too. Kango is tall, dark and handsome. He's a big, rowdy teenager. He has a very dark brindle coat and strong features and looks scary like a guard dog should. He would be a great guard dog if jumping at people to get them to pet you is considered guarding. He is very strong and very tall and just wants a good home with a yard and a good reason to run a little each day. He's only three years old and still has a lot of energy. Kango has some very special needs and can only be adopted to someone with greyhound experience, a fenced yard, and a huge, huge heart.

Kango was in a bad collision in his last race and his skull was fractured. That has been healing and is almost unnoticable from the outside. Yes, this is where the "But. . ." comes in. I guess when a big paw goes through your forehead, it does some damage to the inside. Kango is losing his eyesight to Progressive Retinal Atrophy due to the injury.

This is a first for FoG and we're just feeling our way through this ourselves. The canine eye doctor tells us that he will most likely be totally blind by the end of the year. He's not in pain from the injury but he is very confused and very afraid. Kango is a sighthound who is losing his sight and he's not taking it well. I don't know how to explain it to him. He can see best in very well lit areas with minimal clutter. At this point he's not seeing well in our kennel as the lighting is not strong and the sound echoes in our transformed garage. It is scary for him and he barks and snarls to show he's the boss and to chase away the demons. But take him out in the daylight on a leash in the yard and he's so much better, more relaxed and more secure.

He's not perfect but he's a huge lump of love, a hard-working greyhound, and he needs a home. He needs a fenced yard, minimal obstructions, no cats, small dogs or children, and a human or two he can trust. I think another greyhound in the home would be good, too. He needs an indoor kennel area (like a large crate) that is all his and feels comfortable and secure. He needs to find this human caretaker/ companion now so that he has someone he can trust to turn to as the lights get dimmer for him. You'll need to be in our general South Florida area so we can help if you need us. Kango is very fast and very confused.

I am hoping an experienced greyhound adopter out there will step forward and care for Kango. He deserves a little time in a real home. Our kennel is not ideal for him. FoG will help with the expenses for his food and vet expenses and whatever he needs and the adoption fee is negotiable.. He has a lot of love to give. Please give him an outlet for that love.

To arrange to meet Kango, call us at 954-578-0072 to make an appointment to come to our kennel in Sunrise. If we're not around, the recording will give you our cell numbers. Call, text, or email us (fogdogs@comcast.net) with your questions or concerns. We'd love to hear from you and let you meet Kango and his friends!

Casey

 

 

 
Casey is a sweet and quiet dog - kind of insecure. He is very young (will be two in July) and didn't run any professional races. He is healthy and strong and has huge eyes that just plead with you to love him. When he first arrived, he was afraid of noises, and rain and thunder. When he is afraid, he doesn't bark or react and is not at all protective. He just tries with all his might to run away and he is very good at that.

We were told by Casey's kennel handlers that he would calm down and be less afraid. We have had Casey for a few weeks now and they were right. He's not Mr. Congeniality yet but he is definitely better than he was and Jerry even got a kiss from him! Investing time in this guy will yield amazing dividends. He's big, sturdy guy and the markings on his face make him always look worried. But he learns routine and likes a nice ear rub once in a while. There's a sweet, sweet boy inside that blanket of insecurity. And the up-side to his insecurity is that he has tested to be quite tolerant of cats and will probably be able to live with cats and small dogs without a problem.

I would be reluctant to place him with small children as he is still a large, insecure dog.

Casey is handsome in his own big dog way. He will require an understanding and reasonably quiet family with a VERY well fenced yard and a lot of patience. But I predict that this guy will at some point, relax and accept this family and his home. And I will go out on a limb, based on previous dogs we've seen come through here, that he will be a wonderful, loving and totally devoted dog. It will take time but it will be worth it. Stability is the key for him. Can you provide that?? He needs a lot of love.

We are based in South Florida and we are committed to adopting to local residents so that you and your new dog have the backup and support available if you have questions.

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!

Taylor

 

 

 
Everybody loves white dogs and we get so few white greyhounds. Taylor is handsome and sweet and has a great happy outlook on life. He ran 27 successful races but in the 28th, he was bumped and messed up his hind leg. He's been in a cast which has now gone away, and they determined he's not going to run professionally again. So Taylor has been retired. That's okay with us!!

Our vet took an xray of the leg and Taylor has an appointment with a specialist. It has been a while since the injury so there probably isn't anything to be done but we'll find out for sure. He puts it down to walk but holds it up to run. If you have a lot of stairs or are looking for a partner for long walks, he might not be ready for your house. But for most of Florida's homes, he'll be a fine fit. For now, he's a happy go lucky guy settling into our adoption kennel routine while he waits for his new home.

Taylor is a real sweetheart and he is only two years old. He'll be three the end of June. He's a doll!! Great gentle personality and very good looking. It was hard to determine his tolerance for cats as he is still a little shaky on the bad leg. He may be able to live with a cat depending on their personality.

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 race and the 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!!
