Domino

 

 
Domino raced under the name A Star Mr. Domino and had 106 races. He has an amazing pedigree but even the best racers are retired eventually and so Domino is looking for a home at the ripe old age of 3. Greyhounds have a natural life span of 10 - 13 years which is actually pretty good for large dog. So his retirement will be longer than his career!! He'd really love to spend it with you. He is a large, strong boy who only wants to please people. He's happy and healthy and loves life. He's looking forward to what comes next. He will make a great house dog!

A lot of people don't want to adopt black dogs. They think they are scary or mean but they aren't. They are just a different color!! It's the way the genes distributed when the litter was born and it has no beariing on their personality. Many groups won't accept the black dogs because they are harder to adopt. We like to explain to people about the problem and hope that they will step forward and give some of these wonderful, gentle giants who happen to be black, a good home. (please read our section on our website about "The Black Dog Problem"!)

To arrange to meet this dog and our other available greys, visit our website: www.friendsofgreyhounds.org for all the details. You'll find our manual of care, our application and lots of good information. We are based in South Florida and prefer to adopt locally so we are available to help our adopters get settled.

If you are local and would like to visit, 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. You can also email us at fogdogs@comcast.net or check the website for other ways to reach us. We'd love to hear from you!

Greyhounds make the most amazing pets. Come make a fast friend today. You'll be glad you did.

Randy

 

 

 
I don't think i have to write a lot about this boy. Just look at those pictures!! He is soooo good looking. Plus he's sweet and young and healthy and happy!
Randy was a racing dog and ran 92 races. He started at about 18 mos and finished his 92nd professional race the end of February.

Now he is at our kennel looking for a new career as a housedog. He walks well on a leash or can run circles in the yard and then will take a long, greyhound-like nap. Greyhounds are famous for their long naps. Everyone thinks because they run so fast that they are "high energy". But it's just the opposite - - They run really fast and then they nap a long, long time to re-build that energy. The most common call we get from new greyhound adopters is "there's something wrong with my dog. All he does is sleep!!" They aren't called Couch Potatoes for nothing!!

All of our dogs have been to the vet and are spayed or neutered, have all their shots and tests and are ready to go to their new homes. To arrange to meet this dog and our other available greys, visit our website: www.friendsofgreyhounds.org for all the details. You'll find our manual of care, our application and lots of good information. We are based in South Florida and locally so we can provide you with and support if you have questions.

If you are local and ready to visit, 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. You can also email us at fogdogs@comcast.net We'd love to hear from you!

Ringo

 

 
Ringo is big, strong boy who would love to have a family to love and maybe a nice fenced yard to run and play in. He is only two years old and after 36 races, is retired from his racing career and ready to race his way into your heart.

He is a tall boy but only 68 pounds so he's on the smaller side for a greyhound. He's young and playful and like most teenagers, just wants a chance to have a good time. He has never been a housedog so you would need to teach him the rules but he is eager to learn and quite happy with a crate when you are busy. Greyhounds sleep a WHOLE lot so a crate and a soft bed or comforter are just perfect for them. They are not barkers and they are quite clean. If you've never had a greyhound, you really should try one. Or talk to a greyhound owner and they'll tell you.

You are invited to visit Ringo and his other friends at our kennel in Sunrise. Simply 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. You can also email us at fogdogs@comcast.net And our website has lots of ways to reach us, too. We'd love to hear from you!
