Super Stars

What are Superstar Dogs? They are beautiful, sweet, and patient greyhounds that have been at our shelter for more than six months or were settled in a home but returned when their adopters could no longer care for them. Each of these wonderful dogs is still looking for the right adopter and a forever home to call his or her own.

Casey

 

 

 
Casey is sweet, quiet and insecure. He is young (was 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 had Casey for a few weeks and he got much better. Jerry even got a kiss from him! Investing time in this shy-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.

So he was adopted out but he seemed to regress in his new home and his mom reluctantly returned him. She felt her home was not right for him. He needs more activity and probably another greyhound in the home. And the up-side to his insecurity is that he is cat tolerant and will probably be able to live with cats and small dogs without a problem.

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.

To arrange to meet Casey 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 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.

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:

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.

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.
