A Place for Us Greyhounds
Lucas was bred to hunt. He is a full-blooded Greyhound and only 1-2 years old. He is at our kennel and needs a foster home. Lucas is good on the leash. We do not believe he should live with cats--he may be okay with children. He has a loving and lively spirit.
Racing School Drop-outs looking for homes---
Chelsea has been re-rescued. She was among the group we had gotten from Mitchell County in 2016. She was recently abandoned and relinquished from her adoptive home through no fault of her own. Chelsea is only about 5-6 years old. She cannot live with cats but is fine with all sizes of dogs. Her temperament is fun and goofy--but she is wary and guarded with first meetings. She is a bit fluffy due to taking steriods; she has been weaned off of them--we have her on a good diet, and she is enjoying extra walks to get back in shape. Her DNA results are interesting and she is 38.5% Greyhound, 12.5% Wolfhound, 25% American Staffordshire Terrier, and 25% Mixed Breed.
Lulu has been pre-adopted!She is moving to the Texas Hill Country, tomorrow--June 27th!! Lulu had raced as JSK Lumpy Donut. This sweet dog has done it all--raced, had puppies, and even lived in a home. She is safe to live with kids, all sizes of dogs, but not cats! Don't let her white face fool you--she is a spry 6-year old that will celebrate her 7th birthday in August. Here's the link to her background. She's a winner--that's for sure!!
We're so proud of Tula. She is coming out of her shell and doing well on leash walks. She is very at ease in the house, is crate trained, and has never had an accident in the house. She should be ready for a home very soon. Her DNA is 62.5% Greyhound, 12.5% Scottish Deerhound, 12.5% Borzoi, and 12.5% mixed breed. wow!
Boris is under treatment for heartworm and will not be available for adoption until he finishes his treatment. He is a great dog and his background is that he is a Whippet/Huskey mix. We will keep you posted!

Amelia is 2-years old and in foster care, in Lubbock! She is fine to live with smalls dogs and children. She gets along fine with the family's Salukis. Amelia is doing very well on her leash walks and is crate trained. Here's the link to her background. She is a full-blooded Greyhound that was not suited to racing. UPDATE--AMELIA HAS BEEN PRE-ADOPTED AND WILL MOVE TO MIDLAND AFTER THE JULY 4TH HOLIDAY. WE ARE SO EXCITED FOR HER AND HER NEW FAMILY--THE THOMPSON'S
We believe that they are brothers and only 1-2 years old! Lloyd is the smooth-coated, tan one and Brooks is the brindle one with a longer coat. Lloyd's DNA results were 62.5% Greyhound and 38.5% Saluki. We will let you know how Brooks' DNA turns out. They are young and likely from the same background where the owner is notorious for not caring for his dogs that were bred to hunt--he doesn't feed them or provide a safe, secure environment for them--and that is why both of them were out on the streets--looking for food and shelter. We are so happy to have both of them alive and well. After we rescued them from the shelter--they were gravely ill requiring special care, hospitalizations, and medications. We would love to adopt them out to the same home--but most importantly--we want both of them in a loving home as soon as possible--they are very sweet and loving and deserving of a good life and loving families.
