Casey Macy was adopted by Jessica and Heather--they live in Connecticut. Setting a newrecord for the longest distance traveled for an out-of-town adoption! Her new family financed and arranged her transportation after they fell in love with her online. She's resting with her new pack which includes another Lurcher named Coco and a Greyhound named Ivy. They seem to be getting along very well.
The Montes family adopted AnnaBelle--they've renamed her Riley. She is an interesting mixture of several breeds of sighthounds--a total Love Bug--and adorable!!
UPDATE--DOLLY HAS BEEN ADOPTED
Eric and Michelle have adopted two lovely Greyhounds from APFUGR. During January, they adopted Poppy--she's the white and brindle one--they returned in February to adopt Rafe--the lovely brindle. This is a well-known tradition among Greyhound enthusiasts known as "chipping"--from the old potato chip advertisement--bet you can't eat just one--but with Greyhounds--it's bet you can't adopt just one!
Starkey was adopted by Vickie and Jeff from Edgewood, NM. His new name is Newt and he is very good hands with his new family that have many years experience with Greyhounds and Vickie is a veterinarian. Outstanding!
We are happy to consider your adoption application. I will personally contact each and every person or family that applies to adopt. If you live out-of-town, we are doing "virtual home visits" and this seems to be working very well. Approved applicants are asked to come to Lubbock to meet and pick up their dog, in most cases. Testing for cat and/or miniature dog safety has gotten more complicated and if homes emerge that do not have small dogs/cats--they will get first preference.
Homes with fenced yards and/or Sighthound experience are preferred.
Feel free to contact me by phone or email.

Tex got adopted by Marissa and Jeffrey--they drove to Lubbock from New Mexico on a very cold day and took home a wonderful and special dog. Tex was smitten with them and they were equally impressed with his winning and affectionate personality.
