A Place for Us Greyhounds
Brandy Jean originated in San Angelo and her DNA results: 50% Greyhound, 12.5% American Staffordshire Terrier, and 37.5% Mixed Breed that includes Sighthound, Terrier, Companion, and Herding. Brandy is fearful in new situations--she will do best in a quiet home with a family that can help her during an adjustment period. She is most comfortable with dogs close to her own size that she can run and play with. Brandy J is one of the most athletic dogs we have seen--she's powerful and fast. Her estimated age is 5 years old. She has become our "Jasmine" at the rescue kennel as she welcomes the newcomers and challenges them to a run in the yard. (The original Jasmine was also surrogate to all kinds of critters and it's a sweet and true story.)We love Brandy J...
Slatex Teacher is in foster care and her new name is Tammy. Isn't she stunning? Her nose is more "Roman-shaped" instead of needle-nosed. How cool is that? She will be available for adoption after she recovers from her spay set for June 17.
Misty was found wandering near Lubbock's East Loop, in an isolated and dangerous area. The family that found her was very concerned and at the recommendation of the animal shelter, contacted APFUG. She was rescued just before a storm! We named her after the nice lady that found her and brought her to safety.
Bailey Rose has a serious medical condition. She was diagnosed with immune-mediated thrombocytopenia which was discovered when she was set up to have her spay and the lab tests found revealed her platelet count was 6--normal platelet counts are in excess of 165,000.
Bailey Rose is under treatment and we will keep you posted. We were heartbroken to hear this news and are taking it week by week to see how she responds to the treatment plan. So far, So good--she is on prednisone and a special medication that will keep her platelets at a normal level.
Slatex Facebook retired from racing due to an ankle injury that is improving with rest and medications. Her nickname is Fannie and she should be available for adoption sometime during June. She is getting long-term antibiotics for her ankle injury. To learn about her background and racing history-click on the link!
MAISIE GOT ADOPTED and her new name is Daisy. She isn't a Lurcher-she is 100% Greyhound. We were able to read her tattoos and her racing name is Kiowa Ducan. She was in the Tulia Animal Shelter and was either sold or traded to hunters that live there. Her birthday is July 11, 2014 and we are so happy that she found a home with the Williams family--Judy and Denny, from Odessa. Daisy's nickname is the Cookie Monster--she counter surfed and scored about 1/2 package of cookies. These Greyhounds are so amusiing....
We got his DNA back and he is 50% Greyhound, 25% Whippet, 12.5% American Bulldog, and 12.5% Corgi. He was rescued from the Abilene, TX animal shelter. Cole is only about 2-years old--he is in good health and doing better on the leash. We have not tested him with small dogs or cats. He's lots of fun--he will play fetch and is very athletic!
Bear, Jr was rescued in the Abilene area. His DNA results are: 25% Greyhound, 25% Airdale Terrier, 25% American Staffordshire Terrier, 12.5% Irish Wolfhound, and 12%% Mixed. His health has improved despite anemia that was so severe he required a blood transfusion. Huge thanks to Celeste-the Wolfhound's family allowing her to be his donor. Bear recovered from his anemia and has had his neuter. He is on the Slow-Kill regimen to eradicate his heartworm infection. If you are interested in fostering or adopting him--please contact us.
Group rescues three Lurchers in two days...
We were notified about Misty, Dakota, and Sage all in the course of one day. Dakota and Sage are at the Tulia animal shelter and we will post their pics soon. Dakota is a female, Saluki-mix and Sage is a white and red female who appears to be a full-blooded Greyhound. Sage only has one eye but seems healthy based on the report from the animal control officer. Updates and pics will be posted soon.
Mikaela adopted Stella--and they drove off into the sunset in Mikaela's fun and jazzy car! Outstanding!!
Cecilia--nickname CeCi was rescued off of the streets of Lubbock. She has gained weight, had her spay, lost a tooth, and is now ready to move into your home! Her age is uncertain, but based on her appearance--with a bit of gray in her muzzle--we believe that she is 4-5 years old.
Her DNA results were 62.5% Saluki and 37.5% Greyhound. She is 100% Love and will make a wonderful addition to some lucky family.
Slatex Vestas had a mysterious visitor. He really enjoyed the attention--and after things settle down--who knows--this mysterious lady and her family might adopt this big, sweet, and lovely Greyhound.
Ellie got adopted! She is pictured here with her new family--Tabitha and her Mom, Tricia. Ellie's new address is in Odessa, Texas--We are so happy and thrilled.
Luna has been adopted by her foster Mom!! Congratulations to Gwen and happy days ahead for sweet Luna.
