A Place for Us Greyhounds
We were so upset to find out that Stella has a Heartworm infection. The x-rays indicated some damage to her heart and lungs. She is so sweet and we have all fallen in love with her. Stella's heartworm treatment went well. She is off of activity restrictions and starting to gain back her strength and stamina. Come out the the Kennel and give her some hugs!
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. It looks as if she and Princess Leia were from the same litter or pack of hunters. 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 age is estimated to be 4-5 years old.
...and available for adoption! She has done so well. Bella hasn't had any accidents in her foster home. She is living with a small Yorkie-mix and has not shown any signs of aggression--also, she has no interest in bothering the farmyard chickens! This sweet 6-year young Greyhound is a wonderful and loving dog that would fit well into most homes. She has really thrived after retiring from her life as a "hunter".
Cooper was rescued from the Lubbock Animal Shelter and is currently at the rescue kennel in Lubbock. Based on his microchip history--he is at least 6-years old. We think he may be part-Saluki. He needs some medical care--a dental, 4dx test, and basic immunizations. He is a very sweet dog with some training and a nice temperament. His family did not respond to calls from the animal shelter after he was found as a stray.
Slatex Diamond is doing well in foster care. Her new name is Gemma. This sweet broodie has worked hard--racing and having several litters of puppies. Her last litter was born on June 1st. One of her pups, born in 2013, is the lovely and shy Greyhound named George--and his family is also fostering Gemma! How cool is that?
Huge thanks to Vanessa Gunn, our director in Odessa, for doing Bella's photo shoot!
This is Frida--she was relinquished by area hunters. Frida is at the rescue kennel and has not been tested with small dogs or cats--preliminary observations are not very optimistic about placing her in a home with small dogs or cats.
She is a very nice and self-assured dog--only about 3-4 years old. Frida did well in foster care. No accidents, she got along very well with the family's two Greyhounds, and is crate-trained. Due to vacation plans, she is now back at the kennel, in Lubbock. DNA results were: 87.5% Greyhound and 12.5% Borzoi.
Ellie and Bongo were rescued from the Tulia Animal Shelter. Follow the link to learn more about these sweet Lurchers!

Bella's Photo Shoot!
Tex was rescued in an isolated area south of Lubbock. He is young and we just love him. His DNA test is most interesting--he is 25% Greyhound, 25% Saluki, and 12.5 % of the following breeds--Huskey, Labrador, German Shepherd, and Rottweiler. Tex has been pre-adopted and he will move in as soon as his family's new home is completed--it's brand-new and located near Lubbock. We are so excited!
