A Place for Us Greyhounds
Harper has a family! Desirea and her husband, Gary drove to Seymour to pick her up. Desirea adopted her first Greyhound--a sweet brindle female from the group eleven years ago and when Charley passed away in October--she wanted to work with us to adopt again. We are so thrilled and happy for all of them.
Boston was rescued off the streets of Lubbock and in cooperation with the local animal shelter. Boston's leg has healed up and she has been pre-adopted. She will move to ABQ during April.
The racing school drop-outs-Nola and Tallulah were spoken for and Nola has been adopted. Tallulah's prospective family will decide for sure by April 26. We will keep you posted.
Eileen adopted Ringo. He now lives in Austin and we are so happy. His new momma is no stranger to sighthounds--in her past, she has known and loved over a dozen of them. We were so happy to hear from her and even happier when she asked to adopt from our group. Ringo is Eileen's first Lurcher! Outstanding...
Mark and Anne met Sabrina and promptly took her back home to Odessa! She is the third Greyhound they have adopted from APFUG. Chase--the Greyhound standing with Mark gave his seal of approval. Her new name is Charley!
Doc and Dylan got adopted. They are still shy, but their new family is willing and able to help them find their way. We were so thrilled that they found a home together. They are pictured as they embarked on their journey to Colorado to live with Karla and Phillip. Doc is now known as Tex and Dylan is Slim. Excellent!!
Adoption fees will increase on April 1, 2021
Suzy Q is a racing school drop-out that was recently adopted by Brittany and Joe, from Amarillo! Her pedigree is under her racing name GLS Blossom. She's a treasure and already so loved and happy!
Daniel and Lauren have adopted Lucy-her new name is Juno! Her racing name is GLS Ethelemuggs and she is Suzy Q's sister. Very cool.
Freedom has recovered from his heartworm infection!! He is ready to find a home. Freedom has not been tested for small dog and/or cat safety. His DNA results were-56% Greyhound, 42% Saluki, 2% Whippet.
Huge thanks to all of you that have contributed to help pay for this life-saving treatment!
HIS HEARTWORM TEST IS NEGATIVE--LET'S FIND THIS BOY A FOREVER HOME!!
Liz and Paul were undeterred by a horrific wind storm and drove to Lubbock from Las Cruces to meet all the adoptable dogs. They chose Peyton and took him home on St. Patrick's Day--a very lucky day for everyone!
Hansie Angie didn't have the right temperament to race, so when she became available for adoption-Andy drove to Lubbock from Horseshoe Bay and took her back home. She settled in quickly and is especially fond of the family's cute dog named Goose!
Poppy--a young Lurcher (DNA pending) that had "no prey drive" was relinquished to the group by a hunter. She set an all-time record and was pre-adopted just one week after we put her into the adoption program! Yay for Poppy--happy days ahead.
Kacey got adopted by the Meyer family. She is shown here with Katy and Kathy. Happy days ahead!
The covid-19 pandemic has affected our ability to do home visits and adopt out-of-town. We are managing things on a case-by-case basis. Please continue to stay in touch and send in your applications. I will personally contact each and every inquiry and we will collaborate about the best and safest way to proceed. We are doing "virtual home visits", and this seems to be working very well. Just send in your application and we will figure out a way to expedite and work around the pandemic. We are asking for applicants 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.
*The group will continue to handle any emergency issues related to dogs in peril-even if it requires traveling outside our area. Thank you for understanding. Feel free to contact me by phone or email. Stay safe, healthy, and strong! Linda Dunn, Director in Lubbock
And just like that...Slatex Nola moved off the farm, found a family, got adopted, and moved to Wichita Falls. Hooray for Nola (renamed Midnight) and pictured with Jennifer, Mr. Bubbles, Harley, and Craig. What a splendid family--we are so happy!!
Help us help the Greyhounds and Lurchers!
1. Do your research and decide if a Greyhound is a good fit for you and your family. Review the FAQ's page and check reliable online sites.
3. Applicants will be asked to participate in a home visit or virtual home visit. This is the final step to approve your application. Once that step is completed--the search will begin to find a dog that will fit well with your family and lifestyle.
