Male Greyhound puppy. Remy is 4-months old
The family that supplied ex-racing Greyhounds and "Racing School Dropouts" to our adoption group has ceased operations. We enjoyed working with the Harlan family and wish them the best.
Yay for Venus! She found a home with a Lurcher named Comfort and Deb-her new Mom is holding Venus's leash. Huge thanks to Maretta for helping with the transport! Happy, happy for this sweet Lurcher and her new family.

Tex says, "I may not be 100% Sight-hound--but I am most definitely 100% Love!!"
Layla wants love and snuggles
Orzo was fostered and then promptly adopted by Tyler and Cecily--less than 2 weeks after he moved in! They live in a small town near Lubbock and took a leap of faith--taking this big boy home with them. He adjusted quickly and is 85 pounds of love and fun! Cecily admitted that she had never met a Greyhound before. Isn't that something? We were more than happy to be sure she met this sweet boy. Outstanding!! Here is the link to Orzo's pedigree.
Adoption fees increased on April 1, 2021
Zoey has been renamed Sadie--she got adopted by her foster family. She is pictured with Sean, Kristin--their two sons-Luke and Jack--and little Pom, Gidget.

Freedom is happy to report that he is negative for heartworms and positive for LOVE!
Sunshine has been
Wow--would you look at that? Jennifer and Todd adopted Austin (he is pictured next to Todd). Winston is next to Jennifer and was adopted in 2020. Both of the Greyhounds were rescued from Tulia, both of them are 6-years old, and even though they aren't related as Jennifer said they are doppelgangers--well, except for Austin's wonky ears!! Austin's new name is Jameson and here is the link to his pedigree.
Dilia adopted Boston on April 20th! Happy days ahead...
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!!
Poppy--a young Lurcher 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.
The covid-19 pandemic has affected our ability to do home visits and adopt out-of-town. 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. 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
Ed and Noreen drove to Lubbock to adopt Willow--a 4-month old Lurcher puppy that was relinquished by her breeder. Happy days ahead for everyone! Hooray...
