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...
This is Frida--she was relinquished by area hunters and is a marvelous Lurcher that is loving, sweet, smart, and lovely! And here's the best part--FRIDA HASBEEN ADOPTED. She is living in Amarillo with the wonderful family that adopted Frederick in March. We are so excited and happy for Frida and the Cavazos family.

We are very sad to let you know that Savannah passed away on November 13, 2018. She had an intestinal obstruction and despite emergency surgery, she didn't survive. Savannah was playful and funny--we think she must have ingested one of the many objects that she collected and would leave strewn around the yard. Curious and lively--she was very puppy-ish and loving.
Helping the Lurchers...

Ellie and Bongo were rescued from the Tulia Animal Shelter. Follow the link to learn more about these sweet Lurchers!
FINALLY, Stella is feeling better and she has had her spay. Basically, she is move-in ready! Since Stella was diagnosed with a heartworm infection-she will always need to take her monthly preventative-on-time and never missing a dose. But, we expect that all of our adopted dogs are getting that consideration. It is so scary to have a dog with this horrible disease. If you are unfamiliar--please follow this link to learn more heartworm infections. Stella had 2 doses of Immiticide, in August. We have not tested Stella for safety with small dogs and/or cats--but we are happy to set that up. Stella was relinquished by a hunter to the adoption group. She actively hunted rabbits and coyotes for several years-she is 6-7 years old.
She is Bella's sister and their DNA results were 75% Greyhound and 25% Saluki.
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?
Cooper was rescued from the Lubbock Animal Shelter and he is at least 6-years old based on his microchip history. He weighs about 48 pounds. Cooper is good on the leash and very lovable. He has not been tested with small dogs or cats--we think he would be okay with either one. His adoption fee is discounted since we are unsure of his age.
His DNA is very interesting--25% Whippet, 25% Saluki, 25% American Staffordshire Terrier, 12.5% Mixed Breed, and 12.5% German Shepherd. Does this mean he's a Whippuki?!
