A Place for Us Greyhounds
Jolene was recently relinquished by a local person that likely used her to hunt and we think she is about 3-years old. Jolene has been spayed and is ready for a home. We think she will make a GREYT companion. Her prey drive does not seem as high as we felt it was. We are still figuring that out--she is wonderful on the leash and very affectionate. Stay tuned! JOLENE HAS BEEN PRE-ADOPTED--she will move to San Antonio in the near future. Stay tuned for the updates!
Layla--A full-blooded Saluki believed to be about 3-years old. Her health is good--she is ready for adoption. Layla has not been tested with cats or small dogs. She weighs 45 pounds.
Sally--She is a Greyhound/Saluki mix that was found out loose in the rural area near Lubbock. Her age is estimated at 2-years old. We do not believe she is safe to live with small dogs or cats. Her medical care is up-to-date and we would like to find her a home. She is sturdy and weighs over 60 pounds.
Anna-Suzanna--was captured out loose near a small town in the Permian Basin. She is nervous-natured and needs time and patience to mature. We believe she is only about one-year old.
Jolene--HAS BEEN PRE-ADOPTED!
Sally is doing lots better. She was treated for tick fever, worms, and external parasites. She is young and we estimate her age at 2-3 years old. Her spay was done and she is looking for a home with a fenced yard so she can take sunbaths and short runs. Sally has actively hunted and shows evidence of a healthy prey drive. We do not expect she could live safely with small dogs or cats. She weighs 54 pounds.
Sally is very affectionate and outgoing. She prefers people over dogs--she is one of the rare ones that does not need a canine pack--just human love and affection-a stable home and calm environment.
Anna-Suzanna's short life up until a few weeks ago was not good. She was abandoned by a hunter in a remote area of the Permian Basin, and was loose for several days before she was finally captured by concerned volunteers that live in Odessa. Huge thanks to the Darville's for their heroism.
We believe Anna-Suzanna is one-year old and has not been socialized. She has made wonderful progress and is enjoying affection and attention. (She has really bonded with Gillian as you can see in the photo!) Her health is good and she has already had her spay. We continue to see insecurities surface when she faces any new situation or feels threatened. Despite that, the best is yet to come--we are so grateful we were able to help her out of this dangerous and terrible situation. Sadly, the male Greyhound that was with her was never captured--he was more fearful and he met with a tragic end after being hit by a truck. These sweet dogs.

Layla was rescued from Tulia--many thanks to the animal control officer who trapped her. Surprisingly, she is a full-blooded Saluki. We believe she is 3-4 years old. Her health is much improved and she is ready for adoption. Her nature is shy and nervous--probably from being loose for two weeks before getting trapped! We have noticed she is worried that something might fall on her--we expect she was startled when the trap closed--believing the "sky was falling". These sweet dogs! She is smaller--about 50 pounds and good on the leash. We believe that she is too shy to do well as an "only dog".
UPDATE--Layla spent several days at one of our volunteer's home. She did very well since she had Celeste the Wolfhound and Coby--a Deerhound mix to keep her company. She did well on the walks, snuggled in bed with Alessandra, and did not have any accidents in the house. She sat quietly in her crate while on her visit.
Dolly is believed to be 2-years old. We were given that information from the gentleman that relinquished her to the group. Her prey drive was low and she wasn't really interested in chasing bunnies and coyotes. Dolly is very friendly and loving to everyone she meets--she is pictured with Dr. Chattin and Gillian. DOLLY HAS A HOME! WOOHOO!!! SHE MOVED TO FORT WORTH WITH WILLIAM AND JOHANNA ON MOTHER'S DAY
