A Place for Us Greyhounds
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.
Bianca is a wonderful and loving dog that was rescued along with Sophia in a small rural town northwest of Lubbock. They were in a perilous situation and thanks to a herculean effort and collaboration with the nice folks at Olton's Underdogs--they were captured without any injuries. Bianca's DNA is very interesting. She is tall and lean--but very much Greyhound in her overall appearance. Bianca had a symptomatic case of tick fever and dehydration when we rescued her. She also had several worrisome and "scary looking" mammary tumors that were successfully removed and negative for cancer. While in boarding for two weeks-she had very good leash manners and did not soil her kennel area. This sweet Lurcher needs a home and family to call her own--maybe, just maybe it will be yours?

Freedom is doing well--He is now Heartworm Negative--the treatment eradicated the heartworms--wohoo! He responds well to love and reassurance, is good on the leash, and enjoys car-rides. We have noticed that Freedom is still a bit unsure in new situations--he needs someone to help him become more secure and at ease. We think he has a medium prey drive and would not mind being an only dog-he does seem to enjoy female dogs--males not so much! He is lovely and will make a good companion. Contact us today to set up an appointment to meet Freedom!
Freedom-In good health-finally! Devoted and loving attitude. He has not been tested around small dogs or cats--and since he actively hunted before his rescue--it seems extremely unlikely that he can live with them. Age-4-5 years old and he weighs 70 pounds.
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.
Sophia--This adorable dog will be lots of fun! Sophia is in good health and ready to move in. She has not been tested with small dogs or cats. She weighs 45 pounds.
Bianca--She had us very worried with symptomatic tick fever and several large mammary masses. The tumors were removed and were negative for cancer--she is feeling GREYT and ready to move in to a home. Bianca weighs 50 pounds.
Sophia has been pre-adopted! She and Bianca were rescued together in late-October. Sophia has recovered from her spay and she was also treated for tick fever. She spent some time in one of our volunteer's homes over a weekend. We discovered that she is a happy girl, very clever and can open crate doors that aren't secure, and very agile--she did jump on a couple of counter-tops--Greyhounds are known to be counter-surfers--but this little Lurcher actually caught the wave!
We cannot place her in a home with a doggy door since she seems likely to be able to escape if left outside and unattended. A yard with a secure and tall fence is required. Sophia seems more at ease if she is around other dogs to keep her company. If you are willing to take some extra precautions--with Sophia, it'll be worth the effort. She is a love-bug and will give her new family lots of affection and enjoyment.
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 was nervous in her crate--we aren't sure she will be immediately crate-trainable--but with time she might be okay in one.
