Rescue Me ID: 15-08-25-00511Cowboy (male)

Greyhound Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    My name is Cowboy and I am a 1 and 1/2 yr. old, 58 pound love bug. I love to be cuddled and will lavish you with big, sloppy kisses. I am a heartworm negative, neutered male who is fully vaccinated and current on heartworm and flea preventions. I don't mind being in my crate and I am not destructive; although I love to chomp on tennis balls. I'm a fast learner and I am eager to please my human. I love to be praised and petted. I totally enjoy my walks and my exuberance shows when you pick up the leash and I realize I'm going for a walk. I currently live with two other dogs and two cats. Running in the yard is one of my favorite pastimes. I ... (Read More)do have an inquisitive nature; therefore, my yard will need a 6 foot fence. I require an experienced owner; someone who will commit to continuing my training. I have a tendency to be over exuberant at times; therefore, a home with older children would be a better fit for me. ******* ******* For more information on Cowboy, please email: InquiryForNewHorizonDogRescue@gmail.com, including your name and phone number. ******* ******* Young, Male, Large (Less)

Animal ID: 51964Charlie (male)

Greyhound    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Basic Information: Kennel Name: Charlie, DOB: 10/5/09, Male, 5 Years Old, Color: Brindle, Racing Weight: 70 lbs. Friends of Greyhounds tries very hard to show our dogs in the best light to find them a home but we are also very honest about our dogs. Charlie has been in two homes but please don't write him off because of that. In his racing career, Charlie had 93 races and made some money for his owners. His racing name was Chase the Storm but he goes by Charlie and he has given you permission to change his name if you give him a permanent home. He is definitely not small animal tolerant, which includes cats, but loves humans and older ... (Read More)children. But Charlie likes to run and exercise. His last home was wonderful for a while until they couldn't go to the dog park anymore. They were a sweet and caring and loving family and for five months Charlie went to the fenced dog park almost every day and ran like the wind. Then there were problems with hookworm that mom thought was coming from the park so they stopped going. Over a period of four months, Charlie's personality changed, he became aggressive and Charlie couldn't live there any more. We don't know for sure but we think that Charlie really, really needed to run. Greyhounds are born and bred to be runners. Most greys when running professionally, run races every third or fourth day and practice in between. If that suddenly stops, it's hard on them. Muscles that are used to stretching are left to atrophy and that racing serotonin stops coursing through their veins. Plus, these are social animals and they love seeing and playing with others. Since he has been back here at the kennel, he has been a good boy, his normal self. Charlie is a fairly large, strong dog, healthy and happy but he will be happier in a home with a good sized yard. He loves to go for rides and is very good on a leash. Charlie gets a lot of comments on his beautiful brindle markings and is somewhat of a traffic stopper, so be prepared to play second fiddle to him when you are out and about. Don't worry, he knows he's handsome, but he's not conceited in the least. While some people may be skeptical about returns, please consider that a return has an advantage over the just off the track dogs. They have been in a home, so they have experience, and most of the kinks have been worked out for things like house training and leash walking. The transition from retired racer to house pet is almost seamless. There are plenty of people who like the challenge, but there are plenty of us who like to bring them in and just plug them into our system and go. If you are an experienced greyhound owner or a two dog person, please come check out Charlie. He needs a chance. Come check out our wonderful greyhounds at the FOG kennel in Sunrise. If you are in the Broward area it's entirely possible that they may even bring your choice over for a visit at your house. In any case, Charlie is a handsome, personable greyhound and this could be a life changing event for both of you. For more information about how to adopt a retired racing greyhound, please visit our website: www.friendsofgreyhounds.org or email Michelle at fogdogs@comcast.net. Cat non-tolerant This dog has tested as not tolerant of cats and will probably not be able to live with cats. Small dogs are a different story and you are welcome to bring your dog with you to help choose your new dog. Many dogs who are not tolerant of cats will still be fine with small dogs. They know the difference! (Less)

Animal ID: 61540Lee (male)

Greyhound    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Lee is sweet brindle boy who is getting lost in brindle boy crowd in the kennel. Brindle is the most common greyhound color and more males race than females so I guess having a lot of brindle boys in the adoption kennel is just par for the course. Lee''s coat is not the usual black and fawn stripes or splotches. His coat is more of a mink look. His brindle is muted and subtle like a slightly out of focus photograph. It''s really quite beautiful and we don''t see that look very often. Lee has tested cat tolerant. Please know that we are very careful about our cat tests and try hard to get the right answers but how a new dog ... (Read More)reacts with the cat at your house may be different so proceed with caution in the beginning for the sake of the cat. That said, we have four greyhounds and three cats living together without a problem in our home. It can be done. And should any FoG dog need to come back to the kennel, whether because of cat issues or any other reason, we are here to welcome them back and start looking for a new, more appropriate, home for them. And we look for a greyhound that is a better fit for your home and for you! Greyhounds make wonderful pets. If you are in the South Florida area, please consider adopting one of our sweet, loving and clean dogs. For more information about greyhounds in general and about adopting from Friends of Greyhounds, please visit our website: www.friendsofgreyhounds.org or join our conversation on Facebook. Our headquarters is located in Sunrise, Florida but we will deliver a dog just about anywhere in South Florida if it means a good home for him or her. These sweet creatures deserve it!

Rescue Me ID: 15-03-31-00084Kingsley (male)

Greyhound    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Basic Info: Kennel Name: Kingsley, Color: Red Brindle, DOB: 07/18/13 Kingsley is almost two years young, and a handsome red brindle boy. He comes from a wonderful pedigree of greyhound racers but this little boy is a very, very scardy cat. We named him Kingsley hoping it will instill him with self confidence and strength. Hasn't seemed to have worked so far. He is scared enough that he would not have any problem living with a cat. One look from the cat and he will turn and run. A hiss and he won't be seen all day. So living with a cat should not pose a problem for the cat. I think he would adjust to a peaceful coexistence in time. He ... (Read More)needs a quiet household and a loving parent or two to patiently help him develop confidence in himself and trust in others. He is very mild mannered and sweet and quite small for a racing greyhound. As shy as he is, I can't believe he even made it to the track. He has great potential as a clinging, snuggle bunny. Update on Kingsley - Well, Kingsley wasn't getting any better by just being in the kennel so we brought him into the house and it helped him. So one of our very experienced foster parents has made room for Kingsley. It has made a huge difference in him. He does well with the other dogs, has learned the dog door and has become part of the family. He has adapted well. It wasn't an easy transition but he managed to do it. He even feels safe enough to nap outside of his crate. Greyhounds find a crate to be their safety zone and Greyhounds need a lot of sleep! He has done great with the cats and the other greys. In time, I think he could be a reasonably social boy and he definitely has a lot of love to give but he doesn't know how yet. He had an issue with inappropriate urination while in his kennel but we found that pretty much went away when he came into the house. It may have been influenced by the other dogs in the kennel as they sometimes get very excited about nothing and that may have been scary for Kingsley. He is one of 5 dogs in his foster home now (2 cats, too) and he's doing a little better every day. We've gotten him started on the way to normalcy but we really need someone to come adopt him so he can learn to relax and feel secure in a place where he is loved and living out his life. He has the potential to be a well trained house dog but with his shyness, he absolutely needs his own private fenced yard. Leash walks in public would probably not be possible for some time. If you have questions about Kingsley and are in the South Florida adoption area, feel free to email me (fogdogs@comcast.net) if you would like to meet Kingsley. His foster home is in Plantation. For more information about adoption and events, please visit our website: www.friendsofgreyhounds.org. Come make a fast friend today. You'll be glad you did. Cat Safe This dog has tested as cat safe, and should have no problems living with cats in the house as well.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Greyhound in Florida
    Greyhound Dogs can make good pets in Florida if they match your IifestyIe. The Greyhound is a reserved, elegant, intelligent breed. Greyhounds are gentle, sweet companions that can be a joy to own. Greyhounds are excellent choices for adoption as adults; former racers are already crate trained and easy to housebreak, and this dog adapts well to new owners. Greyhounds have a strong chasing instinct and should not typically be trusted with non-canine animals. Greyhounds do well with older, considerate children. They do not like to be teased. A Greyhound can live in an apartment and may even behave lazily indoors, but does need daily exercise. Greyhounds are sensitive to extreme cold and should wear a coat outside in the winter.
