Greyhound Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Toby is an amazing dog! VERY affectionate - loves to cuddle and would be content just being a lap dog. He is obedience trained and can Heel, Sit, Stay, Come and Lay Down on command. Responds to voice and hand signals. Very loyal and protective so he would make someone a wonderful, loving companion and guardian. He doesn't really play fetch or play much, he just likes to cuddle and play guard dog. You couldn't ask for a better dog. He is submissive to people that you tell him are ok but a little dominant with other dogs. Co-exists well with a submissive dog, but wouldn't do well with a dominant dog. He is protective of his food with other ... (Read More)animals (and maybe kids, not sure) but NEVER with adults. Very obedient, loving and loyal. I absolutely love this dog and he has been there for me when I needed him but unfortunately my situation has changed and I just can't keep him anymore. I can't give him the love and attention he deserves and as much as it breaks my heart, I am looking for someone who will love him as much as I do. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-12-18-00191Joey (male)

Greyhound    Age: Young Adult

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

    Joey is a very young, very handsome, large racing greyhound. He is tall and red and not even two years old. According to his racing records, he may be the very worst racing dog we've ever gotten. The good side of that is that he only ran a couple of maiden races and they gave up on him at a very young age. Joey was just working on getting to a home he could call his own! Joey has been to the vet for his shots and been neutered. We got photos of him and have his paperwork in order and we have tested him with the cat. Joey will probably not be able to live with a cat or other small animals. His training may not have made him fast enough for ... (Read More)the track, but he does know how to chase small critters! Joey and all the other male ex-racers, are not house-trained officially; because most have never been in a house. However, they are crate trained and know not to go potty in their crate. It is a simple matter of using a crate (we use 42 inch size crates) to get the boy on your schedule and then transition him out of the crate. Because they've lived most of their lives in a kennel, the crate is a safe-place for them as they learn about the rest of the world. In a couple of weeks they'll transition out of it and you'll be able to fold up the crate. It's a great system and works well for the greyhounds. For more information about our greyhounds or for any other information about adopting a retired racing greyhound, please visit our website: www.friendsofgreyhounds.org. If you have specific questions or are ready to meet Joey, feel free to email us at fogdogs@comcast.net or call the office at 954-578-0072. If we are not around, the recording will give you our cell phones. Friends of Greyhounds has other wonderful greyhounds, too. if Joey isn't the right one for you, maybe another one is! Feel free to call. Friends of Greyhounds adopts in the South Florida area. If you are elsewhere, please consider a greyhound group near to you by visiting www.adopt-a-greyhound.org/agencies Come make a fast friend today. You'll be glad you did. Greyhounds are GREYT! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-12-18-00184Sweetheart (female)

Greyhound    Age: Young Adult

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

    Sweetheart is well named - but of course, if you adopt her, you can change her name. She won't mind. Greyhounds are sweet and gentle dogs who just want to please people and maybe enjoy a cookie and a nap. Sweetheart is two years old and we wanted to get her on the website as quickly as possible because she is sooo pretty. She is a purebred greyhound, a retired racing dog. She is gentle and quiet and looking for a great home. She has had some health problems with an infections and a skin issue but she is doing quite well now that we have her on medication and in a cleaner happier environment. She isn't perfect - - but she has an amazing ... (Read More)potential to be an exceptional greyhound. Long legs, sharp markings, high spirit and bright eyes - a very special girl. (We have just completed cat-tolerance testing in the kennel and i am sorry to say that our Sweetheart will probably not be gentle enough to live with a cat. These dogs have been trained from the beginning to chase a fuzzy object and run really fast to catch it. Some of them can overcome that when the realize the cat is part of the family. But it doesn't look like Sweetheart is one of them. But if you don't have a cat, she's a great dog!) You can set up a time to meet with her in person by contacting Friends of Greyhounds (FoG). Based in Sunrise, FoG adopts in the South Florida area and we can be reached at the office number 954-578-0072 or call our cell phones. The message has the numbers.

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)

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.

lnteresting Greyhound Trivia Low-Cost Florida Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Greyhounds are the fastest dogs in the world. Greyhounds can run over 40 miles per hour. The Greyhound is one of the most ancient dog breeds. Greyhounds are descended from Middle Eastern dogs but have been in England since before 900 A.D. Retired racing Greyhounds are usually put down unless they are adopted!
