Meet Boston!

Boston is a 3 year old, light fawn girl. She's a sweet heart with a little bit of an overbite (which I think is too cute!) She had a nice career back in 2009, after which she returned to farm-life, until she came to our group. While at the farm, her owner spent a lot of time working with her. He taught her great kennel and leash manners. She kennels on command and is one of the best leash-walkers I have seen in a while. Most of the time, if she gets ahead of you, she'll look over her shoulder and check where you are at and slow down. It's pretty cool. At home, she's very playful and has, over the past few days, taken all of the toys out of the toy box. She kennels while we are not home, and does just fine with that. She has had perfect house manners, not having a single accident. She sleeps on a dog bed in our room at night and has not tried to get on the couch or in the bed. She gets along great with our 3 greyhounds and did fairly well with the small dogs at the dog park. Placement with small dogs would be on an individual basis. She's quite interested in the cats, so a home without cats would be best. She does fine with children.

Overall, Boston is a fun, affectionate, silly girl who would make a perfect addition to someone's family!

Meet Cindy!

This is Cindy, or as I often call her, Cindy Lou Who, like from Dr. Suess, LOL. She's a wonderful, almost 2 year old red girl. She's currently fostered in my "working home" with 3 other greyhounds and is doing very well. She kennels when we are away, and does just fine going in and chomping down on her peanut butter filled kong. She's very friendly and shows that she would likely do well with children. Not too much bothers her. Initial introductions suggest she will likely be small animal friendly, but her formal cat test will be this week sometime. She hasn't really shown any interest in toys yet. She has not gotten on the couches, but does like to snuggle in the bed. She's a good snuggler! She walks on the leash nicely. No pulling, just the occasional side move when she gets distracted. :) She gets along great with our greyhounds and has been a perfect houseguest. All in all, Cindy is an absolutely wonderful greyhound who would make a great addition to someone's family!

By the way, this picture was taken after being in our home less than 24 hours. She's such a laid back girl!
