We think all of our dogs are wonderful!  Please try not to "fall in love" with a particular dog's picture on our web site. We try very hard to match the RIGHT dog to the RIGHT home. Please trust our judgment in placing a hound with your family!

OUR DOGS WILL BE STAYING IN FOSTER HOMES UNTIL ADOPTED.  ANYONE INTERESTED, PLEASE CONTACT US AT gpa@gpalex.org or 859-266-5912.

What a sweet, sensitive, handsome old man….. O’Malley is looking for a new forever home for the holidays…. He was tattooed and registered a long time ago, but has no races on record. O’Malley just lost his adopter of 7.5years….. He needs a quiet home with canine companion and a fenced yard. He loves car rides, walks, and laying outside for hours in nice weather, and occasionally he likes to get on furniture. He is understandably confused and upset about all the changes that have happened…. But none of it was his fault…. He’s currently in a foster home with cats, stairs, and other dogs and gets along with everybody… Please put in your application today so O’Malley can rest, relax & enjoy his golden years, don’t make him wait any longer…..




 


Lizzie

 


Racing Name: n/a
Pet/Kennel/Call Name: Lizzie
DOB: 1/12/2011 (6.5years)
GENDER: Female
COLOR: Dark Brindle
WEIGHT: 56# (needs to gain 8#)
CAT SAFE: Yes
SMALL-DOG SAFE: Yes
SMALL-CHILD SAFE: Yes

Lizzie is an awesome little firecracker…. Still a lot of puppy left in this girl! Between her gorgeous dark brindle face, and dazzling personality, she’s sure to wow her way into an awesome family very soon. Lizzie would be a great only dog- so she could be the center of attention! She loves walks, car rides, treats and cuddling…. The human bed is her favorite place to lounge- so that is an absolute requirement of her new home. Lizzie will potty while on leash, so she’d do fine in apartment living…. Her background: As a puppy (she was tattooed and from NGA breeding lineage) she broke her leg and was retired very young, but it gives her no trouble- most folks wouldn’t even notice. She was in a home for 6.5years, but was relinquished due to no fault of her own. Although, GPA LEX was not her original placement group (which is no longer in existence), we have been given the privilege of finding her (and O’Malley) a new forever home. We are in deep appreciation of our wonderful foster homes & financial supporters who make this possible…..

SMALL-CHILD SAFE: No children due to sleep startle

Boaty is a dream boat! This gorgeous hunk was a Grade A top racer in Wheeling, WV. He was adopted for a few weeks, and then it was determined that he’d do best with a canine companion, a fenced yard, and a little space when he is on his bed sleeping. He is currently living with cats and another greyhound and is doing great! This guy loves to run in the yard, long walks, treats & squeaky, stuffy toys. Come out and meet him this weekend!

Becky is a beautiful & friendly retired racer and brood mama. She had several litters of pups- her last litter was born in April. Now Becky is ready for some pampering and a couch! She’s had her spay surgery and a much needed dental cleaning, so she is all set for a new home. Becky is housetrained and has mastered going up and down long flights of stairs. She does fine with other dogs, but is confident enough that she could be an only dog in the home. Becky loves kids, long walks, and car rides. She is fine being crated, but doesn’t need it- she is well mannered. Will you help this lovely lady enjoy her golden years & retirement?
