Misty

DOB: March 2, 2012 (5yo)
GENDER: Female
COLOR: Blue
WEIGHT: 61#
CAT SAFE: Yes
SMALL-DOG SAFE: Yes
SMALL-CHILD SAFE: Yes

Misty is a breath-taking, blue female with a silky, fluffy coat & adorable floppy ears. Photos don't do her justice! She was a very fast racer at one of the top tracks in the country. A hock injury ended her career a couple years ago. It was repaired and she occasionally limps in cold weather and when outside on hard surfaces. Our vet x-rayed it, she has some arthritis, and he's prescribed her fish oil & joint supplements. This is very inexpensive (less than $5-10/month) and she gobbles it down when set in her dinner. The love this little lady has to give is well-worth a few extra dollars a month!

Misty is a sensitive, laid-back mama (she had 1-2 litters after her racing days).... She loves when people baby-talk to her, and being called "Misty Blue" & "Mama Misty." She enjoys the company of other dogs- including a large pack of greyhounds at home (she is a follower/submissive). She does well with cats, hardwood & tile floors, and is ok with short flights of stairs. She'd be ok as an only dog, and is very quiet and has no issues with taking care of "business" on leash. She likes her crate- it is her security blanket for now. Misty has quickly become a wonderful companion pet- she's ready for her forever home!

WEIGHT: 72#
CAT SAFE: Yes
SMALL-DOG SAFE: Yes

Seminole is a gorgeous fawn boy who just retired from a short racing career- he just wasn't competitive enough. This easy-going guy loves stuffed animals, soft blankets, and snuggling with other dogs & humans. He is a quiet, well-behaved boy who enjoys long walks- he has excellent leash manners. Seminole is a follower, so he'll do best with another dog in the home to show him the ropes. Put in your application today for this wonderful boy!

DOB: December 29, 2015 (2yo)
GENDER: Female
COLOR: Black
WEIGHT: 60#

SMALL-DOG SAFE: Yes

Tinker is one of those girls who has never met a stranger. She is only 2 years old- she's happy & bouncy- and her tail is always wagging. She is confident enough to be an only dog, but is doing ok living with cats and another dog in her foster home. Tinker will be great for someone interested in agility, obedience, therapy work, or bringing her to work with them. Come out and meet her this weekend!

DOB: 2/4/2009 (8.5yo)
GENDER: Female
COLOR: Brindle
WEIGHT: 66#
CAT SAFE: No
SMALL-DOG SAFE: Yes
SMALL-CHILD SAFE: Yes

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?

DOB: 8/23/2014 (3yo)

WEIGHT: 75#
CAT SAFE: Yes
SMALL-DOG SAFE: unk
SMALL-CHILD SAFE: Older

Atticus is a snuggly, brindle boy. He raced for a short time in Wheeling, WV. In his foster home, he's living with several cats, has mastered long flights of stairs, and is now walking calmly on leash. Because of his age & activity level, he is going to need a family with a fenced yard. He will do better as an only dog, with a family who is retired, or works from home. Atticus loves people, treats, stuffed toys & walks. Are you the special family he needs?
