Hi, my name is Sampson, and I am new to the area. I am a little over 1 year old and weigh about 90 pounds. I came from a greyhound farm in Kansas and never made it to a racetrack to spend time racing. I am living with a really nice foster family that includes a mom and dad, another greyhound and two cats. My foster mom and dad are teaching me the rules of living in a home for the very first time and they are being very patient with me as I learn. I get along really well with my foster greyhound sister and she has been teaching me some things about living in a home as well. As I said earlier, my foster family has two cats. I’ve never seen a cat before and they seem ok. My foster mom and dad told me I need to leave them alone and I am finding that pretty easy to do. I really like to eat and my foster family serves up some of the best food and I have finished every meal they have fed me.  My foster mom and dad tell me that I am a gentle giant and the biggest greyhound they have ever fostered. For some reason, I have to go to the vet soon, and my foster mom said I will get weighed there so we will know exactly how much I actually do weigh. I have only been living with my foster family for a few days and we are still getting to know each other. Check my bio again soon and I will give you some more updates (and pictures) on how my new life as a retiree is going.

Rastro – 1678 Adoption Pending
  • Kennel Name: Rastro
  • Registered Name: DKC Rastro
  • male
  • DOB: 8/7/10
  • not cat/small animal tolerant
  • AG # 1678

Rastro is a light champaign fawn boy who is simply darling. His whole existence is to provide his family with laughs, love and affection and if he gets some in return, all the better. Rastro is a nut out in the deep snow, running and jumping like a wild child having the time of his life.  He comes in panting with spit on his face almost smiling and then crashes on a dog bed for a bit before going out and doing it all over again.  Rastro is the class clown who makes our household laugh all the time, from the funny way he tilts his head to look at us, to trying to fit into a dog bed not meant for a greyhound. This guy is just so dog-gone lovable and adorable, I can’t imagine any home he wouldn’t fit into, except a home with cats and tiny dogs. Rastro has great house manners and follows every rule to the letter,  If you are looking to add to your laughter quotient and stay amused with his antics in the snow, Rastro might just be the guy your are looking for.

Mia – 1532
  • Kennel Name: Mia
  • female
  • DOB: approx. 10/13/10
  • Not likely cat/small animal tolerant
  • AG # 1532

Hi, my name is Mia!  I am going to be 5 years old on February 24, 2015, and
I would love to have a forever family to celebrate my big day.  My foster
mom says I have soulful eyes and can’t imagine anyone not falling in love
with me (like she has).  She says I have a super sweet personality, I’m
very huggable and kissable, and calls me a velcro dog, whatever that
means.  I don’t care, I just follow her everywhere.  I adapt very quickly
to new situations and routines, and love adults and kids.  My birthday
wishes are for a fenced yard to romp in, and an outgoing doggie playmate.
I do not like cats.  While I could play all day long, I do enjoy chewing on
toys and love to take long leisurely naps and snuggling with my
humans and the Greyhounds in my foster home.  At bedtime, I lie quietly on
my dog bed until everyone rises to start the day.  I respond to basic
commands, and will impress you by sitting for treats and meals before you
even serve them.  I know I will be a wonderful addition to the right
family.  Is it yours?
