- Kennel Name: Sweetart
- DOB: approx 3/17/12
- cat/small animal tolerance TBA
- AG # TBA
Sweetart is an adorable little lady who became an American Greyhound foster – in fact, the first foster in the Champaign- Urbana IL area – on March 17th. She was found as a stray in Decatur IL and had been given refuge and a wonderful opportunity to find a new loving home when she arrived at the Macon County Animal Control and Care Center in mid February. Surprisingly, she had not been adopted and American Greyhound was willing to help so the awesome staff there approved her transfer to us. She is quickly winning over the heart of her foster mom and is working hard to win the heart of the resident Grey too (see some of her pics!). In just a couple days, she has already settled in quite well and is starting to learn the ropes. She is a smart gal and will benefit from some obedience work as she overcomes the urge to put her cute little paws on desks and counters and such. She is an outgoing, sweet gal though and I swear she knows how to really look good for the camera! She has accompanied her foster mom to work a couple times already and is adjusting well there too! She has been mingled with the other canines in her foster home; a 2 yr old Greyhound male, a blind and hard of hearing, 18-year old, Aussie/Blue Heeler gal, as well as a 13-year old small Terrier mix male. She has not met any children at this point but has been very cordial while meeting new adults. As always crosses the minds of most foster parents, her foster mom is wondering if she would make a wonderful new addition to the family, possibly – ah the joys of fostering! It has really been an awesome experience already to see how everyone is getting to know each other. We are being cautious with the resident kitty as Sweetart is pretty interested in him but they have met each other and will continue to do so in well-supervised visits. Contact us with any questions or if you think Sweetart would make a wonderful new addition to your family!
- Kennel Name: Mabel
- Registered Name: Thunderous Mabel
- DOB: 5/4/10
- likely cat/small animal tolerant
- AG # 1572
Mabel is a recent graduate of the TGIE Prison program. She will do any of her tricks for you and no treat is even necessary. Mabel’s favorite command is the “shake” command and she will do it for you even when you don’t ask her to. She is a bigger, stockier girl who’s tail never stops wagging, even when she is asleep we still hear thump, thump, thump as she is such a happy girl. Mabel has corns on all four of her feet which cause her to be in pain at times and the vet has shown us a simple way to keep them in check and if you decide Mabel is the girl for you, we will be sure to pass that information onto you. Although Mabel has a white face, she is only 3 years old and is very playful and fun; so don’t judge this book by it’s grey cover. She occasionally has space issues with the other dogs, so she may do best as an only dog or maybe with less than she has at her crazy foster home. She has white “polka dots” running down her back
and legs too which only add to her charm. If you are looking to add to your family fun, (now read this part with a jingle in mind) Maybe its Maybelline.
