Penske Greyhound Adult - Adoption, Rescue
Hi! My name is Penske, its nice to meet you! So far I think retirement is pretty nice. I love helping my foster mom out around the house. There is so much to learn about and see! I think stuffed animals are nice! I dont need any help playing with them; I just throw them up in the air and play by myself! My foster mom says Im a Velcro dog. I cant help it! I just love my people! I dont have any problem doing my business on leash and I have nice leash manners. I met a small maltese-poodle mixture and we got along just fine, but I would be happiest in a home without cats. Im looking for my forever family. Is it yours? American Greyhound is a not-for-profit adoption group dedicated to finding homes for retired racing greyhounds. All adoption applications are thoroughly screened prior to approval. We request a $225.00 adoption donation, which helps defray the costs of providing spaying or neutering, bringing vaccinations up to date, having teeth cleaned if necessary, parasite check and treatment as indicated (although we cannot guarantee complete freedom from parasites). We provide a choice of safety collar and matching leash with each adoption, and offer discounted adoption donation requests on senior and special needs dogs.When a hound has been designated as "likely cat/small animal tolerant" it means simply that the dog has passed a cat tolerance test administered at the track and may or may not have lived with a cat or small animal while in foster care. Passing this test is by no means a guarantee of future compatibility or behavior.American Greyhound uses a network of volunteer foster homes where the dogs live in a family environment while they wait to be adopted. This helps each dog acclimate to living in a home where they learn about things like house manners, stairs, windows, other pets, etc. New foster families are always welcome and very much needed.Please visit our web siteat www.americangreyhound.org to learn more about the lovable dogs available, when and where they can be seen, and to print out an adoption or fostering application. We have new dogs coming in frequently, so be sure to check back often. And go ahead to visit 1 of our adoption events to learn more about these sweet, gentle, noble creatures. The dogs love the attention and we enjoy talking about them. At some events, we also offer reasonably priced dog related merchandise for sale to help raise revenue for veterinary expenses.
