Adoption Status: Adopted to Hays, 12.14.10

Kohle is one of the rare greyhound puppies that became available because of an accidental breeding of two greyhounds. We received 4 pups from this litter along with their mother Sara (Sarandon). Greyhound puppies are rarely available because most pups are bred for racing and are not available for sale or adoption to the public until after their racing careers are over. Greyhound puppies are much different than the typical laid back calm adult greyhound. Pups are like puppies of other breeds - hyperactive, destructive and need constant supervision. We don't recommend them for the average busy family.

Update after adoption: Kohle has grown up to be a tall, well behaved, young greyhound. He still gets together occasionally to play with his littermates. He also encourages greyhound adoption at Greyhound Crossroads events. His owner does wildlife rehab and he is always good with the squirrels, bunnies and other critters that come in his home.

Kohle passed away suddenly in April of 2016 of Cancer at 6 years old.

Rumble is a beautiful red brindle that raced at 61lbs. Her birthday is October 13th. We also placed her mom Wheelie Cool who was a very sweet girl. Her Sire is Maryville Rumble. Rumble is retired from racing and being a mom now and ready to start her new career holding down a couch cushion at your house. Her trainer said she was a joy to have in his kennel, calm, well behaved, sweet girl. Rumble tested heartworm postive at our vets and had successful heartworm treatment. She has tested negative for heartworms and is ready to be adopted now. She has been fostered with cats and small dogs so should do well in a home with either.

Rumble passed away in May of 2016 of osteosarcoma. She was a wonderful girl that is missed very much by her family.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Burnett Family of Anderson 4/13/13

Annika came in from the Jacksonville Race Track. She was a very successful racer and raced more than 240 races. It is pretty unusual for a racer to continue racing well into their 5th year and she turned 5 on June 2nd. DOB June 5, 2007. Annika was still running OK and making money for her trainer, but they chose to go ahead and retire her so she could get her own family and couch. She is a beautiful, muscular girl that is very short but stocky and raced at 58lbs. She is calm but very friendly and seems to have an excellent personality and is just gorgeous. Her sire is the famous Lonesome Cry and her dam is GS Gladice. Annika was a special order for one of our families that met her at the race track and has been waiting on her to retire. She is very well-behaved as a foster in their home, and is very good with their baby and even guinea pigs. She will be staying!

Her Pedigree

Annika passed away on March 24th of 2016 from Acute Leptospirosis brought into her yard by a wild animal. Both greyhounds in the family were infected with it, but by the time the vet figured out what it was, Annika was already gone. We are hoping her brother Clyde makes a full recovery.

Adoption Status: Adopted by the Calder Family on 7/25/09

Kara is a cute happy little girl that raced at Dairyland and then JCKC in FL briefly. She wasn't a good racer because she had contracted a tick disease and was weak and too thin as a result. We found the tick disease after she was retired and came to us. Her sire is Gable Dodge and her dam is Pride of Iowa. Kara was successfully treated for her tick disease and once she was feeling better showed that she has an exceptionally high prey drive to all other animals large and small. When she was sick she didn't care about chasing anything. Kara is well behaved and tries to please though. Kara has quickly learned house manners and has done well with potty training. She is very devoted to her family. She is pretty outgoing with most people and even more so once she knows you. Kara is so happy and waggy that she injured her tail wagging it and had to have it cropped three times before we finally docked it short enough that she couldn't hit anything with it and re-injure it. Now she has a happily wagging tail stub. It really suits her, though, and couldn't be any cuter. Even though Kara has an exceptional prey drive she has been able to be trained to live with a small dog and cats in her foster home with a lot of work and supervision. She would do better in a home with either no other animals or just other greyhounds. She needs careful introductions to any animal other than a greyhound and is gradually learning that she is not supposed to chase everything. Each new animal is a new experience for her though. She walks great on leash and potties great on leash. She has been very quiet in her crate in her foster home but when she was in a kennel situation she was pretty loud and would excitedly bark whenever a person came close to get their attention. We are unsure whether she would be OK in an apartment.

Her Pedigree

Update on Kara. She was eventually able to be placed with a small lab and they were best friends until she passed away. Kara died much too young at 6 years old of a fast growing cancerous tumor on her skin.

Pat the Hammer just arrived. We are really excited and surprised to get this famous racer as a pet. It is rare that a dog that raced this well is available as a pet without a long career as a stud dog first. This is a great guy that has quite the history of winning races including more than one Stakes Race. Wish he could give us his autograph. Pat is a very outgoing loving guy. He loves to put his head on you and just stare up into your eyes. He will rub his head on you every chance he gets. He is a great guy that was so well behaved when he arrived it was as if he had already lived in a home. He loves children and shows no prey drive toward cats or small dogs so should be able to live with either. This a great guy that is confident without being pushy and is so so sweet! You can tell that he is used to being admired and treated like the elite racer that he is. He just LOVES people but seems to get along with other dogs just fine too. Congratulations to the Pat's foster family! He is going to be staying with them permanently. This guy was a prize that they just couldn't let go.

Annie raced 56 races at Tampa and Derby Lane race tracks. After her race career ended she went back to live on her racing owners farm as a pet with two of her sisters. Due to the failing health of one of her owners they were forced to send some of their former racers into adoption in 2008 and we got Annie and her sisters Katie and Blondie and a few of their other dogs. Annie's Sire is Be Discrete and her dam is M's Ingrid. She was born on November 21 2004. Annie was just a little bit timid at first with new people but loved her family and her friends very much. She had separation anxiety so her family quickly added another girl dog so she had company. Annie loved her sister, they would sleep together and Annie would keep her in line when she got too wild. Annie was always a good dog and almost never did anything wrong. She had such a gentle soul and was so loving. She was very calm except when her family came home, then she would jump and bounce and wag so hard she would injure her tail. She eventually ended up losing her tail because of the injuries she caused wagging it against things so hard. Annie was taken suddenly by a tumor in her abdomen in March of 2016 just a couple of months after her adopted sister Raccoon passed away. She was loved and will be missed by her family and everyone that knew her.

Adoption Status: Congratulations to the Ahl family of Myrtle Beach 2/16/13

Baby is a girl we met at a visit to the track and fell in love with because of her happy personality and her full body wag that she does when meeting new people. Every stranger is a potential new friend for her. They called her Vanna but also called her Baby a lot of the time and she seems to answer even better to that. We have been waiting on her to retire for a for awhile. She was a good racer that raced a long time. Baby was considered a "pet" in her racing kennel and was given extra attention and her trainer calls us regularily to check in on her and see how she is doing. She is a red fawn with a white chest and feet and very pretty. Baby is 60lbs and her date of birth is Aug 1 2008. She passed her cat test so could live in a home with cats. She is a littermate to Betta Recognize that we placed years ago and KnockemoutGeorge that we just placed. Baby's sire is Dodgem By Design and her dam is Sky Robber. We have adopted out lots of Dodgem By Design pups that are her half sibs and we expect her to be a wonderful pet like they have been.

Baby crates well and keeps her crate totally clean. She did make some noise in her crate at first but has quieted down a lot now. We aren't sure if she would be quiet enough to live in an apartment or townhouse though. She will need a home with a fenced yard because she hasn't gone potty on leash very often and prefers to trot around on her own looking for the perfect place. Part of the problem with going potty on leash is that she will just stand next to you gazing up at you with love waiting for petting rather than sniffing around. She is THAT sweet and loving! This gal has a LOT of personality and seems like she will be a fun, devoted, playful pet. She has done great with her potty training and house rules and seems like she will be an easy, well behaved girl. She has been great with the children she has met at our events and goes right up to them with her tail wagging. She actually goes up to everyone happily wanting attention. A very outgoing little girl! So SWEET!

Hi my name is Ty. I am available for adoption because of the economy. I was a very good pet and my family wanted to keep me but were forced to put me up for adoption because of a job loss and having no place to move with a dog. I am already used to living in a home and I have great house manners. I have lived with children before and really love them. Noisy crying babies freak me out a little though so I would prefer to live with kids that are toddler age or older. I used to attend meet and greets to promote greyhound adoption so am a greyhound ambassador. I am very friendly and outgoing and was great at my job. I love to go for walks and will potty on leash so will be fine without a fenced yard. I lived in an apartment with my previous family so would be quiet enough for apartment living. I am looking for a family that wants a mature lady with manners to share their life with. I am a playful, fun girl that still loves to play and gets along well with other dogs of all kinds. Because of my age I have been selected for a reduced adoption fee of $200! Link to her pedigree

Wingsy is nearly all white except for a tiny patch over one eye and spots on both ears. She was a very valuable, high dollar, greyhound with great breeding from a very successful racing litter. She was retired young to produce more pups like her and sold at auction for $22,000. She had a litter of 7 pups in 2006 but had some problems having another litter this year so will not be able to have any more pups. She was retired from the brood farm as soon as her one surviving pup was old enough to leave his mom. Now she is ready to be a pet. She is still a young girl at only 4 years old. Wingsy is friendly, sweet, happy and like many dogs that have raised pups seems to be wise beyond her years. She seems to get along with other dogs, male and female of all sizes but like most former mama dogs is likely to to try to keep other dogs in her home in line. She potties well on leash and is quiet in her crate so may be OK in an apartment or townhouse. She loves to go for rides and travels well. She is going to make a great pet.

Wingsy was adopted and renamed Wendy. When her last pup retired he went to live at her house. She lived a long life and passed away at 12.5 years old due to Lymphoma.

Samson is an older guy that has been in a home since 2009. He is a huge guy that towers over most other greyhounds and weighs close to 100lbs but could stand to lose a few lbs. We don't have a lot of information about his past or his racing name. He will celebrate his 9th birthday in May though. Samson was returned with his 10-year-old housemate Delilah to the Birmingham Race Track Adoption Kennel. She is still available in Birmingham and arrangements could be made to bring her here too if a family were interested in adopting both together. They were returned due to a family situation and not because of a problem with the dogs. Samson did not pass his cat test but was good with the small dogs in his foster home. He is a calm, sweet, gentle giant. Because he is an older guy he qualifies for our reduced adoption fee of $200. Samson arrived with a slight limp that got worse in the next two weeks. He was diagnosed with terminal bone cancer. His foster mom decided to just adopt him and love him for the time he has left.

Pixie is a tiny older girl that raced at 56lbs and was a very thin 52lbs when she arrived. She is one of the oldest dogs we have ever taken in and will turn 13 on August 11th. Pixie's family originally adopted her from another group out of the area. They are moving now and are unable to take her with them. She was very fragile and had a constant tremor that made her whole body shake when she was on her feet. Pixie also has a bad limp. We had it x-rayed and it appears to be the result of arthritis in an old injury. Our vet noticed that she was being given 4 times the pain medication she should have been getting. That big of a dose was causing a lot of the trembling and by putting her back on the correct dose a lot of her shaking has gone away and she is able to run and play a little now and is much less fragile in just a couple of weeks. She did have a bad fall down some stairs a few years ago and that was when she started the medication and probably why she limps. Pixie's blood work looked good for a girl her age and she even has good teeth. She is on inexpensive thyroid medication and her levels are perfect. As of her last vet check she has gained 3 lbs and looks much better than when she arrived. Our vet is very pleased with her progress and has cleared her for adoption. Pixie is a very calm, laid back, girl, that seems friendly and good natured. She lets complete strangers lift her in and out of vehicles and just stood there when the vet drew blood without yelping or flinching. She has lived with cats and small dogs and is good with them. Back in her day Pixie was a star racer and won top A level races and even competed in special stakes races. She raced most of her career at Daytona Beach but also raced a few races in Wichita. Pixie has 130 races to her credit. She was retired to be a brood mom and had one litter of 7 puppies in April of 2006 before becoming a pet. Her sire is Quiet Traveler and her dam is Shoot Fortheloot. This is a super sweet girl that is looking for a family that will love her for the rest of her life. Because Pixie is a senior she qualifies for a reduced adoption fee and some generous donors have offered to help with that.

Poser is curious about cats and small dogs but responds well to correction and did quickly lose interest, so we think he would be able to live with them with supervision at first. He did great with the kids he met at a home show too.

Durango was found wandering loose and was brought to the Birmingham Race Track's adoption kennel. It took them awhile to figure out who he was and where he came from because his identifying ear tattoos were badly faded. He was identified eventually as EZ Durango. He had raced 25 races starting at Seabrook then moving to Birmingham AL. He retired from there and was adopted in 2004. His mom had been deployed and had left him with relatives. He had run away from the relatives house and had been missing for a year and a half. Another family found him, took him in and kept him until his most recent escape. His original owner was contacted and is still deployed in another country. Her relatives are unwilling to take him back. Durango just turned 13 on Nov 5th. His sire is Oneco Wiseman and his dam is Good Storm. He raced at 68lbs but is on the thin side now so is a smaller guy. Durango came in with a small tumor that needed to be removed and was under weight but other than that the vet said he was remarkably healthy for a guy his age. He loves children and passed his cat and small dog tests there. The really good news is that he has a wonderful home to go to already as soon as he arrived on Nov 14th.

Raven is a tiny girl that raced at 55lbs. She is a mostly white girl with just a few black spots and some ticking (freckles).

Her sire is Premier Fantasy and her dam is JD She Rappin. Raven turned 2 on August 27th. According to the people at the track that know her Raven is pretty social and goes up to some people but not everyone so she can be just a little timid at first. She is a very calm girl. Raven has been friendly so far and very social with us following us around. Seems like she will be a very nice calm girl. She did fine with the small dog she met and was very calm with him.

Only a few days after being adopted, Raven got out of her family's fenced backyard. She was hit by a car within seconds of her escape and died instantly. She was loved and will be missed.

Bandita just arrived from the Orange Park race track. She broke her hock on April 24th in a race and was vetted and splinted there. The leg seems to be healing well but still needs to be splinted a bit longer so Bandita won't be available until her splint is off. She is expected to make a good recovery. She has 53 races listed at Southland in Arkansas and at Orange Park in Florida. Bandita's sire is Lewis And Wax and her dam is Fuzzys Rushmore. She raced at 62lbs and won't turn 4 until October 29th. Bandita did not pass her cat test so needs a home without cats. She did pass her small dog test and likes kids so should be fine to live with either. We think Bandita is the cutest thing with the spots on her eyes that almost look like big eyebrows. This is a sweet happy girl!

She didn't pass her cat test so needs a home with no cats. She has been a little loud in her crate at first in her foster home so may not be the best dog for apartment living. This is a sweet cute girl.

Rambo is a white and red male that has lived with a family for some time. He is a very sweet, friendly 6 year old boy. He has a thick coat from living outside. He is very good with cats paying no attention to the cats in his foster home and even ignored a bird that was in a vehicle he was transported in. He should be fine to live in homes with cats, small dogs, and even birds. Although he has lived outside for awhile, he is used to being in a home and settled happily on a dog bed or couch. He even knows how to use a doggy door. Rambo is a smaller guy weighing only 69lbs. He travels well and doesn't seem to stress out over anything. Just an easy going guy that likes everyone and would be a good first or 4th greyhound. Rambo ended up being heartworm positive so is undergoing treatment.

Because she was such an amazing racer she had 4 litters of pups before she officially retired. She was the mother of one of our adopter's pups and she tracked her down and asked if she could foster her. She is a sweet, calm girl whose favorite thing is napping. After raising 20 pups she knows the value of a nap. Perogie was born on March 7th of 2005 and raced at 63lbs. She is being fostered with small dogs and is fine with them.

Messy is a red fawn, puppy girl that came to us directly from the farm. She weighs about 55lbs. Her sire is the very famous Kiowa Sweet Trey and her dam is CTW Folklore. She celebrated her first birthday on 4-1-13. Messy is not going to be trained to race because she had a broken upper back leg that effects her stride a bit. We had it X-rayed and it is totally healed and she loves to run and play and the injury doesn't seem to cause her any pain and doesn't slow her down much. Messy is very calm and well behaved for a greyhound puppy. She is sweet, friendly and loving. Her foster home recently took her on a beach vacation with them and she was very good at the hotel and enjoyed traveling and interacting with all the strangers she met. Nothing seems to phase her or get her stressed out. She takes everything in stride. She loves hugs and kisses and is crate trained. She has some puppy energy but is not bad and she has become one of their favorite fosters. She loves to snuggle on the couch with her foster family and the other dogs. Getting a greyhound this young is a rare opportunity. Messy did pass her cat and small dog test and has been good with the children she has met so she should be a great family dog.

Messy crossed the bridge much too soon as a very young girl.

We adopted Guy to a family back in 2008. We just were contacted by a vet that had a greyhound abandoned there. When we checked the ear tattoos we discovered it was Guy. So Guy is available again at 7 years old. His DOB is Jan 15th of 2006. He has been in an adoptive home since 2008. He is good with cats and small dogs and lived in a home with kids and was wonderful with them. Guy has a very unusual roman nose that makes him very special and cute. His sire is TNT Star Wars and his dam is Coldwater Beth. Guy has come into foster care and is very well behaved. He sleeps in bed with his foster mom and is very loving. He gets along great with a pit bull puppy in his foster home and pays no attention to the cats that live there. He is a very good boy that settled in like he had always been there and seems very happy and well adjusted. Guy does need a fenced yard because he doesn't potty well on leash. He does get nervous in thunderstorms.

Guy began limping while in foster care and sadly was diagnosed with osteosarcoma (bone cancer). There is no cure only pain management. One of the vet techs that cared for him decided to adopt him. Guy survived more than a year before losing his battle with cancer.

Amour is a beautiful, tiny white girl with black spots. She raced at only 54lbs so is very tiny. Her sire is Fuzzys Cannon and her dam is Ultimate Deva. Her birthday is Dec 4th. She has 14 races to her credit and started our racing at Palm Beach then moved to Sanford Orlando but never won a race. She is a very silly girl that loves to run in circles in the yard while barking happily. She doesn't care if anyone joins her and often is the only one running. She does this every turnout and seems like a higher energy gal that will need a fence yard to play in since she likes to run every time she goes outside. She got along well with the other girls at the track. She passed her cat test at the track so should be able to live with cats and small dogs. She is in a foster home with small dogs and has been fine with them. She seems like a very outgoing, happy girl. Amour is doing great in her foster home and is very well behaved and sweet. What a pretty girl!!

Amour passed away suddenly due to kidney failure.

Her sire is Lauren Tide and her dam is Oneco Persnickty. She has been in an adoptive home for 5 years since she retired and was adopted out through another adoption group that has given us permission to help rehome her. Her family is having to give her up because of moving into a senior living center. They are heartbroken about having to give her up. Shadow has good house manners and has been living with small white dogs and larger dogs and is good with all of them. She needs to be tested with cats. Shadow loves to go for rides in the car and always wants to go and rides nicely once she gets in but is a little afraid to jump into the car. When she first arrived at her adoptive home years ago she was very very shy and would run from people. Now she is very loving towards her family. She settled right into foster care though without any problem. She has even been out to a meet and greet at PetSmart. While she didn't actually go up to all the new people there she didn't shy away either and enjoyed the attention. Shadow has never tried to get up on the furniture in her home. She is a pretty black girl with white feet and chest and a white face.

Declan just arrived from Derby Lane in Florida. He was a star racer but was on a break from racing due to a broken toe. When the first toe healed up he broke another toe so they just decided to retire him rather than risk any more toes. Declan's birthday is October 15th, 2010. His sire is the famous Oshkosh Slammer so he is a half brother to a bunch of dogs we have adopted out. His dam is Dixie Stampede. Declan is an extra large guy at 86lbs. We have some of the biggest boys we have ever adopted out available right now. If you like big, friendly, playful boys Declan could be your guy. On the trip up from the track he found a glove that he was tossing around in the back of the van. Definitely a guy that isn't stressed by being in a vehicle or around strangers. He likes everyone he meets and doesn't seem to get worried or stressed by anything. He still needs to be tested with cats but has been very good with the small dogs he has met and hasn't even shown interest in chasing squirrels in the yard so we think he will probably be cat safe as well. Declan crates quietly and likes to sleep in his crate so might be quiet enough for apartment living. He is a total love bug that will stand patiently and wait to be petted and will follow you around. He does well with the other male dogs in his foster home and has just settled in like he has always been there. He only had one accident in the house when potty training. He doesn't counter surf and is very well behaved. If he does anything wrong an "UH UH" is all it takes to make him stop. Because of his two broken toes his racing trainer doesn't think he would be a good performance dog prospect for agility or lure coursing. He is fine to run and play with other dogs, hike, go for walks or jogs with his owner though. Those toes shouldn't bother him as a pet.

He celebrated his 2nd birthday on February 14th. Shane passed his cat and small dog test at the track so should be able to live with either. Shane walks and potties well on leash so might be a good dog for apartment living. He is also quiet in his crate but has proven to be a bit of a houdini and has escaped his crate several times so needs a plastic vari kennel that is escape proof. This is a sweet loving guy that is good with other dogs, kids and loves everyone he meets. His foster home says that he is very well behaved and is the easiest foster he has had yet.

Shane was adopted and renamed Morgan. He lived a happy but too short life. He passed away in August of 2016 of bone cancer at only 5 years old.

Blade is an extra large male that raced at 87lbs and weighed in at 99lbs at the vets when he was returned to us. We usually try to keep greyhounds within 5lbs of their racing weight so he has been on a diet but is an extra large greyhound. Blade's sire is the famous Flying Hydrogen who is owned by one of our volunteers. His dam is Slatex Alice. Blade retired from the Sanford Orlando Race Track in Nov of 2012 and raced before that at Gulf and Bluffs Run tracks so is a bit of a traveler. He has 49 races listed but looks like he was just too big to be a successful racer because it doesn't look like he won even one race. He did place in some though. Blade has been living in a home since he retired and has very good house manners. He does have a very high prey drive so needs a home without cats and small dogs. He just mistakes small furry critters for bunnies and wants to chase them. Blade seems like a calm, confident guy that adapts well to where ever he is. He is an easy going, calm guy and is very good on leash in spite of his extra large size. He potties on leash and is quiet in his crate so may do well as an apartment dog. Although we have seen no sign of it, we were told that he could be protective of his space when laying down. Even though he has lived with kids before, we would prefer not to place him with young kids because of that. We were also told that he could be protective of his family and would bark at strangers. That behavior is very rare for greyhounds and we have not seen any of it- just the opposite. All we have seen is a friendly, happy, sweet dog that loves everyone he meets and seeks out attention from complete strangers and happily allowed the vet and her staff to handle him. If you want a big guy that already is used to living in a home and will be very loving Blade is your guy.

Brooker raced years ago in Orlando. His sire is Craigie Booker and his dam is Windy Wendy. Brooker is a small gorgeous boy.  He has been in a home for years and was surrendered to us because he had some grumpiness over his space that concerned his owners that were new parents. They didn't think he would be good with a toddler. He has been in foster care and so far we have not seen any grumpiness over space whatsoever even though we have bothered him when laying down and sleeping. Because of his owners saying he had some space issues in the past we put him down as needing a home with no small kids.  He has been nothing but calm, sweet and well behaved since he arrived though. Brooker is very friendly and waggy so much so that he injured his tail while wagging and had to have it removed. He is a leaner that will put his head in your lap for love and just stand there as long as you are willing to pet him. Brooker is very cat friendly showing no interest in them even when they are running around outside. He crates well and seems to be a great guy that is already home acclimated. He crates well and quietly so might be a good choice for a townhome or apartment. He loves to play with toys and is a very young 7. With his great looks and sweet personality we think he will find a home quickly.

Mo and his brother Larry originally came to us from a farm in Wheeling WV. They never went to the race track or actually raced. Their sire is Iceman Brutus and their dam is WJS Raina Jem. The brothers will turn 4 on September 19th. Mo is the darker of the two brothers and is the more laid back of the two boys. He is very friendly and good on leash. Mo never had one potty accident in his foster home and is very well behaved and never gets into trouble. He is a very tiny little guy at just 62 lbs. Mo loves to snuggle and is very loving. Mo loves playing but does have some arthritis in his knees starting that prevented him from racing. We have him on supplements for his knees. Mo passed his initial cat test but has wanted to play too rough with cats in one home. Not trying to kill them, just playing but we think he would do better in a home without cats or maybe in a home with a really mean cat that would set him straight from the beginning about appropriate play. Mo and his brother Larry have been in an adoptive home for a year and were returned to us. They were kept in an outbuilding all night instead of staying in the house with their family and were barking.

Ellie May is a beautiful girl that just turned 9 on June 10th. She has been checked out by our vet and is healthy. Ellie May is very sweet and gets along well with everyone and is very well behaved.  Ellie May has lived for years in an adoptive home as an only dog and has great house manners. Her adoptive mom has been forced to give her up because of severe health problems that prevent her from caring for a dog. Her adoptive mom was hoping she would be able to recover and keep Ellie May but after having her boarded for 6 months made the difficult decision to let her be rehomed. Ellie May only has one behavior problem,  she doesn't like to be bothered by other dogs when she is eating and sometimes growls at them to get them to back off. Our foster home simply feeds her in her crate and that prevents all problems. With any dog that shows even minor possessive behaviors like this (even though it is normally with other dogs and not people) we won't place the dog in a home with smaller children. That is the only reason that she has that restriction, she does like children and has been good with the ones she has met. She is living with small and large dogs in foster care and is fine with them. She loves to play and tries to get the other dogs to run and play with her. She doesn't act like an older gal at all and seems to be the life of any party. She has figured out the doggy doors in her foster home so is a bright girl and proves that older dogs can learn new tricks. Ellie May is a very sweet, happy girl that is very friendly and loving. She loves dog beds and seemed to settle in easily and didn't even skip a meal. This is a great girl that would be happy as an only dog or one of several. She passed her cat test so could live in a home with cats. Her sire is DC's Wooster and her dam is Greys Gold Coast. Because she is a senior Ellie May qualifies for a reduced adoption fee of $200. Another contribution has been made toward her adoption fee thanks to the generosity of CrazyCollars.com.
