Neo - adopted whippet puppy

MOSLEY, Whippet, Male
Mosely is a 10 year old purebred male
WHIPPET. My mom can no longer care for me so I am looking for a home. I am a breed of dog that has a long life span and generally stays active for most of it.
I have been a lure coursing dog and I have a title. I am not an outside dog but I have been crate trained. I do enjoy chewing on my toys, and I don't mind sharing my life with another whippet, just not my food bowl. Get me outta here, please, everyone is nice to me here, but I want a real home. I promise to love you in return.

Mosely has a wonderful new home.


SHADOW, Afghan Mix, Male
Shadow is a 3 year old male AFGHAN HOUND mix. Shadow likes people a lot and is a little rough to play with a smaller dog. He would be fine with another dog his size, preferably a female. Shadow will need a secure yard and a family with the time to give him attention and training. He's a nice dog, VERY big, and most handsome! Shadow has a great new home.


SHADOW, Whippet, Female
Shadow is a young adult female Whippet very sweet, she came from a shelter in the high desert, and has spent a lot of time outside. This is not what we want for this beautiful girl. Her coat is a little sunburned but will turn glossy and black when she has had some TLC and proper nutrition.
She is responsive to people, gentle, and will become a lovely family pet. Shadow has a great new home!


Sarasota, Greyhound, Male
Sarsaota is a 16 mo old female purebred
red brindle GREYHOUND. He is shy but very loving. She has been nowhere and done nothing, she is a blank slate, and very intelligent and sensitive. Everything you show him will be her first time. He is small for a Greyhound and fully grown. Every day she is here, she gets better. He is a new arriva (5/07) and simply lovely to look at. Saraota has a great new home.


He is a puppy, and Greyhounds pups are very appealing. At this age he resembles a little colt or a baby deer.  Please be sure you have the time to spend with this youngster.  He needs training, safe yard, kids would be a plus as would another large breed dog.
Greyhounds do not need more exercise than other dogs. He literally melts in your arms wen you hold him, he goes "boneless".  VERY Sweet, he loves attention. This baby should grown up to be a very affectionate and intelligent addition to any family.  Properly raised, this is a breed that is clean, quiet and very devoted to their people. This is NOT an outside only breed of dog.  They need to be protected from both the heat and the cold. Wizard now has a wonderful new family.

She's is as nice and gentle as she is beautiful. Owned by an older couple and one of them has recently passed, she needs to be in an adult home where she can be cherished. She is quiet, crate trained, housetrained, has excellent manners, and has never lived with young children. She has never been around cats either, but she gets along very well with dogs, and of course, people. This is a beautiful girl, if you like Whippets, she will melt your she did her new family's!

He was found wandering the strip in Las Vegas and has a broken leg that was left untreated and has now healed. He functions just fine now, he has one front leg slightly crooked, however. Mr. Dave was adopted to a couple in the music industry who adore him as do their friends. they have written a song about him which they are thining of submitting to American Humane for them to possibly use.

Mr Dave

9 mo old male
Little Tux has spent his whole life in a kennel, he came to us from a puppy mill in Oklahoma. He has never been anywhere or done anything but he likes other dogs, is pleasant, and needs some TLC. He is very tiny.. Tux approaches people,but is not sure what to do next. He seems to enjoy being held and is not overly nervous. He is only about 6 lbs. This is a very little guy. NOT appropriate for a home with large dogs and young children. Precious....He deserves to be treated as such.

Tux and his new Mom- from England!

Sarajane, Whippet, Female
Crate-trained,house trained, doggie door trained She loves to ride in cars and walks well on a leash She is nicely mannered, not a barker and gets along with most dogs, especially boys, She is spayed and needs a secure yard and a family who wants a dog to love and in return she will do the same.
Very sweet, somewhat submissive. Sara has a great new home.


NINA, Portuguese Podengo Poqueno
(Google: Podengo, they are a sight hound) Nina is a female about 10 months old. She is a riot! She loves to play, pester people, chase other dogs, and she adores GREYHOUNDS! They are her dog of choice to run, wrestle and hang around with. At the kennle, she slips between the gate and goes in out of the Greyhound run. She even bosses them around. She is a cheeky young thing and full of life.

When we got her from the Modesto shelter we were alarmed to find that she was born without hip sockets, so we thought we would just let her stay here, doing what she does as long as she wanted to. Our veterinary orthopedic surgeon took a look at her, watched her romping with the other hounds and said "place her, she is fine, her body has figured out how to make it all work."

Nina is now living the good life in Washington state!

Special Needs Whippet
LEVIN, Whippet, Male

Former name Whippet Rescue # 11.
Rescued, 6 years ago, along with about 20 other Whippets from a warehouse puppy mill in central California. These dogs were kept in deplorable conditions and bred regardless of any faults or health conditions. Levin has a genetic disorder called Macular Degeneration. He is blind. It has been gradual, and he can still see some light. He has been taught to walk, the language of humans, and gets along with other dogs.

An update from his new owner...

I am watching him sleep and he is making little noises.  I guess he is dreaming.  He has such minimal needs.  The most important things to him are consistency and routine (and greenies!).  Once he learned the routine around here, he stopped being nervous, stopped peeing when we left him alone, and started being a happy dog.  I love how he seems to enjoy being next to Koda.  He often tried to cuddle with her.  And, even though she is not a big cuddler, she let's him snuggle with her (for a little while).  It is quite cute. 

Levin does not care for strangers, which really makes us feel blessed that he came with us so readily.  I feel as though he knew we were his friend from the start.  He was magnificent in Oregon at the National.  He is so adaptable.  He learned the lay of the hotel room quickly and soon gathered quite a following of Levin fans!!  Koda's co-breeder was completely smitten. He routinely called people over to meet Levin.  I wish Levin had been with me when I met former President Clinton in the lobby of our hotel!  Levin would have impressed the heck out of him. 

I love this dog.  Thank you for trusting us with him.  I know he occupies a special place in your heart.  

See Levin's original posting...


RIVERDANCE, Greyhound, Male
River is a 7-8 month old purebred (non-track AKC breeding) GREYHOUND puppy. Silly, rambunctious, loving and simply stunning!

This is a gorgeous and loving young dog. He needs a secure yard, a family with the time to give him the training and attention he needs, and a bunch of kids to play with would be great. River Dance likes other dogs, so he would be a good second dog, especially for a female Greyhound or other sight hound or active breed dog.

His owner became critically ill, and is not expected to survive and there was no time for these puppies, so they were placed in rescue. It is relatively rare for us to have such young Greyhounds.

Riverdance has a great new home.


ANNALISA, Italian Greyhound, Female
This adorable little girl is a purebred Italian Greyhound. She is especially tiny, very active, and likes everyone.

This is a fragile breed of dog and she is particularly small, so a home with young children and big dogs is out of the question. She is a puppy, and needs attention and demands time with her person.

Annalisa is now named Chloe - and she's living the good life up in the mountains...dining on canned pumpkin and chasing around the sofa. Best wishes to you and your new family!


Purebred Italian Greyhound puppies
We are two little boys, 10 weeks old
friendly, playful, fearless. We need experienced homes without young children or other large breed dogs We would prefer a mommy or daddy who is home all of the time or who can take us to work with them.
We are babies, need time and attention and are the cutest little guys ever!

We LOVE people. Our mommy and daddy came to the kennel from a home that had two blue fawn adults but "forgot" to get them altered and were overwhelmed and surprised when mommy had babies.

Dad is now neutered and in a forever home and mommy will be as soon as she has been spayed. Right now she is still playing with her puppies.

Both puppies have great new homes.

FRANKIE VALLI, Afghan Mix, Male
Frankie is a 2 1/2 year old male Afghan Hound mix (possible retriever). Friendly, big, rambunctious, and likes people. Frankie will need a secure yard, a family to play with, and a female companion would be nice. Not an appropriate friend for another male dog. Everyone will ask you "WHAT IS THAT" when you are leash walking with this handsome boy.

Frankie (now Eros) is living the good life with Afghan girl, Autumn.


TIGRA, Podengo Mix, Female
Tigra is a young WHIPPET and PODENGO mix. She is very sweet, very loving and very snuggly little girl. She came from a group of sight hounds rescued from Modesto. She is about 16 lbs and will need a secure yard. She is the most submissive of the group and would need to have a gentle dog as a companion. We could snuggle her for hours! She is adorable and her ears are very tall. She now lives with an art historian and guitarist!

DEX, Greyhound, Male
DEX is aproximately four years old. A young adult male, he was in the animal shelter with a pregnant female, (who had 6 puppies days later), and a youngster about 6 months old. They came from the same owner who simply turned in the whole family, and presumed to be related. He loves his puppy and the female, and gets along with a German Shepherd and an Aussie here. He likes dogs and he loves people. He does not appear to be aggressive with smaller dogs. Initially very shy, he would come to within an arms length of you and when you reached for his head to pat him he would always cower. All the dogs were very thin. Dex is no longer cowering and looking forward to be rubbed and petted.

This is a good sized boy and his bone structure hints that he is probably 1/4 Irish Wolfhound. His coat is smooth. He truly IS a Gentle Giant of a dog, and would be fine as a second dog.

Dex has moved to a different greyhound adoption agency.


Blondy, Afghan Hound, Female
Blondy is a 4 year-old purebred Afghan hound. She has a nice temperament and is a friendly girl who gets along with other dogs. She is is not excitable. She has lived in the company of cats.

She's a very sweet girl. She'll make an excellent companion or addition to a sight hound experienced home. That is our preference. She needs time attention and a secure yard. This is not a breed of dog to spend outside all day, and she *will* need grooming. She is very loving.

Blondy has a great new home.


JAMIE, Whippet, Male
Jamie is a 3-4 year old purebred Whippet. He has been with other dogs, likes people and would prefer the company of a person or family that has someone home all day. He is learning to enjoy walking on a leash. Jamie has basically been a house dog who raised himself. He has not spent any time riding in a vehicle, he could get used to riding. He is slightly overweight and has one blue and one brown eye. He loves to be spoken to and probably will stand for as long as you want him to and be petted.

Jamie now has a great new home!



NINJA, Italian Greyhound, Male
Ninja is a young adult purebred male Italian GREYHOUND. This boy is ready for a fun home. He is fearless, friendly, playful, cheerful, well socialized, smart and gets along with other dogs. He would be fine with another Whippet, Iggie or kitty. He LOVES attention and will follow you around. He has barked at me at least once while I was typing this "Hey ! I'm still here, let's have some fun!"

About 12 lbs, and blue fawn.
Simply darling...and he now has a new home.


MALLORY and DOUGAL, Irish Wolfhounds
Mallory and Dougal are 1 year old purebred IRISH WOLFHOUND puppies. Choose one or both. A knowledge of this breed and experience with sight hounds is important. This is a breed known for it's gentleness and sense of humor.

These two are as friendly as they come, and Dougal will actually put his front paws on your shoulders, look you in the eyes, smile, and give you a slurp. What a couple of cuties.

Both wolfhounds have wonderful new homes.


Mallory and Dougal

Loverboy, Greyhound, Male
Update: Loverboy has a new name: Rocket. Here's a few fun facts from his new dad:

1.  He is the most loved dog on my street.  I am constantly getting people asking me if they can dog sit him.
2.  He has the nicest temperament of any dog I have ever met, only getting "grumpy" one time with other dogs when he had to establish his role as alpha dog.
3.  At the enclosed dog park I take him to he runs like a champ.  I've never seen an animal run that fast.  There are three other greyhounds there and he loves seeing them.
4.  I have a large kennel which I keep open - he gets in it when I snap my fingers at night.  It's really amazing how quickly he adapted.  Only had two accidents in the house and none since I got him on one food.

HI! My name is Loverboy. For some odd reason, I raced at the Tucson track under the name Former Lover, but there is no former at all about me (other than being neutered). I am a love! I like everyone, I love attention and I like to be touched and snuggled. I get along with all dogs so far, I have had both male and female room mates. I am fawn and about 3 1/2 years old. I like people a lot and basically have no real issues anyone has been able to find. Don't I have a great smile? I'd like to have a great home as well. I am one of the smaller Greys for a boy. Some of these guys are huge...not me. I have been in the company of much smaller dogs.

SPOTS, Podengo, Female
Spots is a female PODENGO. She's a young adult, 3 or younger. This friendly young female dog was removed from a small, overcrowded shelter in Modesto Ca. Thank you to this shelter for going out of their way to make sure this group of 5 dogs found along Interstate 5 were safe. This girl is probably the mother of two of these dogs. A 6th one was found in the Bakersfield shelter, and they appear to know each other. They like pother dogs, especially Greyhounds and Whippets.

This is a small, uncommon, sight hound. They need a secure yard, and are excellent climbers. A chain link fence would mean nothing to this nimble breed. Very loving, very pretty and small ( she is under 25 lbs). If you enjoy sight hounds, you will like this breed.

> Learn more about the Podengo...


FRECKLES, Greyhound, Male
non track Greyhound beautiful red and white 2-3 years at most. Freckles is a
very nice, healthy, neutered male
Likes other dogs, and would probably chase your cat. No question about it, he will keep other pesky critters out of your yard. Like most Greyhounds, Freckles likes people. Pulled by a good friend of ours , and owner of Legend, our handsome track Greyhound, when he found him posted in a shelter in the high desert.

Freckles is now living the good life in South Pasadena. Thanks, Mike and wife for taking the time to bring this beautiful young dog to us.


WIRE SPOTS, Podengo Medio, Male
Wire is a very young adult wire coated
PODENGO MEDIO. Also found in Modesto, this young male is very friendly. He is playful and is the first to approach people. He enjoys the company of people as well as other dogs. He's adorable! He is also an excellent climber, and will need a secure yard, preferable without chain link...for Wire Spots, that is a ladder to freedom.
An active, friendly breed, he will probably chase your bunnies and cats. He appears to really enjoy the company of Greyhounds, and is very excited when he sees them.

Phantom, Greyhound, Female
My name is Phantom of the Park - or at least, that's the name I ran under at the track in Tucson. I am a three year old smallish red sable female purebred Greyhound girl. My tail is STRIPED! This is very unusual, and everyone at the kennel points and says how nice it is.

I am very sweet. I have never lived with cats or little children, but I am very soft natured and playful. I would make an excellent second dog especially if you have a neutered male. I do not need an unusual amount of exercise or space. Most Greyhounds do not, and we curl up into small balls, like kitties.

I now have a great new family!

CALYPSO, Greyhound, Male
Update: 02/07
Just a note to update you on Calypso (I call him Bogey after Humphrey Bogart). He has adjusted so very well! He loves to play with his toys and lounge on soft surfaces, ussually the couch. He mastered the doggie door the first day at my home even though it is half his size and he has to "commando crawl" to use it-and he does it so fast! He is such a delight. My family loves him too, my grandchildren all want to come visit me so they can play with him. He is so smart, catches on to things so quickly and he is so willing to please. He is home to stay!

DODGE, Whippet, Male
Dodge is a beautiful, gentle young pureed Whippet. He came from a shelter where he was sent after he was found at the side of a road having been hit by a car. He must have been out having a joy run.

It is doubtful that he ever will need it, he started to heal very quickly and the orthopedist declined to risk any more damage. He has had pain therapy with acupuncture, and has been released by the vet.

Hunter is a tall, 6 year old male purebred Whippet. He is red brindle and white. Very handsome. Very needy...this means he wants and needs to be with a person. He is devastated by his life. Here's his story:

When he was a puppy he was purchased by an older woman who did not train or neuter him. He jumped up on her one day and knocked her down. She broke her hip and he came to us. We placed him in what appeared to be a wonderful forever home. Hunter is not an overly active dog, he is very loving. They always wanted a Whippet and were thrilled to have this beautiful boy. Four years later, he is back here, at the age of 6. The kids have lost interest and the mom and dad have decided that a dog will interfere in their plans to do some traveling.

Hunter now has a great home in Florida.

GENTLEMAN JIM, Whippet mix, Male
Just wanted to give you a quick update on Gentleman Jim (now known as Slim Jim).  If you recall, we were looking to adopt a rescue after our 19-year old Doxie/Terrier mix died of old age about 2 months ago.  My son Jake (11 years old) was convinced that Jim needed to be part of our family--and Jim took to Jake immediately.  Well, Jim is adjusting beautifully! He is well-mannered and friendly, has learned to sit for snacks and his food, is very smart (quickly learning the rules of the house), loves his walks and fetching balls and snuggling with Jake.  He and our 3 year old (female) Lab mix rescue have become fast friends--they play and play and play.  He is much faster than her, of course, but she tries to catch him!  In addition to her people, I can tell she is happy to have another canine companion. 
We could not have asked for a better dog!  Thank you for the important work you do!
