This is Talented Ralph, age 3. He is a big, strong, black boy who ran 80 races and was retired. We haven't had him long so there's not a whole lot I can tell you yet. I can say that he is going to the vet this week to be neutered (don't tell him) and have his teeth cleaned and get all of his tests and shots, as all of our dogs do. Then he'll be looking for a home.
He is ALL black except for a small spot on his chest. He is still getting used to our kennel but he has already kissed me and that's highly unusual for these dogs. They don't generally kiss - especially this quickly. So i'll go out on a limb to say he's an affectionate boy. He learned the kennel routine here very quickly which is a BIG help with a large dog. That tells us he likes people and wants to please.
Okay, you looked at the pictures. You may have noticed his "Roman nose". Yes, it is kind of hard to overlook. We like to think it makes him unique and special - Handsome even, in a particularly "Godfather" way. Right? Hey, Gumba - Pass the Pizza!! (Oh, my! Do you think he's really an Italian Greyhound in disguise? Good Disguise!)
To arrange to meet this dog and our other available greys, visit our website: www.friendsofgreyhounds.org for all the details. You'll find our manual of care, our application and lots of good information. We are based in South Florida and do not generally adopt out of our area. There are many other greyhound adoption groups in the country and we prefer that you adopt from a local group so that you and your new dog have the backup and support available if you have questions.
If you are local and ready to visit, call us at 954-578-0072 to make an appointment to come to our kennel in Sunrise. If we're not around, the recording will give you our cell numbers. Call or text us! You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org We'd love to hear from you!
