From the moment she arrived at GAC, there was something special about Honor. She really doesn’t need to play with the other dogs, just wants everyone to know she is in charge. She loves to stick her nose through the fence to say “Hi!” in the hope that someone will be nearby to pet her. She also enjoys being housed in the front room of the kennel so she can see lots of people coming and going. If Honor could blog or tweet, she would have a huge following. She can’t stop running around the exercise field — this girl has moves!
This tall and regal hound is stunningly handsome and named for the son of a king in JRR Tolkien’s Fellowship of the Ring. He loves lounging around on his pet cot covered with lots of comfy blankets – he’s a prince, after all. Logolas holds his head high to survey his new surroundings, always ready to join the fellow arrivals from Kansas. This big and strong dog yelps with excitement when he gets a chance to hang out with hounds and humans. Any volunteer entering his royal chamber (doggie condo) is greeted with prancing circles and lots of tail wagging.
Beautiful, intense Chique spent some special quality time alone with a GAC volunteer recently while hanging out in our backyard green space – a large yard with artificial turf. She took full advantage, running joyous Greyhound “zoomies” round and round! What abandonment and pure delight this lady showed while giving those legs of hers a good stretch.
Since Ms. Chique is very affectionate, her GAC volunteer got down on the ground with her to spend quality time enjoying a beautiful sunny day together. What a lover this girl can be, and she is especially fond of belly rubs! Sweet Chique will need to find a forever home free of small dogs and cats and filled with lots of attention.
This shy, timid and contemplative young lad has made giant strides in overcoming his fear of being outside the kennel environment. On long walks he now stops to sniff everything — a really good sign that he is relaxed enough to act like a dog!
He walked right past a neighbor’s flock of geese and Guinea Fowl, and some tall bamboo swaying in the wind did not frighten him in the least. Little steps yes, but a very big accomplishment. Some greys just take a little more time to get comfortable being around people and other animals. Because Coppertone was so brave on his walk, he was rewarded with lots of hugs and love along with a dog biscuit thrown in for good measure.
