Hounds For Adoption

At the moment, we are accepting applications from residents of Connecticut and surrounding states.

Additional fees and wait time may occur if you’re adopting into Massachusetts due to the state’s requirements.
In addition to a state-required isolation period which increases adoption wait times, dogs adopted into MA must be free of all internal and external parasites.
As a large majority of dogs coming to us have a resistant strain of hookworms, the wait time for a dog for MA applicants has increased.
WAG appreciates your patience and understanding as we do our best to follow these state guidelines.

Please email Adoptions@WeAdoptGreyhounds.org for more information!

Sprinkles

Sprinkles (Pat J Sprinkles) is a 2 year old retiree looking for her forever home! We were told she is fairly high prey drive, but he is doing great with the 30lb retriever in her foster home, so we’ll be testing her with cats and small dogs, just to verify.

Sprinkles’ perfect home, we’re finding, would most likely require another dog (not necessarily a greyhound) and would be a free standing home, not a condo or apartment. She is a VERY vocal little girl who makes her presence in the crate known. She has a very high pitch, squeaky bark! Sprinkles also seems very brave and is unconcerned with passing cars, and loud noises. She also loves to give hugs and kisses, though we are actively working on keeping her from jumping on strangers. Sprinkles has a puppy mentality and will need correction on counter surfing habits (unless you’re on a diet and would like her to eat your food from the counter!). We are unsure how She would do with kids, so anyone with dog savvy chick seen that would like to meet Sprinkles, please let us know! We have a feeling she would be great with kids. Sprinkles is still coming out of shell and as we learn more, we will keep everyone updated! She does seem to have a calmer demeanor for her age.

Jojo is thriving in her foster home and loves everyone she meets! So much so, that she hugs them ALL! She is still learning that men are ok (and they actually provide more delicious cookies than the women do), but other than that, every person is her best friend! As previously noted about Jojo, her racing family would really love lifetime updates on her and she needs to keep her name when she does get adopted.

Jojo has only met her small dog foster siblings through the crate, but so far, she seems to be doing well with them. She has not been cat tested yet. She previously love with a little girl on the greyhound farm she came from, so we think she’d be ok with older, dog savvy kids (who aren’t afraid of hugs and kisses!).

Walker (WK By Pass) was returned earlier in the year for not getting along with the new baby in the family. This is the second time for Walker getting returned, so we’re dedicated to make the next family his perfect match.

Walker is cat and small dog safe and previously lived as an only dog, though he gets along with the calmer greyhound in his foster home. Walker will be turning 10 in January and just had a dental cleaning. He lost some teeth and will most likely need another dental next year and will unfortunately lose more.

Walker’s ideal home would be one with no kids - no kids living there, no chance of having kids live there, and no kids visiting. Walker is very stressed by children, regardless of age. He also has some resource guarding tendencies, so he should not be allowed on couches or human beds and have his own area to retreat to when needed. Walker does now currently have a two time bite history, and the family needs to know that and take that into consideration when inquiring about Walker. This is why we will be extra diligent in his placement. Please PM us for more details.

Walker has excellent leash and house manners. He loves to sleep, take short and slow walks, he does not counter surf and is 100% potty trained. He does sometimes prefer to go potty on the leash because it is what he’s used to. Walker does not need a yard that is fenced in, but cannot be let off leash at all without one.

Walker is available for adoption in CT and surrounding New England states.

Dolly is a 2 year old black beauty who we are still getting to know! She is sister to recently adopted Dotty (VJ Dontstartnow). Dolly has amazing ears and even a goofy, split tongue! Dolly seem to be cat and small dog safe with minimal prey drive outside on walks. She is nonreactive to barking dogs and is a joy on leash.

She also loves to be with her people- she always has to be close by, whether she’s following you around the home or right next to you cuddling! She could possibly be ok as an only dog (we know her sister is doing great as an only dog!) but also lives in harmony with the foster family’s two other greyhounds. Her fosters say she is a bit of a counter surfer, so they’re working on that! We think she should be ok around children of all ages.

Dolly still needs to be spayed with our veterinarian, but we would consider a foster-to-adopt arrangement until she is spayed.
