We are adopting Indie, formerly Cherished Prize, from Greyhounds Only (a wonderful adoption organization based in the upper Chicago suburbs. She comes tomorrow and in preparation we have bought her two beds, a giant crate (that we will phase out when she is ready), two leashes, two martingale collars from a wonderful seller on Etsy (GramaryeCottage), raised dog bowls, and a dog food container.
She’s a super sweet gal who loves to lean. She’s crazy about squeaky toys, and we’ve been told she will likely be a fetcher.
This blog is a way to give greyhounds, a wonderful breed, more exposure. These dogs are beautiful and deserve a warm and loving home that will love them in all their laziness.
is affectionate and silly. During photos, he preferred to roll around
in the grass, begging for belly rubs. He will need some leash work
because he tends to lunge and spin. He may be a bit too much for small
Racing Name: Vogo Eden Offspring of: Cry Kubota x Kay V Arrington Sex: Female Birth Date: 04/22/2012 Weight: 60 lbs Color: Brindle Location: GO Kennel Cat Tolerant: No Status: Available - www.greyhoundsonly.com
Eden is a beautiful red brindle girl. She is tolerant, easy going and calm. She should be a good choice for a first time adopter. Eden is the littermate of Vogo Cadet….and they are the puppies of the recently adopted Cry Kubota.
And here he is! Forwren (nicknamed Renny) is a 77-lb very cool looking hound! His little bio states:
is a strikingly spotted black-and-white hound. He is a playful,
confident guy who is very strong and stubborn on leash. He may be best
suited for a home with older children because he does air snaps when
excited and when playing with toys. He also cannot live with cats.
This pretty dark brindle girl is Tops. Apparently she wasn’t too interested in racing, as she only ran one race and has been retired at 1 year 8 months old. She’s cat safe and available at Greyhounds Only.
Jedi Aruba is an absolutely gorgeous 2-year-old, 57-pound, girl who tested cat safe. At her evaluation with Greyhounds Only, she was described as “…playful,
curious, and confident. She is very strong on leash and could use some
work on her leash walking skills. When getting a drink of water in
turn out, she stands in the bucket.”
is a just two year old who has the typical happy-go-lucky personality
of a young pup. Her tail wags non-stop. She is active, busy, curious
and affectionate. She had fun playing with the squeaky toys during her
evaluation. She should fit in just about anywhere.
Steve Schiferl was GO’s photographer for the reunion event. He’s been uploading albums on facebook and stating “Please feel free to download and use any pictures of your hounds for your own personal use.“
I saw these of Boone on the radar run and thought you might like to save them :)
These cute and tiny little girls (both weigh 48 pounds each) are littermates and up for adoption through Greyhounds Only. Mighty Mouse is black and Nitro Sweet Pea is red brindle. Neither tested cat safe.

Babe is an affectionate, calm and easy-going girl. She gives face-washing kisses. Although she is a plus-size girl, she is easy to handle and should be a good choice for a first-time adopter.
