Because of YOUR help, we have found homes for 11 out of 19 of the greyhounds that came to our family when live racing ended at Tucson Greyhound Park.
Thank you to our Adopters, Volunteers, and Donors!
Congratulations Daisy, who is now known as Destiny.
Violet, Daisy's littermate, just found HER forever home. She has 2 brothers and a sister and is happy as can be!
And Rav joins his new family complete with a mastiff brother named Barley.
Congratulations to Violet and Rav and their new families!
Saint's racing name was Keeper Saint. He joined the AGR family on May 25th. From the beginning, Saint has been just a big, happy boy that really just wants to be with people. We thought perhaps he would like to be a Heartfelt Hound. But he was a bit too relaxed.
Saint met Tom and __, his new Dad and Mom. Saint joined a big family with seven doggie brothers and sisters, five horses, two tortoises, and one parrot.
Penelope (Kay Gold Ogden) arrived from the track on May 21st. She was a bit apprehensive.
But she quickly because a happy, silly girl.
Penelope was adopted by Susan on July 3rd and lives on a ranch with a big, 20-pound kitty brother named Louie. Penelope like to sniff him and gets alone very well with him.
Every day, Penelope loves walking with her mom and visiting the ranch animals. She is quite easy-going around the other dogs on the ranch. She shows no curiosity about the four horses that she sees several times a day.
Arabella, whose racing name Keeper Arabella, joined AGR's family on June 20th. She is a beautiful blue brindle girl.
On July 3rd, Arabella bid farewell to her litter mate, Cossette, and was adopted by Roxanne and Rick.
Arabella loves playing in her back yard. She has 4 favorite doggie toys that she stores in her bed. She is learning house manners and asks politely to be taken outside to do her business. She is also learning that dinner plates are off limits and that treats are awesome.
Roxanne and Rick couldn't be happier with Arabella. They are the perfect family for this beautiful little girl.
Lady Mae's racing name was Dutch Wishes. She joined AGR on May 14th.
Lady Mae met Lorna, Gerry, and her new sisters, Greyhound Halima, and the queen of the house, Carma , and her new brother, Sammy.
Lady Mae also received a new name... her name is now Dakota. Her Mom and Dad say that she is a "Nosy Nellie". She likes to "steal" things that are laying around and take them to another room.
We are so happy that Dakota and her new family are doing well!
Lottie retired and joined the AGR family on May 25th. Her racing name was Dutch Lottie. She was such a big baby who just wanted to be a lap dog
On June 19th, Lottie met Santiago and Casey and her future brother, a black lab named Steve. It was love at first sight on all sides.
Lottie went to an absolutely perfect family for her. She has a brand new name... Maisie.
This is how Maisie spends her time. She loves her new family, especially her brother, Steve!
Callie was known as BWG Callie on the track. She joined the AGR family on May 28th. From the start, she was a loving little girl who just wanted to be told how beautiful she is.
On June 19th, Callie met her new Mom Shea, and her new brothers, Chance and Dozer. She happily joined the brindle pack.
On Callie's first few days in her new home, she thoroughly checked her new house.
Callie quickly banded together with Chance over treat begging and tossing toys around. Callie is a bundle of energy and is always ready to play.
Chloe joined our family on June 1st. She was a month away from turning 2. Her racing name was Kay Kay Hollow.
On June 19th, Chloe met Haley, her new Mom, and her Visla brother and sister, Eva and Gunnar. Chloe is very curious and spends most of the day wandering around the house sniffing and poking about. She gets along really well with Eva and Gunner and is constantly trying to play with them.
Here's Chloe enjoying her forever home.
Mr. Selfridge has a beautiful smile. His racing name was Force, but he wanted to be a star. AGR named him Mr. Selfridge for the PBS show.
On June 5th, Mr. Selfridge met Larry and Lisa. Her little siblings, Peanut and Bradley were smitten by this tall, happy boy. He knew from the beginning that he had found his family.
Mr. Selfridge has been renamed Mr. Holmes, AKA Sherlock because of his curious nature when he arrived at his new home. He watched TV then walked around to the side of it to see if he could find the people.
