Comments: Venti is a quiet, friendly girl once she knows you. She is playful and too darn cute with the toys. She is learning to be affectionate and is quite the leaner once she knows you. Venti has the most beautiful eyes that just melt your soul. While Venti is not for the first time dog owner, she is oh so darling and whoever adopts this wonderful girl will be rewarded ten fold. Venti did not come from the US racing circuit, but is definitely a greyhound. We are not sure how she will do with other dogs and will be testing her with various dogs over the coming weeks. Venti will need a home without small dogs, cats and children.  Kennel Update: Venti absolutely loves the toys and will chase a ball and bring it back to you.  She is a fun, upbeat girl.  She would prefer to be the only apple of your eye.  Venti is affectionate and loving once she is comfortable with you.  She will need a dog savvy home and will make an absolutely wonderful companion.  Kennel Update:  Venti is very playful – loves to play ball.  She loves all toys. Venti is very affectionate but doesn't like to be smothered.  Venti is sweet, beautiful and stunning.  She can be anxious in new circumstances, so she needs a calm, clear leader to guide her and build up her trust.  She would do best in a calm household.  Venti is doing beautifully on our weekly Brightwater walks – she is learning to relax and enjoy the walks now and walks very well on leash.  She rides well in the car.  Venti is our December Dog of the Month:

Our Adoption Process...

You should be looking for a house dog and a companion. Our dogs are adopted strictly for house pets and are the finest companions you could ask for. They do not do well outside, since they have little body fat nor a thick coat to keep them warm. And, as your best friend, they want to be with you.

You need a fenced yard (minimum height 4ft; no electric fences, invisible fences or barbed wire) unless you're in an apartment, to protect your dog when it goes outside to relieve itself. A door to your house must open into the securely fenced area. All gates must be secure. The fence should be in good repair, with no missing parts or boards. Certain types of fencing are not acceptable because the greyhound can slip through them or are unsafe for greyhounds. Our home visit representative will work with you to determine if your fence is safe for a greyhound.

There should be no obstacles near the fence that a greyhound could use as a jumping point to get over the fence.

The greyhound is totally innocent and will likely be killed on the road if allowed to run loose. You must plan on your dog being confined in the house or a fenced yard. If you walk or jog with it, make certain it is leashed at all times. Retractable leashes (or similar devices) are not acceptable for use with greyhounds. Often people say that they live on five or more acres and they think this should be plenty of room for a dog to live without a fence. This simply doesn't work because of the dog's breeding and extensive training.
You must agree to never stake, tie up, or chain your greyhound to anything.

You must agree to never use your greyhound for breeding, research, experimentation, hunting, or professional racing.

Plan to spend several days at the start with the dog in its new home. There will be a transition period for the greyhound as it adjusts from track and kennel life to home life.

Greyhounds may suffer from separation anxiety when left alone. In many instances we will recommend you purchase or rent a crate for housing your greyhound while you're gone for short periods or several hours. Remember, crates are not cruel. They've been the dog's home while it resided at the track and kennel. However, be realistic in how long you leave the dog crated, since it will have to relieve itself within several hours. We do not recommend crating for more than 4 hours so plan on coming home at lunch or asking someone to come in and let the dog out.

As a sighthound, a greyhound must never be confined to a room without a view such as a laundry room, garage, basement, etc.

You understand that a minimum non-refundable donation of $300.00 (U.S. Funds) is required to adopt a greyhound from Greyhound Pets, Inc. (Payable to Greyhound Pets, Inc. in money order or cashier's check. NO personal checks or cash). The leash/collar combo and muzzle are included. Senior dogs (9 and above) are $125.00 (U.S. Funds).

You understand that a home visit may be required before you will be allowed to adopt a dog.
You agree to allow future visits to check on the dog.
You have patience and time available to help your former racer adjust to its new life (on average it can take up to three months for an ex-racer to be completely settled into its new home). Please be willing to work with your adoption representative and/or VP in trying to solve issues with your dog.

You must agree to keep a hound safety choke collar with identification on your dog at all times. The identification tag with your name and phone number on it, and the Greyhound Pets, inc. tag must be kept on the collar; to call Greyhound Pets, Inc. if your dog becomes lost or missing and to keep GPI informed at all times of the dog's whereabouts, and to return the dog to Greyhound Pets, Inc. if for any reason you cannot keep the dog. If you move, you must notify Greyhound Pets, Inc. and give them your new address, phone number and email address, if applicable.

You must agree to keep the greyhound in good health and proper weight and fitness and to provide at least annual Veterinarian examinations, current vaccinations, teeth cleaning, and worming. After adoption, all veterinary expenses for the greyhound are solely the responsibility of the adopter.

You also agree to allow Greyhound Pets, Inc. to repossess the dog if at any time in their opinion the dog is not being properly cared for.
