Luke's Story...
Luke is a happy 2 year old red fawn boy capable of giving Paul Newman a run for the money as “Cool Hand Luke”. He’s got the confidence of a much more mature hound but throws in the joyful curiosity of the young dog that he is. He looks out at his new environment with his ears up and a sparkle in his eyes, all enhanced by the beautiful dark markings on his expressive face. In the few short days of his new retirement status, he’s mastered the command to go down before leaving his crate or receiving his meals. He can also tackle stairs with enthusiasm, if not with grace. As long as he has a soft bed behind him, he’ll even do a sit on command. Bowing is his way of asking for treats or playful attention and his indoor manners are exceptional! From the very first night, he’s slept quietly and calmly all night long with only a few soft whimpers if his people oversleep and he needs to go outside. His crate is his castle where he stretches out willingly for long winter naps.

Toys are still a bit of a mystery but he’s been known to “relocate” them into his crate for safe keeping until he figures out what to do with them. Living with another greyhound poses no problems, but he isn't dependent on the company. He’s also affectionate with his people, but not needy. Walking is a new adventure each time and he’s gradually learning the rules about staying close to the side of whoever holds the leash. Squirrels and other small animals, including cats, pose no problems. He’s interested but not enough to bother with more than a look or two. He doesn't even get up when the resident feline walks by his crate! Food of any type is his greatest motivation, but he takes his treats gently and waits, a little bit impatiently, for his meals. All in all, he’s a marvelous companion and is just waiting to bring his love for life into the forever home of someone fortunate enough to recognize his many virtues!!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Luke, a Spencerville Greyhound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Greyhound for sale in Spencerville, or seeking a Greyhound dog from a breeder in Spencerville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Spencerville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Spencerville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Greyhound breeders who help with Greyhound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Spencerville paves the way for another one to be saved.
