Rocky's Story...
Rocky has a cute pink nose, due to having discoid lupus. He does not need any special care or medicine for it. We just give him fish oil with his food to maintain good skin. Rocky was returned to us in November of 2014. So, he’s been around the kennel for a while. We truly think there is a good fit out there for him. He is a very loving dog and can be very playful. He needs a home where his owners will love on him, but also respect his space when he needs it. We think he would do best in a quieter home with no young children or cats. He’s great on a leash and can do stairs effortlessly.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Oak Ridge 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 Oak Ridge 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 Oak Ridge paves the way for another one to be saved.
