Cheyenne's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Cheyenne's Story...
Cheyenne was dumped in a rural area outside of Colorado City, Texas--she was in the company of 5 other sighthounds. It's suspected that the "hunters" that owned the pack decided that they didn't want to feed their dogs during the summer and they just let them loose.

Cheyenne is doing very well considering her ordeal and is in foster care, in Lubbock. Out of curiosity we did her DNA--that's why we are sure she is part-Mastiff. It's easy to see the Mastiff influence in her face. She's very pretty and is a great variation on both breeds--very sturdy at over 80 pounds--but with the Greyhound's prototype and lean build--she's 2/3's Greyhound--about 12% Mastiff, and the other percentage is "mixed" but likely sight-hound predominant.

Cheyenne has done very well under the leadership of her foster family and also their dog-Celeste--, another sight-hound in the group that was rescued from the same perilous situation. She is still shy but truly loves human attention and interaction as well as canine companionship. We don't believe she would do well as an "only dog". We have determined that she is cat-tolerant--we recently tested her and she showed no interest in cats--we tested her in a home and at the cat-enclosure at PetSmart. Also, on leash-walks--she ignores feral cats. As far as living in a home with children--we think she might do better with older children--ages 9-10 and older.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lubbock 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 Lubbock 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/Mastiff breeders who help with Greyhound/Mastiff rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Lubbock paves the way for another one to be saved.
