CHIPPEWA's Story...
This is WW’s Chippewa, but we call him “Chip” for short. He had a relatively long racing career, running on three different tracks. Now that his racing days and kennel life are over, he needed to learn how to live in a people house. In the beginning he had a lot of work to do; however, he is a very fast learner. Within 12 hours he learned how to use the dog door and front steps. Within 36 hours he learned to not get on the counters or snatch food from people’s hands. Within 4 days he started responding to his name and not waking his people up at 5AM for training. This is because he can follow good directions and is easily corrected.
He has soft fir, even for a greyhound, and he loves hugs. He is not a hip hugger, nor is he standoffish. He is very affectionate. Cats are safe in his presence, and he does like kids. However, he does not understand how big and powerful he is and can be a little rough at times. This strength makes it difficult for him to navigate linoleum floors; throw rugs had to be put down to give him some grip on the floor. He likes to collect items that interest him: shoes, hair brushes, shirts, and reusable grocery bags. He has not destroyed anything, but the potential is there. He does not seem to be afraid of anything, and he is very comfortable in his own skin.
In one sentence, Chip is a smart, confident, friendly, and affectionate hound who enjoys being himself.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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