Hi I'm Tippy! I love Toys! They are the best thing ever! I love to dissect the squeakers from every toy and pull out all the stuffing! Shaking the toys really hard is a lot of fun.  I really love people. I follow them around everywhere and want ear scritches and cuddles from everyone I meet. It's the best! Kids are awesome because they are easy to give kisses to! I love giving kisses.  I have a sweet disposition. I like to block my foster parents when they try to walk anywhere. I will spin around to make sure I block their way every chance I get. When I see something that interests me, one day perks up and the other stands straight up! It's very cute!  I am a toy hoarder! I love to pull all of the toys from the toy bin and take them to my slumber ball. I'm not shy at all, quite the opposite actually! I'm very outgoing and love meeting new people and dogs. I give kisses to my Foster parents and my greyhound siblings.  I get along with other greyhounds for sure! I'm thinking I would get along with a kitty way to well... In other words, no kitties for me. I haven't tried the small dogs yet.  I would rather not be ignored! Don't ignore me! I can be an only dog and I kennel very well. I make a little bit of noise when my people come home. I can also live with other dogs and learn to be out of a kennel. I'm pretty adaptable! I'd do best in a home  with no kitties.

About Greyhound Pets of America - MN

About Our Rescue Group...

We are the Minnesota chapter of Greyhound Pets of America.

Greyhound Pets of America is a tax-exempt, non-profit corporation founded in 1987 for the purpose of finding homes for ex-racing greyhounds and educating the public on the suitability and availability of greyhounds as pets.

All of our greyhounds go into foster homes where they can acclimate to their new lives as retired racers. We also get a better idea of their personalities so we can make the best possible match with their new family.

We have found great success in matching the personalities of the greyhounds with the personalities of the new families. We test all our greyhounds to see if they can live with small animals and many of our greyhounds go on to live in families with other pets, including cats.

Greyhound Pets of America - Minnesota is run entirely by volunteers who dedicate their time and talents to the cause of rescuing retired greyhounds. GPA-MN and our volunteers are committed to making sure all our greyhounds have a happy, safe and long life while in our care as well as after they find their forever homes.

If you're planning to get a dog, we hope you will consider adopting one of our retired racers!
