Marley's Story...
Hi! I'm Marley, and I am a one year old, petite greyhound mix! I love life and everyone that crosses my path! I am very intelligent and eager to please. I am looking for a family that enjoys being outdoors and another pet sibling would be great!! Will you be my new person!?!

Marley is very sweet, about 30 lbs, and just wants to be around people. She loves to play, whether it be with a person, tennis ball or a stick. She has a very calm, cuddly side to her as well and is very affectionate! She has endless amounts of kisses to give.
She is about a year old and has been bounced around from home to home with no one giving her the time and attention she deserved. In her most recent home, she was spending 23 hours a day crated and wasn't even allowed outside to potty. She was using puppy pads. She is slightly fearful of unfamiliar things (like air conditioning returns that make sudden noises), but she adjusts quickly. We are working on her initial reaction when introduced to new dogs, which, right now is inappropriate, but once she has gotten to know a new dog, she LOVES to play. She developed some bad habits, but has greatly improved in her foster home!

Marley is potty trained, crate trained, and walks well on a leash.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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