Gund will need to be adopted within about a 200 mile radius of Lansing.
To be totally honest here, I will probably be very shy of you when you first meet me. It took me almost a month to not be afraid of my foster mom. Now that I trust her, I jump up and down on my front legs when she comes home and I am often coming to her for attention. While I really like her now, I can be a little stubborn about some things. At first I refused to go in a crate like my female siblings so I was kept gated in the laundry room. The gate is 5 foot high because I could probably jump over anything smaller -- in fact, if I really wanted to, I could probably jump this gate! But now I did learn to be crated. And I will probably need to be crated for a year or so because I have chewed up some things I shouldn't in the laundry room.
I get along with all the other dogs here but I do have to be watched around the really small dogs. I am not mean and don’t seem to have much of a prey drive but I try to play with even the little dogs and foster mom is worried I may hurt them because I get so excited. I really need another large dog to play with and if you already have a sighthound, that would be cool. But don't worry. If you have another medium large dog of any breed, I am happy to play with them.
Car rides are fun and I even went for a walk in a busy park. I did try to hide under picnic tables when there were a lot of people close by but did pretty good walking on a leash with a harness on. I did met a few dogs there and really liked that, though.
Since I am a sighthound, I will need a physically fenced in yard that is about 6 foot tall. Anything shorter probably won’t keep me inside until I become as affectionate with you as I am with my foster mom.

Our adoption fee for dogs that are not seniors is $220. All dogs are spayed or neutered and up to date on vaccines and heartworm.
Our adoption process includes an application, personal and vet reference checks, and a home visit. We do not ship dogs under any circumstances.
We do not have a facility; all of our dogs are fostered in private homes. To view our dogs, please check our front page for the dates of our next Pet Parade. Appointments outside of Pet Parade to visit our dogs are only available after an application has been filled out, and processing has begun.
Please be kind to our volunteers. E-mail inquiries will be answered much faster than phone inquiries; our phone number is a voice mailbox only.
