Laz is a 3 year old, handsome, brindle male, with a smile that is a mile wide, who is looking for someone that is willing to love and spoil him rotten.  

Here is what his foster says about him.

Laz is a big loveable boy (85 lbs). He loves to chase balls, is very affectionate and especially loves his ears rubbed.  He does need to work on his manners when there are treats and toys. He is still working on steps and house breaking, but has made progress. We find him very outgoing. He is leaning towards not being cat friendly, but does well around other dogs.

About Friends of Retired Greyhounds

About Our Rescue Group...

FOR Greyhounds Mission Statement
Friends of Retired Greyhounds is a 501c3 non-profit, all volunteer organization dedicated to:

* Cooperating with kennel operators and other adoption groups to place retired greyhounds in responsible, loving homes.

* Working with veterinarians to insure that dogs adopted from FOR greyhounds are altered, vaccinated, and in general good health before placing them in homes;

* Educating individuals and groups about greyhounds, their history, their lives as racing dogs, and our adoption program.

Our Adoption Process...

Every greyhound that comes to us for placement in a loving pet home is spayed/neutered; has current immunizations; teeth cleaned including any necessary tooth extractions; is micro chipped for permanent identification; nails are trimmed; treated for fleas/ticks; heartworm tested; and any other medical needs are taken care of. Each greyhound also goes to it’s adopted home with a martingale style collar and matching lead, and a training muzzle.

All of our dogs are either placed in foster homes or are placed into our cell dog program at “Crowley County Correctional Facility” in Olney Springs, Colorado.

Our foster homes, as well as the prison receive a dog bed, toys, dog food, treats, brushes, toothbrushes, toothpaste, food and water dishes, etc. for each dog. Some of our generous foster homes choose to provide some or all of these needs, but we provide the rest.

Of course, the longer the dog is with us, the higher the costs for feeding, and often the medical fees will be. Most dogs spend well over a month to three or four months with us. But…that moment when a greyhound finds a loving, responsible forever home and the new adopter falls in love with their new dog... PRICELESS!
