Hi I'm Heart, aka "Fire Dog". My favorite things include toys, walks, ear scritches, car rides, and being brushed and having my butt rubbed! I absolutely love going after balls and will drop them as soon as you approach me.  I have a gentle disposition and a tendency to lean. At times I have one ear that curls forward while the other curls back which looks adorable according to my foster mom.  I am friendly and very likable, but can be shy at first with big men.  I get along with people, cats, all dogs, and kids.  I would rather not be at soccer games because all the commotion can make me a little nervous. This is all new to me!  I need a loving forever home preferably with a small dog. As I enjoy following my foster sibling the pug around.

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!
