Hi I'm Broad! I love snuggling and getting petted. I lean into my person's touch and want nothing more than to be skin-on-skin touching my people all the time. I adore every person I meet and introduce myself by putting my head right under your hand to make it easy for you to pet me! I also love my crate. It's my safe space, and I get so excited to run into it at mealtimes and when I find a special prize I want to hoard. I have a great collection of toys in my crate.  I have a very sweet, affectionate nature, with occasional bursts of pure puppy joy! I am a velcro-dog! I really just want to be with you. I'm also a pillow-sleeper. I always want to have a stuffed toy to lay my head on at night. Once my foster people took my stuffed toys out of my crate (they said something about me "running out of room" because I had so many), and I slept with my head on a hard chew-bone until they realized their mistake and gave me a stuffy back!  I don't need a fenced-in yard, but I really like my foster family's yard! It's big enough that I can zoom and zoom, and I like to bring a toy outside with me and then zoom around with it! 

I get along with every person I've met! I haven't met many kids yet, but my foster people think I'd do okay with respectful children. The more hands in the home, the more petting I'll get! I also like other dogs and would enjoy a home with other playful dogs. My foster siblings are two small terrier mixes (20 and 30 lbs), and I'm very respectful of them. I defer to my little foster brother, who rules the roost, and like to follow the lead of my foster sister. 

I would rather not be away from you too much. I do okay in my kennel when my foster family is running errands or busy, but I really do want to be with you as much as possible.  I need someone who will be patient with me and teach me about living in a house. I'm still very much a puppy, so my foster family is teaching me not to counter-surf or chew up things that I find. I respond very well to direction, but I'm still young and sometimes I need reminders.

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!
