I found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking

Gypsy's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Gypsy's Story...
Gypsy just turned 6 and recently arrived from the Kansas farm after a moderate racing career and a couple of litters of pups. This brood mom is done with that and now just wants to be a cherished pet.

Gypsy appears to do fine with small dogs, but not cats. Since she has already had her spay surgery, she is ready for her forever home.

My mentors, Hannah and Hayley, are going to be princesses for Halloween. I don’t think I look good in skirts, so I’m considering other options.

I like the idea of being Superdog. I’d LOVE to wear a cape, but I’m not as keen on wearing a spandex suit. Also, I’m a very calm, easy-going hound. I’m not sure I could pull off the high-energy persona.

My second idea was to be Mary’s little lamb. All I’d have to do is wear a fleece coat and walk along with my person. I LOVE people and walkies. Also, I’m super sticky Velcro, so a costume that requires me to stay with my person is perfect!

If you adopt me before Halloween, I’m willing to dress in any costume you choose, even a princess skirt. I’ll be happy as long as you’re by my side.

P.S. I prefer not to dress as a Gypsy. I’m more of a homebody than an adventurer, so it seems disingenuous. (Hannah taught me that word. She’s a writer, you know.)

FOSTER UPDATE:

Gypsy is doing very well in foster. She is very calm and quiet, but frequently seeks pets and attention. Gypsy is very people oriented and spends her time literally at our feet. Most foster dogs follow us room-to-room then settle on a bed near us, Gypsy prefers to be touching us...sleeping on our feet, if possible.

Gypsy gets along with our male and female greyhounds and female whippet, but hasn't interacted much with them. I think she'd be fine as an only dog if her person is home most of the time. She hasn't shown an interest in toys yet, just people.

Gypsy was apparently already house trained when she arrived...she's never had an accident in the house. She goes out morning and evening to potty, and that's it. Her other outdoor excursions are simply to follow us. Gypsy walks well on a leash and rides well in the car. She sleeps through the night on a dog bed near our bed.

Gypsy is on the timid side and probably would be best suited for a quiet home without small children or a lot of activity. She's a great, loving companion.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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