Rico's Info...

I am already neutered, purebred, up to date with shots, and not good with cats.

Rico's Story...
Rico is a 3 year old male who had a very short racing career and came in with he Kansas dogs. He did not pass small dog and cat testing.

Rico is happy, very affectionate, playful and silly.

Lanett was right!!! These people have no respect for privacy!

When I l found out I was joining the SA GREYS family, I checked them out on social media. Most of the hounds gave SA GREYS five stars and made positive comments, so I discounted Lanett's alarming account of having her private parts scrubbed in public.

Now here I am with a splashy hose, soap on my boy parts and prying hands in places they were not meant to be. Goody, who is laughing at me, doesn't know she's next. I'm not going to tell her.

My Struggle is Real,


P.S. Things took a turn for the better after my bath. I got to run around the yard, play with a toy and best of all, lean on peoples while they pet me. You should still file an adoption thingy right now and get me away from these people. Who knows what they'll do next.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rico, 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.
