I found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.

Moxie's Info...

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

Moxie's Story...
Moxie is a sweet young boy, who will be 1 in November, so he was a non-racer. He appears to fine with small dogs and cats. Moxie is very shy and will do best with an experienced greyhound adopter.

My new name is Moxie. I haven't decided yet whether the person who named me was being ironic or the name was aspirational. You see, I'm quite shy. New situations and especially noises make me very uncomfortable.

My personality is the polar opposite of courage and know-how. However, I did notice the definition of moxie also included "determination." I am determined...determined to find a nice, quiet forever home and a person who will love me, just as I am, forever.

I'm getting braver every day, as I learn more about being a pet and living in a home. I'm moving into a special foster home on November 1st with a nice lady who has a bunch of other dogs, some of whom were shy like me.

I really like the idea of having doggie brothers or sisters, and living with someone who can help me overcome my shyness. Maybe I'll post an update a couple weeks after I move to foster.

Keep me in your thoughts,

Moxie

FOSTER UPDATE:

He is very young. His perfect owner would be someone who has a confident dog (or several!) and has had puppy experience. Puppy proofing is a must.

He has gone out on two walks with my group and has done super well. He has been "helping" my construction guys. He does not care for sudden movements but is getting better about that.

He is not a spook but just young. He is very playful so someone with a younger dog would be great. They don't necessarily need to have grey experience but young dog experience would be a must.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Moxie, 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.
