Facts about Rihanna

  • Breed: Greyhound
  • Color: White - With Black
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 625
Rihanna came in from Kansas, is 8 1/2 and a former brood mom. She did not pass small testing and will likely not be cat tolerant either. She will be available soon.

When I arrived in Tucson, someone called me a cow dog. Because I've been a mommy dog for the past couple years, I thought they were making a joke about being a milk cow. I fed a bunch of hungry little greyhound puppies!

Later, Josh told me I'm considered a cow dog because I'm white and have big black spots. I don't mind being teased. I've developed a good sense of humor running after the little devil dogs they call puppies.

I'm eight and a half years old, so I'd really like to find my forever person fast. Not that I'm not enjoying my foster home. I am. I like my foster mom and my foster greyhound brother. He's an older dog like me, and we get along just fine.

I think my perfect forever home would be loving and low key, without noisy kids, constant activity or small pets. If you're retired like me and home most of time, I think I'd be happy as an only dog.
I'd love to be your companion, even if we spend most of our time just hanging around the house. All I need is daily neighborhood walks, and that's good for both of us!

Looking for Love in Retirement,
Rihanna

Rihanna is a love bug once she gets to know you. She loves to be pet and will follow you room to room. She is well behaved in the house, and uses a doggie door.

Rihanna lives with another female greyhound, with no issues. She has been left alone with the other hound for seven hours with no indication of separation anxiety. Rihanna does growl briefly if the other dog bets too close to her food or bed. Resource guarding is not unusual in greyhounds new to the pet life, and goes away as they become more comfortable in their home.

Rihanna is a couch potato, although she is learning to play with toys.

Rihanna is best suited for a quiet family home without children. She could be happy as an only dog if her human companion is home a lot.
