Hopper's Info...

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

Hopper's Story...
Hopper is nearly 4 and just retired from a short racing career and hitched a ride from Kansas to join us. She is not small dog or cat tolerant.

I want to start out by saying I'm a greyhound. At spa day, several people made comments about my thick, fluffy fur and, let's say, robust proportions. They said a black bear must have sneaked onto the hauler. Totally not true!

If they had paid attention, it would have been clear I'm a greyhound. I have long legs. I'm also friendly and super chill. I came from a winter wonderland, people! ALL the doggies in Kansas have beautiful fur coats.

Now that we have that settled, we can focus on the real issue. I'm still waiting to find a foster home. I think I'd be happy as an only dog or with another dog, as long as I can be in charge. Grrrrr! Just Kidding. I don't growl. I was just practicing my bear impersonation.

If you want to scare everyone in your neighborhood and pretend you have a black bear, I'm totally in. For it to be convincing, you're going to have to find something to cover my needle nose and spindly legs.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Hopper, 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.
