Greyhound

Goldie came to us with five other dogs that were confiscated from their owner for severe neglect. The dogs were fed sufficiently but were kept outdoors in a filthy, freezing, muddy pit with a makeshift lean-to for shelter. They were hugely infested with fleas and other parasites and had not received veterinary care - even for a broken leg in one case. In spite of Goldie's rough start, her initial shyness has turned into her being affectionate, waggy-tailed and loving attention from people. Because Goldie was not kept as a pet, she did not get formal obedience training but has shown she is a quick learner. She is crate trained, walks on a leash and is learning what it’s like to live indoors – on a soft, warm bed for the first time.

Goldie's adopter will need to be knowledgeable and experienced with sight hounds; we will not be placing her as a first-time dog. She will need a home without small animals, including cats, rabbits, birds, etc. She should do fine with other dogs. Goldie is now parasite-free, spayed, microchipped and current on vaccinations. She weighs 77 pounds. Please email adoptarescuedog@aol.com for an application.

About South Bay Purebred Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Established in 1998.

South Bay Purebred Rescue was founded by a few veteran foster homes. Trying to stand out among dozens of other groups, we chose to focus primarily on purebred dogs (although we're still suckers and do take mixed breeds regularly). We are as passionate about finding appropriate forever homes for our dogs as we are about matching the right dog with the adopter. We welcome new volunteers to join us in our effort to save as many adoptable dogs as we can.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We have adoption fairs most Saturdays from noon-3:00 at Pet Club in South San Jose.

Our Adoption Process...

We screen by asking a variety of questions in person at our pet fairs or over the phone if we're setting up an appointment during the week. Once a determination has been made that the dog may be a match for your family, you get to meet with the dog and decide if you'd like to adopt. Then you will be given an adoption contract to fill out and sign. Pay the adoption fee and you go home with your new pet!

We are as careful as we can to place dogs in well-matched situations. If we feel that the dog you're interested in is not a good match for your family, schedule, level of experience or any other reason, we will not do the adoption. We will try and guide you to another dog that would be more appropriate for you, but there is no appeal process once an adoption is declined.

We cannot hold dogs. If you decide to wait on making a decision, please be prepared for the fact that the dog you were interested may be adopted by someone else in the meantime.
