Sheldon's Story...
DOB: 05/05/2014 
Cat Trainable - Yes ​

Our policy is to reserve the cat-trainable dogs for those homes that truly require them. If you have no small animals, you will need to adopt a dog that is not deemed small animal trainable.

Sheldon tested positive for antibodies to Ehrlichia. This only indicates that he was exposed and not that he was or ever would be sick with it. However, he was treated with a month of doxycycline anyway. While racing Sheldon suffered a right hock (rear leg) fracture. It has healed well and should not affect enjoyment of a normal pet life. Glucosamine supplementation may help in the coming years. During Sheldon's dental, teeth were extracted. The extraction sites are healing well, and the sutures will dissolve on their own.

Sheldon is a happy, friendly guy. He sometimes has a hard time containing his enthusiasm! Be patient and consistent with him and he'll figure things out. He generally crates well, but he much prefers to be out with the people, so he will sometimes whine a bit. He enjoys rawhide bones. Watch him closely in the house initially as he may still have the urge to "mark" thing.

Sheldon did well in cat testing, but has never lived with a cat. Use a muzzle initially, and closely monitor all interactions. When unable to monitor the interaction, some form of physical barrier should be used, i.e. crating. 

​Sheldon interacted well with the other greyhounds. Caution should be used whenever in the vicinity of non-greyhounds.

​A fenced yard is required to adopt Sheldon.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sheldon, a Seattle Greyhound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Greyhound for sale in Seattle, or seeking a Greyhound dog from a breeder in Seattle.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Seattle 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 Seattle 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 Seattle paves the way for another one to be saved.
