Boris's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Boris's Story...
Boris just turned 2 and arrived on the latest Kansas haul with sibs,Coconut and Jelly Bean. He is the the son of Masha from our last haul. Because of his young age he had a very limited or nonexistent racing career.

Boris will be available soon. He does fine with small dogs and he appears to do fine with cats.

He is very large, outgoing, beautiful, friendly and always happy. He didn't like the big Costco treats I give at night and was very carefully stashing them under the dog bed in his crate. I started giving him soft jerky treats and he likes those. He tells you when he needs to potty, hasn't chewed up anything in his crate, has had no accidents and listens really well. Boris will stand and bark in his crate from the minute I turn the vacuum on till I turn it off. I vacuum a lot...he barks...a lot :)

SPECIAL NEEDS: Heart worm positive. Has undergone treatment. Restricted activity for three months (through 9/15), then retest to ensure heart worms are gone.

I can understand why a bunch of worms moved into my heart. I love everything, so it was probably a great place to call home. The treatments to evict them were hard and I lost a bunch of weight, but I'm feeling better every day.

I'm a gentle boy, who can live with small dogs and maybe even kitties. I'd love to find a forever family who just wants to love me and make me a part of their daily lives.

If you'd like a new family member with a really special heart, I'd love to meet you.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Boris, 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.
