Hi I'm Tara! Everyone just LOVES to pet me as I have this amazing soft, fluffy, blue brindle coat! I know I'm a cutie and just adore the attention! I'm a big cuddle bug and enjoy being next to you on the couch! I love to play with toys and hoard all of them into my kennel or carry them in my mouth around the house! I get along with the other resident greyhounds but I do have strong alpha tendencies and like to be the Queen of the household! I would do best in a home without other animals. I enjoy walks and walk calmly on lead. I'm not a fan of the kennel, but do go in there when my foster family is at work.

About Greyhound Pets of America - MN

About Our Rescue Group...

We are the Minnesota chapter of Greyhound Pets of America.

Greyhound Pets of America is a tax-exempt, non-profit corporation founded in 1987 for the purpose of finding homes for ex-racing greyhounds and educating the public on the suitability and availability of greyhounds as pets.

All of our greyhounds go into foster homes where they can acclimate to their new lives as retired racers. We also get a better idea of their personalities so we can make the best possible match with their new family.

We have found great success in matching the personalities of the greyhounds with the personalities of the new families. We test all our greyhounds to see if they can live with small animals and many of our greyhounds go on to live in families with other pets, including cats.

Greyhound Pets of America - Minnesota is run entirely by volunteers who dedicate their time and talents to the cause of rescuing retired greyhounds. GPA-MN and our volunteers are committed to making sure all our greyhounds have a happy, safe and long life while in our care as well as after they find their forever homes.

If you're planning to get a dog, we hope you will consider adopting one of our retired racers!
