Jeremy's Story...
Whelped: 5/19/02

Jeremy was originally placed through the Humane Society of Pinellas, and his owner has relocated and can't take him. Here's what Jeremy has to say for himself:

Hi, I'm Jeremy, and I'm writing my own profile because my foster mom says that I'm a talker and I need to get this out of my system. So here's the scoop - I turned 8 in May and feel young for my age, as I still have lots of energy around the house. I occasionally love to grab a stuffed toy and pounce on it and toss it around. When it's time to go for a walk, I find that I can bounce quite high when I hear the leash jingle. I do like to take walks, but I prefer to keep them short and leisurely - just around the neighborhood or local park. I don't pull the leash, except when I see a cat - I'm not fond of cats. My foster parents are always saying that I'm a good boy and are impressed with my appetite. I eat all my meals without fussing over them and I love snacks, especially non-fat yogurt and canned pumpkin...yum! I've been in foster care with other Greys and get along with everyone, but need to go to a family with just big dogs. My foster mom has two gerbils who I found to be quite interesting at first, but now they're just annoying background noise when they run on that silly wheel, so I ignore them. It's too bad they can't do sprints in the yard like I do. I sometimes make my foster parents laugh by sneaking up behind "mom" or "dad" and goosing them and sticking my head through their legs. I don't think they realize that the kisses and hugs I get as a result are really what I am looking for!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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