Maya's Story...
Maya is a 1 1/2 year old female new to rescue. She had a short racing career if any. Maya is quite shy and timid and will need to be placed in a quiet, patient home perhaps with another dog. Because of her shyness, she would do better in an adult home. She is doing fine with the cat. WIth patience and gentleness, she will blossom.

FOSTER UPDATE:

Maya is a sensitive, young and extremely shy greyhound around people, especially men. She likes to play with her toys and run with her two greyhound roommates in the yard. Maya’s not sure what to make of the resident cat and usually avoids it. Maya has an open crate in her foster home where she can retreat if loud noises disturb her and she needs to feel safe. She also occasionally sleeps in the crate at night. Maya is house trained using a doggie door, is well behaved in the home and can be left alone and crated for two hours without getting anxious. She has a good appetite and no foods seem to bother her. Maya enjoys her walks but when a car whizzes by, she will sometimes pull on the leash. Maya is slowly learning to trust her fosters, enjoys being groomed and is starting to seek affection.

Maya has an adoption pending.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Maya, 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.
