Wendy is a 2 /12 year old gorgeous black girl who just reitred from a short race career and is looking for her new forever home. Wendy is not small dog or cat tolerant. She is a bundle of energy. Wendy tosses toys in the air and catches and them comes over for hugs.
I’m Wendy, a medium-size, affectionate, cute, ebony girl that, at times, a little skittish. Through no fault of my own, I was a rebounded to the kennel. My mom had a change in circumstances and could no longer keep me. She’s in tears and so am I. I thought I had a safe, secure refuge, but I guess nothing in this world is guaranteed. I sure miss my big greyhound buddy that I’ve lived with for nearly a year. I wonder if I’ll every see him again. I’m so much better at hello than goodbye. I’m living temporarily with foster mom Marlene and also at times with my former foster mom, Glenda, who picked me up from my former home. One crotch sniff and I recognized her, even though it’s been a year since I saw her. Now I need a new permanent home. I’m a good dog. I’m house broken and, although curious, I’m not destructive in the home. I adore squeaky toys; they keep me entertained for hours. As I’m a sight hound, I would recommend that my new fosters and potential adopters cover ‘stuff’ that they don’t want me to sniff or drool on. If I can’t see it, it doesn’t exist. I’m very talented and can play music by Mozart and Schubert. Well, perhaps that’s a little exaggeration: I love music by Mozart and Schubert! I enjoy home living and want so much to belong to a family. Please consider me when you’re looking for a fur ball to adopt.
Wendy is one sweetheart of a dog. The ride home from the vet’s office was uneventful. She was more than happy in the back of my CRV, looking out the window and feeling the breeze on her nose. Beamer taught her to use the doggie door and Anabel taught her manners, as only another canine can do, after Wendy snatched Anabel’s marrowbone! Wendy is a little timid, although not fazed by the vacuum. She prefers to approach people rather than have people approach her. She loves having her ears stroked and her neck massaged, but waving arms and raised voices will send her out the doggie door PDQ! Wendy is a tail wager but, as her tail moves in a circular motion - like a propeller, she rarely hits doors or swipes coffee tables. This sweet girl is a little underweight but has a healthy appetite. Thus far, she’s enjoyed Taste of the Wild kibble [fowl and salmon] chicken broth, minced chicken, canned tuna, and raw marrow bones, all of which she has consumed with gusto! If a potential adopter does not have a doggie door, but is home most of the time, Wendy will tell her adopter when she wants to go out through whining and pacing. She took her first two-mile walk this morning and is good on the leash, but very alert to bunnies. Wendy has a prey drive – she tried to chomp on a Chihuahua at the vet’s office - so she is not compatible with small dogs and possibly cats, although she gets along well with my thirty-pound American Eskimo. Wendy is a gentle girl that needs gentle handling, and an adopter that understands she needs her space.
Wendy has been returned through no fault of her own. Her adopter had to move to an apartment and was only able to take one dog. She is perfect for the 1st time adopter has she is already home savvy and spent several months in an adoptive home.
