Ruff Ruff! My name is Atlas
|Size:||Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)||Sex:||Male||ID#:||4809742|
I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
Atlas is a handsome brindle mix that loves to be around people and other dogs. He was an owner surrender in Kentucky; he is very clean and gentle with people. Atlas is young, playful and affectionate. We think he would respond very well to basic training.
Atlas would do best as the only dog in the family (or perhaps with one more dog, but it has to be a compatible match). He may be trainable with cats, but we're not sure. Since he is on the skittish side, and also a climber, his ideal home would have a securely fenced yard and lots of supervision so he can adjust to his new life safely.
If you're considering Atlas, call the kennel and talk with Louise. She can offer suggestions on the best fencing for Atlas.

The adoption of a greyhound from Greyhounds Friends is a carefully structured process. We work hard to ensure we place greyhounds in homes that are very well-matched and compatible. The safety and well being of the greyhounds is of the utmost and prime importance for the organization and our staff. Please carefully read the steps in the adoption process. There is an adoption fee of $250 with each adopted dog (goes towards neutering, shots, and a collar and leash).
