Gypsy is a 2 year black female new to the kennel. She had no recorded races. Gypsy is fine iwth small dogs and cats.
I guess they call me Gypsy because I’ve run around tracks in various states and I’m used to packing my suitcase at the last minute. But hey, I could be wrong. I’m an easy-going, affectionate greyhound with a happy disposition. Our volunteers refer to me as a ‘black beauty’ so I’m wondering if the movie industry is considering making an updated version of ‘Gypsy.’ I know that Aunt Liz, our kennel manager, will teach me how to peel off gloves seductively, but teetering on 5” high heels, that I don’t think I can manage. Oh well, it was just a thought. If I had to choose between Hollywood and a loving home in Tucson, I’ll take Tucson!
Gypsy is looking for a forever home. She is a quiet girl and would do best in a home that would allow her to take her time getting to know them. Gypsy is cat tolerant and has done well with the other greyhounds in her foster home as well as an Australian Shepard and and and American Eskimo dog.
I fall in love with all the dogs I foster, and Gypsy, or as I call her, Fairy Dust, is no exception. This sweet, gentle dog is adjusting well to home living. Finally, she learned the doggie door. Beamer and Anabel are congratulating each other for a training job well done. Mom is delighted – no more cold-nose nudges to my feet, or toe licking at 4:00 a.m! Gypsy has met small dogs, a cat, and kids since living with me, and has done fine with all of them. I call her Fairy Dust because, in the early mornings, when I’m leashing up the crew getting ready for our two-mile walk, Gypsy leaps nimbly around, all excited, but in a very ladylike fashion. In my mind, I see her skipping through the forest with the elves. She is much less suspicious of people and what’s going on around her, responds well to love and gentle handling, and now gives kisses. She has not tried to get up on furniture, has not been destructive in the home, and loves toys. She will whine when I leave the home, but settles down before my car leaves the garage. However, she enjoys pack life so I suspect she would not do well as a solitary pet. For the right adopter, Gypsy- Fairy Dust will be a special addition to the family.
Gypsy has an adoption pending.
