Katie's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Katie's Story...
Kate is a 4 year old light fawn female, who has just retired from a moderate race career. He small dog and cat status is unknown.

She is a gorgeous light fawn girl, that is very vocal and will talk to you.
Her tail curls over her back like a flag.

I’m a fawn beauty called Katie. I’m a medium size hound that’s active and friendly. My puppy days are over, but I still like to play and schmooze with dogs and people. They say I’m a talker. I say I’m practicing my vocals to become an opera star. I would love to sing at the opera house in Sidney, Australia. So to my future adopter, please save your quarters and I’ll save my doggie biscuits to buy two tickets to Australia. Gotta go, it’s time to practice scale.

Katie is now in foster.


My name is Katie, and I have been in foster care at the Riegel Ranch for two weeks. I am really enjoying my retirement. My first day in my foster home, I wasn't really sure what I was supposed to do. I kept seeing Reba and Cedar playing, but I wasn't exactly sure what playing meant. By the next day, I had it totally figured out. I love, love, love, plushy squeaky toys. I gathered every single one, and hid them where only I can find them. I love being able to play whenever I feel like playing.
I have learned a lot of fun things from Reba and Cedar. Reba taught me to look out the living room window when my foster mom is driving away, or coming back home. I left a few nose-prints on the window, but Reba told me that was o.k. Cedar taught me that my mom's craft supplies are really fun to play with. I especially like spools of thread or yarn. They are really fun to unwind. Cedar also taught me that whenever my mom goes to the Farmers Market, I should keep an eye on the bags, and be stealth like a ninja. Cedar told me that the fresher fruits and vegetables are super-yummy, so today, when no one was looking, I took a pink lady apple out of the bag. It was so delicious!
I really like other greyhounds, and have very good house manners, other than the occasional piece of fruit or vegetable. I know where I am supposed to go potty, and I never have accidents.
I am currently trying to get over a corn that is growing in my pad. It doesn't stop me from playing or running around, though. My foster mom is taking good care of me, with a special herbal salve, and baby socks. She always tries to match my one sock to my outfit, so I will still be fashionable.


Katie is very sweet and wants to be with her people; she will follow you around the house. It would be good if she were in a household where the adopters were not gone extended periods of time. She gets a bit anxious when left alone but calms down after awhile. She is totally okay with the cat. Katie loves walks and going places. A nice long walk is a must for her. She has a lot of energy and likes to play with toys. All the stuffies are scattered throughout the house. She is a good eater and takes snacks gently. Katie settles nice for the night and sleeps through until morning but once your feet hit the rug, she is ready to get going. She is good with the other greyhounds. She begs for pets; even roaching so she gets tummy rubs. She is smart, comes when called and knows the word "down". There are a few housebreaking issues but we think it is because she is new to the household.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Katie, 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.
