Scooby's Info...

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

Scooby's Story...
Scooby is a 4 1/2 year old red fawn male, who just retired from a moderate racing career. He's an outgoing boy, who loves his toys. Scooby's is fostering with a cat and doing fine. He's OK with small dogs, too.

I’m a big, red boy called Scooby. I like people, get along with my kennel mates, but I’d rather be curled up on your couch with you watching Sunday night football. Don’t worry; your couch will be safe from mounds of fur ‘cos greyhounds shed very little. Be warned, I will get excited when someone scores a touchdown, and I may jump on and off the couch a few times. For sure, I’ll be ROOing up a storm!


48 Hours: I'm two days into my intensive, how-to-be-a-pet training. I had no idea there would be tests!

Seems like every few minutes they want me to try something new. So far, I like squeaky toys, chasing a ball, riding in the car, my greyhound foster brother, my funny looking non-greyhound foster sisters, the cat (truth is I'm kind of apathetic about the cat, but my foster parents REALLY want me to like her, so I'm going along with it), a little terrier neighbor dog, overnight visitors, Cub Scouts selling popcorn, coyotes right on the other side of the fence howling their coyotes heads off, lawn mowers, splashing swimmers, walks, and people...especially people.

I think they have concluded nothing bothers me, and are finally going to let me rest.

Oh, I almost forgot. I DON'T like swimming. Story for another day.. Scooby has an adoption pending.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Scooby, 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.
