Herbie's Info...

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

Herbie's Story...
Herbie is 2 and 1/2 and retired after 10 races. He is new to the kennel and will be available soon. Herbie appears to do with small dogs and cats.


Herbie is a young handsome black male. He is friendly to all and passed cat testing. He eats well (fed twice a day). He is initially a tad shy but warms up quickly. He has not been around kids or babies. He does well with men and women. He walks beautifully on a lead--no pulling. He is not crated and does not care for it. He is housetrained to a doggie door. There has been no thunder or loud noises but he remains lying down as I vacuum around him. He rides very nicely in the car. I work full time and he has had no separation issues but I do have nine dogs so he is not alone. He is young and does like to play with my 2yr old dingo and 1yr greyhound. He would do well in a home with another young dog. My guess is that he would also do well with kids. He is a very loving, good -natured, non-alpha guy but he is young, so does like to play. He has not been destructive at all but does enjoy a good counter surfing! This has decreased greatly as he is learning the house rules. Just an excellent dog.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Herbie, 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.
