There aren't enough nice things to say about Dena! She loves to cuddle, wag her tail and play. She is in no way an old dog. At a meet and greet we were asked numerous times if she was 2 or 3 years old.
I'll let Dena tell you about herself!
Hi! My name is Dena’s Diamond, or just Dena for short.
Allow me to tell you a little bit about myself. Let’s see, where to begin. On March 10, I will turn 9. I may be mature in age, but young at heart. I consider myself a happy and friendly girl who loves attention, and I am not shy about asking for it.
A short time ago, I did have some dental work done and had many teeth extracted. Don’t worry, I am healing up well and it does not even bother me; I am just as sweet and pretty as ever.
Even though I have never lived with cats, I have realized I do not mind them too much. I do enjoy associating with other greyhounds, but I can become a bit cranky with other breeds especially if they are too pushy.
You are probably wondering how I ended up in Washington. Well, my career started off in Florida and I was rather successful. For a change of pace, I then relocated to West Virginia for a spell. I retired a few years back, had a small family, and now decided it was time to travel and see the sites. I met a nice lady named Heather, who invited me to stay with her for awhile in Colorado, while I contemplated my next big adventure. Recently, she told me that she was about to travel up to Washington State. I told her I have never been there before. Heather said it is a beautiful state with a lot of friendly people who love to adopt greyhounds and have them become a part of their family. I thought that sounded just perfect! So she gave me a ride and now I am here looking for my new family!
You know the saying Diamonds are a girls best friend? Well, that may be for gems, but this Diamond wants a best friend who will give me a loving home! Perhaps, my forever home is with you?
Foster Home Update:
Dena is an easy-going, happy and funny girl. No accidents in the house. Our cats have pretty much been in hiding since her arrival; her one chance encounter seemed to scare her. We have chickens (double fenced in our backyard) that she could care less about either.
She likes her crate and will retreat there for naps. She sleeps there at night, though I leave the door open. She seems to enjoy short daily walks. She hasn't met any other dogs so far, except for seeing from a distance. She eats well and always seems to be hungry. She knows her name, and "go potty" and "go lay down".
She doesn't care for car rides but we’re working on it by taking short trips. She has a lovely singing voice (when sirens go off), but is otherwise quiet.
She is an easy sweet friendly girl. Loves belly rubs!
