Max's Info...

Max's Story...
Max is a 4 year black male, recenlty retired from a long racing career. He is not tolerant of small dogs or cats.


Any animal other than a greyhound is a challenge for Max. He is apprehensive and reactive if another dog breed gets too close. On the other hand, he loves people of all types, including children. Although he has not been around very small children or babies, he would probably do well.

Max is a very confident dog and shows no fear of anything inanimate, but large dogs do frighten him. He is not tolerant of small dogs or cats. Max can get a little boisterous at time and loves to runs. He still takes running with other hounds very seriously and is competitive.

Max is house-trained without a dog door. He can be left for 3 or 4 hours without any incident. Although , he likes to follow us around, there are no signs of destruction when left alone.

Max loves to go walking and has stopped pulling since being put on a halti collar. He likes car rides, too.

Max has adjusted well. He is very affectionate, and loves to be with his people. He’s smart and I believe an adopter could teach him anything they wanted him to do. Oh, this dog is very lovable. He puts his head and neck in my lap and wants to stay there. If he were allowed to climb on furniture, he would curl right up beside me and be so content. He’s soft and very in tune with his people. A reprimand need only be soft and short, and he’s got it.

Max would be happy in a home by himself or with other greys -- definitely no other breeds of dog or cats, rabbits, or other critters. If someone were home most of the time, that would be ideal but I don’t think essential. He will be happy with people who will walk with him every day, and have a home that has lots of toys and a soft bed.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Max, 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.
