Rourke (Guiness)'s Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Rourke (Guiness)'s Story...
Roukre (Guinness) is a 2 year old blue birndle boy who has no recorded races. He appears to do fine with cats and small dogs. Rourke is an extremely shy dog, who will need some time in foster to begin to get comfortable being an adored pet. He will need to be with experienced adopters, who can be very patient with him while his true personality blossoms. Rourke will do better with children who are older.

I have been living in foster care since April 2013. I took over the walk-in shower as my dog cave, but I've recently been evicted. I now have to venture into the rest of the house... I am still very shy. I really like playing with squeaky toys when no one else is watching. I still don't want to approach the people, but I don't mind when they pet my fur. I want to be part of a quiet family, but I will need lots of time and patience. I don't think I'd be comfortable without a doggie sibling.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rourke (Guiness), 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.
