Turbo's Info...

I am purebred.

Turbo's Story...
Although "Turbo" is derived from Latin meaning whirlwind, this Turbo is anything but a whirlwind. He is a one mellow fellow. Turbo had a long
racing career, completing 174 races and retiring with a Grade A rating – certainly deserving the mellow retirement he is keen to enjoy!

A champion at relaxing, Turbo crates beautifully and on his 3rd day in retirement has roached in his crate (i.e., laying on his back with legs in the air....a sign of pure contentment). He is quiet in his crate, sleeps through the night, eats his meals completely and has had no accidents.

An apt pupil, Turbo is still learning stairs....he needs help going up and handles going down better. He has enjoyed his bath, ear cleaning and teeth brushing without any resistance. In the house, Turbo has not been frightened by the vacuum cleaner, dishwasher, or other loud noises in a house. In the car, Turbo lay quietly in his portable crate as he traveled down the road. On daily walks, Turbo walks beside his Foster Mom with the occasional correction to not weave or walk too fast. He relieves himself within 5-10 mins. While out on walks, Turbo has met adults and children, and has been calm. He has demonstrated interest in other dogs but more as a curiosity rather than prey drive. Passing cars and school buses have not startled Turbo. Turbo is looking for a 4-ever home where he can blossom more fully into the sweet, mellow guy he naturally is. Apply today for your chance to adopt him – and meet him at an upcoming Open House!

Turbo enters our foster program 09/21 and will be available for meeting 09/28.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Turbo, a Spencerville Greyhound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Greyhound for sale in Spencerville, or seeking a Greyhound dog from a breeder in Spencerville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Spencerville 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 Spencerville 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 Spencerville paves the way for another one to be saved.
