Sylvester's Story...
Sylvester Stallone he isn’t! Nor is he the prey-driven Sylvester of cartoon fame. This beautiful white, dark- brindle spotted boy is tolerant of all living creatures and approaches his new experiences with a quiet and thoughtful manner. He accepts all the new challenges of his new retired role with a calm curiosity and only a few reservations. The concept of squeaky toys and romping requires a little more study! But he’s working on it. He has already conquered stairs, both inside and outside. The resident cat inspected him on his first day and has decided that he’s an exceptional companion who has no problem with a feline wandering in, around, and through his long legs. He’s still not sure about this custom of treats but has no problem consuming his regular meals with gusto. His crate is his comfort zone and he enters and exits with poise and grace. Walking with Sylvester is a true joy! He stays right by the side of his person, looking around but only moving away to take care of necessary business, then right back to the “heel” position, despite other animal or human distractions. He always looks for guidance before undertaking any unexpected action and he loves to gracefully recline on any available dog bed, quietly naps when nothing else is required of him. Nights are a quiet and peaceful time to prepare for the new adventures of the coming day. A home with Sylvester would be full of affection and quiet companionship. What more could you ask for?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sylvester, 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.
