My story

Hi, I'm Atlas, and I'm a wadi dog!



My five siblings and I might be the first wadi dogs you've ever seen, so let me tell you all about us!



Wadi dogs like me are very smart. We're also loyal and loving. Just perfect companions, really! Wadi dogs descended from Salukis originally, and you can still see their influence in our sleek builds. We are smaller – sized for cuddling.



The six of us were born in Oman and rescued from the street by the lovely people of Muscat dog adoption. They really loved us, and when we were big enough we came here to Fast Friends in the US.



The trip over was scary, but I am adjusting well. I love playtime with my siblings and am learning that the staff and volunteers are very nice and give me lots of treats and gentle pets.



I think I am really going to like it here in the US, especially when I find a home of my very own.



* Fast Friends adopts in the New England area. If you are interested in Atlas or one of our other available dogs, please complete an adoption application at www.helpinggreyhounds.org/adopt-a-greyhound.



** Atlas is extremely timid and needs a very special home with an experienced owner who can be with her most of the time. She needs a quiet environment – Atlas would NOT do well in a city or on a busy street – with one of her siblings or another confident dog. Atlas' adopter must have a securely fenced yard.

Why adoption is a great option

Atlas, a Swanzey Mixed Breed (Medium) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Mixed Breed (Medium) for sale in Swanzey, or seeking a Mixed Breed (Medium) dog from a breeder in Swanzey.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Swanzey 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 Swanzey 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 Mixed Breed (Medium) breeders who help with Mixed Breed (Medium) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Swanzey paves the way for another one to be saved.
