Thinking About Adopting a Greyhound? PDF Print E-mail
Adopting a Greyhound is a long-term commitment... ten or more wonderful years! Before filling out an application, please take time to seriously think over your decision. We are looking for adopters who will take these beautiful dogs into their homes as a permanent member of their family. Life changes do occur that are unforeseen at the time of adoption, and all too often, the dogs are returned as a result. However, you should consider that your Greyhound, as a member of your family, will always be included in whatever life adjustments are necessary.

In addition, it is possible that your Greyhound may get sick or have behavioral issues that you must deal with. This is part of your commitment as an adopter. Your dog is your priority. We know that in some situations, it is absolutely in the best interest of all to return the dog to the adoption group to be re-homed. You must understand, however, that as adaptable as Greyhounds are, it is very hard on them to be removed from their home and family after several months or years and made to readjust to a new living situation. If after careful consideration you decide to adopt a Greyhound, know that you are giving yourself and your new Greyhound the chance of having a long and happy relationship.

Cash PDF Print E-mail

Cash is still a youngster at 1.5 years old.  He is a beautiful red color.  His racing name is Coyote Cash.

68 compact pounds of constantly talking, dark red, curiosity, that is Coyote
Cash.  It is hard to catch him being still and far enough away to photograph. 
In the house, He listens well, and comes when called, he is always ready to go
for a walk.  Outside, he is curious and willing to leave his scent on
everything!  He settles down quickly, is a good walker, and is learning to walk
under leashes rather than through or over them.

Cash independently hops in his kennel when it is time to eat.  He thinks meal
time is the best, and treats are fabulous. 

Cash is the most vocal greyhound I have ever fostered.  He whines, whimpers,
snorts, howls, yodels, and even barks!  Most of his vocalizations are in
response to environmental stimuli, and to communicate a need or want, and some
are to alert everyone to an unfamiliar or novel sound.  Cash will look you in
the eye when he vocalizes, and he has walked across the room to talk to one of
the resident hounds. 

In the morning, when I have to leave, after being put in his kennel, he
vocalizes,  he can make some very sad mournful sounds!  However,  he settles
down pretty quickly if ignored. About 5 minutes later, I leave when he is quiet. 
Granted he has only been here for a few days, but he has not had an accident in
his kennel, and he has had some long days in his kennel. 

Coyote Cash is a sweet pup looking for a responsible, loving home to call his
own.  He will provide lots of love, and, I predict, quite a few chuckles to some
lucky adopter.

Call if you are interested
Cash says, "Call me we can talk."

Syler PDF Print E-mail

Sy coming soon to NLGA!

Syler is a very lovable and beautiful BIG GUY! He is very cat safe and child safe. When taken for walks, the children in the neighborhood come running. They call him a "pony". Sy is often confused as being a Great Dane!  He loves his long walks! He is confident to be an only dog, but would welcome a buddy. He also gets along with other breeds, but not too fond of very small dogs. They make him nervous.
Most important about Sy is he is very affectionate. He loves being loved on. Just a great dog!
Syler is 8 years old.
