Añejo Mockingbird

Used to be this place was mostly about music and pop culture, but it's slowly morphed into a launching pad for finding our foster greyhounds new homes. So be it. We love the hounds and are more than happy to use our modest little blog page to reach out and snag some attention for these greyt dogs... Oh, we'll still post the occasional odd music review or rant at the state of the Redskins from time to time, but they'll hafta take a back seat to the dogs 'til further notice

Kirby gets a mulligan

So here's Kirby. He got returned because he wasn't a good fit in his previous home. His former adopters completely misjudged his size and decided he was too big and rambunctious for their environment.
Kirby is a big old sweetheart with no issues whatsoever. He's not rambunctious at all despite what his former owners believed. He is super chill around the house. He loves attention and he is a serious leaner! He can be crated or left loose; he's been very well behaved in his short time here. He eats well, sleeps well, and gets along fine with our hound. He really, really likes stuffies and soft toys.
He's house-trained and listens well. He does need a little practice walking on the leash, as he tends to stray and veer but he's smart enough to figure it out with some repetition.
We haven't had him on steps yet but I'm not anticipating any issues there. He's not had any interactions with cats yet so I can't make a judgement on wether he's cat-safe or not.
Kirby is a handsome and sweet dog and should fit in immediately to almost any home.
If you'd like to see Kirby, give Denise a shout and she'll get the process started.

Video and update!

Just look at that cute girl having fun! Sally is such a sweetheart and it's a shame nobody has come to see her yet. This girl is fun, sweet, loving, and smart. She's housebroken, walks well on a leash and generally gets along well with other dogs. 
She is ready for her forever home and you shouldn't let her age get in the way. Yes, she's almost seven. Who cares? This cutie has a lot of love to give and you shouldn't deprive her of a chance to show it because she's a few years older than most of the hounds.
Sally will readily adapt into a household that currently have other hounds. She would be a perfect fit for someone looking to add another hound into their life with a minimum of fuss. Sally would be fine as an only hound if you're around more than you're away. She does love attention and does love to hang out with her human family members. One note: she is not cat safe!
You should come meet Sally ASAP if you're in the market for a very sweet hound. So give Denise a ring and she'll set something up.

This very pretty girl is Sally. She is almost 7yrs old and is a very sweet girl. Sally has a lovely personality and would be a fine addition to anyone looking to expand their hound pack. She would also make a fine companion as a single dog. She loves people and attention and she has gotten along well with the resident hound as well as other dogs who've come to visit. We're not recommending her to homes with cats as she has a high prey drive.
She walks well on the leash, listens well and is smart. If you've got some space in your house and your heart for an older girl please give Denise a shout and we'll set up a meeting.

Say hey to Will Silver!

 The handsome fawn hound you see is recent arrival, Will Silver. He just turned 4-yrs-old on New Year's day. Will is a large hound and will probably weigh 85/90lbs once he fills out. Will is smart, outgoing, and curious. He definitely likes to get into things and places to check things out!
 Will had a bad crash when he was on the track which resulted in some torn ligaments in his back left leg. The ligaments were deemed unrepairable so the leg was left to heal on its own. He has no issue using the leg, tho he occasionally picks it up while standing or skips using it momentarily. Again, he walks perfectly fine with all four legs and other than the occasional moment, it's not something that's all that noticable.
This boy has a wonderful personality and would be great in an active household. He likes and wants to do things. He's a little more active than most hounds and will need regular exercise and owners with a firm hand to keep his curiosity in check.
He gets along fine with our resident hound and should be fine with other dogs. He's not been cat-tested but assuming from the way he goes after squirrels and things, we're not recommending him for homes with felines.

If Will sounds like he'd be a good fit in your home, give Denise a shout and we'll make arrangements for a visit.

Here's Trooper!

The very skinny but very cute boy you see above is Trooper. Trooper is in need of some TLC, as he's underweight and a bit dinged up on a few places. After he regrows the hair on the back of his legs and eats his way into a few more pounds, all that'll be left are a few scars which we think gives him character.
Trooper is very sweet, but he's also on the shy side. He's not a spook by any means, but he's not confident about seeking out human contact yet. We've seen a change in his confidence over the few days he's been here and we're hoping to see improvement on a daily basis. As of now he would be a great fit in a home that already has a dog or two. He follows Radio, our resident hound, all over and takes his cues from him, as such he should transition nicely into any home with hounds in place.
Learning the ins and outs of home life has been going well - he has been out for some leashed walks although we haven't tackled steps with him yet.
We think Trooper will be one of those great, late bloomers that so many of the shy hounds turn put to be. And while we think he'd be better off in a home with other hounds as of now, that could change as he builds his confidence up.
If you think Trooper might fit in your plans, please give Denise a holler and we'll schedule a visit.

We all love Lucy

Lucy is a gorgeous 3-yr-old brindle girl who is confident and sure of herself. She's only been here a couple of days but she already has the run of the house. She's had no issues whatsoever with adjusting to house life.
Lucy has been eating and sleeping well and has already learned how to drag all the toys out of the basket and spread 'em all over the room!
She enjoys walks and will probably be an excellent jogging companion. Early indications are that she's probably not going to be cat-safe. She's had no issues getting along with Radio, the resident hound, so should be good to go in a household with other dogs.
We got her to do some outdoor concrete steps and she handled them with ease. House-training is going splendidly, she's very smart and adaptable so she'll be ready for her forever home in no time.
She's a fantastic hound, so give Denise a shout if you're interested in seeing her.
