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

Hello Quatro!

After a short hound hiatus, we're back, and we've engineered a trade!  In NFL parlance (and in honor of the upcoming NFL draft), Quatro was traded for 2 first round picks and a hound to be named later :-) You know how it is, the star player with an expiring contract and lots of competition for the job decides he has an itch that can't quite be scratched in his current clubhouse and demands a huge salary increase or a trade elsewhere... So after approval from the league office, we've made a trade with Halfway Home Hounds for the irrepressible Quatro! Here he is lounging in his new clubhouse:

  Ahhhh... the pampered life of a superstar athlete.

All kidding aside, Quatro really is a superstar dog. He's super friendly, super easy-going, and is a real love bug. Seriously, he's one of the most engaging hounds we've had the pleasure to come across in our long time being around these great dogs. He wants nothing more than hang out with his people - be that on the couch with you while watching TV or sleeping with you in bed, if you'll let him. Quatro listens really well, is totally housebroken, loves to go for walks on the leash, amuses himself (and you) while playing with stuffies and other toys. Quatro would be great as a running companion. I've jogged with him on the leash and he had no issues during a 2 mile run. So if you're wondering why a great dog like this remains un-adopted, well, sometimes even the best players go through slumps where things just don't seem to go their way no matter how hard they try. Quatro has simply had some bad luck and the stars have not been willing to align themselves for him. We're trying to change that and kick those stars back into alignment on his behalf.
Quatro's need are simple - he needs to find a forever-home that has another canine companion to hang out with, or a forever-home where a member of the family is home with him most of the time. Quatro tends to get vocal when left alone with no one to pal around with, so he can't really be placed where he'll be home alone all day. Also, and this is very important: Quatro cannot go to a home with small animals! He is simply not small-animal safe! If you can meet those requirements and would like to welcome a greyt, greyt hound into your home, give Denise a shout and make arrangements to meet this very happy, very friendly hound. If you can give give him the superstar treatment in your clubhouse, we'll give him his unconditional release - no trades, no draft picks, no players to be named later :-)

Good luck with Quatro! I've been following his story for a while. I am a foster mom too (Tartan and Bella this year) and just can't believe no one snatched him up!
