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

Sam's here!

Yep, we've got another handsome black hound to place in a forever home!
This is Sam. He's 3-yrs-old and is sweet and smart. Sam gets along well with other dogs of all sizes. He spent his inaugural weekend with us in the company of Radio, the resident hound, a Jack Russell terrier we were dog-sitting, and my brother-in-law's mixed breed. Sam did fine with all three. Sam has rapidly taken to foster living. House training is going well and he's transitioning nicely into the daily routine. Sam should get along well in most environments, either as part of a pack or as an only dog. Sam does well in the kennel and he's just about ready to have the run of the house while we're out. 

Sam walks pretty well on the leash and while we haven't attempted steps yet, we doubt they'll be an issue. We don't know if he's cat-safe yet, but he has gone after a few rabbits and squirrels in the back yard so we are leaning towards not cat-safe, but nothing's set in stone. Sam's only bad habit so far is some occasional counter-surfing. We're working on that and it shouldn't be an issue.

Those are just some quick impressions and as always, if you'd like to see Sam, please give Denise a shout and we'll get the ball rolling. He's a handsome fella with a nice disposition and is in pretty good shape for a hound just off the track. Oh, he's about 70lbs for those wondering.
