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

Homer dressed up for the party!

 "What have these folks done to me?"
 "Hey brother, why do I have wear this ridiculous shirt while you are clothing-free and laughing silently at me? "
As you can see, Homer is a handsome hound no matter what the situation. If you've been thinking about adopting an energetic greyhound, Homer's your dog!

He's an awesome hound and if you lead an active lifestyle that includes time for a dog who loves to do things and loves to be around people, you should take the time to schedule a visit.

Homer part two

So Homer is back with us after a short stay with an adopter who wasn't prepared for the responsibility and time commitment of dog ownership.
Homer remains a sweet dog with a can-do attitude, who is very affectionate for his family members. Homer is a love bug and perhaps the biggest/strongest *leaner* we've ever fostered. He's housebroken, walks well on the leash and is ready for his forever home.
Homer would do best in an active home with plenty of attention and plenty of things to do. He's still got some puppy in him as he's only a year-and-a-half old, so he can get a bit rambunctious if he hasn't had enough exercise or attention. He isnt going to do well in any home where nobody's home all day. If you work extended hours or aren't home for long stretches at a time, you should look elsewhere.
Homer gets along fine with other dogs but we're not recommending him to homes with cats.
Homer likes walks and would probably make an excellent jogging companion.
If you think you'd be able to provide a home for this handsome and affectionate hound, give Denise a shout and she'll get something set up.

Here's Homer! And yes we're calling him that because he looks like a certain Simpsons character 😁 He's a beautiful, extra large (seriously, he's very tall) red fawn, who might be the most chill hound we have ever fostered. He is quiet and relaxed and is quite the love bug. He enjoys hanging out and being part of the family.
Homer walks well on the leash but he is a bit of a lollygagger, befitting his super relaxed personality. He does have a high prey drive in regard to rabbits, squirrels and kitties, so he's not suitable for houses with small, non-canine animals.
He gets along well with dogs of all sizes and could go into a home other hounds or be the only dog.
Homer is only a year and a half old and is just starting to show off his personality as he adjusts to home living. He's housebroken and eats (he does love to chow down!) well and sleeps well, too.
If you think this tall, handsome, and super chill hound is for you, give Denise a shout and have your paperwork ready because he won't be around long...

 Here's Gracie and she's as good as, wait for it, wait  for it, Gold!
Gracie is three-and-a-half years old and weighs about 65lbs. She is smart, cute, and very nice to be around.
She walks well on the leash, is house broken, and listens pretty well. This girl loves to eat and is very food oriented.
She's really starting to show off her personality the last few days and she has a marvelous one.
Gracie is not cat-safe and her prey drive is on the higher side. Those with small furry critters will have to look elsewhere, unfortunately.
That's a quick rundown on miss Gracie's qualities and if you're interested in meeting her, give Denise a holler and we'll set something up.

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.
