If you have interest in adopting a greyhound, complete our online adoption application. Even if the dog has an application pending, things can always change. There is no obligation by completing the adoption application, but it lets us know you are interested so we can work to match the right dog with the right home.

Shelli is adorable, sweet, playful, and beautiful to boot! She's small animal safe, and was fostered so she has some house manners already.

Sooner is a big beefy boy, with a gorgeous black face and mostly white body with a bit of ticking and a few black spots. He's sweet, happy, and gets along with everyone. He is small animal safe.

Karney is a red fawn with black points, and she is so pretty... she sits all by herself. She is a bit shy to the touch right now, but is approachable and readily falls in behind you... she'll come out of this cautiousness very quickly. Another adorable little girl!

Bella is a very cute, petite, playful girl. She has been in a foster home in Florida and so she's already got some house manners. She is small animal safe, and just as adorable as they come.

Digger is being a bit skittish so far; that could just be trauma from the change, or he could be on the cowardly side, we're not sure just yet. He's approachable though and so we believe he'll work his way out of this with some patience. He wasn't interested in the cat. Update: Digger is getting better with touch and approaching... he's going to take some patience. He likes the other dogs but we're finding him to be pushy, so we think he could be an only dog but definitely will need some patience with his personality of being afraid. He'll need a quiet home and walks with a harness; a fenced yard would work once he's bonded. You won't catch him otherwise.

We dare you to try to tell Louie from Solomon! These brothers are basically twins! Louie, like Solomon, is happy, playful and just a baby! Louie turned away from the cat, so we're saying he's probably going to be cat-safe.

Alpha is a young, active boy. He was placed (his name was previously Prune) but was returned because of his inability to safely accept the small dogs in the home. He is a graduate of our prison obedience program, so he is well behaved, walks well on a leash, is completely house broken and is very sweet and loving. He can be protective of his space and/or toys, so will need a leader to help him understand boundaries. He's a wonderful boy.

Payton is a 3-year-old male. Even though he tested cat safe in Florida, he has shown some real issues with small dogs here in the kennel. He is very reactive, but we don't know if it's about the fence and he just wants to play, or if he really doesn't like small animals. Payton probably would be best as an only dog or with other female greyhounds. Doesn't seem to like getting along with the boys much... he is a really nice boy and would love being a spoiled only child! Update: Payton does great with other greyhounds; he's playful and will settle in, but he also has some resource guarding issues that will need to be worked on (we can help with that). He likes the other dogs, and we do think he will work his way out of his space issues, but it just has to be a consideration going into it.

Mars doesn't like cats but he potties on lead, so that's something! He's a gorgeous, big brindle boy and we'll let you know how he does as time goes on... Update: Mars is doing well in the prison obedience program. He isn't really into the pack thing; he loves his people, other male dogs, not so much. He will be able to be with other females however. But he's a really nice boy and will do great as an only dog or in a small pack. He will be available in two weeks.

Mr. Carl is not fond of cats, but otherwise, he's a sweet, handsome boy. He is 4 years old... more updates to come. Update: Carl loves everyone and gets along well with all other dogs in the kennel pack. We have decided to place him in the prison program for some obedience training, so he will be available for adoption mid-May. He's going to be fantastic!


Luke

Luke is about 2 and a half years old now; He is sweet and loving and likes other dogs and kids, although he tends to play rough. He would be great as an only dog, as long as he can get some play time with a ball or toy. Luke graduated from our prison foster/training program and was placed twice, but returned because of his "special" needs. Luke had a serious medical problem when he came to us but it has resolved after surgery. He does have some residual nerve issues and we think has arrested development (this means he'll forever be puppy-like). Please ask for more information about this and know that Nittany will support any adopter with his medical care going forward. Luke's ideal situation will be as an only dog in a very quiet household. He walks well on a leash and is independent and sweet. Ask about him and see if yours is just the right place for this special needs guy.
