Neptune – #693190 – 1 Year Old – Lab/Shepherd Mix – Male
Just the thought of a home is enough to make Neptune grin from ear-to-ear. This sweet pup was found several weeks ago near campus in need of help and a new beginning. Although he left the UA, Neptune is continuing his education in Canine College at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona. Working daily with his personal trainers, Neptune is well on his way to mastering sit, down, stay, heel, stop, name recognition and how to be the best dog he can be. This attentive and brilliant boy should be at the top of his class in no time! Now all Neptune needs is a person, couple or family who will appreciate the companionship of a devoted dog for many years to come. If you could be the kindhearted companion Neptune has been dreaming of, please visit this high achieving, hug–retrieving dog today at the Humane Society.
This seems to be a major year for greyhound rebounds. When you adopt a greyhound, people must sign a contract saying if they can no longer care for the dog, the hound must be returned to the group. Adopters return dogs because of ill health, old age, and financial reasons.
Arizona Greyhound Rescue has had a significant influx as previously posted here for Clementine and Ozzy.
Greyhound Adoption League (GAL) is in the same predicament. They now have just taken back a matched pair, Spencer (left) and Simone (right). Spencer is 9 years old and Simone is 6 years old. They are looking for a foster home (although a forever home would be even better). These two long-time companions, like Clemmie and Ozzy, must go home together. All the rebounded greyhounds are calm, happy, and love to cuddle.
Currently GAL’s website is offline because of a technical hiccup. If you are interested in foster care or adopting Spencer or Simone, please email email@example.com and I will put you in contact with a GAL representative. Please put GAL in the subject line. Thank you.
