Quatro wants a home

Quatro has been cooling his jets at the Hound Hotel for several weeks now. He is an extremely well behaved dog and we are having no issues with him. He has even learned not to get on the bed at night, much to our relief! He is fully housetrained and ready for his new home. Quatro is an extremely affectionate hound who loves to be petted all the time. He likes attention and he is pretty insistant on getting it. He is definitely not a shrinking violet at all. He loves running in the yard with our dogs and puts on quite a show. He does need to be placed with another dog so he can have a buddy and he is not cat safe. If you would like to meet Quatro, please contact Denise Davis. Here is a video of Quatro and our dog Abe running in the yard.

Quatro-Day at the Spa

Quatro has learned that the Hound Hotel has a lot of amenities, besides just a nice yard and good food. He found the spa menu today and ordered up some services. He started the afternoon with a pedicure and a facial, followed by a massage and some time in the sauna. He wants to make sure that he looks good for his future family. Our new boy Abe joined him at the spa...who says spas are just for the ladies? Now both the boys are just relaxing and taking it all in, as shown by the photos. But seriously, Quatro is a terrific dog. He is a super friendly, tail wagging kind of guy who loves lots of pets and is a lot of fun to have around the house. He also seems to be a bit of a watchdog too. If a stick so much as breaks outside our house, Quatro is on duty checking it out and making his presence known. That is not a bad thing at all. Our neighbors with their three year old son came over the other day and Quatro was a hit with their son. He was really friendly with him and very respectful of him. Quatro should be excellent with children. If you would like to meet this fun boy, please contact Denise Davis at Greyhound Rescue.

Complete Mayhem!

It is complete mayhem at the Hound Hotel tonight, as it is every night. With three resident hounds, all former track dogs, and one foster dog, himself a former track dog, it is obvious that it must be crazy here. With all these hyperactive, crazy greyhounds, who could stand to live here? I really don't know how we do it. We don't get a minutes rest. The dogs are swinging from the rafters, and doing all kinds of crazy things. I think we may have to go hide under the bed and just surrender to the hounds. Maybe we neet a cat or something more sedate. These greyhounds are just too much! We are just trying to have a quiet evening watching the football playoffs, and just look at what we have to put up with! Just watch the video to see what mayhem goes on here! If you would like to meet Quatro, please contact Denise Davis

Quatro-Part Deux!

Quatro is back at the Hound Hotel. Quatro was doing well with the humans in his adoptive family but not so well with the cat. It looks like Quatro needs to be with a family that does not have a cat or other very small animals. His family gave it their best try but it was clear that it wasn't the best situation for Quatro. Quatro will cool his heels at our house until we find a situation that will work better for him. He also needs a buddy at home, whether it is a greyhound or some other breed of dog. Quatro isn't cut out for being an only dog. He is much too friendly and gets pretty lonely and upset if he is left by himself. Quatro is a super friendly greyhound that loves all kinds of attention. He will be terrific for meet and greets, family walks, or whever you would like to go with him. Hikes in the mountains? Count Quatro in. Walks in the park? Count him in. Lazy Sundays watching football? Count him in for that too. If you would like to meet Quatro, please contact Denise Davis at Greyhound Rescue Inc.
