Natty Boh is a Klepto!

Natty Boh, or Natalie, has graduated to that point that she is beginning to steal things around the house. That means that she is getting more comfortable as a retired hound and is becoming more curious. That is a good sign and is perfectly normal. She will grow out of that after a few weeks and realize that her dog toys are better than other things. She has learned a lot about being a retired hound, and seems to like it a lot. She has learned the daily routine and is no trouble to have around the house. She still isn't fully housetrained yet, but we are working on that. It usually takes a little time with a dog so young. The very young ones can be a little stubborn at first, but they eventually get the idea. It is all part of the learning process. Natalie is a good one and some family is going to be very lucky to get her. We also learned yesterday that she smiles. She got a little excited and flashed a smile at us. We broke out laughing when she did that. She has quite a fun personality on her and is a lot of fun to play with. If you would like to meet Natty Boh, please contact Denise Davis at Greyhound Rescue.

Natalie is learning the ropes

Natalie has been at the Hound Hotel for 4 days now and has learned a great deal. She has mastered the stairs and knows the daily routine already. She goes straight to her food bowl and eats all her food at mealtime. She likes to play in the yard and hang out on a soft doggie bed with the family in the evenings. Natalie is surprisingly calm for a dog as young as she is. We expect that they will be a little wild at first at that age straight off the track, but she has been very well behaved. That is not to say that she doesn't have any spunk to her, because she does. As she matures and gets more comfortable in her foster home, her personality will continue to come out. She is going to turn out to be a good one. She'll be great for walks and runs at the dog park, and she will be a terrific companion. We can't say for sure if she is cat safe. It is a little tough to determine that with her being so young and new to her situation. She does seem calm enough that with the proper training, she would probably be ok with a cat, but you never really know until the dog is around a real cat. She doesn't bother our parrot, which is a good sign though. If you would like to meet Natalie, please contact Denise Davis.

Welcome Natalie!

Natalie, or as we have already nicknamed her, Natty Boh, has arrived at the Hound Hotel. Natalie is a young one, having been born on July 1st, just two years ago. She is also a little one. She could almost fit in your pocket. She is a really friendly little girl that is already wagging her tail all the time. She is a very dark brindle, one of the most beautiful we have seen for a long time. We think she is going to be a really good dog. She has all the makings of a superstar dog. Being so young, she will need a little guidance, but other than that, she is good to go. We can't say too much about her now, as we just picked her up today, however we will provide updates on her in the coming days. For now, just enjoy her pictures. The pictures were taken when she laid down in a home for the very first time.

Patty Ann-Adopted!

Patty Ann found her forever home this weekend. A very nice family was looking for a mellow, well behaved and friendly greyhound. They came to look at Patty Ann and took her right away. That was easy. Patty Ann is a good place now and she will be able to live out her life as a happy girl. We couldn't be happier for her. We will miss her though. Happy trails Patty Ann! We'll see you again soon we hope.
