    Just cave already Rose. He is much too handsome to pass along. Somebody adopt him quick before I do.

  7. He is a sweet loving beauty.

    This possibly is the most laid back dog I have ever met. He takes in every new thing just like he has always been doing them. Again pictures do not do justice as he is super handsome. Somebody help Rose out or she is going to fail fostering again! Be strong Rose!

    Hello. My husband and I have been considering adopting a greyhound for awhile. Penguin is absolutely beautiful. We have two Italian Greyhounds and I love that Penguin is so comfortable with change and laid back. I would love the opportunity to speak with you more.

  10. penguin is very sweet. rose keep up the good work. i am looking for him a home too, and correct real men wear pink

    Where or where is a forever home for Penguin. He is so pretty and such a sweet boy. I thought he would be the first one gone and he is still here. Just because he does not like cats does not mean he is not a nice boy. Lots of people don’t like cats, right Penguin? Just a sweetheart otherwise! Easy going boy!

  12. Poor Penguin needs a home for Christmas! He came to us in March and is still looking for his forever home

  13. I’d love to be able to give Penguin a home this Christmas, but I don’t know if my brother’s dog would get along with him. Is there anything I can do to help find a home for him and/or learn more about taking care of a greyhound? I’d like to be able to adopt one in the near future when I move out of my parent’s house.

  14. I’m looking to adopt and will be at the meet and greet on Sunday. I’m willing to adopt seniors and even special needs dogs. Can someone fill me in on penguin ? Why such a long foster placement ?
    He looks so handsome and loving

  15. We have had Penguin for a while because he turned out not to be cat safe. Not cat safe dogs are harder to place because most people have cats or small dogs. He is a great dog!!
    His foster mom will be giving you a call

  16. I was sad to see that Penguin is still there. He was my first choice but Jackpot decided that we were to be his parents instead.

    We have had discussions about getting another dog but since we go away for the winter transporting two greyhounds would be difficult.

    We will continue to think about it and if we decide and if Penguin is still available, we’ll look at him again. Cat safeness is not an issue for us.

    We applied to adopt a greyhound from you guys but someone else adopted her before we did. We think that Penguin is too cute and would love to meet with you to see if he likes us. Would you please email me to set up a time to meet?
    Thank you,
