Don't let the name fool you, he's a bright-eyed sweet affectionate boy. At almost 4 years old, he is more calm and mature than some of his younger pals. Racing name O Ya RoughNReady. Delicate and friendly, Rough has been a runner-up several times but has not been "chosen" by his humans yet. Once he gets to know you, he enjoys walks and snuggles. This sweet boy has the most beautiful shiny black coat. Rough loves naps as much as he loves a gentle walk. No running for him, he's had surgery on a leg injury and that means no stairs as well. Leash walking only-- but that doesn't mean he enjoys life any less than any other grey. 80lbs, not cat friendly...

When I asked foster Lex Hickman if he could give me three words that come to mind when he thinks of Charley, he replied with a laugh, "I want him!"  If his situation were different, he would love to adopt Charley, but Lex is having some health issues that will, unfortunately, prevent that.  Charley urgently needs a forever home.   The first thing that struck me when meeting Charley was his coloring.  A gorgeous light fawn color that reminds me of a sugar cookie.   Lex says everywhere they go, people comment on how beautiful Charley is.  Born in April of 2017, Dutch Charley (his race name) is still very young.  His behavior in this foster home has been excellent overall.  Happy, outgoing, loving, fun.NEVER had an accident in the house. Asks to go outside by whimpering or barking once.  Sleeps through the night quietly up to 12 hours, and prefers to sleep on his own bed.  Not really interested in toys.LOVES to do zoomies in the backyard over and over.  Car rides are the highlight of his dayNever destroyed anything in the home, except for one incident with a paper towel roll. 🙂 The actual three words Lex gave me to describe Charley were confident, arrogant, and silly.  His impending blindness doesn't affect his ability to love or have a full life.  It does however cause some occasional anxiety and has some effect on his behavior, and there are certain requirements for his new home: At times he may panic and lash out when touched from behind if he doesn't know its coming.  Needs to have rugs on the floors to help him feel confident in moving from room to room.  He will try to take advantage of you, and may try some alpha behaviors and attitude.  But all that is needed is firm correction right away if he attempts to dominate, and he settles in to place.  He needs to be the only dog, no cats, no small children.  A fenced yard would be preferred, he needs his zoomies. Are you the special kind of person that has room in your heart to take in this dog who will be completely blind?  Charley has Progressive Retinal Atrophy.  His night sight is very bad right now, and over time he will lose all sight.  We know there are unique adopters out there that would love the opportunity to provide Charley with the loving home he needs. Can you help?  If you feel this could be a match, please contact Kay Fleming at adopt@gpawisconsin.org. A foster family that has taken care of Charley says: We had Charley for seven weeks. He LOVES going for walks and doing zoomies in the fenced in area. He will bark once to ask for out but is otherwise quiet. He has a hilarious dinner dance. Good sleeper and greets you with a waggy tail every morning. Crate habits are excellent and considers the crate his man cave. He did not like other dogs in his home space but got along very well with 3 other greys outdoors in the dog run. He enjoyed meeting people. He is a bouncy, happy dog with a lot of energy!

This young girl is very reserved, but is learning to come out of her shell at a foster home. She doesn't lead well because of her shyness, she stands frozen. Her foster home has been using a harness and collar. So, she should have a quiet neighborhood, quiet family, a fenced yard and a greyhound buddy to help her feel more comfortable. If anyone has ever thought of helping a shy dog transition, has lots of patience and love, this is your new greyhound. GPA volunteers and staff will help whoever might want to take on this rewarding challenge. She's beautiful outside and inside, just needs extra time and love to learn her new life. She is just stuck in what she knows, which was being a member of her racing family. Small-- 64lbs Race Name Sadie Hawkins. Only 1 year 3 mos old

Salem is a tall, sleek, beautiful dog who is young and strong-willed. Loves to lean, explore, and play. Sings some beautiful songs! Very vocal. His forever home should have a fenced yard for him to get some of his energy out daily. The family or person adopting Salem should be a strong alpha leader who will reinforce what he is learning at his foster home-- that he is not in charge and he must listen and obey. Not a good fit with young children, he seems fine with cats, and he is just fine with his foster sister, a 7 year old yellow lab. Other dogs are on a case by case basis. Racing Name-- KW Salem Smokes Weight 84 lbs
