 Our Special Needs Greyhound, Dingo, has a Forever Home! Lucas and Karen, our long time members and foster family decided that they needed to add a new member to their family and a new "brother" for Mia. They met Dingo when he first arrived from FL and were instantly in love with him. At the time, Dingo went to another foster family to complete recovery of his broken leg.  With the discovery of Dingo's epilepsy, healed broken leg, and Panus (an auto-immune eye disease), Dingo needed several months to recover and get back on track. Even though Dingo had all these issues, Lucas and Karen researched all of it and told BRGA whenever he is ready to go "home" they would love to care for him!  That day arrived on March 31!  Dingo greeted everyone with kisses and even cozied up to their other Grey, Mia.  A SPECIAL CONGRATULATIONS to the entire family for adopting Dingo and giving him a wonderful and happy retirement!

 A gorgeous brindle boy named Oliver was the 5th greyhound on the Alabama haul and was the only one that we received who wasn't black....but we hear that the other greys didn't mind!    All Oliver knew was he was getting a mom, a dad and a big sister (who just happened to be a grey too).   He wanted his own family and he couldn't wait to meet them all...he hoped that his big sister liked him!  Jo and Matt lost their male grey unexpectedly a couple of months ago and they missed having a boy around.   Tasha was missing her brother so the family decided they couldn't wait.......they had room in their hearts and they needed to fill it.       We've been told that everyone is settling in nicely and their family is complete.
