Music City Greyhound Adoption
I am a mother of three grown two-legged children, and now my husband and I have three retired racing greyhounds, Chop Suey, Ritter and Zeiss. We adopted our first greyhound, Chad, in 2011. We immediately fell in love with this amazing breed and wanted to do more to help spread the word on greyhound adoption. We had never seen a greyhound in person until we came across a group holding a "Meet & Greet" at a local pet store. It was love at first sight! I now coordinate the many Meet & Greets around the Nashville area so we can share that love with others while on our mission to find the right home for as many retired racing greyhounds as possible.
I have been working with greyhound rescue for ten years. I lived in Florida in my younger days and my sister raised three litters of racing greys in the 1970's. That was my first experience with the breed. I never owned my own greyhound until I moved to Tennessee. I have a fondness for the old brood girls and the special needs ones. I love to work with the shy dogs and the "project" dogs (dogs that need some special TLC). I have a house full of special needs "kids". I also dogsit and have had up to 12 dogs in the house with me at a time - the more the merrier!
I am a US Army Retired First Sergeant and adopted my first greyhound in 2007. It was love at first sight and currently I have three retired racers that have raced into my heart. Keeping the military tradition, my greyhounds are known as “the Grey Berets”. I am deeply committed in finding the right forever homes for our retired racing greyhounds. I am involved in Meet & Greets, Home Visits, MCGA Prison Program, Greyhound Events, Nursing Home/Rehab visits with my Grey Berets and recently completed the Canine Good Citizen Course and Pet Partners’ Therapy Training with my 4 year old Retired Racer “Petey”. I am now a certified handler and “Petey” is a Certified Therapy Dog. I am proud to promote Greyhound Adoption/Awareness as “There is nothing like the love of a Greyhound”.
