A Poem Written By The Boys.

I may be a boy,
I may be larger than my fellow kennel mates,
I may not be perfect,
I may not be blue, white, fawn or brindle,
BUT…..
I know how to lean and give you those big puppy eyes,
I love to please you,
I’m trying my very best,
I can still have fun and lots of it!
I’m being very patient waiting and waiting,
All I want is my own family.

Have you thought about giving one of our male greyhounds a home?  Please have a look at our Greyhounds Needing a Home page and see which greyhound is for you.
