In response to recent requests and an ever-growing need, GPA/Tampa Bay has added this feature to our site. Our “Hounds of the (GPA) Black Brigade” features our black greyhounds.

As some of you may know, universally, black dogs are a bit harder to place than other colors. Greyhounds are no exception. There has always been somewhat of a stigma associated with black animals (most notable is the black cat at Halloween.) On the other hand, there are many who adore and celebrate the black hounds, and we are here to appreciate that fact along with you! It is our intention to showcase our awesome black dogs and devote this section of our site to them. They are just as friendly, loving, and awesome as all greyhounds of other colors!

Size: Sm/Avg

Emma
Bio: Emma is a beautifully marked girl with a sweet, even-keeled personality. She gets along well with our other greys, and is very eager to learn what you expect of her. She's adjusted to her new retirement routine quite nicely, and accepts new situations with no fuss (though she's not too sure what good purpose that thing we humans call a "camera" has, lol.) She's a sweetheart of a girl, and we'll have more details on her soon.

Lazlo
Male
Size: Avg/Lg
(Available)
Lazlo
Bio: Lazlo is a handsome, raven coated boy with a happy and sweet demeanor. He very much enjoys learning about new things, thus experiences change with a good attitude, and isn't fearful of his environment at all. He's very outgoing and social. He doesn't prefer to share his food or toys, so he'd do well in a home with less "little-human" playthings like dolls or fluffy items which tend to lie around on the floor. He'd love to interact with older kids and adults, and would likely do well in a home with a fenced yard for some supervised playtime. We'll have more on this great natured, enjoyable boy as he continues to settle in.

Pops
Bio: Pops is a very sweet souled boy. He's more quiet, and a bit shy. He would do very will with a home with a fenced yard, and likely with other dogs. We'll have more on him once he's settled in.

Rick
Male
Size: Avg/Lg
(Available)
Rick
Bio: Rick is a fun yet loving guy that can run like the wind and play happily, but then quickly become a calm, laid back and loving boy. Because he does enjoy a good run on occasion, he may thrive in a home with a fenced yard. Otherwise, expect to see this gorgeous grey on his back enjoying tummy scratches from you. He's an overall fun, well adjusted boy that will make a greyt 4-legged companion!
