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!

Cosco
Male
Size: Avg
(Available)
Cosco
Bio: Cosco is a younger, cute boy with a great personality. He enjoys stuffed animals, and especially likes a home with at least one other dog for company. He also enjoys exploring his environment, as any youngster would. Cosco is an overall very good natured grey, and will do well as a four legged companion.

Dario
Male

(Available)
Dario
Bio: Dario is a WONDERFUL boy! He's very sweet and interactive with his humans, and is on the calmer side of the spectrum. Yet, he does enjoy some playtime with you as well. He's pretty much the perfect combination of love and play. He's settled in nicely to his new routines, and gets along with our other greyhounds. We'll have more details on him soon.

Pops
Male
Size: Avg/Lg
(Available)
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. He is a "ladies man" in so much as he is very comfortable with women a little more so than men. He's affectionate, but will not pester or force himself on you for loves and pets. Pops would be a great addition for a greyhound savvy home that enjoys a quiet, laid back lifestyle.

Wizard
Male
Size: Avg/Lg
(Available)
Wizard
Bio: Wizard is a GORGEOUS black coated boy with white tuxedo markings. He is a wonderful boy in a home setting. He is a "social butterfly" and quickly warms to any human who comes his way. Wizard would do well in a work-from-home environment, or where he can go to work with you (which he has done in a foster environment.) We also feel he'd be fine with another laid back female, or even as an only pet. He walks well on lead and does stairs like a charm. Wizard has easily transitioned from racer to retiree, and is nothing short of an amazing pet companion!
