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!

Abe
Male
(Placed)
Abe
Bio: "Abe is a very sweet boy with a fun personality. He's adjusted very well to home life, and gets along quite nicely with our other greys and small dog. He doesn't mind his crate, but needs the door open. He stays readily behind tall baby gates, loves belly rubs, and interacting with people. He sleeps well through the night. He'd do great in a home where his humans have a reasonable amount of home time to enjoy his company. He's a very easy boy to mesh into a family, and is a great all around hound!"

TeeCee
Bio: "Tee Cee is a fun loving boy with a magnetic personality. He loves his favorite humans, and is absolutely a great ambassadog for the breed at our meet and greets. He likes to explore, so we'd recommend a fenced yard for some supervised turn out times where he can roam and romp. He would do well in an adult household, or with a family wit older teens. He also enjoys his knuckle bones, and lounging on his bed."

Female
(Placed)
Teena
Bio: "Teena's overall demeanor is happy. She wakes up in the morning wagging her tail...happy to start the day. She gives affection in GENTLE sweet ways and loves it in return. I work from home and she is the perfect companion - she's quiet and sleeps on her bed. Teena has excellent house manners. She enjoys walks, car rides, and backyard playtime. She can be shy with new people and pets, but warms up quickly. Teena's forever home would likely be calm with adults. She really seems to enjoy it when you talk to her...she's a good listener! Teena is a true love bug."
