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!

Bailey
Male
Size: Avg/Lg

Bailey
Bio: Bailey is a fabulous, shiny, black coated boy who is smart, fun, and sweet. He gets along well with our other greys, and honestly, with just about everybody and everything! He's adjusting to retirement life nicely, and we'll have more details on him soon.

Hubble
Male

Hubble
Bio: Hubble is a great hound that's best described as versatile. He's happy when at play and just as happy lounging. He's making an easy transition from racer to retiree, and seems to enjoy getting to know us and our routines. He's just an overall happy, well adjusted boy and great companion...and looks a lot like our girl, Sparkler!

Kasha
Female
Size: Avg/Sm
(Available)
Kasha
Bio: Kasha is a sweet, beautiful girl. She's more of a follower than a dominant girl in the "pack" and would likely do best in a multiple pet, quiet home. She loves a soft hand and gentle touch. She would likely also do best in a home with a fenced yard. We'll have more in this precious girl as she continues to settle in.

Ritz
Female
Size: Sm/Avg
(Placed)
Ritz
Bio: This photogenic girl is another of our super sweet hounds. She's eager to please, loves interacting with us, and gets along very well with her other four-legged friends. Ritz is more reserved around strangers, but is nothing short of wonderful once she's in your home and heart. She enjoys walks, isn't fearful of storms or typical outside noises... even loud lawn equipment. She loves belly rubs, getting brushed, and whatever other interactive time you share with her. She eats and sleeps well, in the crate or out, though she does love her dog bed and being out in the center of things. She is an awesome girl, and will thrive in a home with a laid back lifestyle. Older kids and other pets would likely suit her. She's an adorable and very loving pet!
