GPATB Greyhounds Take To The Skies Again!

It's always news when our GPATB hounds reach their paws to the sky to find their Forever Homes. On May 30, 2015, six more of our amazing boys and girls headed to Baltimore with Jason, the wonderful pilot who navigates them safely to anxiously awaiting arms. "Finding Forever Homes" this time were Gold, Joci, Brindle, Norton, Pokie, and Bridget. They landed safely, and all are relaxing comfortably with the new humans in their lives!

Barney and Sneakers...A "Tail" of Two Brothers

Not so long ago two beautiful greyhound brothers were born into a litter of champions. Barney and Sneakers, one a beautiful Red with the most expressive eyes and dark snoot, the more serious of the two. The other a stunning White & Brindle boy, the playful, less serious boy. As time progressed and they went through training, everything seemed normal as racing greyhounds go.They were placed into a kennel at Derby Lane with a couple of their siblings, If you follow the racing at Derby Lane, their other brother is "Joey Ice" a multiple stakes winner and well known throughout the industry. Barney & Sneakers never did well as racers. Not unusual, as every family can't have multiple stars...but their story is just beginning. Click HERE to read the rest of the very special "tail" of these two littermates.

***IMPORTANT MEDICAL INFORMATION***

Greyhounds and Anesthesia...Know the Protocol

For years, veterinarians struggled with the oftentimes difficult and sometimes lethal outcomes when dealing with greyhounds and surgeries. Greyhounds have unique body chemistries, and even the most routine dental can end in tragedy if your veterinarian is not aware of the specific protocol(s) developed to prevent greyhounds from "crashing" both during surgery and post operatively. Fortunately, our pets have benefitted greatly from these new ways of dealing with anesthesia, and their liklihood of safely recovering have increased tremendously. If you are a greyhound owner, we highly recommend downloading the following document on Anesthesia Protocol for Greyhounds, and keep one for yourself, give one to your vet, and keep one in your automobile in case of an emergency. It could save your greyhound's life.
