INCOMING GREYHOUNDS
 
Bombay, aka Fuzzys Time Bomb, is an almost 8-year-old black female born December 10, 2004. Her sire is Fuzzys Cannon, and her dam is Oneco Attitude. Bombay has no races to her credit on Greyhound-data.com, but she did whelp a litter of puppies in June 2008 with sire Maryville Rumble. This gal is looking forward to finding a loving home!

 

Ashton, aka Whistler's Twig, is a beautiful 9-year-old brindle female born March 8, 2003. Her sire is Craigie Whistler, making her grand sire Molotov, and her dam is Coastalcaribbean. Ashton's racing career was only 3 races all in November 2004 at Derby Lane in Florida. She is well mannered and very loving. Ashton has been in an adoptive home for seven years, but has returned to GALT to resume her search for a forever home. She will be happiest in a home without very small children to make her nervous.

 

Mars is a 5-year-old red male born November 2007. His registration number is not legible due to it being double tattooed, but his litter number is 117E. Mars was turned into the Tri-Cities Shelter and from there he came into the GALT family. This handsome fellow has very expressive ears! He was adopted for two months, but has returned to GALT to find a better fit for his forever home.
