Love like a Hoss! Hoss, aka Kiowa Hoss Henry, is a 3-year-old dark brindle male born April 14, 2011. His sire is Wigwam Hoss and his dam is Kiowa Olivia. He has 38 races on record at all in Florida, starting in December 2012 and finishing up in February 2014. He's going to be a wonderful pet!

Hoss should not live with cats.


Hoss was very timid and unsure of everything when he came to our house.  However, since then, he has embraced living in a home and retirement whole-heartedly.   He is one of the calmest dogs you will ever meet (unless you have food/treats).  He likes to go on walks, he loves his bed(s).  He is a lover.  He wants to be where you are and likes to be petted.   He rides well in the car - as long as he can get comfortable, he lays down and takes the opportunity to take a nap.  He handles teeth brushing and bath time like a champ. Hoss is sure to get right into your heart!

Strutt Your Mutt logo

It's that time of year again - when we strut our stuff for the GALT greyhounds. The best part is that you can strut anywhere - in your neighborhood, at the gym or even by just kicking back on your couch if that is your preferred style. You don't need a greyhound to strut; you don't even need a dog! The Central Texas GALT representatives will be stepping out this year in Austin on September 13th in the Best Friends Strut Your Mutt Walk and need our support. If you're interested in participating in the actual walk in Austin, please contact us for more details. We can, of course, be with them in spirit, Please join us for this fun-filled event either by registering for our team to raise funds or by donating to one of our existing team members. Your donation is tax-deductible and all the money raised will go to help GALT's greyhounds. Together, and through your support, we can live up to our standard of "No Grey Turned Away!"

To donate via CASH or CHECK instead of CREDIT CARD, please make the check out to Greyhound Adoption League of Texas or enclose a note with the cash and send to:
