You'll be doing flips for Flipper! Flipper, aka My Dog Flipper, is a 5-year-old brindle male born on October 11, 2008. Flipper's sire is Maryville Rumble and his dam is N's Sky High. Flipper has a long career of 192 races on record at, starting in May 2010 and finishing up in August 2013. He was a grade A racer who raced at several tracks in several states. Talk about ready for retirement!

Flipper should not live with cats.

If you like the tall, dark, handsome type with soulful eyes - Flipper is your guy! With Flipper around you are never alone. He will follow us everywhere and his reward is a look, pat on the head, kiss, hug or all of the above. His dark brindles don't extend to his chest, belly or butt - so when he roaches, beware of the glare of light skin. Flipper loves to ride in the car, go on walks or play with whatever toys are around. The most unique feature is his short tail which has a personality all its own! It vibrates, wags and does a greyt mini-helicopter! This guy sleeps well at night and gets up early to greet the day. He minds well and if he gets on the furniture, all you have to do is ask him to get off and he will. Flipper is food motivated, but not food aggressive, and his one vice is counter surfing - anything remotely edible is a target. He has taught us more than once to put things away. Flipper does fine with other dogs and would be a greyt only dog as long as there are plenty of toys, chewies and no kitties. Won't you consider this handsome fella as your forever companion?

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. Of course, we can be with them in spirit, Register for our team to raise funds or donate to one of our existing team members here. Your donation is tax-deductible and all the money raised will go to help GALT's greyhounds. Together, we can live up to our standard of "No Grey Turned Away!"
