“Glamorous and sleek!”

Today, we’re introducing you to two beautiful greyhounds: Luna and Pixie. They are our Spring 2019 cover dogs and you’ll definitely be seeing more of them around here.

These black beauties are glamorous and sleek! We were especially thrilled to feature them on Teryn Grey this month specifically because of their color. Did you know that there are superstitions around black dogs? Black greyhounds are the most difficult to find homes for. Perhaps it’s because their black coat is often dull and scruffy in the kennels or it ties back to ancient history when black was associated with evil. Some even say it’s because they simply don’t photograph well. Personally, we’d have to disagree with that statement because we think they look gorgeous in our photos. Wouldn’t you agree?

The Russet Greyhound Sanctuary is a nonprofit organization that has been rescuing, rehabilitating, and rehoming greyhounds for the past 11 years. As most newly adoptable greyhounds have never experienced life outside a kennel, many aren’t familiar with everyday sights and sounds. The Russet Greyhound Sanctuary offers the hounds a comfortable and nurturing environment until they find them forever homes. They also just hit a major milestone – celebrating 1,000 greyhounds homed!

Check out their available hounds and learn more about the adoption process here.
