PAD of our Foster Friend, a Rescued Greyhound

Please visit my new site at http://dankehlenbach.zenfolio.com


For two weeks, my wife and I fostered a rescued greyhound. He is a three year old brindle and we got him on Saturday December 2, after he had endured a long truck ride from Melbourne, Florida. Needless to say, since he was right off the racetrack he has no idea what life is like in a home. We had to gradually introduce him to the many things that he is not used to. Racing greyhounds are used to spending nearly all of their day in a kennel taken out to run on the track, relieve themselves and eat. Once adjusted to home life, however, they become loyal, loving companions and they truly realize that they have been rescued.

I have put together a PAD (Photos-a-day) project on him for 14 days to share our experiences.


After the two weeks he will be with his new family. Until then, we gave him lots of love and encouragement and welcome him with open arms.

Please vote to help encourage awareness for these truly wonderful companions.
