TODAY: Greyhounds available for adoption at Sun’s Broomfield Campus

Mile High Race Track has closed and there is a fantastic group of greyhounds now up for adoption via Recyled Racers and Colorado Greyhound Adoption. Some of the dogs will be on site at the Sun Broomfield Campus today from 11AM to 1PM for an employee meet and greet.

If you are in the market for a dog, please consider a greyhound. They have such a calm, sweet demeanor (tho’ every one has it’s own personality, of course). Lola (our greyhound pictured on the left), was very easy to train when we introduced her to our home. She’s super sweet with our cats and any kids that may visit. Her doggie manners were excellent when we introduced her to our other dog, Ellie (pictured on the right).

For those worried about not having space for a big dog, greyhounds are very graceful and super relaxed. Lola spends most of her time napping in my office and is a total indoor dog for the most part, but there’s nothing more heart-warming than to see her running on her own terms in her own yard — you can hear the thump of her feet. It’s beautiful

I’m going to drop by the event today — just to visit. I’m already two pets over the legal limit, but keep that on the down low. 😉

P.S. If you’re not in Colorado, but are interested in adopting a greyhound, search for your local greyhound rescue here:

    Thanks for the Blog, since I always wondered if they make good bets. Too bad I’m not in Broomfield. My only concern would be keeping up with them, if I go running.

    Hi Alfred. I’m not sure if this applies to all greyhounds, but Lola is not a good running partner because she’s more about sprints than stamina. She’ll conk out in the middle of a run with me, but will run sprints in the yard.

    There is a problem with having a Greyhound.
    After about 2 week you will find that 1 may not be enough. You may become a greyhound addict. This is OK, if you don’t have room for more than 1, most greyhound people are more then happy to meet at dogparks or were ever so you can share a greyhound overdose.
    A road traveled with a friend is not as long.
