Today I went to the adoption area for Greyhounds of the Verde Valley, held at the Fall Festival in Camp Verde, AZ. They had six dogs present. One was the most beautiful brindle you've ever laid eyes on. He was also very full of himself. He was continuously trying to escape the fencing, by squeezing through the one inch opening, or jumping up on the fence, and generally thinking mischief.
Another was a lovely red boy, who was calm and good mannered but had recently killed a cat.
Third was a smaller red girl with her tail completely tucked up between her legs, shaking with fear, unable to hardly breath she was so fearful. Poor girl!
A black girl called Sedona, who had some adjustment problems at her foster home.
Another brindle dog, and one more red boy.
Finally, a black boy 18 months old, white chin, white chest, white feet and white tipped tail. He was walking like he was in pain, and didn't want to walk at all. Turns out he had an accident in a recent race, got his feet and legs torn up. One toe had to be amputated( it's still bandaged), and the other feet are abraded, scuffed ankles, and wrists as well. Tomorrow I will go to his vet and the stitches on the amputation will be removed. I hope to find out the extent of his injuries and find out what I need to do to get the best healing possible.
