Kebo is a gorgeous black girl who loves to check out her surrounding, particularly with her ears up. She is a confident but cautious girl who looks first before jumping into a new situation. She has nice leash manners and enjoys her suburban walks–calmly passing school buses, lawn mowers, trucks and cars.
Kebo likes her crate and crates quietly during the work day. She has recently discovered the joy of dog beds and loves to spend time napping at her foster parents feet. She is a very quiet dog and has only barked a few times. The recent loud thunder storm did not faze her at all.
Kebo is an older girl. She was a fast racer and then was retired to be a brood mama. She is looking for a forever home that will be patient with her as she fully adjusts to retired life. So far, it is clear that she has the “couch potato” idea firmly in her sights as her future career goal.
She will be available for approved adopter visits on 6/22/2018.
The special nature of a brood mama is best explained below by Dennis McKeon, a well respected former greyhound trainer. Mr. McKeon writes many articles about greyhounds that are highly informative. “There is nothing more valuable to a greyhound breeder than a brood female who is a good mother, and who can birth and help him raise offspring that are viable racing competitors. While there are dozens of fine and productive sires, any of whom a breeder may choose to mate with his female, the average breeder considers himself extremely fortunate if, at any given time, he has more than one female who is able to pass on desirable traits to offspring, and to produce greyhounds who can perform and compete at a high level. Many racing dynasties can all trace their origins to but a single brood matron. Great brood females are often referred to as “blue hens”—which is a testament to their value and rarity. So, in any successful breeding operation, the brood females are the focus of attention, and the linchpin to whatever success is to be realized. They are, in the hands of all but the most obtuse breeders, treated in a manner that reflects their crucial importance. Which is why they make such loving and endearing pets.” Kebo (racing name Kebo Urlacher)  Kebo (racing name Kebo Urlacher)
