Lady, racing name Shady Lady, retired after 3 races and was selected to participate in The Greyhound Inmate Experience. TGIE places retired racing greyhounds in the care and supervision of specially selected and trained inmates of a correctional institution. The greyhounds and inmates engage in a 10-week training program. The greyhounds transition from racer to pet. The inmates experience unconditional love and learn to trust, be patient, and become compassionate. A wonderful Win-Win adventure.
Lady is a beautiful black 3-year-old girl with an adorable curly-cue tail. She has adapted well to her foster home and is quiet in bed, but will get excited and a little vocal when you approach her. She loves pets and ear scratches and will lean on you for more affection. Lady walks well on the leash and is getting used to the sounds of the neighborhood, although loud noises such as leaf blowers will still startle her a little bit. Squirrels do get her attention, but she can easily be distracted from them by continuing to walk on. She does a wonderful “sit” and responds to other commands such as down, shake, stay, and more. Lady appears to have a playful nature, playing with her stuffies. Lady gets along well with the resident greyhound and enjoys meeting people while on walks.
Lady graduated on 10/20 from The Greyhound Inmate Experience and will be available for approved adopter visits on 11/05. Please check back for updates as she settles into her foster home.
