New Family Member

It was bound to happen. We're adding a new family member!

His name is Shooter, it's another greyhound. There has been a large influx of greyhounds into the rescue groups because of poor track conditions. Shooter has been sitting at the Waukesha Humane Society (HAWS) since October and he needs a home. In addition to his adoption video (which you can see on the link above), he also appeared on The Morning Blend, a local morning talk show, a few months back. What a superstar, but now he's ours.

He leaves for his foster home tomorrow and will join us for good the following Sunday.

Tessie and Shooter have met, and they seem to get along fine. As a side note, the two are distant cousins. You can check out greyhound pedigree here. Pretty cool link if you have a greyhound!

It's great you guys are adopting again! And Shooter is very handsome...I think you'll find that having 2 pooches isn't much more work than having one, and they'll be able to entertain each other!
