Forever Dog

"Foster Dog"

I am practicing to be someone’s beloved pet. You will be my gateway to a whole new life. Because you have trusted me to be in your home, I am learning to trust. I have come from a structured environment where I spent a good deal of time with other Greyhounds. Please be patient with me while I learn to navigate through the unfamiliar surroundings of a home. I really want to please you and learn how to relax and soak up the love you have for me. Teach me to snuggle and show me how to play and be silly. One day when my special person comes along and decides to make me their very own, I will be so happy, but I will always remember my first teacher, my foster person. You gave me a chance, took me by the paw and taught me so much about life. Now I am complete.

Only with the help of loving foster homes can these Greyhounds learn the skills to become forever pets. With the current change in the racing industry, there will be more Greyhounds than ever, looking for a foster home and eventually a forever home. Please open your heart and your home, if possible, to help support the efforts of Greyhounds Unlimited. Through your empathy and generosity, we can make a new life for these wonderful Greyhounds.

The painting, by Denise Saleh, "Foster Dog", is a 24" x 30" oil on canvas with gallery finished edges. May be hung with or without frame. Metallic undertones with a dark distressed glaze and a visual nod to the numbers with which these dogs are often identified such as tattoos, racing silks etc. The dog in the painting is Keeper Bash (Winnie). She has just recently become a foster.

The drawing will be held on January 19, 2019 at PetSmart located at 6204 W Park Blvd · Plano, TX during the Meet and Greet. You do not have to be present to win.

Help by becoming a foster home!

Toy Hoarding Greyhound
She is quite comfortable in her new foster home...
We also hear that she has a toy-hoarding problem...

We are still in dire need of foster homes for our incoming hounds. Foster homes are the bridge that leads to a forever home for our adoptable hounds, giving them a head start on getting accustomed to living in a home instead of a kennel, teaching them all the new and wonderful things they will encounter in a home that they may never have seen before.

If you are ready to give fostering a try, please send an email to One of our foster coordinators will contact you to talk about fostering and how you might be able to help, what your obstacles might be and how we might overcome them together. We all want this to be a successful experience for you and your new foster!

Remember Erin?

After one year she is still sitting in the kennel and looking for her forever home and family!


We need your help in two ways. Obviously the first is to become her forever home and family. The second is to assist us financially until she finds her forever home.

She is currently being boarded and as I am sure you are aware, this is not cheap. She also eats approximately 6 cans of canned food a day.

Approximately one year ago we took in a beautiful two-year old brindle girl named Erin. She is now three-years old and has been in GU's care and waiting for over a year for a very Special Home that will take care of her with her medical condition known as megaesophagus. She is petite with big brown eyes that can steal your heart. She is loving, outgoing, and loves her walks and playing with toys. She is active and playful.

To date she is still in the kennel ... She really deserves that place to call home and a family that can take care of her.

Erin has a condition called megaesophagus. In the past, such a diagnosis was usually a death sentence. Severe cases make it impossible for a dog to hold down food and water. A healthy esophagus is a muscular tube that pushes what is swallowed into the stomach. A megaesophagus is like a deflated balloon. It collects food and water until it can take no more, at which point the dog regurgitates all that she has just swallowed. The goal of food management with megaesophagus is to get food out of the esophagus and into the stomach as quickly as possible.

Because of Erin's condition, she needs to eat in an elevated position to increase the angle of her esophagus. She has a "Bailey Chair" that allows her to sit upright while eating. She knows the routine and eats her food enthusiastically in this manner. After she eats, her head must be held upright for about ten minutes to prevent vomiting. Erin is very cooperative throughout the entire procedure. Also, she should not have access to food outside of monitored feeding times.
