Another Newbie Yet To Be Adopted By A Hound:p

Hello there! My name is Sacha, I'm 20 years old and from New Zealand.

I'd been looking around online for a while at different kinds of dog breeds, since I'd love to adopt when I finish studying and get a 'real' job. Long story short, I found out about greyhounds somehow, researched, went to one of GAP's meet and greets, and fell in love. The leaning in for pats! The soft ears! The big brown eyes! :wub: Plus, the idea of a dog that could keep up with me while speed skating (I play roller derby) is kind of awesome. Me and Mr. or Miss. future greyhound can bond over our times spent racing around a circular track really fast :P

I graduate in May next year and once I get a fabulous high paying job and a fabulous dog friendly place to rent (Yeah I'm sure that'll be a piece of cake...:lol) it's all on for adopting! In the meantime, I'm just going to have to settle for lurking around here and being jealous of all your cute dogs. Waiting sucks! Nice to meet you all!

Welcome! :welcome I spent years pining over greyhounds too, waiting until I graduated and had a house and job before I could finally adopt. It's so worth the wait!

Welcome from the DC area!

 

Greyhounds are indeed wonderful...no matter how long it take till you get to be owned by one (or more)!

Welcome from Boston! I know how hard it is to wait.....is there a greyhound adoption group nearby that you could volunteer with? That would be another great way to get your hound fix!!

Welcome!

 

I was in your position last year! I kept lurking around M&G wishing I would graduate already. Which I did, this past spring. I've got the job...now just waiting for things to settle down some more...

 

...if you ever want to gripe about waiting, I'm your woman!

Thanks for the warm welcomes! Nice to know there are other people who are or have been in my shoes.

weycoolgrey: I have a form I've been meaning to send off for months for more information about volunteering with GAP. I really, really need to get around to buying some stamps!
