Greetings From N. Il!

My husband and I just adopted our first dog and first greyhound from the racetrack in IA. We have had Niles almost 3 weeks. He is my joy! I cannot even remember what my life was like before this big, loving, silly dog was a part of it. We are all still adjusting, but every day seems to be a little better. Niles is starting to play with his toys and chew his rawhides. We have 4 cats, and when we are home, he has adjusted so well that we let him out of his crate to sleep on his fancy pillow while we are relaxing in the living room.

 

I love looking at all the greyt photos on here. I look forward to being a member of this greyt community!

Niles is indeed from the Dubuque racetrack - we adopted him straight from the kennel adoption program there. He unfortunately only had 1 race there. But, thanks to that, he joined our family! We love him to pieces and he is a spoiled rotten pup.

 

His racing name was NMS Flyin Cannon.

I live on the Southwest Side of Chicago. Hope you bring your new hounds to some local meet and greets. It is really helpful to expose your new hound to people and other dogs. Get him used to the big, new world around him. Check out Regap of Illinois Event Page to see where our meet and greets are held. We don't care where you adopt from, we would love to meet you and your hound.

Welcome to Greytalk, you will learn so much from everyone and get to know some pretty amazing people and hounds.

Janice, Luka and Peace

Hello there! I have adopted Niles' brother! Ernie (racing name NMS Flying Loose) lives in Snowy Boston and spent his racing days at a track in Sarasota, FL. We adopted him in August from a Mendon, MA greyhound adoption group.

 

Will you post some pictures of Niles?!

Hi mmreac. We just adopted NMS Flying Fire Niles's sister. We call her Flame. I hope he's just as sweet as she is. I would love to see a picture of him. I'm trying to post a pic of her.

We adopted Flame's brother, Ernie (originally named NMS Flying Loose). I followed Flame's racing career because I wanted to see if she'd keep on racing or be up for adoption. So glad she's now living the retired life!!!
