Something horrible happened last night. A couple months back, our group took in a nearly 12 year old greyhound that had been placed on craigslist by his longtime owner. A couple fell in love with the hound and they were all set to have him delivered to their (perfect) home today. Last night, that hound, Quinn, slipped on tile floor, and was in extreme pain. He was rushed to the e-vet who confirmed a badly fractured humerus and osteosarcoma. We had no choice but to end his pain. The worst was having to call his adoptive parents, who were all excited that he was coming to his forever home the next day, and tell them that Quinn had passed away. Several of our adoption group members were able to go to the e-vet and tell Quinn goodbye. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

Quinn was so happy living with his foster mom, and would have loved his forever home that he should have been moving into today.

How sad. He was beautiful. :(

When a relationship of love is disrupted, the relationship does not cease. The love continues; therefore, the relationship continues. The work of grief is to reconcile and redeem life to a different love relationship. ~ W Scott Lineberry

Thanks, everyone. The adoptive family is shocked and grieving. I am hoping when they are ready, they will consider adopting another greyhound

Quinn would have been their first hound.

Run free, Quinn.

I am sure your foster family has wonderful memories ...

This is so heartbreaking for everyone---for precious Quinn, his foster family and all who loved him, and the wonderful people he would have spent his last years with. They must be very special to have wanted a 12 year old as their first hound. I hope they find someone to help their hearts heal.
