Meet Jefferson

Recommended Posts

About a month before I lost Joe, I was near NGAP and decided to go walk dogs. (They have open walking hours.) The first dog I walked was a hulking white and red brindle they were calling Nacho. The dog velcrod himself to my leg, didnt pull, and was sweet as pie. I wished him well and left.

 

I called the adoption coordinator the day Joe died and asked if Nacho was still available. He was, and I made an appointment for Black Friday, less than a week later. Nacho, racing name Jefferson, came home the same day. With Brees now living at her Daddys new place, I needed a greyhound riteawayqwik.

 

Jefferson is a very good boy. He has a little SA, but Im working on it. Not much prey drive, so the neighborhood cats are mostly safe. Hes cuddly as hell and wags his tail constantly. Gets along well other dogs, and was fine with Brees when I had her last weekend. He forgives me when I call him Joe.

If anyone has current contact info for Zombrie, she was his trainer. Id love to let her know he landed with me and see if she has any pics of him.

Handsome and a lovebug -- who could ask for more?

 

He forgives me when I call him Joe.

Joe would not be able to conceive of you not having a hound. :grouphug
