We recently got an update on Allie from her mom and dad (Kathy and Jim) telling how well she is doing and what a wonderful addition to their family she has been!
Allie just loves her greyhound brother Ben, always having to be around him and often barks at him trying to get him to play with her! They get along wonderfully and really look out for each other.
She is also inseparable with Jim and Kathy’s daughter Angel and has been very happy that she is home from college for the summer. We have even have heard gossip that Allie enjoys lying on Angel’s bed while she gets ready in the mornings.
Allie remains very playful, stealing stuffed animals from anywhere and everywhere in the house and every morning races her brother Ben down the steps to the door, ready for their morning walk. She's a big snuggle bug too, cuddling with Angel every night after her night time walk!
Her health is excellent. She still gets drops in her eyes three times every day. She is really very good about getting her drops and her eye doctor says there has been a big improvement in her left eye. Although her right eye remains the same, it doesn’t seem to give her any discomfort.
All in all, it appears that Allie is just a happy, well adjusted, spoiled greyhound!

But, she didn’t
just bring back a vehicle, she brought back a sweet greyhound named Allie who needed a forever home.
worked in conjunction with one of
the local Florida adoption groups to obtain a
greyhound. Once Allie was brought north, Laura and her husband, Steve, fostered
Allie until she was adopted.
Leaving Tracks collaborated with the local
greyhound rescue group, GPA Wisconsin, throughout the process. If you would like

yet another lucky dog named Gable.
Leaving tracks is very happy to be partnering with
American Greyhound for this year's journey.
year it was our goal to bring back a black greyhound in order to raise
awareness that black animals are often overlooked in shelters and harder to
place. We also hope that the blog provides some insight of a greyhound’s
journey from the track to a forever home.
thanks to Laura, Steve, American Greyhound, our Atlanta stopover hosts, LTI's generous supporters, and all
the folks in Florida who made this journey for Gable possible.
