And a big shout out to Dakota Expressions for all their support!
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!
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.
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.
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!
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!
year at this time, a Chicago LTI volunteer, Laura Reynolds Anderson left cold,
windy Chicago to transport a clients' car back from Florida.
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
to read about Allie’s journey north, please check out her blog at Lucky Florida
year, Laura and Steve have made another journey to Florida to bring back her clients' car in
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.
Allie's Journey Home
Allie has found her forever home!
Due to the collaborative efforts of Marilyn Varnberg of Greyhound Adoptions of Florida, GPA Wisconsin, two very special sponsors, foster mom Laura Reynolds Anderson, and Leaving Tracks, this lucky Greyhound has started her new life filled with bountiful love, soft beds and gentle hands.
