Description: Julie has been adopted twice. Her first adopter apparently decided Greyhounds weren't for her after all and left her at a shelter. From there she was adopted to a man who took her to his farm and allowed her to run loose, never having been educated to the ways and needs of Greyhounds. He provided her with a dog house, not believing dogs belong in the house. When she started killing cats, he kept her tied to her dog house. BTW, this is not a "stolen" dog. She was given up voluntarily.

Julie has lived outdoors for roughly 6 months, but she has excellent house manners (at least so far). She loves water and thoroughly enjoyed her first bath, as well as a dip in the wading pool. She's very sweet and gentle and gazes adoringly at anybody who shows her any attention. She bonds VERY quickly but seems happily adaptable to any situation. She ate well her first night here, which is a bit unusual for a foster in a strange place. She is also an excellent car passenger.

Julie will make an excellent pet in a cat-free home. All she seems to want is somebody to love her forever.
