Daves Hootergirl

Adoption Pending! 

Daves Hootergirl is a sweet, easy going, happy boy who is looking to bring you lots of love. Dave is a 7 year old male who is fully house acclimated and house broken. He enjoys other greyhounds and would be a greyt addition to any pack. He is ready to go on outings with you or relax next to you while you tell him about your day and give him lots of pets. He will do best in a home without cats or young children. He does well with older children.

About James River Greyhounds


James River Greyhounds is a non-profit organization dedicated to finding responsible, caring homes for retired racing greyhounds in the Central Virginia area including the Richmond Metro Area, west to the Charlottesville area, east to the Williamsburg/Newport News area, and south of the Fredericksburg area. Since 1989, we have found "forever homes" for more than 1350 greyhounds - and counting!  We are now partnered with Greyt Love Retirement (GLR) to bring even more greyhounds into the region!  GLR provides a shelter to foster greyhounds while they await their forever homes.
