This is our boy, Ryan. He is a 4 year old retired racing greyhound, adopted through The Homestretch Greyhound Rescue and Adoption in Fillmore, CA, http://www.homestretchgreys.org.
"Flyin' Ryan" had a hard life as a racer in Virginia and in Tucson, AZ, and was terrified of everything, especially men. When we adopted him in July, he would hide in the corner and shake until his teeth rattled. Our other greyhound, Kai, picked Ryan as his new house buddy. Since that time Ryan has come such a long way. We call him "Ryan the Brave". There is a perpetual grin on his face. He loves to steal all of the toys and hide them, steal our shoes and socks to curl up with at night, sample any books left within each, and he has a high reach, and play with his greyhound friends at playdates. Who knew that such a shy boy would turn into a happy hound full of bounce, sparkle and confidence!
